We offer a huge range of services and we’re confident that we can make your business even better. Are you ready to find out why you need to hire us as your local courier? Keep reading!

1. Same-Day Delivery Boosts Customer Satisfaction

Since Prime Now, Amazon’s same-day delivery service, launched, the business benefits of same-day delivery have been made plain to see. Customers that opt for same-day delivery spend more on Amazon and buy from them more frequently, according to this report in CNBC.

It makes sense, doesn’t it? If a customer knows that they can get what they need the same day, they’re less likely to venture out of the house to buy it.

Whatever your business is, we can handle your products for you and get them to your customers on the same day. Local couriers can pick up your goods and take them out on their rounds. This will make your existing customers happier and net you more customers through word of mouth!

2. We’re Affordable

We’re not like the huge courier companies that dominate the market. We’re not going to charge you an arm and a leg for next-day delivery. Instead, we’ll charge competitive rates for next and same-day delivery in your local area.

We understand how important your business is and will give you the best possible service. If you want to employ local couriers who will give your deliveries a personal touch, choose us.

3. Local Couriers Are Easy to Contact

Let’s say that you need to get in touch with your courier. If you’re using one of the larger delivery companies, this can be a huge task. You’ll be routed through call centers and bounced around from staff member to staff member.

This isn’t the case with local couriers. Our local office will handle fewer packages than the giants, making it easier to track your package, ask questions, make payments, and communicate order changes.

If anything changes with your order and you need to tell us, we’re going to be easier to contact than large companies.

4. Easy to Scale Up With Your Business

As your business grows, your demands will too. The good news is that if you have a local courier contracted to your business, you can upscale and downscale at will.

Let’s say that you attract 500 more customers this month than last month: how are you going to handle the new orders? The answer lies with local couriers.

All that you’d need to do is contact us and tell us that you need more parcels delivered and we’ll take care of the rest. There’s no strain on you and no strain on your customers: everything will still get exactly where it needs to be.

5. Local Couriers Know Your Local Area

One of the biggest advantages of using a local courier delivery service is that your courier will know the lay of the land. Your local area isn’t an unknown to them: they work here all year round, so know exactly which way to go. They will know the best routes to any destination in your city, town, village, and surrounding areas.

One of the prime advantages of this local knowledge is that your courier won’t be obstructed by road closures or other delays. They will know alternative routes that can get them to their destination on time and you’ll never miss a delivery again.

6. We Take Good Care of Your Packages

Larger courier warehouses are massive, impersonal affairs. Tens of thousands of packages can rub shoulders, overseen by hundreds of staff, which creates an impersonal atmosphere and can sabotage the level of care given to your package.

When you use local couriers, this isn’t part of the equation. There aren’t as many parcels in our local warehouses, so there’s less chance of mishandling your packages. As we only serve the local area, there’s a more tangible connection between our couriers and you, too.

All of this results in better service and better care for your packages. You are a bigger part of our business, and that demands a certain level of care that only local couriers can provide.

7. We’re Reliable

If you need to send a package to a customer, where do you go? Do you go to the post office and mail it off by hand? Do you have any way of knowing where your parcel is once it’s out of your hands?

With Need It Now, you get a reliable service that you can track every step of the way. We can collect your package from you and make sure that it gets to its destination every single time. No more failed deliveries and no more lost business.

We have locations all across the country, so no matter where your parcel is going, we’ve got you covered.

8. Less Stress For You

Running your business is your job, not acting as a go-between for couriers. You don’t want to have to take your package to a parcel shop or even to the mailbox on the street.

When you use us, we can pick up your parcels from you in no time at all. You don’t have to do anything, just give us the packages when we arrive and you’re set.
