  • The services offered by AMS Couriers are superior to services offered by other courier services in Anchorage to our busy law firm in these respects: (1) online order placement, tracking and confirmation by email, (2) cost of delivery provided at the time of order, and (3) extremely easy invoicing, even going the extra step of providing an itemized list of all deliveries in Excel format for our in-house manipulation. On top of these three streamlined approaches to business, their delivery services are extremely accurate and timely. Can’t ask for much more from a courier service!

  • Timely, high quality service—We can always count on you.

  • I have been working as a legal assistant in Anchorage for over 30 years and have been using Anchorage Messenger Service for over 15 years. Before the widespread use of email, our office frequently used AMS to make anywhere from 2 to 15 deliveries per day, including many rush deliveries. AMS was quick to adapt to our needs by having couriers immediately available to us and by carrying out our specific instructions to the "T." Since AMS went online it has been even easier to communicate our courier needs and to be able to check on the status of each order. And when the computer just won't do, AMS is always quick to answer the phone. I wouldn't use any other courier. They are fast and they get the job done right.
