When a Standard Delivery Just Won’t Cut It

Posted by Kayla Palesky on Thu, Jan 2, 2020 @ 16:01 PM


If we’re going to mince words, there is no “standard” delivery when it comes to Dallas Courier clients. While we do offer a generalized list of services here, nearly 40 years in the business has taught us that there is no one-size-fits-all option to deliveries in the Metroplex.


Some customers will be suited for our 4, 3, and 2 hour deliveries. These are economical and faster than most shipping options you’ll find with standard delivery providers. Your items still arrive within the day, and your delivery fees stay relatively low. However, this doesn’t meet the needs of all DFW customers. In that case, 1 hour and super rush deliveries are options. These cost a little more, but they can move in as little as 45 minutes. These are reserved for incredibly urgent and important items. This type of delivery can be expensive, but Dallas Courier ensures a fair price for a fabulous service.


As we said, those deliveries are available on our services menu, but there are times when a standard delivery just won’t cut it. Good news for our clients: off-the-menu services at Dallas Courier are expected and welcomed. Our delivery experts love coming up with unique solutions to meet the differing needs of our customers. And when those unique delivery needs need to occur immediately, they’re considered custom critical deliveries.


What is a Custom Critical Delivery?

A DFW custom delivery can be any number of things. Perhaps it’s considered critical because it’s an incredibly sensitive item. It might be custom because of the location for drop off or the distance it has to travel. It would also be considered a custom delivery it if requires special handling such as refrigerated or oversized items.


You know the saying “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”? The same goes for a custom delivery. If a client considers an item important or in need of special attention, then we can take it on as a DFW custom delivery. What’s important to you is important to us. And when you hire Dallas Courier for your next DFW custom delivery, you can rest assured knowing your items will move quickly, without stopping for consolidation and without being handed off to a third part. We see out your delivery from start to finish.


What are Some Examples of DFW Custom Deliveries?

Dallas Courier can deliver just about any item, but some of our most favorite custom deliveries include:


  • Long distance shipments that are time sensitive
  • Emergency deliveries of medical items
  • Live animal transportation
  • Recovery supplies for natural disaster victims
  • Personal items such as wedding rings and luggage
  • Legal papers for court
  • Oversized or heavy items that require movement within a business or apartment building


When Can I Schedule A Custom Delivery?

Our clients’ special items have their own timeline. That’s the thing about urgent deliveries; they don’t exactly operate on a 9-5, Monday through Friday schedule, do they? Thankfully, when you call Dallas Courier, you’re treated to a live customer service specialist, any time of day or night. Whether it’s 8PM or 2 AM, your DFW custom delivery can move when you need it to.


If you do happen to know you’ll be in need of a custom delivery at some point in the future, you can always schedule it in advance. We’ll get the specifics noted, and when the time comes, your special delivery will be in qualified hands.



Could your business benefit from a DFW custom delivery? Are you often in need of a little more TLC with your transportation services? Dallas Courier is here for you. From oversized to time sensitive, long distance to incredibly fragile, our team has the tools and training to meet your customized needs.
