Questions to ask when getting a quote for delivery services

When companies need to find  a delivery or courier company, either for a one time delivery or an ongoing partnership, the first question and often the deciding factor is cost or delivery rates.

Since rate or cost is such an important factor in deciding whether to use a delivery or courier company, it is critically important to get all charges included or explained in the quote.

For instance, fuel surcharges.  Many companies, especially transportation companies, institute fuel surcharges to account for the fluctuating price of fuel.

Typically, a delivery company will base their rates on a certain set price of fuel, (say $2.50 per gallon of unleaded in your area).  As fuel goes above the base price, they will calculate a fuel surcharge on all delivery rates.  You will find a wide range of calculation methods and fuel surcharge rates, from none at all up to 20%, it just depends on their policies and whether their basic rates cover all fuel surcharges or not.

There are many other ancillary charges delivery companies charge, but fuel surcharge is usually the most expensive of these type of charges and if not explained and then considered carefully, can cause you to make bad choices and spend more money than you planned for you delivery service requirements.

This applies to courier companies, express freight companies, delivery companies and same day messenger services to name a few.

HB Express is a California based transportation company that works with couriers and delivery companies throughout California and western Nevada to insure our customers get the best rates and most reliable service and a convenient one stop option for getting quotes on any type of delivery, courier, express freight or messenger services.

 

How to get an honest quote for delivery services California

Often, when I speak to people who are seeking to get a quote for delivery services, they are pleasantly surprised that they have reached someone who is experienced, knowledgeable and has the time to get an accurate and detailed description of the needs.

There are thousands of small delivery companies, some with only very specific and limited capabilities, due to the fact that they only have one or maybe two customers.  Even delivery companies that have a website can have little more in the way of assets, experience or financial backing that would make you feel comfortable putting your delivery needs in the care.

I started HB Express five years ago and now work with five of the most experienced and reliable delivery companies in California.  I work closely with the owner of each company and insure that every quote we provide an accurate and honest assessment of your needs and the rates for which you can count on paying.
