Why Use H&B Disher Courier
Disher Logo 

There are a lot of different courier companies out there; there can be no argument about that. However, there are quite a few compelling arguments that demonstrate why you should think about using H & B Disher courier to fulfill your courier needs as they arise.
The number one reason to use H & B Disher courier is simply because they always put the needs of their customers first. Knowing that businesses run around the clock these days, Disher offers 24 hour courier service. In addition, to make their services as accessible as possible they have web portals for order placement, tracking, and to view your invoices.
Customer service is the one through line that runs through the entire Disher organization. They believe in taking care of any needs their customers may have. They will help you find any shipping solution you require, from LTL shipping to urgent rush delivery services. They also make sure to keep in contact with you so you don't get any surprises the way you can from some other courier companies.
Finally, Disher Courier also realizes that giving great customer service to you also means giving great customer service to your clients. They realize that when they are delivering your packages to a client or customer, they aren't just acting as a representative of the courier company, but also of your organization. They will always be professional and polite, and put their best foot forward with your clients so as to leave a lasting positive impression.

Special delivery - Tight window
One of our clients called from his downtown Toronto location on a typical midweek afternoon about 4pm and asked "Can you get a courier out to one of our clients in Oakville by 5 pm?". My response was "I'd be lying if I said I could guarantee that during rush hour but give me a phone number and I'll see what we could do". We immediately dispatched a driver to pick up the parcel and simultaneously made a phone call to the intended recipient in Oakville.
Next flight out courier delivery

We quickly learned that she needed to be at the airport for around 5:45 pm in order to catch a flight - and that parcel had to leave with her. We simply arranged to meet her at Toronto Pearson International Airport's departures terminal 3. The driver would locate her by calling her cell phone upon arrival at the terminal.

Successful expedited delivery

The connection was made, with time to spare, and the lady made her flight with parcel in hand. And the best part: we allowed our client to score a few points with his client!

This is just an everyday occurrence for Disher Courier: going the extra mile by making the phone calls when challenges arrive that are beyond our control.

You Don't Need a Resolution to Have a Great 2010!  

 A New Year's resolution serves no real point. Usually, instead of achieving your goal, you just end up making yourself feel bad when you don't achieve it. The vast majority of New Year's resolutions are failures. If you really want a better life in 2010, avoid the negativity that comes with a resolution, and instead, concentrate on just making some tiny adjustments to your lifestyle where you can. The results can in the end, be much greater.
Most resolutions have to do with our health. We all want to be healthier, skinnier, exercise more, etc. Etc. Instead of phrasing those desires like an ultimatum, like a resolution, simply start implementing some changes. You don't need a resolution to visit the gym every week to get fit. Instead, start taking the stairs at work instead of the elevator. You could also find a sport that you enjoy playing, or set small, achievable goals about walking more. These are the types of goals that you can meet, and which can really have a positive effect on your health over the course of 2010.
Remember to find the multiple benefits in any given change you make to your life. The more benefits that you can see, the easier it's going to be to stick with the changes. A good example of this is the money that you can save, allowing you to do more things that you enjoy, as most of our bad habits cost us money. For every time you walk instead of drive, don't grab fast food, or for every less beer you buy, you've saved money that you can put towards something like a family vacation. Good incentive for cutting back! 

Toronto's Winter On-Goings

Everyone knows that winter in Canada has a fearsome reputation, but Toronto doesn't get it as bad as the rest of the country, and February is a month when there is loads to enjoy in Canada's greatest city. There are festivals and events ongoing throughout the month that will give you lots to do during the Toronto winter.
First of all, there are various events across the city in February that are connected to Black History month. Heritage, cultural, and arts organizations all organize events to recognize this.
There are of course three important days in February which have events around Toronto. Valentine's Day is a great time to check out some of the best dining in the city, and the day after in 2010 is family day, a new holiday in Ontario designed to let families spend an extra day together. If you feel adventurous, you can check out Groundhog Day in Wiarton and see if Wiarton Willie sees his shadow or not!
Besides Valentine's Day, another great time for dining in February is Winterlicious, a food festival linked to the WinterCity Festival. The WinterCity festival has great free entertainment across the city, and when combined with the great food of Winterlicious, makes for a great day out in early February. This year the festivals run from the 29th of January until Feb. 11th.
If you have other interests, February is home to two great trade shows in the Toronto area. The Canadian International Auto Show is sure to please all car enthusiasts, and runs from the 12th to the 21st in 2010. The National Home Show runs from the 19th to the 28th, and is going to fulfill all your home improvement or renovation desires.
