MANCHESTER, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Parcel2Go has issued a reminder to people in the UK that keeping in touch with friends and family members living in other countries around the world doesn't need to be difficult or expensive.
“There's nothing better than receiving a package from home and we're calling on mums and dads, brothers and sisters and best friends to find out how cheap courier services from Parcel2Go are, and how simple it is to get in touch with people on the other side of the world”
The call follows the release of figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) which showed that almost 3.6 million people left the UK permanently between 2001 and 2011 – an average of almost 100 people per day. According to research, many of those were graduates going to work abroad in a range of sectors including the pharmaceutical, aerospace and engineering industries. The most likely destinations for Brits leaving the UK were Australia, the United States and Spain.
Other top destinations for British migrants included New Zealand, Germany and Canada, all of which are countries that Parcel2Go's courier partners deliver to every single day. What's more, a range of cheap international shipping services are available to book online, from express services to destinations across Europe to world economy delivery services to Havana, Melbourne and Jakarta.
According to Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go, even people who have never sent a parcel abroad before in their life will be able to get a quote online in a matter of seconds.
He said: "Our quick quote service means it is now possible for customers to get a price for a domestic or international parcel delivery service from the comfort of their own home with just a few clicks of a mouse. The ONS data has highlighted the number of people who have left the UK in recent years to start a new life abroad, but with the help of Parcel2Go there is no reason for their friends and relatives in the UK to lose touch.
"There's nothing better than receiving a package from home and we're calling on mums and dads, brothers and sisters and best friends to find out how cheap courier services from Parcel2Go are, and how simple it is to get in touch with people on the other side of the world," Richard added.
Parcel2Go's online customer service team is available now to offer support and advice to any customers who are sending a package abroad for the very first time.
