As everybody has seen on TV or experienced over the last few years, the risk of bad weather and the ever-increasing demand puts pressure on all courier networks. This leads to inevitable disruption in service levels so in order to avoid disappointment we recommend booking as early as possible. When booking a drop off service, please consider that it may be the next working day after you have dropped off a parcel before the courier will collect the parcel from the drop off location.
