Emissions are harmful to the environment. We have performed research and developed plans into how we can limit our vehicle emission while still maintaining an effective process. We are conscious when purchasing vehicles. Our vans are 20% more fuel efficient than other vans of similar size.
We are grateful to have the opportunity to make people smile. First Choice Couriers are beyond happy to say we have aligned ourselves with Cancer Council’s Daffodil Day.
