With other delivery services, you sometimes need to jump through hoops to get a quote or to place that first service order — not Dispatch, though. We make the process as simple as possible, and the good news is you can do it yourself! 

While our Delivery Experts are always happy to help, there's no lengthy setup required, no need to have a conversation with Sales, and no waiting for a callback from a company representative when you deliver with Dispatch. Plus, there’s no confusing process to stumble through in order to get pricing. When we say on-demand delivery, we mean it.

You Can Quote Us On That

To get started, simply use our instant estimator tool on our website for an immediate delivery quote.

You can then sign up for a Dispatch account and proceed with placing your first order. All you’ll need is a form of payment and a bit of logistical information. 

From there, the order goes out to our independent contractor driver base in the requested delivery area. One of our trained, professional drivers will get assigned to your order and be on their way to pick it up. You'll be able to track the order's progress from start to finish, with status updates sent right to your cellphone or inbox. Better yet, you can add a customer’s email or cell phone number to the order so they can receive the updates too.

To further streamline the process and help keep your deliveries organized, we also offer parcel labels that you can print and attach to every order. 

For more information on where we currently deliver or what qualifications our drivers must have, visit our website.

One Platform, All Your Delivery Needs

One of the best things about using the Dispatch Platform is that you have everything you need to manage your deliveries in one place, including all of your customer contact info, order data, reports, and more. Our software also makes it easy for you to manage access to your account and each person's permissions.
