No one likes paying more than you have to. Delivery and courier charges are no different! We’re outlining the top 3 costly courier mistakes we see when booking your same-day delivery.
Mistake #1: Overestimating Time
You’re worried that your shipment won’t make it in time so you overestimate the level of service (delivery speed) you require – which can cost you more than necessary.
At Select Delivery Systems, we have 4 levels of same-day delivery in Calgary:
- Delivery within 4 hours of when order is placed
- Delivery within 2 hours of when order is placed
- Delivery within 1 hour of when order is placed
- Door to door
We’re great “guesstimators” and our delivery times are rarely delayed so if you need help choosing the right level of service, give us a call!
Mistake #2: Delivery during closed hours
There are certain times that some companies don’t accept deliveries simply because they aren’t open or no one’s there to accept the delivery. Lunchtime for instance, can be one of those times. If this happens the driver has to leave and come back for a re-delivery. This typically incurs additional costs but can be easily avoided by alerting us about scheduled closures.
Mistake #3: Providing the wrong information
Whether that’s an order number from a manufacturer, a contact name, or phone number, if our driver is having issues locating the package for delivery because of incorrect information, that’s additional unplanned time that may have to be charged for. The solution? Make sure you’re providing the correct information and a contact person in case any issues arise.
Luckily, all these costly courier mistakes can be avoided to guarantee a smooth delivery experience.
Whether you have corporate documents, boxes, larger items on pallets, construction material, industrial piping, or large printing supplies and signs, our wide range of fleet vehicles can handle it. Trust us for your same-day truck delivery services!
