Why Choose Courier Service from Zipp Express

by | Dec 7, 2021

If you live in the St. Louis area, there are many reasons why you should hire Zipp Express’ courier service. At Zipp Express, we understand the importance of having a reliable, on-time small parcel and document delivery.  Accurate or not, businesses are judged by the people they hire. If your courier is unreliable, then your customer may assume you are, too. Our couriers don’t just work for us, they work for you too. It’s to our advantage to make you look good!

We’ve put together a list of five qualities you should look for in your courier service. And five reasons why you should choose Zipp Express as your St. Louis based courier service.

Location, Location, Location!

Outsourcing has become a popular solution for many businesses. Shipping companies and courier services are no different. When you search for a shipping partner or courier service, you will want to ask where their headquarters is located. You could talk to someone overseas who does not know that there is a snowstorm in your area. Or that the St. Louis Cardinals have a huge game letting out and causing a monster traffic-jam in the very part of the city you’re trying to get a package delivered to.

Unless you are attempting to send a package abroad, it is best to hire local companies to handle local deliveries.

Zipp Express is headquartered right here in St. Louis, Missouri, centrally located just one mile west of I-270 off I-70, ten minutes from Lambert International airport. This business is owned and run by people who are local themselves. We’ve been serving the St. Louis area for over thirty years. While we’ve expanded our services to include trucking and final mile delivery, we started out as a local courier and delivery company and we do it better than anyone else in the area.

Over the years, our business has grown exponentially. But our dedication to our local customers hasn’t changed. We feel a personal connection to the city and the people who live here. That’s why we’ve invested in the community by both living and running a business here.

Furthermore, we hire locally too—from our dispatchers, to our customer service agents, to our massive crew of couriers, drivers, and delivery people. Our staff knows the city and knows exactly how to avoid that traffic jam caused by the big game letting out.

Courier Service Availability

Your first concern should be how soon your courier can pick up your item. Will they work with your schedule? Do they have regular routes? And do they have on-call couriers who can make special pickups? Will they guarantee on time delivery?

Zipp Express offers both seasonal and dedicated routes. We have monthly, weekly, and daily delivery service routes—all designed to accommodate any timeframe. We also have drivers on-call to help with last minute requests. And when we guarantee delivery by a certain time, you can count on us to meet that obligation!

Zipp Express is just a phone call away. Our dispatchers are on duty 24/7/365 days a year.


Does the courier service have size and weight limitations? And are there any materials they won’t deliver? It’s important to establish this ahead of time so there are no rude surprises. If your concern is payroll documents or real estate closing documents, then weight limits may not be a concern. But if you run an auto parts store or need a case of brake fluid delivered, then this is important.

Zipp Express makes regular stops on a daily, weekly and monthly basis – dropping off pharmaceuticals, lab specimens, mail, payroll, banking, auto parts, and many other items. We have a fleet of cars, vans, covered trucks, and sprinter vans so we can handle any size delivery. It doesn’t matter whether you need payroll delivered to the other side of town or an auto part delivered to a mechanic five blocks away, our couriers can get them there!

Willing to Provide Proof of Delivery

Confirmation of on time delivery is important to both the recipient and the sender. If a service is reluctant to provide this, give them a pass. Reliable couriers are happy to let you track the movement of the items you’re sending.

Zipp Express offers state-of-the art package tracking and proof of delivery. We are only too happy for you to see where your parcel or package is going and when it gets there.

This is especially important if you have time sensitive deliveries such as real estate closing paperwork.

Insured Against Loss

If the unforeseen happens and your parcel or letter gets lost or damaged while in the courier’s possession, what recourse do you have? What guarantees does the courier service offer?

Zipp Express is fully insured against loss. This means that if something happens to your item while it’s in our possession, we cover your loss.

Our drivers are subject to extensive background checks for your peace of mind. They are fully trained and prepared to deal with all challenges they might face—including harsh weather, traffic jams, and accidents.

Our Promise

Though we began as a courier service, these days Zipp Express is a full-service shipping and delivery company. We have flatbeds, tractor trailers, refrigerator trucks, box trucks and more. We offer final mile delivery within a 150-mile radius of St. Louis. Along with our special white glove delivery services, we are licensed for expedited service to 48 states. In short, we’re going places. Lots of places. But our primary concern is St. Louis and we are no less dedicated to our local customers now than when we started 30 years ago.

Zipp Express provides quality service daily. We believe in our motto “On time—Every time!” Our couriers are professionals. You can expect them to greet you courteously and hand off your package and provide you all requested documentation. They handle all parcels with respect and care while in their possession. And they deliver them in the same professional fashion.

You can trust Zipp Express with your business.
