What type of same day courier do I need?
These days, same day delivery is a vital component of many industries. All industries around the world have been forced to adapt, and quickly, to the immediacy of a modern consumer lifestyle. Huge retailers like Amazon have long offered an upgraded delivery option – to receive your parcel the next day. This has also long been the case for major fashion and furniture retailers, with the option of upgrading your plan to receive next-day delivery or even same day delivery.
Of course, same day delivery is also an essential part of many other industries aside from retail. For instance, an urgent need for replacement equipment on an assembly line, or a spare part for an aeroplane ready for take-off, cannot wait longer than is absolutely necessary. So same-day couriers can operate over a multitude of industries – supplying urgent and same day logistics to any business which needs them. Wondering what type of same day courier you need? You’ve come to the right place – choose between the different types of courier available to you from Speedy Freight.
How does a same day courier service work?
A same day courier service is fairly self-explanatory – whatever time you book, we’ll aim to be with you the very same day. Speedy Freight always aims for one hour between you making your booking and our couriers turning up to collect your consignment.
Our dedicated delivery means we’ll never co-load your goods, which many commercial courier companies do. Many share their vehicles between more than one client’s goods, which can lead to damage to items and unnecessary costly delays as each client’s items are delivered on the same journey. Our service means your goods go straight from A to B – if it helps, think of us like a taxi service, rather than a bus!
Our same day couriers really mean ‘same day’ – which is why we’re the number 1 choice for a reliable UK courier. You also won’t lose track of the consignment, with our Same Day Status Tracking, and personal branch service, offering updates on the progress of your items. Best of all, our couriers operate the same day delivery service all day long, all year round – we know that you don’t necessarily operate within the hours of 9-5 from Monday to Friday, so nor do we.

Our two-man home delivery service is available when we need to deliver larger and heavier consumer packaged goods into the customer’s room of choice. Many of our retail clients use this service, which allows them to enhance the delivery experience they offer to their customers. This may be a more convenient delivery for their customers, for example; where their customer may otherwise find it difficult to move the item after it’s been left at the destination doorstep. This service includes a text sent to the end customer the day before delivery, with a delivery window time slot – to allow you or your client to prepare accordingly.

Your same day construction courier, Speedy Freight, understands the importance of efficiency.
Moving high-value goods is often a challenge for the client. Finding a reliable and trustworthy courier service which can move even the most valuable items safely and directly can be a complex task. At Speedy Freight, our drivers are well-versed in the movement of fragile and expensive goods – and with Status Tracking options, you can clearly track the consignment as it travels to its destination.
