With the Christmas shopping days rapidly counting down, it’s time to put your plans into place to ensure the people who live far from you still receive their gifts on time.
The good news is that thousands of courier drivers across the country are working flat out at this time of year to ensure parcels are delivered.
And if you need a courier’s help to get your presents into the right hands on the big day, here’s what you need to do:
Step 1: Check last collection days
First up, make sure you’re clear on the cut off times for booking collections to ensure delivery in time for Christmas. Whilst it’s true that you still have time to make plans, it’s worth checking a little in advance. After all, there’s nothing quite like a deadline to get you motivated (and your Christmas shopping finalised).
Step 2: Book a collection
Next, book a collection with your preferred courier. There are a couple of ways you can do this. You can either go to the courier direct. Alternatively, book through a parcel booking agent (such as collectmyparcel.com). The advantage you get with the latter is you may save money. You see, parcel booking agents collect on behalf of LOTS of customers. As a result, we get a bulk buy discount and can pass some of those savings onto you.
Step 3: Prepare your parcel
Finally, make sure your parcel is ready to go. Just wrap it securely and address it properly and make sure everything is good for when your courier driver arrives. Because your parcels will be collected from the address that you specify, you don’t even need to leave your house. Instead, put your feet up and crack on with celebrating the festivities.
