Courier service is simply a pickup and delivery service. Couriers deliver messages, packages, documents, mail, etc.
Depending on the type of object(s) you want the courier to handle, you should trust your courier with sensitive information. Couriers are privy to pick up and drop off locations as well as the object(s) that you are asking them to handle. While couriers should not search for additional or sensitive information, it is important to trust your courier. While courier services like UberEATS, Postmates, and Instacart can be perfect for food or grocery deliveries, more sensitive deliveries and documents can be handled by individuals like process servers that offer this service.
Process servers handle and fill out legal documents daily, so they are familiar with sensitive legal information. They provide confidential services while serving papers and do not expose personal details. Since process servers do not openly discuss cases that they serve papers for, they are already more trustworthy to handle your courier service needs.
Why hire a courier?
Couriers provide convenience and peace of mind. If you are unable to pick up your belongings, couriers can ease the pressure and deliver the packages to you.
Furthermore, large shipping companies like FedEx won’t pick up your small packages and personally deliver them to you unless they are processed through their company. This can be expensive, especially when a private courier will more easily provide this same service.
How much does a courier cost?
The best way to price courier services is to contact a courier and discuss the object(s) and mileage. Since it can differ based on multiple factors, you may receive different quotes. If you plan on using a courier often, make sure to include that in your initial conversation and ask about bulk rates.
