Rates & Fees  












Fair and Competitive Pricing for All.

Point to point delivery rates are quickly generated by our proprietary High Resolution Pricing System. Every address is assigned a zone, and every zone to zone combination has a corresponding price. This base price is for standard delivery service, and will only vary if you choose to upgrade to a faster service level or downgrade to our economy service.

BIKE SERVICES

Our bike prices start at $8.25 for local standard service. Each time a messenger crosses a zone, the price will increase by approximately 50 cents. We believe that our prices should reflect the effort involved in completing a delivery, and that is why longer runs cost a bit more than shorter runs. Similarly, a larger package that takes up more space in the messenger’s bag, requiring more effort to transport, will incur a small Oversize Charge of $3.60.

CRITERIA FOR OVERSIZE PACKAGES DELIVERED BY BIKE

  • Large Tube: 30” in length or 3“ in diameter or greater.
  • Large Package: 2” in thickness or 5lbs (ream of paper) in weight or greater.
  • Large Flat: 18“ or more in length or width.

In addition to standard bike service, we offer rush service for an additional $6, direct rush service for an additional $12, and economy service at a 20% discount.

VEHICLE SERVICES

Our vehicle prices start at $16.00 for local standard service. All cities and towns in New England have an established flat rate based on mileage. In addition to standard car service, we offer rush service for an additional 50%, direct rush service for an additional 100%, and economy service at a 20% discount. These % surcharges will decrease as the base price of the job increases. Special rates apply to deliveries requiring a truck.

CRITERIA FOR ADDITIONAL CHARGES FOR PACKAGES DELIVERED BY VEHICLE

  • Total weight exceeds 25 pounds.
  • Van or wagon request to accommodate large posters or banners.
  • Two-person cargo van service.
  • Truck with liftgate required.
  • 5% to 20% fuel surcharge (will vary with the price of gas).
