Whether you have a small parcel or an assortment of goods to send, you want to make sure you are choosing a reliable, cost-effective and trustworthy same day courier service to get the job done. With so many courier services offering a same day service, you might be wondering which the best option is.

This informative blog post will help you choose the right courier service for your needs by highlighting key elements every courier service should have.

Your needs

Before looking into same day courier services, you need to understand what your needs are. What is the size of your consignments? Do you require a pre-planned delivery? What date are you wanting the collection? Once you understand your needs, it is easier to find a courier service that aligns with your requirements.

Secure deliveries

Regardless of size, cost or the number of parcels you have to send, you want to make sure that your consignment is being delivered safely and securely. Reliable courier services will offer secure deliveries, which will provide you with extra peace of mind. At SRJ Sameday, we understand that we might be handling highly confidential or valuable deliveries, which is why all our reliable drivers carry company ID and have been CRB checked and then verified.

Speedy Service

A same day courier service implies a fast and reliable service; however, you need to make sure the courier service offers this service 24/7; otherwise, you might be faced with late deliveries. Our fleet is available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day as we understand that some consignments need to be delivered safely and fast.


Another aspect of a courier service you need to look into is their availability for collection. Make sure you are choosing a service that collects and then delivers any time of the day or night. Some courier services will add on charges for weekend collections, unlike our own express same day service which has no surcharges for weekend call outs.

Pricing structure

On the subject or surcharges, make sure you enquire about the cost of the same day courier service, before taking action. Reliable courier services will be upfront about the value of their services and will not surprise you with hidden fees.
