Potomac, MD (PRWEB) December 13, 2005
The Casual Courier (“TCC”) introduces a new way to send packages worldwide. By using everyday travelers as independent couriers, holiday gift-givers now have an alternative way to send their packages around the corner or around the world.
Anyone who has ever waited in long lines at the post office or been outraged by the prohibitively expensive rates for overnight delivery will be happy to hear about TCC’s new approach to sending items quickly to their destination.
The TCC delivery process begins when a user completes a simple, online shipping request form. A list of matching courier itineraries is immediately displayed. The sender may then anonymously invite a courier to deliver the package based on reliability rating scores and existing travel plans. When the courier accepts the invitation, the sender contacts the courier to arrange delivery.
The couriers’ delivery fee is determined entirely by the users.
“Our philosophy is ‘you’re going there anyway, why not take a package with you and make some extra cash,’” said Jack Jacobs, President and Founder of The Casual Courier, Inc. The delivery fee offered by the sender to the courier is usually about half the cost of traditional delivery. “This could be enough to buy yourself lunch when you get to your destination, or even significantly offset the cost of your trip,” Jacobs said.
With TCC, packages can now be sent for the price of post, at the speed of overnight and with the reliability of hand-delivery.
Half-price shipping costs with TCC will certainly make it easier to splurge on gifts for your loved-ones this holiday season.
