Sitting snugly in northern Italy, capital of the Piedmont region, lies Turin, or, if you speak the language, Torino. Sources differ, but some say that 28 BC saw a Roman camp, Castra Taurinorum, sited here. The city has two major claims to fame. It’s the home of the Shroud of Turin, which is kept here in the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist. And it’s the home of Fiat, still an important force in worldwide car manufacturing. It was another icon however, the original Mini, which made good use of many locations in Turin, including the track on the roof of the Fiat factory, for the classic 1960s original The Italian Job.
Sending parcels to Turin is the work of mere moments as long as you stick to one hard and fast rule: don not use the Italian post office. No offence, we’re sure they’re a sterling set of men and women, but post offices tend to be subject to unnecessary delays and industrial action. It’s something we’ve come across time and again as we’ve grown to become the biggest UK online parcel delivery company, and we wouldn’t want it to happen to you. As a viable, reliable, no-nonsense alternative, we suggest to opt for perfect peace of mind and have your parcel to Turin delivered by a courier to Turin.
Using the big names - TNT, Parcelforce and FedEx - has an awful lot to recommend it. But we can’t honestly say that organising things direct is a doddle. Each company seems to pride itself on using individual jargon and different names for the same services, so it’s no easy matter to wade through all the extraneous details and make a like for like comparison. What is easy is to let someone else to all the hard work for you - and in this case, that’s us - so you can make a clear and simple choice. That’s what you get with Parcel2Go and, into the bargain, you get the benefit of our hard-fought negotiations to bring you better prices for a parcel delivery to Turin than going direct could match.
And one last thing: you can make sure your courier is extra-efficient by adding the Italian postcode to the address - it’s called the Codice di Avviamento Postale or CAP.
