Philadelphia Courier Summary of Services

What Exactly is a Courier Service?

Our Philadelphia courier service is an economical, convenient and practical option for your company, but perhaps most significantly, our courier service gives you peace of mind in knowing that your important business matters are being taken care of personally by our professionals. We build our business by proving we live up to our reputation. We are committed to providing customer service that exceeds your expectations. As a courier service we are a well organized company that uses the latest technological advances to provide shipping and delivery solutions to you and your business as well as your clients and customers. We even offer services that range from local to international.

There are about as many uses for couriers as there are delivery trucks on the road. Couriers can deliver contracts, bank deposits, pay bills for you, ship freight, pick up signed documents the list goes on and on. The beauty of a courier service is that we offer individualized attention to your business needs. We train our couriers in the latest technology, and they have the experience to know the best routes for pick-ups and deliveries. They drive the Philadelphia streets every day, and they have the knowledge about which blocks and streets to avoid, the likely places for traffic jams, and the shortest routes to use for quick delivery.

Quality communication between our couriers and your business is essential. Couriers keep in touch when unexpected issues arise - such as problematic Philadelphia weather or traffic snarls that cause delay. They let you know the moment your package is delivered and often offer signature services to allow you to know that your delivery arrived directly into the hands of the person intended.

Our Philadelphia couriers drive everything from cars to 26' straight trucks, meaning we can make deliveries of any size or shape. We have many varying sizes of delivery vehicles to match your needs. We can deliver a contract across town or a piano to your apartment. We are well prepared to handle your delivery, whatever it may be.

We differ from traditional methods of shipping such as those found at UPS, the United States Postal Service or FedEx in that we offer a wider range of services. We offer speed, security, tracking, specialization in services, committed delivery times, and individualization to your specific needs. We provide delivery outside of traditional delivery schedules, working 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. We offer flexibility in delivery destination, delivery attempts, and we can provide delivery time within a specific window.

We take the time to hear you and we only commit to what we can follow through on. All of these uses for our courier services, and more, allow you to focus on running your business without worrying about the details we've got those covered for you.

I want to acknowledge the level of service that Philadelphia Courier Sir Lancellot has provided since I took responsibility for the branch and interoffice courier services at FirstTrust in 2004.

Philadelphia Courier Sir Lancellot consistently adheres to our schedules and can be relied upon to provide dependable, courteous service. From time to time, we have a need for unscheduled courier services. These usually require same day delivery without a lot of advance notice. Sir Lancellot has always been responsive to those needs.
