You can start your research right here on the interenet my friend. Just go do a google search on your topic, which in this case is courier and see the results it pulls, better still, put qoutation marks around it and if it's Tampa Bay you will only want to opereate in, which maybe wise to beging with, inculde that in your search term so it looks something like "courier services in Tampa Bay". You will onviously find there are a lot of these kind of services in your area which is good for it simply means there is demand for the service you would like to provide.

Check what other companies are doing and their pricing and all, you even be able to find someone who can coach you in that area, or just phone them up as a customer and ask the questions you wold want to know.

If you already have a vehicle and a cell phone, there’s a good chance you can get your business up and running for less than $500.

One of the greatest advantages of starting a home-based courier business is the little investment needed to begin. Virtually all you need is a reliable vehicle and a cell phone.

A courier service’s clients are primarily other businesses, which means the majority of clients employ couriers between the hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

If you are working during these times, you will need to fill the niche of providing after hours delivery services. This can be a lucrative part of the market, but your potential client base may be smaller to begin with.
