Founded in 2017 when two friends realized a need for a more professional emergency courier and messenger service in Barrie. We have found ways to improve upon the value of service. As Barrie continues to grow exponentially, the more residents and businesses need us. Not to mention, the many ties Toronto, GTA and Barrie have to each other reveals how much parcels, goods, parts and documents get exchanged between the two cities.
Car towing, Trailering, and Hauling in Barrie
While we are most busy as a same day courier in Barrie, we are also equipped to tow boats and boat transport up to 8000 lbs and 30 ft length from the dock to storage, or any moves needed. We do snowmobile, ATV and motorcycle delivery also.
Do you need open trailering of some large items? We have a 5×8 and 6×12 ft trailers that are ready for immediate delivery work.
We at Barrie Swift Courier know: Time is money
and the longer you’re without those important vehicle or machine parts, or the longer you have to wait to have those important documents signed, you’ve lost out on some days of income, whereas we can get it to you on same day delivery. It’s true that the international courier service companies can ship cheaply, it often takes between 3 days and a week to receive your important parcel though, especially over a weekend.
Calculate 4 total days waiting, by a hypothetical number such as $300/day (of lost production), and you have $1200 in lost revenue because your equipment was down or similar. Not to mention, you could miss out on a deal worth tens of thousands that needed documents exchanged in the same day. That could be worth far more than a paltry $1200. In comparison then, our same day delivery in Barrie and rush delivery prices are more than the international shippers, but the money you were able to earn by having your courier delivery sooner far exceeds our delivery charge.
Looking deeper, a rush, same day delivery to downtown Toronto from Barrie is approximately $165.00 by Barrie Swift Courier, and a 4 day shipment is around $15 from the other guys. You have a choice, $165 or $1215?
The above example is supposing that you are doing a courier delivery of a document or a box that an average person can carry. If the the delivery item is large and heavy, elsewhere will charge you $150 and take 4 days. Comparatively, we do large box and pallet same day deliveries, Barrie to Toronto, for $160.00
Estimating Trip Costs
With the ease of the internet, a practical courier company like us can use transparent and realistic tools to put a fair quote together for you. Anyone can use this trip calculator from Gas Buddy as well. Along with that metric, we factor in man hours and some depreciation on the delivery vehicle. It’s all simpler than it sounds, so don’t worry, you can have a quote from your favorite courier in Barrie either immediately or within a couple minutes.
Our Environmental Caring
Even with 7 billion people, every individual person impacts our earth- landfill waste you produce, clean water you use, greenhouse gas emissions you create, etc. We don’t know about other couriers in Barrie, but Barrie Swift Courier has policies in place to minimize our impact. It’s said, “leave your campsite better than you found it.”
- We minimize paper bills that come to the house by receiving them electronically
- The papers we do get are recycled
- Our kitchen recycles food, metal, styrofoam and plastics
- We discourage car idling
- We resist buying products that will end up in landfills. We buy quality, reusable and sustainable products any chance we get- from food to furniture.
- We group courier deliveries together when possible
- We prefer to work with companies who have the same environmentally conscious values
However small, every little environmentally-considerate action has an effect. A lot of change can happen from the items you buy alone, not just what you do with your waste. Buy recyclable items, buy less packaged items, buy energy efficient vehicles, buy water efficient items, minimize buying plastics, buy less disposable products, don’t buy poorly made products (particleboard furniture comes to mind), and don’t buy junk you don’t need !!
