A gentle reminder that Father’s Day is just around the corner, so if you haven’t already organised that perfect pressie now’s the time to get your thinking cap on! With just two weeks left to find the right gift, time’s running out.
Regardless of where you buy your gift, online or off, if you live a distance from your Dad then it’ll still need to be delivered. Parcel delivery services have a range of different services for you to choose from, allowing you to spend less on the delivery and more on the gift. Just be warned, cheaper services usually mean longer delivery times.
If budget really is an issue this Father’s Day, be sure to organise your parcel delivery as soon as possible. Services that take advantage of the empty delivery vans on their return journeys back to the depot are amongst the cheapest parcel delivery services available, but your parcel will be shipped when the van is heading back on your route and not before so there can be a delay.
Budget services that can take a couple of days or more to deliver your item are also a good bet, even if you need to send your parcel internationally. Although if you are sending abroad, remember to ensure the item(s) you’re sending is compliant with the dangerous and illegal goods list for the destination country and has sufficient insurance and packaging to cover any knocks or drops.
Cheaper services often won’t let you specify collection and delivery times, meaning you’ll have to stay in all day to wait for collection. Of course, if you’ve got a friendly neighbour or relative who are usually at home that don’t mind taking on the task for you you can always arrange collection from their address instead.
