Expedited Trucking and Courier Vehicles Rely on Excellent Maintenance

38605692_mWhen it comes to meeting our customers’ demands and needs we need to get on the road and sometimes that means driving in harsh conditions. We rely on our vehicles to keep our drivers safe and to get the job done. This requires that we keep all vehicles in tip-top shape with excellent maintenance routines at all times.

Summer and Winter are radically different in temperature and travel conditions, and each season requires different maintenance routines for our trucks and vehicles. As we prepared for this winter, we thought we would share with you some ideas to keep you safe on the road this winter no matter what may come.

While we are only too happy to offer some tips, we strongly recommend that before servicing your car yourself that you first check your owner’s manual as not all vehicles are the same. And we also recommend that you schedule an appointment at your dealership where they are familiar with your make and model to winterize your vehicles. Our maintenance suggestions are general recommendations and may not be right for your particular vehicle. Continue reading Expedited Trucking and Courier Vehicles Rely on Excellent Maintenance

No Certificate of Insurance = No Delivery!

certificate-of-insurance-delivery-nycNothing can mess up your schedule and your budget like having the delivery driver show up and be forced to sit and wait outside while a certificate is obtained, or turned away all together and left to return on another day.

Did you know that many of New York’s commercial and residential buildings require that a Certificate of Insurance (COI) be on file with the building or property manager before a delivery can be made? That’s a fact of business life in the delivery business in New York City and surrounding area.

A building or property manager wants verification that there is coverage for any damage caused during a delivery. Typically, it’s only necessary for properties that share common areas like a lobby or elevator.

If you are planning to have goods or equipment picked up or delivered, check with the building management at both locations to find out if they require a COI. If so, be sure to notify your delivery company so they can have one prepared and presented to building management ahead of the scheduled date.

We have picked up and delivered to so many buildings in the New York City area that chances are that we probably already have a COI on file. In the instance where we may not have a COI, we have a quick remedy working with one of the industry’s best insurance companies that specializes in working with companies like ours, so we can typically turn around a COI on the same day or by the next business day.

What is a Certificate of Insurance?

A Certificate of Insurance is Purely Informational and is not intended to confer any rights on either the policyholder or the certificate holder. A Certificate of Insurance should list the pertinent coverage terms as they appear in the actual policy.

The New York State Insurance Department has expressly advised insurers that: Continue reading No Certificate of Insurance = No Delivery!

Springtime Packaging Materials

tissueAs you’re sending out your packages this season, considered adding some springtime materials to the mix. After the winter that we had, any touch of color will make a person smile. Wondering where to begin? Below are some of our ideas.

1. Pastel Tissue Paper – Pastels define Spring. You can stuff your bags and boxes with tissue paper for package protection and effect. Want to make your package even brighter? Combine colors.

2. Floral Wrapping Paper – Using wrapping paper is a perfect package addition, especially when you’re dealing with same-day shipping.

3. Green Crinkle Cut Shred – Why green you ask? We chose green to symbolize grass. Fill your packages with this green shred, to replace bubble wrap and add a fresh spring look.

So when you use our courier services to send mom a package this weekend, be sure to add some color.

It’s January 1st! Happy New Year’s from all of us here at Eveready Express, your local trucking company. 2014 is here and we’re hoping it’ll be the best year yet, filled with love, laughter, fun, and economic success.

The new year is a time for resolutions and commitments to improving things over the 12 months to come. For some, resolutions are health-related, like decisions to quit smoking, cut back on sugar, or spend more time at the gym. Others make fiscal commitments and decide to cut back on unnecessary spending or to save more for the future. Businesses may resolve to offer improved customer service or added incentives like same day shipping to better service their customers.

At Eveready Express, we’re making resolutions, too! 2014 marks our 30th year in the package delivery industry and we’re committed to doing whatever it takes to make this year amazing. Our New Year’s resolution is to continue our tradition of providing our customers with top notch service and speedy and safe package delivery at the lowest possible prices. For 2014, we’re determined to keep providing our customers with a wide range of affordable delivery services so that whether you need same day courier service or nationwide trucking, we’re ready and able to service you in the upcoming year.

Wishing all of our clients a happy, healthy New Year! May 2014 bring you happiness, joy, laughter, and monetary success!

Post-Holiday Delivery Services

The holidays are over, but that doesn’t mean the time for holiday delivery services has passed. December 26th marks the beginning of a time that is as much a tradition as the madhouse shopping experiences that lead up to Christmas — a time for returns and exchanges, a time almost as crazy busy as the pre-holiday shopping season.

