7 Reasons Santa Claus is like Hot Shot Delivery

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

1. Although unknown to most, Santa Claus’ suit was inspired by ‘Hot Shot Red & white’. With delivery so reliable, Santa felt compelled to have the same trusted reputation, so he modeled his signature wardrobe after Hot Shot Delivery!

2. Both Hot Shot and Santa Claus use the latest & greatest in tracking technology. Santa was so impressed by Hot Shot’s state-of-the-art tracker that he started using a system modeled after it. Hot Shot’s tracking system lets customers know exactly where their packages are at all times, and Santa figured he could make use of this himself.

3. Hot Shot and Santa both deliver joy during the holiday season! From presents, to treats and sweets, only Hot Shot and Santa can quickly deliver the goods spreading holiday cheer from door to door (or chimney to chimney).

4. With hundreds of staff and delivery drivers, Hot Shot is well-equipped with plenty of man power to ensure that everyone gets their holiday merriment. When Santa noticed how efficient Hot Shot’s staff was, he promptly hired elves and trained them to transport and process items, just like the Hot Shot team.

5. Hot Shot Delivery has a fleet of quick & reliable transportation to get packages delivered as quickly as possible. Santa knew he needed to be as quick as the Hot Shot Delivery team, so he invested in a sleigh and his reindeer. Although not as fancy as a Hot Shot Delivery vehicle, it would just have to do.

6. Everyone knows that Santa works 24/7 in order to make it all the way around the world at all the right times to get kids around the world their presents on time. Hot Shot has deliveries to make to kids, adults and well, everyone! So Hot Shot works around the clock, 24/7 to make sure every package is in the right hands on time, no matter how big or small.

7. Kris Kringle, Papa Noel, St. Nick…all very different names, but all associated to the one and only Santa Claus. Just like Hot Shot’s staff are known as many different things; courier, messenger, delivery driver…all have one purpose, and that’s to satisfy customers during this holiday season!

May this holiday season be filled with warmth, laughter and love. From our family to yours, happy holidays!

The Hot Shot Delivery Family


Delivering to Houston is Sweet as Pie!

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Happy Thanksgiving from our family at Hot Shot Delivery to you and yours! As the Holiday Season fast approaches, we find ourselves rushing around, often times more so than usual. Here at our fine Houston Courier Service, rushing around is what we do for a living. Hot Shot Delivery does those pesky little errands so you don’t have to. When we’re not delivering life saving medical equipment or important legal documents, you might find one of our professional uniformed couriers delivering a lunch for an office party, or even picking up and delivering your newest outfit from your finest Galleria department store.

Some of our favorite Thanksgiving memories are a little more personal. At Hot Shot Delivery, Inc. we are truly a family. We have a lot of pride in what we do and we take care of who we work with, because they take care of our customers. The inspiration for this week’s blog came from the spirit of Thanksgiving and a note our Controller, Phil, sent me about “how thankful he is for the wonderful work and assistance that the Hot Shot Delivery customer service offer.” It was also sparked by our Office Manager, Amanda, recently recalling coming into our office when the air was full of the aroma of pumpkin pies. That brought me back to one of my favorite Thanksgiving memories.

 

From all of us at Hot Shot Delivery, thank you for your trust and support. As our friend, customer, or prospective customer, we sincerely appreciate you. Please remember that there are many that do not have anyone to share this holiday with, so open your heart, your home, or if you are able, your wallet. Or, simply give your smile or time. Also be sure to also thank a soldier, their family, and the first responders for keeping us all safe.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Hot Shot Delivery!

 


Delivering Awareness In October

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Pink is everywhere and for good reason: October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Following behind skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among U.S. Women. Breast cancer makes up for 1 in 4 cases of cancer found in women. 70-80% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer. These occur due to genetic abnormalities that happen as a result of the aging process and life in general, rather than inherited mutations.

The month of October is a reminder that breast cancer awareness is much needed. Great progress has been made in research in the area of breast cancer. According to breastcancer.org, as of 2010, there were more than 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. I am proud and honored to know a few of these many survivors and will continue to support the awareness of this worthwhile cause.

Hot Shot Delivery is blessed to sit in the heart of one of the largest medical cities in the U.S. Our location has given us the opportunity to take part in all sorts of medical related deliveries. For example, we have the opportunity daily to deliver medical genetic samples that are used by physicians to determine the health of the unborn, the severity of a disease, or to determine if an organ donor is a proper match. This is a responsibly that we do not take lightly.

Today, as we have always done, we “deliver Houston” and make sure that each and every one of our deliveries gets handled with the respect and attention it deserves. After all, we are not just delivering an envelope, a box, or a sample. Sometimes, we are delivering a life!

 


Happy 4th of July!

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

Hot Shot Delivery and all of our employees, contractors and family hope that you had a very happy and healthy 4th of July. We hope that you were able to beat the heat as you enjoyed this wonderful holiday weekend.  Although I was out of town spending some vacation time with my great family, many of our team spent the 4th at Houston’s annual Freedom Over Texas event.

Hot Shot Delivery had the pleasure of delivering several of the HD Video Cameras and equipment that are used by the media outlets that covered this extraordinary patriotic celebration. And that’s only one example of the amazing things that Hot Shot has the opportunity to deliver. Many people may think that a courier/delivery company only delivers boxes, envelopes and papers. Don’t get us wrong, we do tons of work for the business sector and have deliveries all day every day that include envelopes, boxes and papers. But, we also provide medical delivery services, delivering lifesaving medical devices like heart valves, pacemakers, pharmaceuticals, hospital monitors and much more. We even deliver Live Lobsters! There really is no limit to our delivery capabilities.

As we settle in to this hot and very dry summer, be sure to stay cool, hydrate and be thankful for the freedom that we have as Americans. God Bless America and Our Soldiers.
