FAQ About our courier service
UrgentExpressCourier.com.au is owned and powered by Zoom2u, we offer a courier service throughout Australia. At March 2015 we currently operate in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, we use our own team of couriers. What’s different about us is we allow you to register online and setup an account in 30 seconds, try doing that with any other courier company. Once you have an account you see the live location of our couriers on a map and place a booking. When a booking is placed it’s automatically sent to the closest courier via their iPhone or Android, the courier then decides if they want to accept the booking. If they don’t accept it starts been sent out to the rest of our network. Once a courier accepts the booking you will receive an email with the details of who the courier and their contact number. From this point on you can now track the status of your delivery in real time via our booking system. If you ever have a question you can call the courier directly. It’s simple and easy. If you use a courier on a regular basis you will notice the difference!

Yes. all our couriers have completed a courier training program along with passing a background check. In the unlikely event, when damage of goods occurred, we pay up to $300 to cover any damages. A rating to the courier is solicited each time a courier delivery is completed to make sure all our couriers are assessed through a star rating.
What happens if my goods are damaged or lost?
It’s very unlikely that your goods will be lost or even damaged. The reason for this is because we don’t use a warehouse to transfer goods from one driver to the next. When your courier picks up your goods they will take the item to the delivery location.
In the unlikely event your goods are lost or damaged we will pay up to $300 except for items in the restricted items as per our customer terms and conditions.
What happens if I cancel or no one is present?
If you cancel your delivery prior to the courier being on route to your location there isn’t any charge.
If the courier arrives and no one is at the pickup location you will be charged the full pickup fee. We will however try to contact you by phone and sms and wait up to 10 minutes.
If no one is at the drop off location we will wait 10 minutes before we return your item to the pickup locations. You will be charged the full fee plus the return fee. Our couriers will try to call and sms prior to returning any goods.
Can I call the courier?
Yes, you can directly contact your courier. Every booking will be provided with the courier’s phone number to be able to get connected with them. However the ability to track via the app reduces the need to speak with them.
