UK parcel delivery specialist Parcel2Go has urged shoppers not to put their Christmas packages at risk by either sending them off with unreliable delivery firms or failing to wrap them properly.
Major online retailers eBay and Amazon have both announced their predictions for the busiest Christmas shopping day of the year (Sunday December 4 and Monday December 5 respectively), when hordes of people across the UK will go online to kick-start the festive buying spree. With many millions of Christmas parcels due to be shipped to addresses within the UK and overseas in the coming weeks, Parcel2Go has reminded British consumers to do everything possible to make sure their presents stay safe in transit.
It's often the case that people who don't normally have a need to send parcels during the year suddenly find themselves at Christmas with a stack of presents that need to be shipped off to relatives in time for December 25. Unfortunately it is these consumers that can find themselves in a mess if they choose to send gifts off with unreliable parcel couriers or perhaps fail to wrap their goods well enough.
Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go, has urged all shoppers to take the correct steps to ensure their packages arrive on time and in the best condition this Christmas.
He said: "It's easy to see how people who are unused to organising parcel delivery services with parcel couriers can get caught out at this time of year. There is always a lot going on and sending off parcels might seem a chore if it's something you only do once a year.
"We're calling on people to just take a minute to think about how awful it would be if the presents they've spent money on and time choosing didn't arrive. Every Christmas, Parcel2Go helps many thousands of people to get their presents couriered to addresses in the UK and abroad safely. Our message is that it is certainly worth spending a few minutes finding a reliable courier and wrapping a parcel securely in order to avoid a nightmare before Christmas."
Parcel2Go's customers can have complete peace of mind by using the firm's online parcel tracking feature to keep an eye on their domestic and international parcels and Christmas presents as they make their way to their destination.
