As a company working with Riva South as our courier has been faultless from the beginning. Alice came out and visited provided us with everything we needed. Communicates daily to ensure we are happy going forward and to let us know driver arrival times. Drivers are polite and helpful upon collection of pallets. Deliveries are being made with ease in a timely manner. Easily the best courier company we have dealt with, based on the level of service in the office and deliveries.

Started using Riva as they were highly recommended by a contact on LinkedIn. Alice and her team are amazing. Email them pallet details and it seamlessly gets collected and delivered. Here is to many more deliveries.

I had the pleasure of working closely with the Team at Riva South and all I can say is that they were truly awesome! The delivery was technically demanding in terms of required paperwork and the advice and support with which I was provided was invaluable. They took a headache from me and due to the technical expertise within the business, they were able to fulfil all my contractual requirements with our client. I cannot recommend Riva South highly enough and would urge you to use them should the need arise. Thanks again guys. Your help, advice, and service is outstanding!
