In this digital age - no one likes to wait days for their parcels. Amazon Prime has contributed towards an impatient attitude felt towards shipping times and has helped drive a demand for quick same-day or next-day shipping.
Whether you need to send an urgent business document or a piece of furniture to a friend ASAP, Same Day delivery could be your option. It doesn't matter if you are an individual sender or an online business; Same Day shipping has many benefits!
In partnership with CitySprint, we offer discounted Same Day UK delivery services to suit your parcel sending needs. Still need some convincing? Continue reading!
What is Same Day shipping?
Same Day shipping (as the name suggests) is really just that! Your package will be collected from your home or work address and shipped to your delivery postcode the very same day. Same Day UK delivery is ideal for last-minute gifts or time-sensitive parcels.
What are the benefits of Same Day shipping for…
Sometimes, urgency is the motive that overrides all, and if you're in desperate need of an item for the very same day, you are willing to pay that little bit extra. The convenience of receiving goods almost immediately is becoming more popular than ever and significantly influences repeat purchases from an online store.
Same Day delivery at an affordable price? It can't be done you cry! Don't fear- it really can!
By booking your Same Day parcel delivery through us, you will have access to lower prices with CitySprint to secure a discounted Motorcycle, LWB, Small Van and Transit Van service from only £14.26 (plus VAT).
Quicker than other services
You're probably familiar with Next Day shipping, but Same Day shipping is an even speedier service and doesn't cost that much more. Whether you send documents, gifts, or products, you know that your package will be delivered to their door the same working day.
Useful for urgent Business-to-Business transfers
If your business needs to send a signed-for document or an urgent hand-in to another location, then Same Day delivery can help. We understand that time-sensitive parcels require a reliable and affordable service and CitySprint's collection-only delivery is a great solution.
As an online business, customer loyalty is essential for a successful business. Offering Same Day shipping is a great way to show that your company is reliable and trustworthy because a pop-up brand looking to make a quick profit wouldn't be offering a fast, premium shipping service, would they?
Attracts a broader customer pool
Speedy shipping is definitely more than a trend. Convenient shipping is becoming a necessity for eCommerce purchases. Same Day delivery is a great way to get your business noticed and appeal to a wide customer demographic.
It puts you ahead of the competition
With many small businesses starting up, it can be challenging to stand out from the crowd, especially if you are in the retail or manufacturing sector. Offering Same Day shipping can help differentiate you from other eCommerce brands as customers will love the option to receive their brand-new goods the very same day and recommend you to others.
