Last posting dates

To ensure your parcels reach their destination and loved ones on time, we advise sending your goods in plenty of time. During the busy holiday season, courier networks see a large increase in parcel volume which can sometimes affect transit times.

In order to assist with the additional volume of parcels our couriers will be putting on additional drivers and will be working longer days, collection may therefore take place outside of the guided times of 8am-6pm.

We highly recommend using a drop off service where possible. We all know Christmas is the busiest time of year for anyone, and waiting in all day for the courier can cause inconvienence. By choosing a drop off service you can drop your goods off when is convenient for you, and they are also slightly cheaper than collection services, saving you both time and money.

Please be advised that same day collections are not avaliable for Parcelforce. However, you can still book a Parcelforce drop off service to drop off on the same day.

The following dates are for guidance only and are not guaranteed, we therefore recommend sending your goods a few days before the below recommended times below.
