I am considering starting a courier service and using your product to help me get started. My question is I live in a rural town located about 75 miles from a major US city. There are no other courier services that I know of besides USP and the obvious. I think that maybe I should check around with local businesses to see if I can find out if there are any other small competitors. None are listed in the phone book. What are your thoughts?

Hi Brad,

I think you are on the right track, you never know if there is a need for a delivery service (or any other business) until you do the market research. You are doing exactly what we advice people to do, that is ask local businesses who are good candidates for a courier service about their needs, who they use, how much they pay, etc. We provide a questionnaire with our startup kit that you can use to hand out to local businesses to gather this info. This is also a good way to introduce yourself and start to establish relationships with local businesses, they can also point you in the direction of other businesses to give your questionnaire to. Best of luck to you.
