Awesome service! I did not have an account and created one the day that I needed a package sent. They do not play games... like some other companies making you wait to verify your registration, they were at my office right away and the package was delivered shortly after! I will be using Phantom again for my courier needsread more

Awesome Service! My supervisor had a very urgent package that needed to get to Fed Ex from a residence in Vancouver,... BC. Somehow, the scheduled Fed Ex pickup did not happen, which left us scrambling for a courier service late in the afternoon. Based in the US and having no clue what courier service to call, I literally googled "Vancouver BC courier services" and started calling in the order they popped up. Three different companies responded with "sorry, we are almost closed, cannot help you". Phantom Courier was fourth on the list and honestly, I was expecting the same response. Instead, they immediately jumped on the issue, got a courier to the residence, picked up the package and ended up having to drive to the airport to drop it off. I admit, I was calling about every 30 minutes or so just to check the status as it was critical the package get to Fed Ex before closing. Phantom was originally going to drop off the package at a Fed Ex location in the city, but realized they were not going to make the drop off cut off time (4:45pm, really?? So early??) , so they diverted to the airport (with my approval). I was notified when the package was dropped off in time and they even followed up with me this morning. Tawny, Carmen and a gentleman (I am SO sorry, I forgot his name) worked as a team to get this package delivered on time -- each time I called, I did get a different representative, but every single person knew what I was calling about and had an answer for me on the status. I called this afternoon to tell the manager how very happy I am with their service and to give a huge Thank You to the team who worked on this delivery. He knew immediately the whole story, even without being on duty last night! This level of taking ownership pride of customer service is rare in today's world -- I genuinely appreciate the "we are here for you, we will do what it takes, we will not let you down" attitude. It truly was as if I had my very own personal group of Avengers spring into action to save the day -- and they did!!! If ever we are in need of a courier service all the way from the southern US, we will be sure to call on Phantom Couriers!!!! I highly recommend them to everyone -- but please, save time and call them FIRST and not fourth!! 🙂read more

These guys are great. Always early or on time, good rates, and good people. Our office has been using them to get... confidential documents to and from clients, and we couldn't be happier. Their website is straight forward, and if you need to you can always call.read more

We recently worked with Dion from Phantom Couriers and I was blown away by the service we received. From the initial... inquiry, the level of customer service was outstanding. Dion was communicative and quick to find solutions for us. Is clear that this company cares about making their clients happy and I would not hesitate for a second to recommend them and will be working with them in the future. Thank you for going above and beyond Dion!read more

What Service Options Does the Company Offer?

A good local courier provides several levels of service for you to choose from, depending on your needs. This will help you build a trusted relationship that lasts well into the future.

Is the Local Courier’s Pricing Structure Transparent and Competitive?

A good service provider will offer a transparent pricing structure. There are a lot of choices in using a courier - type of transport (car, motorcycle, bike), how quick is the delivery needed, two way services, etc. Clients must be able to call and easily find out exactly how much it costs to send a package or document, with no hidden fees.

Does the Courier Company Use Up To Date Technology?

A courier company that uses technology to manage, monitor, and communicate orders and deliveries is likely to be more efficient than a company that uses outdated processes. Will they provide personalized services to you (eg. cheque pickup)? The technology used will provide real-time tracking of packages and signature verification upon delivery.

What Procedures Are Provided to Solve Problems?

Even an experienced local courier service can have a delivery go wrong. For Instance, a delayed delivery of your package due to unforeseen complications. If this happens, the company should have mechanisms for providing personal feedback to you to keep you updated with instant constant feedback on the status of your delivery.

Can The Courier Handle Sensitive Deliveries?

There are times when you need to send special or sensitive packages. A courier company will have a procedure for handling sensitive deliveries. For instance, a medical delivery such as DNA samples or other highly sensitive packages that require extreme care when handling and in transit. Good local courier companies will handle packages that are highly fragile with extreme care.
