With less than 8 weeks until Christmas, now would be a good time to start thinking about sending your gifts in advance. It is time to get organised and book a courier collection at your earliest convenience.
We always suggest sending gifts as soon as possible during the run up to the festive period; to avoid the delays and stress of whether the parcel is going to get to its destination in time. In an ideal world we would all be really well organised and get all our gifts bought, wrapped and packed ready to book in with a courier so that they arrive in plenty of time ready for the big day.
Last Christmas (December 2010) the snow and bad weather caused lots of problems and delays for many people sending and receiving gifts within the UK and internationally. The adverse weather in 2010 and the beginning of 2011 affected the lives of many including the courier companies who were unable to collect and deliver parcels because roads were closed and the transportation network hit a standstill. Couriers get really busy in the run up to Christmas and more and more people are using parcel delivery services as they are a safe way to send gifts when you are able to track and trace them on-line.
