How Far Does First Delivery Service Go?

When you’re looking for a courier, it may be tempting to go with one of those large companies simply because you can be pretty certain that they will deliver anywhere. However, you don’t really know how they will treat your package. Will it arrive in a timely fashion? Will it get there in one piece? Do they know how to handle packages with special requirements or instructions? You just don’t know. One thing you can be sure of; you will pay top dollar to deliver your package with the most well known companies.

Another big problem with those large delivery services is the fact that you don’t always know how the package will get to its destination. Some of them use air or other delivery methods to take those packages across the country, and the end result isn’t always a good experience. All of these reasons are why you should use a courier service like First Delivery Service.

FDS will actually drive your package anywhere in the lower 48 United States. If you’re sending something that’s fragile or has very specific sending instructions, then you may not want to send it via air. The answer is a courier service like FDS that has no problems driving packages for very long distances.

Drivers with First Delivery Service have driven packages from Arizona to destinations as far away as Florida, Indiana, and Idaho. Cross-country ground service is offered out of their San Francisco Bay office in addition to their Arizona office. Their drivers will deliver your packages to anywhere in the lower 48 United States, so you can count on them.

How is a Courier Different than a Package Delivery Service?

When trying to choose between a courier like FDS and a package delivery service, you may also find yourself wondering what the difference is between them. A courier is, essentially, someone who delivers packages and documents. However, you get much more personalized services with a courier, which is why First Delivery Service is happy to deliver your packages all over the country via ground shipment rather than air.

You will also find that many regular delivery services just aren’t equipped well enough or experienced enough to handle some materials, like parts or supplies, legal documents, or medical specimens. FDS is open 365 days a year and has staff members at work on every holiday so that no matter when you need a package delivered. They can take care of it. In fact, they specialize in after-hours deliveries, so even if you need a delivery made at an odd hour of the day or night, they can handle it for you.

Just keep in mind that not every courier is able to handle every special delivery. FDS does not deliver food or other perishable items, expensive works of art, or animals. It always pays to call ahead and ask if you have a question about a particular item so that you will know for certain whether they are licensed to deliver the item you wish to send.

First Delivery Services operates in Phoenix, Tucson, and Flagstaff in Arizona. In California they operate in the San Francisco Bay area, Oakland, and San Jose. They basically have the entire lower 48 United States covered in terms of deliveries, and they pride themselves on being able to make deadlines each and every time. With more than 30 years of experience, they can actually say that their services have not be interrupted during that time.

So when you are trying to decide which courier company to go with, always be sure to consider FDS first. They will get your package delivered on time every time, no matter where it is in the U.S. mainland.
