- Be more patient: You have to provide a flexible date for your collection and delivery. If the courier passes on your route at least twice or thrice a week, they can possibly give you a lower price on said days. If you are flexible with your dates, you make the pickup time a delivery bargain.

If you have several deliveries in one trip, the courier can save some costs and will pass these savings to you.

Sometimes, they can minimise the price on certain days to fit their route, or they can choose to bargain it with you. If the courier refuses to reduce the price, you need to check back other quotes that you have received. It’salso a way to determine you’re getting a fair price for the courier services.
The following are helpful tips to get the best savings for all your deliveries without affecting the service quality and how your customers will receive it.
