Eagle Express, Scheduled Deliveries in DFW

The answer to the question "how early is too early" really depends on the topic. The answer to, “How early is too early to show up to for a date?” is going to differ from the answer to, “How early is too early to start planning for retirement?”


If you’re asking, “How early is too early to schedule your DFW deliveries?” the answer is simple. It’s never too early to plan scheduled deliveries in DFW. In fact, Eagle Express makes that process simple. With just one phone call, you can give our team the pertinent information such as:


  • Frequency of deliveries (hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly)
  • Number of stops (How many stops will we deliver to or from?)
  • Pick up or drop off time frames
  • Other specifics (temperature control, signature capture, photo delivery, etc.)


With this information, we can create a delivery schedule to meet your company’s specific needs. Then your deliveries are set until you say otherwise. Have last minute changes or permanent changes to your delivery schedule? We can accommodate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, even if we’re already in route. Our dispatchers are in touch with our drivers at all times.


Now that you’re informed on your T&L version of the “how early is too early” debate, let’s move on to an incredibly topical question of the day: How early is too early to decorate for Christmas?


Each year, it seems decorations, catalogs, and toys are displayed earlier and earlier. It’s September, but your favorite hardware store likely has Christmas lights available for purchase, department stores are displaying holiday merchandise, and many of us are already planning our wish lists and trying to figure out how we’re going to afford it all!


Newsflash: It’s September.


But the ultra-prepared (or maybe ultra-excited) ones are saying that the earlier you put up Christmas decorations and plan for the holiday season, the better. In fact, science and accountants agree.


Some psychoanalysts suggest that early decorators aren’t as looney as we might think. In contrast, they might be doing it right. Science tells us that folks who decorate early are excited, and they’re simply happier than the rest of us. They just can’t wait to get into the Christmas spirit, which, in turn, makes them happier. Decorating creates a neurological shift, takes us out of our daily norm, and signals to our senses that It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year. It’s not just decorating that makes us happier, either.


Planning for the holidays includes some financial thought. The earlier we begin planning those gifts and travel expenses, the more time we have to save for them or take advantage of better deals. Setting a budget and a list early gives us time to find good prices and limits that panicked spending that often occurs when we let ourselves get down to the wire. Not to mention, things like plane tickets and expedited shipping cost more the closer you get to Christmas. Planning and spending now can save you in the long run.


Undoubtedly, you have your own opinion on this matter. Whether you’re the type who has a rotting pumpkin on your front porch until Christmas Eve, or you’re putting up your Christmas tree on November 1st, Eagle Express has a service for you.
