Perks of Patronizing Courier Services
Courier services have definitely been very popular for the people now a days. With the current pandemic where people are limited to go out of their each and own houses, the demand for delivery or courier services have significantly grown for a lot larger. Because of the service that these people have been offering us, the number of people that have to be controlled outside their own households have been much lessened. People have been using courier services in order to deliver parcels from one place to another. They could also deliver food from these delivery services. Other delivery services even offer grocery items in their deliveries that is why these types of services are truly a blessing in order to reduce the risk of the corona virus.
Here in the Philippines, some of the courier services that are currently available are as follows: Angkas, Joyride, Lalamove, mrspeedy, grab, and I guess there are a lot more companies or maybe individuals that offer this kind of service to the people. These types of services charge their customers a significant amount of service fee in exchange for the service they have provided. Not only that, but they also charge a different rate, but there is not that much of a difference, for the products that the customers will be ordering. I guess the income of the riders in this type of business is just minimum when we will think of it, isn’t it? The one that the customer pays are not actually the products they have ordered. But what is payed in this line of business is the effort and the dedication of the riders.
Courier services is surely a great help for a lot of people especially if they have a lot of things or errands to attend to. Of course, not each and every one of us have the chance to go to malls or even go to restaurants or fast food chains in order to buy the things that we need. Maybe some of you has no choice but to skip meals because you have a lot of things to do. As a wise human being, it is just right to utilize what we have. Let us use our cellular phones on more important things. You could easily download delivery services such as the ones mentioned a while ago. These applications are surely easy to use and very user friendly. Although delivery services among fast food chains and restaurants have been present for quite some time. These courier services actually have a lot more to offer. And it is our duty and responsibility to become reasonable when patronizing these types of services. We must not abuse their service and keep in mind that they are also human beings.
In this thread, I would like to enlighten you about the perks of patronizing or availing delivery services. If you have doubts or maybe you are searching if delivery services are good, well here is the signal that you are looking for. Here are some of the good effects or advantages of having to patronize delivery or courier services especially in today’s era.
Stay Away from Traffic

Because vehicles have become much more affordable for the consumers, it is just normal that the demand would rise. It is evident that the number of vehicles that are travelling each and every day have exceeded the desired number. And because of this, traffic has surely become each and every motorist’s experience in their everyday travel. One chooses to consider patronizing courier services here in the Philippines because of the nonstop problem in terms of traffic. Imagine maybe going to your destination not so far away, maybe 3 kilometers, and you would spend an hour because of traffic congestion. Of course, you still need to go back to your homes which will be another experience for the gruesome traffic once again. That is totally a waste of time right there. The usual travel time is not continuous since most of the time the vehicles are just idling since there is congestion. You cannot do anything when you are stuck in traffic especially if you are the driver. Using cellular phones is strictly prohibited. You have got no choice but to just sit and wait. The traffic problem would just surely stress yourself out. You just made yourself upset over the problem of traffic, and at the same time, you could have done something more productive with the time you have wasted. This is just one of the challenges that a rider of a particular courier service has to endure. He or she has to experience the stressful traffic just to satisfy the needs of the consumer. Good thing is that most delivery or courier services make use of motorcycles in order to deliver goods. Because of the utilization of motorcycles, the riders could easily avoid traffic. Since motorcycles are significantly smaller in size compared to most four-wheel vehicles, these vehicles can easily fit between much smaller spaces and can easily change directions. The problem that we are currently facing in traffic is surely a waste of time. For now, we cannot do something about it since we do not have the authority and power. That is why we should think of different alternatives in order for us to avoid facing this problem.
You Could do More Things

