If you run a small business, you know that it can be frustrating to ship packages and paperwork. There can be long delays, interruptions, and many other issues that can cause problems with your packages. This, in turn, may cause problems with your clients.


You may wish to hire a private courier service instead. This gives you a range of benefits, including:

Faster Delivery

When you hire a private courier service, your items are the only ones being shipped. That means they will arrive rapidly and get to their destination in record time. If you pride yourself on offering fast, easy delivery, then this system is the best way to go.


There is no waiting with a private courier. They will simply deliver the package or paperwork and move on to the next job. This means your recipient will get exactly what they need, sometimes within the hour, depending on the location.

More Reliable

No one wants their package sitting in a warehouse somewhere for days on end. With a private courier, this won’t happen. The package is picked up and delivered, without a side trip to a holding place.


It’s also important to note that many courier companies that manage huge amounts of packages per day will end up moving rapidly and tossing the packages around. If this happens, breakage or damage to the contents may occur. Going private allows you to ensure the safety of your package.

Simple to Use

Couriers provide a very easy-to-use service. You can often arrange everything online and have an account that will make the process even easier for you. They also schedule your pickup and delivery, then choose your preferences in regards to packaging, delivery time, cost, etc. This will make everything very quick to arrange. In most cases, you can request that you are notified when the package is delivered so you know it has arrived. Some couriers may even provide tracking info so you can see the route taken.


Whether you run a large or a small business, hiring a private courier is a good business investment. You’ll save money over building your own delivery fleet and it can be easier to manage as well. There’s no need to worry about maintenance or insurance since all of that is taken care of for you.
