Austin's Courier Service Limited was established in Swift Current, Saskatchewan in 1976 by Gil and Evelyn Austin and they operated it until June of 1980 when it was purchased by Scott Whitell. Scott was 19 years old and had just graduated from Grade 12. Since that time Austin’s Courier has been operated by Scott and has proudly served Southwest Saskatchewan and beyond.
Initially, staff consisted of only Scott, equipment was one cargo van and the business office was located in the basement of his parents home. His route included both pick up and delivery for Swift Current and Regina. The service remained that way for a period of three years. As the demand for services increased it was necessary to hire an additional driver to assist with deliveries.
Eventually, an office was established employing a full time secretary/bookkeeper at 777 Cheadle Street West. Changes in both business and expansion had Austin's business office move from 777 Cheadle Street West to 1881 Chaplin Street West and then to its current location at 1815 North Service Road West in 1996.
In the fall of 2012, Austin's purchased the adjacent building at 1731 North Service Road West to accommodate a mechanical shop for the Heavy Duty Journeyman Mechanics.
After 41 years in business, Austin's Courier has grown under Scott's leadership and management style. Our Company Motto, "Our Business is Picking Up", is certainly true.
Austin’s Courier Service Ltd. was nominated for the SCBEX (Swift Current Business Excellence) Awards in the categories of "Customer Service" and "Business of the Year" for the 2005 Business Year.
