The mail services in your area are great to an extent. They will get the job done and your package will get to its destination however there is no guarantee that it will get there fast and secure. Even if you use the regular mail service for express packages at a higher cost, there is still no guarantee that it will get to where you need it to in the time required.
A cheap courier London service is different from a regular mail service in that it can deliver your packages within the same day to your destination. There are some restrictions of course and its usually time constraints based on traffic in your area and the distance that the package needs to get to. The farther the distance the harder it will be to get it there on time, so it could drive the price up. The same could apply to how fast you want it to get there and the size of the package.
It’s often important to use a transport courier service because of their speed and reliability. When you have multiple offices and branches and there is a need for supplies, pay checks, a document requiring a signature, legal documents, blueprints, etc… that need to move quickly from building to building, then the courier can get them there. The services that are provided range from company to company and they can be more than just a speedy delivery service. They can collect that signature you need on a document to be processed for court or for a customer’s approval in a loan. Papers can be served to another person by using a courier, so you can be sure they receive it. Perhaps you want to send a loved one a special necklace or bracelet and want it there fast, knowing they received it.
Be sure and utilize the services of the transport company early to be sure to receive delivery by 5 pm the same day. Most companies have a cut off time before 12 pm to get it there the same day and very few will deliver after 5 pm.
The weight alone may be a factor since there is a limit to what a driver can safely lift, load and unload from the van. Quite a number of courier companies have size restrictions since packages have to fit into automatic sorting machines at the depot. If your package exceeds these limits you may well need a courier that specialises in larger items or a man and van service.
Obviously, the distance travelled will be a major factor. The price will vary considerably between a parcel going ten miles and a parcel going from, say, London to Edinburgh.
