Been using Defenda couriers about 5-6 times this last year, the service has been great. Val is always there when I arrive to help remove the pallet and has it pre booked on ready to go up to the service facility we use in Yorkshire.

We used Defenda to distribute 60 parcels recently. Mark Derbyshire provided excellent customer service and communication. The job was completed quickly, successfully and to a high standard. Mark stayed in touch throughout the whole process from beginning to end. I would highly recommend Defenda, particularly for large volumes of parcels.

Same Day Courier Service UK

Defenda Couriers’ same day courier service handles a network of over 4000 courier vehicles nationwide: ranging from micro vans, through small, medium, large and extra long wheelbase panel vans. More specialist vehicles such as Luton vans with tail lifts or curtain siders also play an important part in providing our clients with versatile transport options.

Having access to such a large number of vehicles benefits our clients in a number of ways. Not only will you receive an extremely quick response to an urgent collection & delivery request… normally within 30 minutes of calling us. But also highly discounted rates — as often it is possible to carry your item as a backload with a driver heading back home after completing another delivery and delivering your goods on route. Not only does this provide you with a welcome cost saving, it also helps the environment by reducing unloaded driving miles.

We already operate a number of small electric vehicles within our same day courier service and we plan to increase this number and add larger vans as they become available & battery technology and range improves.

Although most people associate a nationwide courier service with the delivery of small parcels our versatile range of vehicles allows us to delivery pallets & loose loads on a same day delivery service to all parts of the UK mainland. We can provide courier delivery to offshore UK destinations but whether we can do so on the same day will depend on ferry crossings.
