4 Courier Mistakes You'll Want To Avoid!
No matter what type of business you run, package delivery is critical. Receiving your packages when promised is something that can really make or break a business, depending on the industry. This week’s Velocity Courier Service LLC blog discusses five common courier mistakes you should avoid to ensure your packages arrive on time.
USING THE WRONG PACKAGING
One of the number one mistakes we see here at Velocity Courier Service LLC is that our customers often use the wrong packaging. Many times, our customers throw their packages in the first box they see, regardless of how well the contents fit inside.
Why does this matter? The type of packaging you choose can greatly affect the cost of shipping. You should be sure to use a box or envelope that’s not too big for your delivery, as it can cost you and the courier company extra, unnecessary money. If your box is way too big for your package, you are going to have to add extra materials and padding to keep it safe, which you’ll also have to pay for — so really, you’re just paying extra for empty space, when you could just use a smaller box.
LACKING ATTENTION TO DETAIL
When mailing packages, attention to detail is crucial. You should never assume that you can estimate the weight, size, package type, or costs. Instead, you should confirm these details before you ship your package off. If the weight you told the courier and the actual weight of the package are off, you’ll be charged for it. These extra costs can be easily avoided by preparing your package correctly while it’s still in your possession.
UNCLEAR DELIVERY INSTRUCTIONS
Have special delivery instructions that our team at Velocity Courier Service LLC needs to follow to successfully deliver your package? Be sure to tell us ahead of time so we can ensure secure and on-time delivery.
Delivery instructions can include things such as where you want your package left, whether a particular person needs to sign for the delivery, any “secret” or hidden entrances our team members may have to go through to reach the destination, etc. Please be sure to clearly state these instructions so that our team members can work as quickly as possible, ensuring your package reaches its destination on time.