If you were one of the lucky few who received something that you’ll actually use and enjoy, you can partake in this part of the holiday tradition by avoiding retail stores for a little while, particularly those shops that combine return and checkout services in a single line. If you want to return your gift and the receipt (hopefully you got one) gives you a fairly large window of time for returns, take advantage of it. Avoid attempting the return or exchange immediately after the holiday is over, as closer to the holiday usually means a longer line.

In today’s era of modern technology, you have another option. Many stores allow package delivery service for returns, especially for items ordered online. Place the item back in its box and call Eveready Express. Our delivery service team will be happy to pick up the unwanted gift and send it to where it needs to go. We even offer same day shipping so that you can get returns sent in time for the tightest of deadlines.

End of Year Logistics Services

If you’re a retail store owner, you probably place a big priority on logistics services for the fourth quarter. At this point in the year, most of your existing inventory is off the shelves and in the hands of customers so that there’s room for any new products you have coming in for 2014.

Stuff flies off the shelf on Black Friday and with Cyber Monday becoming the norm as well, there’s twice as many crazy good sales for shoppers to take advantage of. Anything that’s left over afterwards is likely to be snatched up during pre-Christmas shopping — after all, everything is the perfect gift for someone. If you still have things left on the shelves, options like free package delivery are a great way to encourage shoppers to buy, buy, buy. With service from Eveready Express, you can offer your customers an abundance of shipping options, including same day delivery and courier messenger services.

The arrival of Christmas and New Year’s means it’s time to move forward, with a slew of new products ready to be delivered to happy customers. Get rid of any old inventory you have on your shelves with the help of Eveready Express — our professional and experienced staff is poised and ready to deliver your products to anywhere they need to go.

At Eveready Express, we’re excited to spend the holidays with our family and friends.

Same Day Delivery for Personal Christmas Gifts

courier services for Christmas giftsWith Christmas less than a week away, same day delivery is essential if you want the Christmas presents you’re sending to get to their destination in time to be placed under the tree. Many big box retailers structure entire advertising campaigns around this concept, spotlighting the last day to order and encouraging shoppers to get their orders in before the deadlines. For some retailers, this deadline may have already passed and items purchased now will have a scheduled arrival date later than December 25th.

If you haven’t yet found the perfect gift, have no fear! With same day shipping from Eveready Express, there’s still time to find the ideal gift and send it out in time for the holiday. You can shop at any of your favorite retailers or create a personalized, handmade gift and we’ll deliver the package to the recipient as soon as it’s ready to be sent. We even offer courier and messenger services for delicate or fragile items so that you can ensure a speedy and safe package delivery. Whether you’re sending to friends, family, or business associates, Eveready Express offers same day shipping to help you get your presents to where they need to go before Santa comes down the chimney.

Messenger Services for Business Christmas Gifts

Hand delivered packages are an excellent way to show clients how much you appreciate them and the winter holiday season is the perfect time to send such gifts. Holiday presents let your clients know that you value them and their business and are a common tool used to ensure customer satisfaction and retention.

Some of the most popular options for client gifts are food-related like fruit platters, bottles of wine, boxes of chocolate, or top-notch coffee. Oftentimes, the foods are combined and arranged in gift baskets that may center around a specific theme related to the holidays or the company. In addition to yummy edibles, baskets can also feature useful items such as beauty or spa products. Items related to business are an excellent client gift as well and many companies choose to send technological accessories like iPad cases.

For best results, tailor each gift to its recipient and send something that is perfectly in line with your client’s interests. Though it may take longer to find and order the gifts, they’ll make a much bigger impact than a generic gift card. Another way to make your gift stand out is to have it hand delivered via courier or messenger service. The personal package delivery lets your clients know the value you place on their business and it’s also a great way to ensure that even the most fragile and delicate basket or gift will reach your client in perfect condition.

Christmas Package Delivery

Package delivery is a must for Christmas gifts that can’t be delivered personally. Whether it’s for family or friends that live far away or business associates you won’t be seeing over the holidays, gifts can be sent to their recipients in a number of ways besides Santa’s sleigh.

Next day and same day delivery options let you push off shopping until the very last minute so that you can join the hordes of other people desperate for gifts and watch as what used to be your local shopping center turns into a madhouse. If you preferred to partake in the shopping craze on Black Friday and purchased your presents far in advance, there are a bunch of other options available to you in addition to same day and next day shipping. For example, you can utilize services like local trucking and your gift will still reach its recipient in time for the holiday.

Gifts can also be hand delivered by Eveready Express’s experienced and professional couriers. Courier messenger service takes things above and beyond basic shipping to add an air of class to any delivery. Plus, for delicate or handmade gifts that may spoiled or get ruined, such as floral or fruit arrangements, glass or crystal, or even an exquisitely wrapped box, messenger service is a great way to ensure that the present reaches its destination in perfect condition.