Buying different products or necessities such as food, groceries, bath supplies, and other household needs is surely a hassle. It is a particular errand that we wish we could just request other to do it for us. Just think about the effort and time that you will consume just to go to the mall or a specific store. It surely is an additional obligation for our part. What about if you do not have your own mode of transportation? Then you would have to book for a ride or take the public transportation just to buy your necessities, right? Not to mention, you would have to do that back and forth. After going to the mall or a specific store, then you would have to fall in line. Let us say that it is a Sunday and most people are in the malls. Surely, there would be a long line waiting ahead of you. Waste of time, isn’t it? After getting to buy from a specific store, you would surely need to go to other ones since a single store would not cater all your needs, right? It would surely take a lot of effort and time for you to buy your necessities. Just think of the time that you could have used on something else. Maybe buying your different necessities would take you a minimum of 3 hours including the travel time. Well, what if the store is far from your house. Then that specific 3 hours that you would spend would actually be longer. What if you just spent those time that you had spend shopping for resting. Or maybe for other stuffs that actually reduces your stress. Well, if you choose to avail such delivery or courier services, you will just have to wait for your order to arrive at the front of your doorsteps. Convenient and efficient at the same time, isn’t it? You could actually use the time for waiting for your order to arrive on anything that you desire. You could just simply rest or maybe play some games. It would definitely save your time and most importantly, energy, if you would choose to use delivery or courier services.

Going to malls in order to buy your necessities is normal for people. Since most of the things or the products that you are looking for could be usually found in malls. Groceries, clothing brands, fast food chains, electronic stores, and many other shops that cater to the needs of the customer are often located in most malls. Going to malls is a reasonable way in order to buy your needs since it is significantly easy to go to malls since most public transportations are headed towards it. Also, most of the malls now a days usually have transport terminals. These transport terminals have public transportations that you could easily access when going back to your homes. But it is without a doubt that going to malls is a big risk for your wallet. Since malls have many different services to offer. Many of which are not necessities and would just satisfy your wants and not your needs. When we are inside the malls, it is definitely easy to be tempted in buying things that you actually do not necessarily need. Let us say that you just need to buy shampoo or some other stuff. And then you go to the mall to buy that specific product. But going inside the mall, you see a promo on your favorite game. It is actually 50% off. Who would not be tempted by that offer, right? Instead of buying just a single product maybe worth a hundred pesos. You would end up buying that specific game that costs maybe a thousand. A huge hit for your wallet, isn’t it? Also, you would be tempted to buy in fast food chains. And buying food in fast food chains are significantly more expensive than eating at home. If you would just cook food at home, then you would save a significant amount of money. Well, most delivery or courier services charge a specific fee for other products. But this actually is not just a waste of money for the part of the consumers. The money that the delivery or courier services are charging you are just the money that you would spend to go to the store or to the mall. Simple as that, isn’t it?
Choosing to patronize such delivery or courier services still depend on the consumers. Well, if you are specific with your products, then you would have to just personally purchase them yourself. Because these specific services could not actually decide for their customers since they are just satisfying their needs. Also, the availability of the products is not ensured with delivery or courier services. What if the specific flavor of a product that you are actually ordering from them is not available. Would they possibly know right away which one is the alternative for you? I guess that is one of the reasons why other people choose to just personally buy their stuffs. They just want to be specific and wants to be sure that all of their needs are satisfied. Because there are also things that a person just thinks of buying when they just remember it. Since in delivery or courier services, once you are done with choosing your order then it would be processed right away. Well, what if you forgot something that you actually need? With you personally buying your necessities, you could actually buy everything that you need and since you have the time to think of the things that you might need.
The technology has made a lot of things possible. It has definitely made a lot of things significantly easier and more efficient. And we have to utilize it to its fullest potential. That is why it is invented. It has its specific purpose in which we will truly benefit. We, as people living in the 20th century are really lucky enough because we have the luxury to experience these types of things. Without technology, I guess all of the things that we are experiencing today would not be around. And that is why we should be thankful and grateful at the same time to be able to live in this era.
Although delivery or courier services are readily available due to the wide accessibility to many people. We, as consumers should be responsible enough to avail these services. We should not trick or make harmful pranks towards the riders. Because what tends to happen nowadays is that other people who have nothing to do with their lives, order food but does not actually show up. Then, the riders would just waste their money and would have to pay for the products ordered by those people.
