When it comes transporting goods, we all have concerns. Whether you are sending something valuable, or something that needs extra care and attention for your business, sending a package involves trusting an expert. In fact, it often involves trusting an entire company, one that you may be working with for the first time. It is essential for them to take the utmost care of your goods and to make sure they reach their end destination on time!

We have all heard horror stories about packages being lost, delivered too late, being delivered damaged – why should you ever expect to pay for that kind of service?

Here at Reliant, we want you to know that we have chosen our name for a reason! Our customer satisfaction will always be our absolute priority and you can trust our services to deliver your packages for you, safely and on time, every time.

However, we do understand that not everyone might choose to have their goods to be delivered through road haulage. Keep reading and we’ll show you why getting your items up and on the road is always going to be the absolute best choice for your packages.

Delivering directly from point to point

A huge advantage of road transportation is the fact that our team will pick up the package from your door and take it directly to your recipient. There’s never any need for you to intervene or to take control of your goods on route.

This also means that your package will stay with our team. Unlike air or rail transfers, or long supply chains where your package will be passed from person to person and place to place, your package will travel from your home – with our team – directly to its final destination. Of course, as you can imagine, cutting out the middleman will save you money, time and energy!

A reliable service

Due to the fact that your package will remain with our team, you will not have to worry about it getting lost on the way, as you will always have eyes on where your consignment is at all times. Thanks to our smart tracking service, your package will never be out of sight and you will only have to rely on the one team to get it there safely!


Since your package will be picked up from your doorstep, you will be able to choose from a range of different times and dates that suit you best for collection. Unlike having to post a package yourself which requires working within a very particular schedule, with Reliant road haulage, you get to choose what best suits you and we will work with your schedule. In fact, in certain cases, if urgent haulage is necessary, you will even be able to use our same day and/or next day service!

Delivering packages, no matter the distance

For short distances especially, choosing road transport truly is the best option. It will be significantly quicker to get your package from A to B, and you run far less of a risk of losing the consignment on route.

It should automatically seem far more logical to have a package delivered over a short distance, using the roads, than to use air or long chain transfer. Both of these latter services require more time for loading and unloading, and will naturally involve more people in the transit. By entrusting your package with one group of people and one courier, you are far more likely to see it delivered quickly and efficiently.

A safer delivery

Of course, as stated, the state of your final delivery can be a major concern. By choosing road transportation for the transfer of your goods, you are reducing the number of people involved in the delivery, and are therefore reducing the number of times that your packages will move around. What’s more, road deliveries tend to be smoother, on the whole, than via other courier methods.

What’s more, at Reliant, you have our professional guarantee that we will take exceptional care of your items, no matter what they are, nor where they are heading. Road haulage is only as reliable or as careful as the team who handles it – and you absolutely get professional care guaranteed with Reliant.

Remote pickup is always possible

One of the greatest advantages of a haulage service on the road is that, no matter where you live or work, we will pick up the package from wherever you need us and we will deliver it to wherever it needs to go. For those who live and/or work in smaller areas, it is always a concern about whether or not you can receive certain items that you are expecting, as your address may not be the easiest to locate. It is an easy way to lose items and can be a huge inconvenience. That’s why, here at Reliant, we will make sure that your package will get to you, wherever you are!

Even if you’re in a remote location and live beyond the city limits, we’re always ready to support you. All you ever need do is get in touch – if you’re connected via the roads in one way or another, we’re confident we can get you to and from where you need to go.


As you can easily see, there are plenty of reasons why road haulage is the best mode of transport for package pickups and deliveries. In fact, the list could go on and on!

However, if you are still feeling unsure regarding some aspects of road couriering, then do not hesitate to contact one of our friendly haulage service team members here at Reliant. Contact us on 02075 506589, or send us an email at info@reliantcouriers.co.uk – and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
