When you are thinking about using our parcel delivery service, you might be wondering how long it takes to pickup and drop-off the parcel. The good news is that our postal courier service is quick and easy to book so you don’t need to worry about anything. Even though the process is straightforward, we thought we’d tell you a bit more about how it works below.
How Do I Book It?
When Can It Be Picked Up?
Just like many other parcel delivery companies, our pickup times are between Monday and Friday 9am to 6pm. Typically, you will need to select a day that you want your international parcel delivery to be collected. The courier will come on that day as planned unless there are circumstances that prevent this from happening. If this is the case, you will be informed in advance so don’t worry.
How Long Will It Take?
At Sendparcelnow.com, we offer two parcel services with different estimated delivery times: standard or express. Delivery times also depend on the type of shipment: 1-2 working days if national (UK-Uk) 3 - 4 working days if international (UK-Europe and vice versa).
If you choose our standard package, it will take slightly longer than our express service. Typically, it will take between 1 and 5 days for your parcel to get from the collection point to the delivery address. If the location it is being delivered to is slightly out of the way, there could be some delays.
Where Can It Be Picked Up?
The great news is that we can pick your parcel up from many different kinds of locations. Whether you are sending a parcel, a pallet or an envelope from your campus or private home – we can get it to where it needs to be. We can also arrange pickups from hotels, B&Bs, residences and shops. This is perfect for those who want to ship luggages.
We should note that we can’t pickup from PO boxes. We’ll need you to let us know the collection location so that we can make sure pickup is possible.
