LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The UK's largest online parcel delivery company has urged parents of students to make sure they don't spend more than they need to shipping parcels to their sons and daughters.
“Everyone loves receiving a parcel and as many students will be facing living on their own for the first time, a package from home can go a long way towards making the situation a lot less daunting.”
With 300,000 teenagers having received their A-level results last month, plenty will now be making plans to start courses up and down the country. And with parents expected to start sending all kinds of packages out to freshers at universities around the UK over the coming weeks, containing everything from textbooks and reading material to gifts and reminders of home, Parcel2Go has told people not to pay over the odds to get their packages delivered.
The Bolton-based parcel specialist, which helps individuals and businesses to organise the delivery of millions of consignments every year, has a range of low-cost delivery options available online, many of which are perfect for getting important parcels out to students.
Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go, said: "Everyone loves receiving a parcel and as many students will be facing living on their own for the first time, a package from home can go a long way towards making the situation a lot less daunting.
"If a parent has an urgent item they need to get across then something like our Yodel 24 service will ensure that it arrives at its destination as soon as possible – perfect when your son or daughter needs to get hold of a textbook but has no money left after freshers' week! In addition there are plenty of other low-cost services available that will take a little longer but represent amazing value for money."
Domestic and international parcel delivery services can be organised through www.parcel2go.com within a matter of minutes thanks to the company's quick quote feature, available on the homepage. Parents need only enter details of the collection and delivery addresses and the weight and dimensions of their parcel in order to be shown a range of delivery options.
