High on the northern coast of Spain sits the city of Bilbao - largest settlement in the Basque country. For once, the history is quite precise: Bilbao was founded as a village on July 15 1300 by Don Diego Lopez de Haro, Lord of Biscay. The name itself, however, has produced different theories. Some say it comes from ‘bel vado’, ancient Spanish for good river crossing’, others say it’s from the Basque ‘bi albo’, meaning ‘two river crossings’. Alongside the Basque, Maritime and Fine Arts museums, the city boasts the astonishing Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. Featuring flowing curves clad in shining titanium panels, the museum features permanent and visiting exhibitions of modern and contemporary art by Spanish and international artists.
Thinking of sending parcels to Bilbao? Congratulations: you’ve come to exactly the right place. Now you could be forgiven for thinking that there are any numbers of methods for making that happen, but if you want to get your parcel to Bilbao on time and in good shape, there’s really only a choice of one: a professional courier. Why? Because, unlike the sturdy old post office, a courier to Bilbao won’t be subject to unexpected delays or industrial action. So leave the postie to handle the millions of postcards flooding through the Spanish postal system and be content with your courier.
We choose this method because, as the UK’s largest online parcel delivery service, we know it’s simply the best. But for the man or woman in the street, it’s not the easiest to organise. Even the big names that we recommend, like TNT, Parcelforce and FedEx, can make life very confusing with their own particular jargon, tariffs and services. But for you, our loyal customer, we’ve rendered all that confusion redundant. We’ve delved deep into all the wealth of information out there to produce an extremely clear analysis of the plain and simple facts. We make it simplicity itself for you to choose the company you prefer to organise your parcel delivery to Bilbao - and we’re often cheaper than the company itself can achieve.
There only remains the careful wrapping of the package - which we’re sure you can handle - and a reminder that you must never try to send a parcel to Bilbao without adding the códigos postale: the Spanish postcode.
