Have you considered a career as a courier driver or rider in Singapore? Here are some awesome tips to help you decide on this career.
First of all, do you already own a car, van or a bike? Chances are, if you own it, and you’re working a job that doesn’t make use of your vehicle to generate income, you’re simply losing money on it (e.g. it’s purely an expense). However, when you’re a courier, you’re actually using your vehicle to make money, and that will significantly and directly defray your vehicle maintenance costs. That is a good thing for you!
Second of all, if you don’t have a bike, car or van, there are still certain courier companies which are willing to hire full timers. For such courier companies, you may even be able to simply drive the company’s van or rider their bike instead. Not only does this mean that you can get to fulfill your career as a courier, you also usually able to drive the vehicle home after each day! This means that you never have to take the public transport to work ever again. Although you may not be able to use it freely during the weekends, you’re usually allowed to drive to work and go back home using the courier company’s vehicle if you’re a full timer.
Third of all, being a courier in Singapore is actually pretty engaging. This is because you meet mostly business owners or office workers who deliver items (instead of consumers who are simply waiting for their delivery items at home). This is because Singapore is known more for its pro business environment (and hence lots of businesses set up in Singapore and have a high demand for courier services) rather than a living environment. That’s why most deliveries are conducted between businesses, rather than individuals if you were to look at places like Europe, America or Australia.
Fourth of all, if you’re customer service oriented, then a courier service career in Singapore is perfectly suited for you. The main difference between a courier service personnel and a deliveryman, is that you’re actually considered a premium service, where you are seen as a value-adder to your customers, and hence they treat you with some real respect, rather than seeing you as a mode of transportation with the consumer simply waiting for their ordered food or item to arrive.
