Same day is a courier service that Piranha Parcels operate out of Swindon & all over the UK. But what is same day, why is it important and why is it something your business could benefit from?
These are some of the questions I hear regularly, so I thought I'd write a blog post to explain why exactly same day couriers can prove to be an integral part of your business.
What is same day?
In terms, same day delivery is as simple as it sounds. It’s essentially collecting goods from point A and delivering them to point B (or sometimes multiple points), on the same day. This is usually important documents, or parts for machinery, or last minute orders needed on a short time scale by a customer.
But why is same day important for my business?
The world is becoming evermore impatient when it comes to delivery of service, whether it’s a physical delivery of goods, or your favourite show on Netflix. Everyone wants everything now. No one likes waiting a week for the next episode of their favourite programme!
It’s exactly the same when it comes to ecommerce. With companies such as Amazon promising next day delivery on items ordered online the day before increases peoples desire to have everything ASAP, putting more pressure on small to medium sized businesses to deliver the same kind of service if they are to compete.
I read a statistic the other day which stated that 53% of customers have cancelled or abandoned their purchase because delivery was too slow (Marketing Profs, 2022). That’s a huge percentage of business lost for something as simple as delivery.
The same applies in business. A customer is more likely to buy a product from somewhere with a quick turnaround of delivery.
Same day is also utilised in industries such as construction, for things like machinery breakdowns. Minimal downtime on broken machinery is crucial to keep sites moving, so having a same day courier on hand to fetch parts and deliver to site with the utmost priority is invaluable.
Similarly, the medical industry relies heavily on same day couriers to move important medical supplies, test kits and samples on dedicated runs with minimal time.
Having a same day courier at your disposal who can collect within the hour and dedicate a van & driver solely for the carriage of your goods is a great solution, and will help provide a better service for your customers. It will keep you inside those important deadlines, and save you valuable resource if the only other alternative is to do it yourself.
These are just some examples of the niche service Piranha Parcels can offer.
Which courier does same day delivery?
There are a lot of companies offering same day delivery, as the demand for quick turnaround is ever-growing. Most delivery companies offer a same day side line.
Selecting the right company to match your brand values is crucial, as you’re putting your product literally in their hands. Building inter-company relationships can be tricky business. You need to ensure the company you engage are trustworthy, fully insured and deliver what they promise.
Here at Piranha Parcels we pride ourselves with being easy to do business with. Boasting a fully insured fleet, with live telematic vehicle tracking, driven by approved and checked drivers who share Piranha Parcels' vision of customer satisfaction and a genuine passion for Delivering Excellence.
How much does same day delivery cost?
It’s hard to say, as geography, distance and time has a lot of influence over price. However, it doesn’t cost as much as losing a customer over cheap and untrustworthy service.
