Cheap Parcel Delivery with Discount Courier Services

Have you ever tried to use a courier service? 

Courier companies offer cheap parcel delivery which may often beat the rates you get from the Post Office.

How does it work?

Anyone can take advantage of these cheap rates. You do not necessarily have to be internet-savvy in order to book a cheap parcel delivery service online.

Most discount courier services have easily accessible sites with straight forward instructions guiding through the booking process.

Simply enter your parcels measurements and weight into the quotation tool and start comparing the different carriers and their services.

Where do courier companies get their discounts from?

Well-known global carriers such as DHL, UPS, TNT or FedEx make their money through regular incoming orders but are often limited to providing discounts for business and private customers.

This is where discount courier services come in.

Independent couriers have got dedicated customer service and sales staff who can negotiate highly reduced rates for business and private customers. They will act as “middlemen” and buy postage slots from big carriers and then sell them to their customers.

This way, customers can benefit from cheap parcel delivery and carriers can grow their order volume.
