Couriers are an often forgotten about and underestimated industry. Most of the time, we are content to run our own messages and rely on the postal system for the rest, and so long as we have plenty of free time and no large or delicate items to ship, this is a perfectly fine way to be.

However, when we suddenly need to ship a bulky parcel, or one which must arrive on time to a certain location, it may become less feasible to simply use Royal Mail. The cost of shipping a delicate or heavy package may rise to the point that it becomes prohibitive, or the working hours of post offices may restrict us to frantically running there at lunch time, or bugging a friend to do it for us.

In these situations, a private courier company is the perfect solution. With high standards of security and assured delivery times, these companies are more able to handle unusual requests, like delivery within a set time frame, delivery of a very awkward or fragile item, like a heavy set of speakers or a crystal glass, and in many cases are even able to meet you at a location of your choosing to pick up the package before taking it to the delivery point.

Hiring a professional private courier company means having someone to turn to when you need a parcel delivered safely, securely and punctually. If you can’t make it to a post office with the package, or if it is heavy or complex enough that Royal Mail would make you take out a mortgage to pay off the shipping costs, then one of the companies below may well be your best bet to get that parcel where it needs to go.
