5 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Get Delivered Same Day

For some businesses, sending and receiving same day delivered goods is vital; without this important service they simply wouldn’t be able to function. And it’s not just businesses either; urgent deliveries are made to households up and down the country.

Almost anything can be same day delivered, but when you stop to think about it, you’ll probably come up with the usual items such as office supplies (paper, ink toner, and the like), or perishable goods. We’ve put together some of the more unusual same day delivered items you probably haven’t considered; read on and you’ll see just how important and flexible a service this really is.

Your Laundry

We’re all busy people, and finding the time to do our own work and still manage to have some down time – the fabled work life balance – is difficult enough. Add to that all the chores that need to be done such as housework and DIY and something has to give.

The more you can outsource the better, and your laundry is one of those things, but that can mean taking time out of your day to drop off and pick up. Unless, of course, you get it same day delivered. Some companies will even organise a courier to collect the clothing too. You’ll save a lot of time and you’ll always have clean, pressed clothing to wear.

Medical Supplies

Being unwell is something we all have to cope with from time to time, and if it’s something simple like a cold then a trip to the pharmacy isn’t going to be a problem. But when you have a chronic disease, or when you are suffering with something more serious, having the strength and energy to go out and pick up prescriptions or even buy flu medicine is going to be difficult.

Thankfully, you can get medical supplies same day delivered. This might involve a standard delivery vehicle, but you could utilise a chilled vehicle as well. In fact, hospitals do this regularly to ensure the medical supplies they are buying are kept at the optimum temperature to keep them working as efficiently as possible.

Takeaways are great, and after a busy, long day at work they can be a great to unwind, but some takeaways don’t deliver. It’s just not cost effective for them to do so. That means either swinging past on your way home, or getting home, realising that a takeaway is what you need, and having to go out again. Neither option is great when all you actually want to do is relax.

Why not book a courier to collect your food for you? It may seem extravagant, but when you are already paying out for food that someone else has cooked, a little extra to have it delivered isn’t going to be too much of a struggle.


Plants don’t do well when it comes to travelling. They can wither and die very quickly without sunlight and water, and keeping a plant alive in the back of a truck during a long journey is difficult and not what the courier should be concentrating on (although, of course, it’s not out of the question – Absolutely does like to go above and beyond).

If you have ordered plants to be delivered then a same day delivered option might be the best for you. It means the plants are affected as little as possible by the movement and lack of nutrients, and you can quickly put them in the right place and keep them healthy once they arrive.

Baby Bits

Babies need a lot of things from nappies to formula to bibs to creams for sore bottoms. And sometimes these things can run out, but a sleeping baby (or a screaming one) and a trip to the supermarket is just not a match made in heaven, and most parents are stuck in a quandary at this point.

Don’t worry. Go online and search for baby bits you need and have them same day delivered. You don’t have to leave the house and the baby will be happy and comfortable in no time. It’s ideal for keeping your life a little less stressful at a crazy, emotional time.
