Unusual Methods For Delivery Work

Sometimes, choosing the right method for delivery work is just as important as choosing the jobs you undertake. After all, there's no sense in becoming a bicycle messenger if you're planning to be delivering heavy items such as computers or furniture. And a large, sturdy van probably might not be the best choice for rapid, building-to-building inner city deliveries. But how can you tell what sort of method is right for you? Have a look at a few different ways to conduct your delivery work!

Horse and Carriage

In the ‘Olden Days', before the invention of the internal combustion engine, humble messengers engaged on their delivery work would only have the company of their humble horse. Whether it was a cabman on the streets of Victorian London, or a member of the Pony Express delivering messages across America, a messenger and his horse would (by necessity) be nigh-on inseparable. So can horses work in today's highly competitive world of fast-paced deliveries? The answer, unfortunately, is probably not. Traffic has been known to spook horses, making motorway travel difficult to achieve without being thrown from your saddle. Horses also conspicuously lack heaters or air-conditioners (or, in fact, air fresheners) as options, making all-weather delivery work a nightmare for the horse-owner.


Delivery work is a vital part of today's urban society, and freewheeling ‘bike messengers' can often be seen pelting through the traffic of modern cities. While a bike is a fine choice for rapid inner-city transport (as well as a great way of keeping fit while you go about your business), it is limiting in the sort of items you can deliver. Many bike messengers can only be couriers for small items or documents, and long-distance delivery work is made much harder using human-powered transport.


Looking for a mode of transport that deals equally well with travelling over land, ice and water? If so, then the hovercraft may just be for you. Used throughout the world as specialised transport, and often after natural disasters that may make for inhospitable terrain Autel Diaglink, the hovercraft can come in many sizes, from small single-person variants commonly for sport or passenger service, to huge hovercraft used for military applications. If you're looking to carry extremely large loads (such as cars, tanks, or other large equipment), the hovercraft may be a wise choice - though you'll get a few funny looks attempting to navigate a hovercraft through the streets on a delivery to a residential address.


Previously the domain of 1920's science-fiction, the jet-pack may seem an unlikely choice for delivery work, with such a limited amount of space. In the future, however, jetpack technology may just make a breakthrough. For those looking to appear as stylish as James Bond in ‘Thunderball', a jetpack may be just the thing for accepting those aerial delivery jobs you may have had to decline in the past. A few simple operations to replace every bone in your body with stronger material to avoid the stresses of flight, and you're ready to go about your delivery work. By the year 2040 Autel MaxiSys MS906BT, perhaps such investments will practically pay for themselves!
