Many people end up becoming surprisingly confused about the difference between same day delivery and special delivery. There are a huge number of services options that you can choose from when it comes to parcel delivery, and here, we’re breaking down the differences between two of the most popular.
Same Day Delivery –
If you have a parcel or package that is time sensitive, then you may want to consider same day delivery. Same day delivery can provide you with the opportunity to transport urgent and important items to where they need to be, the very same day. While there is sometimes a cut-off, which is usually around 10pm depending on the courier, this is one of the quickest and most efficient collection and delivery services that you can use.
Special Delivery –
Special delivery is the ideal solution if you are looking to send a valuable or important item via your courier. While it is imperative that you have a form of insurance in the event that your parcel will be lost, damaged or stolen during transit, providing you with some form of compensation, special delivery can provide you with a much more secure courier option. In many cases, special delivery is guaranteed, with signed proof of delivery, compensation cover, consequential loss cover, and even weekend or Saturday delivery – depending on the courier.
There are a number of add-ons that you can include with same day delivery and special delivery, including options like on-demand same day delivery, scheduled same day delivery, multi-drop same day delivery, evening same day delivery, guaranteed special delivery, and many more.
