Tips to get the most out of your courier service
What kind of insurance coverage is provided for shipments? If a shipment is lost, what is the procedure to submit a claim?

Every shipment is covered for $50 value. Extra insurance is available upon request. If a shipment is lost or damaged by a Disher broker, the client simply has to inform us. Disher carries $50,000 cargo insurance. A claim would be made to the insurance company.

Broker/Employee of the Month
There are many reasons why Roland Superville is one of the top drivers with Disher Courier and the most senior in tenure. Roland is one of our most reliable and consistent drivers. He knows the city as well as anyone and is always thinking. But, most important of all, Roland is by far the most concientious driver in regards to his delivery due times. 
Delivery due times are important to our clients and more deliveries mean more money for our brokers as they work on commissions. This can be a conflict of interests for some drivers, but never for Roland. Getting his deliveries done on time is his priority and he displays this everyday with his deliveries and sometimes refusing deliveries if it jeopardizes his due times.
Congratulations Roland as May's "Broker/Employee of the Month", and thanks for making Disher Courier one of the top couriers in the GTA.

Having Fun in the Sun Without Spending All Your Money!

ParkSummer is a time to spend with family, and finding time to enjoy together as a family is one of the most joyful parts of the summer months. However, one of the largest unfortunate obstacles to this currently is the economy. Unfortunately, many, many households no longer have the means to take vacations anymore or cannot afford to take the time off of work, let alone the cost to spend even a day at Disney Land. Fortunately, however, there is a lot of fun that can be had in the summertime that's a lot closer to home. 
One of the greatest resources that you have closer to home for your summertime activities is the parks in your area. Parks are one of our greatest recreational resources and yet they go grossly underutilized by a huge amount of the population. These parks are not only often beautiful green spaces with features like BBQ or fire pits, they quite often also have pools and other water recreational areas, a great place to just relax with the family and enjoy being out of doors on a nice day. 
If you go to a larger State Park instead of a City Park, there are often even larger things for you to enjoy. Many feature a lake or a river that you can enjoy with a boat rental, or offer cabin rentals or camping spaces for you to spend a few nights out in the open. Camping in a tent is a great way to minimize the amount you are spending while on vacation, and yet is still a lot of fun, and something almost every member of a family is sure to enjoy. Check online for State Parks in your area and to see what sorts of facilities are offered there.

Montreal: A Fabulous Weekend Getaway

MontrealMontreal is a great destination for a weekend of fun with family, friends, or your significant other. As the largest city in Quebec, a province which stands unique with a different culture and provincial language than the rest of Canada, Montreal is one of the busiest and most interesting cities in Canada. A historic city located on an island, Montreal was once called Ville-Marie, but now stands as a perfect example of the modern metropolitan and multicultural cities which Canada has become known for. A trip to this culturally diverse, cosmopolitan city is an affordable vacation alternative especially in these tough economic times.
The city of Montreal features many attractions that will appeal to its visitors. Mount Royal, the hill which the city was built around, is a popular destination for many people out for a walk. On cooler days, the famous underground city will provide shopping, theatres, and restaurants all connected by a series of underground walkways. Mont-Tremblant Resort nestled in the Laurentian Mountains is another popular spot for family fun all year round. Hiking, horse riding, biking and golfing are just some of the activities that you can enjoy here on a warm summer day.
There are also historic buildings and churches within the city that anyone interested in history and architecture should be sure to see during their stay in the city, such as the Notre-Dame de Montreal Basilica, the Notre Dame du Bon Secours, and the entire city of old Montreal are all worth taking the time to see. Montreal offers old world charm, a multicultural atmosphere, and some of the most significant sites in Canadian history all within a single city.
