For quite a while now, I’ve been waiting in eager anticipation for a certain package to arrive here at Martin Print H.Q.
This particular package has nothing to do with business – but I’ve been reliably assured that it was despatched via a very trustworthy business courier.
It’s actually a birthday present from my Great Uncle Tom. He reckons that it’s going to be the most original and exciting and genuinely useful birthday surprise that I’ll ever receive in my life.
“I know there’s been a slight delay in the arrival,” he’ll cackle down the telephone whenever he calls me at work.
“But I’ve been in touch with the courier, and they’ve assured me that your birthday present is on its way, and should be with you very soon.
“Believe me young Martin, it will definitely be worth the wait, I promise you that! Ha! Ha! Ha!”
Well, I certainly hope so. It’s been over seven years now.
I’m not quite sure what’s taking them so long. Our office door isn’t that hard to find.
Here at Martin Print, we’ve been fortunate enough to find the perfect mix of professional couriers to handle the distribution of our custom-crafted marketing goodies.
But I’m not here to tell you about those couriers.
After all, they may not necessarily turn out to be the ideal match for your business.
I’m much more interested in learning about the specific questions that every Australian Small Business should be asking potential courier service providers before settling on a final winning decision.
