Public Holidays Affecting Shipping Times

Parcel2Ship allows customers to send parcels to all reaches of the world, but sometimes public holidays affect the delivery times. Currently, we are advising all customers of a delay to deliveries in countries such as Saudi Arabia, due to the public holiday marking the end of Ramadan.

Religious festivals such as these mean that depots and postal services are either closed, or open for a limited time during the day, leading to a delay that cannot be helped.

To check whether public holidays will affect your delivery, we recommend contacting Parcel2Ship’s customer service team on 0845 519 0185

How To Guide: Send a Parcel Abroad

In the past, if you wanted to send a parcel from the UK to the continent, or even to the other side of the world, it wasn’t cheap or easy.
You would need to take the parcel, no matter how heavy, to your local Post Office, and pay whatever they charge.

Nowadays though, with the growth of e-commerce and the increasing on-line presence of parcel resellers like Parcel2Ship, customers can shop around for the best prices, pick their preferred courier, and they can choose to have their parcels collected from their homes or work addresses or drop their parcel off at the local courier depot, and have their parcel delivered to almost anywhere in the world.
