  1. Do you ship hazmat items?

  1. Do you ship over holiday weekends?

Generally, we do not ship on holiday weekends, but there are certain exceptions. If the delivery is scheduled with us during regular office hours and both the pick-up and the delivery location will be open for shipping during the holiday, it is possible for us to set something up for you. Calling ahead is always helpful, but particularly in a case like this. 

  1. Why should I create an account with Econo-Courier?

There are multiple reasons to set up an account with us, one of which is convenience. If you find yourself shipping often, it only makes sense to make future deliveries easier. An account will speed up billing records and invoicing, as well as BOL and POD tracking. Another benefit is delivery notifications to offer you a sense of security and assurance.

  1. How do you determine costs?

The cost of your shipment depends on multiple factors. First there is the distance your products must travel and how soon you need them delivered. We specialize in timely deliveries and are happy to transport your items as quickly as possible. Once distance and timing are determined, you need to consider the type of vehicle needed. Shipping documents or a single item will require a different mode of transportation than say, a large shipment of construction materials. That brings us to our final determinations, which are weight and the number of pieces. So in short, we base costs on:

  • Timing
  • Distance
  • Type of Vehicle
  • Weight
  • Number of Pieces
