Understanding the Terms Used by Delivery Services

Delivery services or couriers can be a cost-effective way to ship parcels. With many options available, customers can shop for the best price and service they like best. To help you better understand delivery services, familiarize yourself with some essential key terms.

  • Residential Curbside Service - Homeowners who want to dispose of large items or electronics may choose a residential curbside service to pick up items from their home, so they can be disposed of properly.
  • Express Service - For faster delivery of parcels, customers can pay a nominal fee for the service. Express delivery may refer to anything from overnight to a few days, depending on where the parcel needs to go.
  • Air Freight Courier - Delivery shipments by aircraft, accommodating longer distances, like international shipping, in a fraction of the time.
  • Next-Day Delivery - One of the most expensive ways to ship parcels, this immediate courier service promises delivery the same or next day after the shipment is sent.
  • Pallet Delivery Service - This type of shipping is usually offered to commercial clients for larger packages. Prices are usually determined by weight, whether it is food, flowers or furniture.
  • Parcel Delivery Insurance - For an additional charge, customers can insure their packages up to a certain value. This is a good feature for shipping valuable items like jewelry.
  • Moving Services - Shipment of furniture and other home items for the purpose of relocating from one address to another. Companies that specialize in moving services usually ship large household items or a single piece of furniture, depending on the preference of the client.
  • White Glove Delivery Services - This type of courier service, whether same day or a longer time frame, ensures that even your most delicate parcels arrive at their destination intact and undamaged.

    Delivery services exist with one purpose-to ship goods to end users. These may include homeowners, stores and restaurants. Services vary according to company. Parcel services and couriers generally ship consumer goods to homes, ranging from electronic items to furniture. They may also provide the service of shipping excess baggage and other packages. In most cases, couriers also offer same or next day and overnight service. Food delivery services supply stores and restaurants. Those that deliver food to homes are generally called grocery services. Other services may also specialize in specific goods such as flowers or live animals. Parcel delivery services and couriers use various methods to ship goods. Express services requiring immediate delivery generally go by air. However, long distance trucks are also used as, in some cases, are ships and trains. Drivers are often expected to work through the night. Messenger services generally deliver small packages and letters in a very local area. These may use motorcycles, or even foot or public transport. Movers, on the other hand, transport all of an individual's or family's goods from one house to another. They may also move offices and stores. Some movers deliver only locally, others focus on long distance and even international. Parcel services may also work internationally. A reliable delivery service may require complicated logistics and fleets of trucks and planes. Some of the larger services are major employers which are spread across the country. Smaller ones could literally be 'two guys and a truck'. These mostly do moving, but may handle any work they can get. At both ends of the spectrum, delivery services work to ensure that parcels and items get where they need to go, sometimes within the same day.
