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:
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 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.
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.
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.
