Mark: Hi, it's Mark from Top Local. We're here with Mark Huggan of Phantom Couriers in Vancouver, Vancouver's favourite courier service and one of the top 100 fastest growing companies in the whole province of British Columbia, and they do a fantastic job. How you doing today, Mark?
Mark: We're doing great. Thanks.
Mark: So, people working from home. Sometimes they need, they've forgotten things or it's unexpected. They need deliveries. Do you handle that?
Mark: Of course we do. There's a wide variety of reasons why people that are remote workers need courier service. Say an architect, right? There's a change order in those plans. We've talked about that before. Recently we've had some architects that were working outside of Canada and when they got back, they were asked to self quarantine themselves because, you know, an office of 90 people. So of course we took their workstations to them, made sure that everything that they needed at the office was there so they could set up and work remotely. The IT guys were back and forth all the time. IT guys are always sending stuff to remote workers because something's always, it's just like at work, you know, and they're like, "Hey, I'm out of this". It's like, but yeah, now you're 60 kilometres away from the office.
A lot of people want to work remotely because of the traffic and the commute. So they'll use the courier to consolidate all that work effort so people aren't zipping back and forth and not getting the work done that they intended to do that day. So remote workers use couriers all the time.
Mark: What about the weather? Do you guys have snow tires?
Mark: Of course. We have snow tires. It's Canada. Didn’t we invent the snow tire? Yeah, we definitely do. And some of our drivers just say, “Oh, I'm all season tires”, so those guys don't really go above Marine Drive in North Van. So we're not sending him out there, but out to the Valley, definitely snow tires. It gets pretty crazy out there. There's a plane out there past Chilliwack. It's bananas. You must have snow tires. Whistler all the time.
You know, we've got clients that live in Whistler and own businesses in Vancouver, and they don't want to come down here because it's beautiful in Whistler. So we'll do the commute. There's all sorts of things.
We delivered some massage lotion up there because they forgot it at work. But they really, really wanted it because they were used to it. It's like, I don't, I can't work without it. I like the smell. It's that simple. If your employees working at home and they're not comfortable, they won't work. So if we make them comfortable and that's a problem that we overcome and that's for the solution. It's super interesting people. Yeah, we get it done for you.
Mark: So there you go. If you're working from home and you need a delivery and tell your team at the office, the guys to call are Phantom Couriers. They can reach Mark at (604) 899-5447. Mark and his team. There's a large company, or you can book online, of course, at phantomcouriers.com. Thanks a lot, Mark.
Mark: You betcha Mark. Have a nice night.
