At Connection Same Day Courier we get asked to collect and deliver a wide variety of package types. These range from small envelopes and passports to bulky items and hazardous materials. Whatever type of package you have a Connection Courier can collect and deliver it on the same day. Once our courier has collected your package, he takes it straight to the delivery destination. If the delivery address is ten miles away we will deliver your parcel in the length of time it takes to drive 10 miles! No one can deliver faster than a same day courier.
Any time anywhere we can get it there
Our customers rely on us to collect and deliver many different items. For example, this morning, we carried a pallet sized load of medical equipment to an address in London. Meanwhile, in Newcastle, our couriers were collecting and delivering packages for pathology and dental labs, papers for a visa to Edinburgh, and paying into the bank for a factory. This afternoon we delivered a passport to Liverpool, a phone battery to Carlisle and some papers to the local tax office while our traffic consultant was monitoring half a dozen multi drops between hospitals and factories.
Tomorrow (so far), we have been asked to collect and deliver a model train, and to collect and deliver exhibition equipment to a hotel in Manchester As you can see same day couriers can carry a wide range of packages. We asked our traffic consultant Alistair about some of the most unusual things Connection Same Day have been asked to deliver.
"One or two unusual loads do come to mind. We carried a valve up to the Uigg Ferry in Scotland which was waiting to depart for the Outer Hebrides. I remember we delivered some specialist sealant for the Kylesque Bridge when it was under construction, all work had stopped and couldn't continue until our courier arrived. Talking of unusual, we collected ragworms from a worm farm on the North East coast and delivered them to fishing tackle shops around Northumberland, and we carried helicopter engines! Every now and again,we do get an unusual enquiry "

We are often asked to carry packages that are fragile and need careful handling. A same day courier is an ideal choice for this type of delivery because the service is so direct. Packages delivered in this way are not subject to a central hub or warehouse handling since we provide a personal and uninterrupted service. Connection Same Day Courier also carries items that are too big, too heavy or too bulky for standard delivery options. Given that our service is individually focused, we can monitor and asses every collection and delivery on its particular requirements. We give every customer our undivided attention so we can deliver for you on the same day.

"Connection Courier Save the Day. The All-in-One Company® would like to thank Connection Express for their impeccable service. At 2 pm we received a request for our Royal Baby Onesie to be delivered to the Daybreak studios in London by 6 am the following day. We called Connection thinking we had missed any form of delivery, but to our luck, Connection Express were able to help. Not only did they deliver the onesie the same day, they also kept us informed of the progress and notified us upon delivery. Daybreak then featured our onesie on their morning show.
