Updates and Shipping Tips from Hot Shot Delivery

More Than Just Flowers and Candy

Happy Valentine’s Day! If that sentence caught you off guard, there’s good news: It’s not too late to make your sweetheart’s day. Hot Shot is no stranger to last-minute delivery requests for Godiva chocolates, red roses and other traditional Valentine’s Day items. But why not do something a bit more unique? Here are some outside-the-box Valentine’s Day gift ideas that can still be delivered in time.

  • Not every honey has a sweet tooth. Instead of chocolates, why not send over a basket of fresh fruit from the local market?
  • Is your Valentine under the weather? Send him or her a care package of tea, chicken soup and tissues. Even these everyday items can be romantic when hand-delivered.
  • Your Valentine’s gift should be given today, but it can be enjoyed later. Surprise your special someone with a gift certificate to one of their favorite stores.
  • Add the element of surprise. Pretend you’ve totally forgotten to make plans for a Valentine’s Day dinner — then open the door for a delicious delivery from your favorite restaurant.

Hot Shot can arrange the logistics of even complex Valentine’s Day deliveries. Call 713.869.7575 from the comfort of your home or office, and avoid being in the dog house later.

It’s just one more example of how we hold ourselves to a higher standard than some of our competitors, and go the extra mile to ensure that our clients feel good about trusting us with their products, especially food and medical supplies. Whether your business is vitamins or soy sauce, tea or energy drinks, you can trust Hot Shot Delivery behind the wheel.

The Longest Delivery Ever (At Least as Far as Pizza’s Concerned)

Monday, April 30th, 2012

Some deliveries are made just for the purpose of making them. Just one of those deliveries took place between June 28th and July 1st, 2006, when Paul Fenech traveled just over 12,346 miles from Opera Pizza in Wellington New Zealand to Madrid, Spain to hand deliver a pizza.

Unless he had a heck of a warmer, we’re guessing it was cold when it got there.

We don’t usually deliver pizza because we don’t make the stuff. We also don’t send our own delivery personnel across the world. But we can get your package en route to somewhere a few thousand miles away in a matter of moments. Hot Shot’s next flight out delivery service is dependable, consistent, and most importantly, fast.

And when you need to deliver something more important than pizza, that’s important.

So the next time you need to get a pizza from Houston to New York, contact us to get it on the next flight out. Just don’t expect it to be hot when it gets there.

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!
