How To Ensure Parcel Delivery in 5 Steps

April 10, 2017

Traditionally, you refer to the Classifieds to look for a new job or a for a specific service provider for your home needs. Now, with the help of the Internet, there are listing sites that help you look for those. Today, you can access over 10,000 drivers around Singapore for your delivery needs. Read to see how delivery can now be a breeze.

#1 Know What Service and Vehicle You Need

For Document/Parcel(s)

Deliver Small Goods

If your items are smaller than the size of a shoebox, do select Delivery, then ‘Document’. We’ll send over a motorbike so we can have these delivered on time. All items will be delivered on the same day. Take note that all ‘Delivery’ service comes with complimentary door-to-door service.

For Large or Bulky Goods

Transport Large and Bulky Items

However, if your items are bulky, choose ‘Transport’. It will be good to know the longest length of your item(s). If it’s less than 2m, you may choose a van. For anything longer than 2.4m, we’d suggest getting a 10ft lorry to make sure that the item can fit, especially if you have multiple items.
