There are actually many methods and ways to get cheap courier service in singapore. I will share with you some of the most effective methods to use when negotiating with a local delivery or courier company in Singapore. However, do take note these tips are only applicable for businesses or individuals with relatively high volume of deliveries per month (at least 2-3 a day)
– Do not look at their base courier services prices. The listed rates are generally only for ad hoc deliveries and is also usually not inclusive of any kind of CBD or outskirt surcharges. On the other hand, if you have regular deliveries, it is virtually guaranteed that courier and delivery firms will definitely give you discounts due to the high volume of deliveries you require from them per month.
– Just check out their websites. Most good courier companies like PCA Masters and Roadmaster list out their prices on their website and it is very easy to look through them. Negotiate with them after you’re well aware of the various pricing levels and prices that they offer. Only by knowing what they already offer, will you be able to properly negotiate with them.
– You need to ideally know the approximate amount of deliveries you require every month as either an individual or business. When you know the amount of deliveries per month required, you would be able to make quick mental calculations all the time as you are negotiating with the courier company over the phone call or email. From this, you will be able to figure out what is the maximum price you are willing to pay per delivery or per month and then negotiate from that standpoint.
– Ask them if they provide any kind of credit payments. Some courier companies might only accept cash. Although from what I know, Singapore courier companies mostly allow credit, some do not. Just make sure to check and do not blindly assume anything.
With all the above tips and tricks, you should be well-prepared to negotiate great and cheap prices for your Singapore courier services.
