Last Post for Christmas: Save the Dates!

As always, we’ve produced a comprehensive list of all the Xmas posting dates for you to stick in your calendar. For all the latest carrier and service information on last posting dates, keep an eye on Parcel2Go.com, which will be updated regularly throughout the festive period.

 

Ways to send

Both collection and drop-off courier services are available in the run up to Christmas. However, since courier networks experience an extra surge of deliveries in December, collection times can sometimes be affected.

To ensure you make the last day for Christmas post, get you parcels to the courier in plenty of time on the day. We advise selecting a drop-off service for your Christmas delivery.
