While I found the online platform of ZIP efficient and easy to use and the fact that these guys are quite reliable, it has been the few times I’ve been in a pinch and needed a pick up delivery that ZIP has really impressed me. Our shipping costs are an important part of our business for our clients; the fact that zip is very competitive and are effective on the time sensitive deliveries is a big reason for why we use them without hesitation.
