When you have something important or time-sensitive to transport, you may choose to use a same day courier in Edinburgh to make the delivery for you. If you would like to know more about same day delivery and how it works, let’s take a look.
What is same day delivery?
Same day delivery is exactly as the name suggests – your consignment will be delivered to its destination on the same day it is collected from you. This service is available for both last-minute emergency consignments and pre-booked deliveries. The deliveries will take place using an appropriate vehicle; for example, for inner city deliveries, this could be a motorcycle.
What type of package can be shipped on the same day?
The most common same day deliveries are medical supplies, important legal documents and perishable food items, but there are few limits and almost every package can be collected and delivered the same day if there is a need to do so.
How quickly will my package be delivered?
This depends on the distance that needs to be covered; however, all parcels accepted for a same day delivery service will be delivered on the day they are collected. Most emergency consignments will be collected by your same day courier Edinburgh within the hour.
How much does same day delivery cost?
There are many factors that affect the price of your delivery, including the type of vehicle that is required, the distance to be travelled, and the speed with which you require the consignment to be collected.
Can same day deliveries be tracked?
Yes, you will receive a tracking number to enable you to access real-time delivery information. Deliveries are automatically insured to a value of circa £500, with additional cover available for a small fee.
