General Questions

What exactly is a courier?

A courier transports materials from one place to another. The “materials” may be mail, parcels, bank deposits, medical equipment, even people.

A courier makes money by providing service and also by creating efficiency. By handling deliveries for many clients simultaneously, a courier can spread the time and expense of transportation across many people, and make a profit while saving the businesses money.

The more service a courier business provides and the more efficiency it creates, the greater its potential income.

What is a business start-up kit?

The “Zero to Sixty” kits provides virtually everything you’ll need to get off to a strong start in your first 60 days.

We show you where to find business for your courier service, how to keep that business once you’ve established it, and explain the day-to-day necessities of running your courier service.

Additionally, we provide you with sample documents such as invoices, delivery logs, and client contracts to boost your professionalism from the start.

We have also created checklists that will help you stay on track as you get your business up and running.

Are there more DVDs that I can buy?

Currently, CourierPros offers two programs, “Zero To Sixty: Volume 1″ and “RoutePRO: Volume 1.”

“Zero To Sixty: Volume 1″ includes all of the essential information and strategies that you’ll need to get your business off to a strong start. “Zero To Sixty: Volume 1″ is part of our small business start-up kit and comes with a set of documents and checklists that you can use while starting your business.

“RoutePRO: Volume 1″ was created for those who are new to their area or feel “geographically challenged.” RoutePRO teaches you how to create efficient, profitable routes in just minutes, even if you are unfamiliar with your surroundings. RoutePRO shows you a variety of techniques and free tools that you can use to maximize your efficiency, and therefore, your profit!

Subsequent DVDs are currently in production. If there is something you’re dying to know that you would like included, please contact us and let us know!

How can I know if a courier business is right for me?

If you like fresh air and working for yourself, chances are the courier business is right for you. Starting your own courier business is a low-stress lucrative field with long-term rewards. Taking the right approach is vital in the beginning to reach the level where you can employ other drivers and work on managing and growing your business fulltime.

Again, we don’t want to give away too much, but we lay out the roadmap for you in “Volume 1: Zero To Sixty.”

What if I don’t know my surroundings very well?

We created “RoutePRO: Volume 1″ for you! To help those who are new to their surroundings or are perhaps a bit “geographically challenged,” we show you how you can use free tools to obtain and manipulate powerful geographic data and create efficient, profitable routes in just minutes.

Eventually, you’ll purchase a portable GPS unit that will give you driving directions in the car and help you calculate distances, but you won’t need one to get started.

Starting Your Business

How much can I make?

You already know the answer to this question! Your income potential is only limited by your imagination and your work ethic. With dedication and imagination, it is possible to grow a courier service into a multi-million dollar enterprise.

Unlike working for someone else, YOU determine how much you work and how hard you work, and YOU get to keep the fruits of your labor.

Won’t I be competing with big companies like FedEx and UPS?

No! The large carriers like FedEx and UPS specialize in national parcel delivery and fulfillment for companies.

We’ll show you how to target niche segments of the market that FedEx and UPS do not serve. There are many businesses that need specialized services that only a private courier can offer, and that’s a lucrative place to start your business.

We’re in a recession and companies are cutting costs. Doesn’t that make it a bad time for service businesses like couriers?

It’s actually a great time to be in the courier industry! Ironically, courier businesses tend to expand during recessions. This is because couriers actually save money for many businesses. It is far cheaper to utilize a courier who can spread transportation costs between many clients.

Think of a carpool. It is far less expensive to commute when there are four people sharing the costs. By handling multiple clients at a time, a courier can spread those costs between 20 or 30 different clients, thereby creating huge savings for everyone.

Also, many businesses cut back to the bare minimum staffing requirements during economic downturns. This leaves no nonessential employees who can run errands, thus reinforcing the need for a courier.

Won’t gas prices kill my profits?

Transportation costs create the need for couriers. A courier spreads transportation costs between dozens of clients, saving each of them money. As transportation costs rise, the potential savings for each business increase, thereby increasing the value of the services that the courier provides and the potential fee that the courier can charge.

Put more simply, couriers pass the costs of transportation on to their clients, so the profitability of the business is less dependent on transportation costs.

Additionally, the increasing presence of alternative-fuel vehicles creates new opportunities for couriers to maximize efficiency and create even more value for their clients.

How much money will I need to get started?

If you already have a vehicle and a cell phone, there’s a good chance you can get your business up and running for less than $500.

One of the greatest advantages of starting a home-based courier business is the little investment needed to begin. Virtually all you need is a reliable vehicle and a cell phone. In the DVD, we cover all the start up essentials you will need and also discuss the things you won’t need to buy.

What if I can only work a few hours per day?

No problem! Another great advantage to the courier industry, and particularly of starting your own home-based small business, is that you can tailor the business to your lifestyle. You can work as little or as much as you want and still receive an income.

Obviously, however, the more time you spend with your business, the faster you will be able to grow and expand your income.

What if I already have a job?

A courier service’s clients are primarily other businesses, which means the majority of clients employ couriers between the hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

If you are working during these times, you will need to fill the niche of providing after hours delivery services. This can be a lucrative part of the market, but your potential client base may be smaller to begin with.

However, like we mentioned directly above, you can tailor your home-based small courier business to fit your lifestyle.

What equipment do I need to begin?

You will need a reliable vehicle and a cellular phone. You will also need a clipboard and access to a computer. You may or may not need a dolly, depending on the needs of your first clients.

What if other courier services already operate in my area?

This can be one of the best signs that your courier service has a good chance to succeed. We don’t want to let the cat out of the bag here, but other courier services operating in your area will be vital to your success as you start and grow your business.

Will I get tired of driving?

In “Volume 1: Zero To Sixty” we will give you the roadmap for growing your business to a level where you no longer drive. Starting from a home-based small business, we’ll show you how to grow your business to a multi-employee enterprise where you manage the business, rather than work the business.
