From where do you need a parcel collected?
Whether you’re posting an item on an ad hoc basis, or need a more permanent solution, a courier service can help.
A courier offers a very flexible service to get your parcels from A to B.
They can perform a collection from any address that you specify (within reason!) which means your parcel could be collected from your place of work or your office meaning you do not have to endure the inconvenience of popping out to get your parcel posted.
In addition, a courier will be able to offer reliability and traceability.
When you parcel is collected, a scannable barcode will be attached. As a result you will be able to track the progress of your parcel as it moves through the network. The number of tracks will depend on the courier you choose but you’re likely to see a scan at collection, and delivery and in addition you may get a scan when the parcel has arrived at the delivery depot, the central sorting hub or even when it has been placed on a vehicle.
Finally the courier provider can offer you choice and a competitive price which if you are posting for business could prove to be very important.
Most of the big brand couriers like Parcelforce Worldwide, City Link, Yodel and DHL offer lots of variety, which means you should be able to find a courier product to suit your budget and your delivery time window.
What’s more, because you can now book your courier collection online, you can arrange all of this without leaving your desk!
