Belvedere, Kent (PRWEB UK) 15 May 2012
When it comes to getting an online quote for shipping a parcel to Europe or the rest of the World, online websites often make claims to offer an online quotation service, but when looked at in further detail, the courier's idea of providing an online quote is for customers to email the company, where the order details can then be followed up. This is hardly an online quotation service.
More often than not, customers require a shipping quote instantaneously, rather than in a hour or so time, or whenever the courier is next able to respond.
Well Worldwide Parcel Services - http://www.worldwide-parcelservices.co.uk - are pleased to announce an instant online quotation service in real time, with no waiting around for someone to call back. Just the size and weight details of the parcel, along with the destination address, is all that's required to get an instant quote. As the name suggests, this service is offered for shipping to all Worldwide destinations.
The online service is called “Quick quote” and has been designed to provide a shipping quote as fast as possible. Speed is of huge importance especially when considering the pressures that shipping departments can come under, where a requirement to ship a customer's parcel can come out of nowhere and need shipping like it was yesterday.
However the system has not only been designed to provide the quickest method of parcel delivery, but also to make the entire booking process just as fast. After all, there is no point in getting an instant shipping quote if it then takes a further ten minutes to go about booking a collection.
Time is often regarded as money, and so the online quote service is designed to make things as simple as possible. A booking only takes a couple of minutes, so a customer can place an order and get back to the day job as soon as possible.
Worldwide Parcel Services don’t just provide a quick quote, however. The courier also provides customers with a wide variety of options including estimated shipping times against them. The service also shows which carrier will be used to ship each parcel. This may be looked at as being a little odd, but as courier services are bought in bulk and therefore discounts are provided, Worldwide Parcel Services can know as a result which service will provide the best rates which even the courier themselves will not be able to achieve.
All prices include a free £50 worth of insurance, and further insurance up to £1,000 can be added with just one click of the mouse. This means customers can specify the amount of cover they require for the package, and don't pay above the odds for cover they don't need.
Furthermore, once the order is placed, it can be tracked easily online using the website's parcel tracking system. Each order is provided with a tracking number, which provides the location and history of each parcel in a matter of seconds.
It is for all of the above reasons that Worldwide Parcels offer online parcel service which is a step above the competition, so why not find out more today?
