FAQs

Why do couriers use motorbikes?

Motorbike courier services are perfect for longer distance work for smaller items. We tend to find that customers utilise this service if a pushbike or cargobike courier service is unable to reach a postcode that sits outside zone 1 and zone 2.

Why a sameday service?

Our sameday courier service is designed for urgent or time sensitive deliveries that are required to be collected and delivered on the same day. We offer a ‘standard sameday’ service for deliveries throughout the day and a ‘special sameday’ service which is deadline specific for those items that you need to get across town yesterday.

What is the weight limit for a motorbike courier?

Our motorbike courier fleet can carry up to 8kg and are ideal for items no larger than an A4 box or A3 flat item. For more information visit our Vehicle Guide.

What happens if there's no-one there to receive my delivery?

This is rare on a sameday service. However, experience tells us that it does happen from time to time. If no one answers at the delivery address we’ll try calling them and/or you (the person who booked with us). If you don’t tell us otherwise, we’ll leave a ‘sorry we missed you card,’ so that the recipient can contact us to rearrange delivery at a more convenient time.

Is a motorbike courier service time efficient?

Yes. A motorbike is ideal for those longer distance journeys for smaller items.

Is a motorbike courier service secure?

Absolutely! Our motorbike couriers use secure top boxes to ensure the security and integrity of all items that they carry.
