So, make the best use of this when you want to associate with them.

3) Give priority to email over the phone while contacting your shipping service provider.

Hence, if you don’t find your service provider number on the website or if they have not provided you any contact number to connect with them, at that point you should try to drop an email first.

So, make sure you are reaching out to your service provider within the working hours of the company. If in case, you are raising any queries post working hours or on holidays, then please don’t expect any reply promptly from your service provider. 
Sometimes a customer wants a solution to their problem in midnight and they will try to call or drop an email and expects a reply from the service provider immediately. If they don’t get a reply immediately, the customer will start writing a negative review, start complaining, abusing the company. In short, they will try all the hack to ruin the company name. 

Don’ts :

Do not use social media to discuss your queries.
Social media is not a platform to discuss your queries when you are already a customer. When you are visiting any business website for the first time and you are not ready to comprehend the business completely then you may write your inquiries on social networking sites. Also, you should visit companies social media pages to accumulate more information on product/services, to view the feedback given by people. You can also follow that particular company to know updates about business, newly launch services, offers, etc.

Final Saying: Regardless of the type of queries you have, every service provider has its help desk available for its consumers or website visitors. All you have to do is get in touch with the right professionals or write a proper email stating the problem to garner the solution to your problems or queries without any hassle.
