Ask anyone in Canada what splendor sine occusu means and a fair proportion of them should be able to tell you that it means ‘splendour without diminishment’ - and it’s the motto of British Columbia, a reference to the natural wonders to be found here in Canada’s westernmost province. Queen Victoria chose the name, linking it to the territory drained by the Columbia River. Indeed, a good half of the bright and colourful flag of British Columbia is taken up by the Union Flag. Victoria is the BC capital but Vancouver, Canada’s third-largest metropolitan area, is bigger by far with around two million of the province’s estimated 4.5 million residents.
Sending parcels to British Columbia couldn’t be simpler, really, once you know the one vital secret to the successful transportation of your precious cargo several thousands miles across the Atlantic. It’s a secret that only years of dedicated effort to become the UK’s biggest online parcel delivery company can reveal - unless, of course, you’re a customer of Parcel2Go, in which case you can have it for nothing. And here it is: don’t send a parcel to British Columbia with the post office - despatch a courier to British Columbia instead. That way, there’s less chance of the journey being interrupted by industrial action or unexpected delays.
When it’s a question of ‘which courier’, we think bigger is better - so we stand by the worldwide names like TNT, Parcelforce or FedEx. Taking things from A to B is something they excel at, but communication isn’t their strong point. Try to work your way through the maze of different tariffs and terminology and you’ll be a patient individual indeed if you cans tick with it long enough to arrive at a meaningful comparison. We, however, have done all the hard work for you, so you’ll find it a breeze here to pick the service and the tariff that you need for your parcel delivery to British Columbia. And you should be pleasantly surprised by the prices, which we can bring in lower than going direct would get you.
Anything else to remember? Two things. Canada, like all countries, takes a dim view of certain items being brought into the country, so if you’re in any doubt before you send a parcel to British Columbia, double-check. And, just like over here, don’t forget the postcode - which, just like most of them over here, is six characters long.
