Top Courier related questions

Do I need a specialist licence for courier services?

For certain types of tasks, you may need to enquire as to what specialist licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant courier licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

What is a courier service?

Courier services pick up and deliver mail, documents, small packages, and large items. They’ll pick up from your residential or commercial address and deliver the item to its destination using a suitably equipped vehicle.

What are some of the most common items delivered via courier services?

Couriers can deliver almost anything, but the most common items include legal documents, gifts, office supplies, books, car parts, and musical instruments. Some couriers can help deliver large items like furniture, but most have a list of items you can’t send, including live animals, firearms, or dangerous goods.

What are the benefits of hiring a courier service near me, rather than a courier company?

By finding a courier service near you, you’ll have more control of your pickup and delivery times because they are less likely to be constrained by a specific timetable. And with lower overheads, they may be able to offer you a lower price.

How should I prepare my items for the courier?

Packing your item correctly will help it arrive safely and undamaged. Choose an appropriately sized box and fill any empty spaces with packing material to protect your item. If you have multiple items in a box, wrap each item individually to provide greater protection. Seal the box and any loose edges to ensure it doesn’t open during transit. You should also clearly mark the delivery name and address so it doesn’t get lost.

How long does a courier service normally take to deliver?

You can usually choose a time frame for delivery that suits you. Most courier services will offer express, same day, overnight, or standard delivery. Some couriers may charge more if you need your item delivered sooner.

How much does a courier service cost?

A courier service costs between $40-$100 when you hire your delivery person through Airtasker. But the exact price will vary depending on the size of the item, where you’re sending it, and how quickly you need it delivered.

What do courier services include?

There are many options when you’re looking for courier services in Australia. And there’s no need to limit your choices to big courier companies. Here are some delivery options you can choose when using courier service:

Express delivery

If you need to urgently deliver a customer’s order or get important legal documents signed, you can arrange an express delivery via a courier. Express services are generally used for late-notice items that can be picked up and delivered easily. Most couriers will offer a 2-3 hour turnaround between pickup and drop off, depending on your location. They’ll come to your home or business, pick up the items, and deliver them directly to their destination as quickly as possible.

Local or same-day delivery

Local or same-day delivery services are perfect for those customer deliveries or freight pickups across town that you just can’t get to. You could even use a courier service to pick up your grocery order or move your furniture. Your courier will generally offer several pickup and delivery times throughout the day, so you have more options to get your parcel or item to its destination.

Overnight delivery

Overnight delivery is a popular choice for pickup and delivery if your items don’t need to get to their destination urgently as it’s often cheaper than same-day delivery. It’s popular for flatpack furniture, rugs, or car parts. There’ll usually be one pickup time during the day, and a designated drop off time depending on the location of your delivery. You can use this service as a one-off, or book a regular courier meet the needs of your business.

Interstate delivery

Some courier services manage their own interstate deliveries or partner with interstate courier services to make sure your parcel or item reaches its destination. Your item could be picked up by local service and taken to a depot to be sorted for delivery. These deliveries may take several days and sometimes up to a week to get to the recipient, depending on their location.

Overseas delivery

If you’re running an online business with global customers, or you just want to send a care package to a family member overseas, using an overseas courier delivery service could be cheaper than posting your items. By speaking with your courier in advance, you can get information on parcel weights and charges so you’re aware of the costs involved. For some overseas services, you may need to drop your item to a depot for onforwarding.
