Every single day, you’re faced with many decisions. "To go" or "for here"? Premium or midgrade? White bread or wheat? With seemingly endless options, it can be difficult to know which one is the best choice for you. (Unless, of course, you’re faced with any question regarding the nature of dessert. In that case, there is no question. You choose dessert.)
It’s no different when you’re facing a decision regarding your transportation and logistics processes. In order to make the best choice about your Dallas courier service, it’s best to ask yourself a few questions. Giving your courier these vital pieces of information ensures that your delivery will arrive on time, in the condition in which you sent it.
As you prepare to ship your important items, it’s necessary to ask yourself the following questions:
Where do your items need to go?
One of the most important steps in getting your delivery to the right place at the right time is knowing where that place is. Is your item moving within city limits? Across town? Throughout the state? Or across the country? Once you know where your items need to go, you can ask yourself the next question.
Speed is one of the most important factors in determining your delivery service. If your items have to move across the country, a custom critical delivery can move them as quickly as possible. This service gives you a designated vehicle and driver. Your items stay with our team from start to finish. There are never any handoffs. If you need your items to move across town, we offer delivery times from 45 minutes to 4 hours, to economy or overnight shipping. How fast you need your item to move will depend on its importance and how much you’re willing to spend on the service.
Are the items sensitive in nature?
To ensure your items’ efficacy and safety during travel, you’ll need to inform your courier of any special handling instructions. This would include temperature control, fragile handling, or anything that involves hazardous materials or patient privacy. Professional couriers are trained in HIPAA and OSHA standards, ensuring your healthcare items are cared for properly. They’re also trained in HazMat, which means your chemicals, fluids, and other toxic materials are safely handled.
Do you need any extra services?
To top off your delivery, you’ll want to consider the available extras. White glove service is a popular option where your delivery team will unload your items, set them up, and remove the packaging. This is especially beneficial for heavy items, or items that come in many different boxes. You could also opt for signature confirmation, GPS tracking, or photo delivery. With these extras, you’ll know where your items are at all times during the delivery process.
