Large parcel delivery services include weighing the package, checking dimensions and making the quote based on these variables and the company’s rates. Other services include express delivery, same-day delivery, next-day (overnight) delivery and overseas delivery. Weighing, Pricing, Collection and Delivery
Pricing your large parcel by size and weight can’t be done by sight alone. As taskers go to your home or office to collect the package for delivery, they will first measure and weigh your parcel to ensure these are priced right. Taskers can also bring the appropriate transport, be it a boxed cargo van or lorry. Express Delivery
When you need a service to deliver your large parcel quickly, choose express delivery. In this type of service, taskers can weigh, price, load, and transport your package quicker than most standard services.
You can expect your large parcel to arrive at its destination in town within 2-3 hours, longer if the destination is of a greater distance. Use this service when delivery of your large parcel is time-sensitive; remember that this is the most costly service. Same-Day Delivery
Another way to get your large parcel delivered quicker is by using same-day delivery. This type of large parcel delivery service
is faster than sending it via post, but not as fast nor as costly as express delivery. Be sure to book your courier service early in the day, as taskers compile all large parcels to be delivered then leave once the transport is full.
This type of service is excellent for online stores, as you can deliver goods to an actual store or a central hub for customers to pick up their purchases. Next-Day (Overnight) Delivery
Next-day large parcel delivery is the least expensive type of service as it is not as quick as same-day or express delivery. This is an excellent service to use when you are not in a rush to get your large and heavy parcel delivery completed. This type of delivery is well-suited to supplying your store with goods the next day and fulfilling online orders from customers. Overseas Delivery
When you need to send a care package
to a friend or relative abroad, or you have a small business that sells and delivers merchandise globally, you can use this service. Some courier services that offer overseas delivery also provide a means of tracking your large parcel in real-time so you can know precisely where it is and see how the delivery is progressing.
