Why don't you get parcel deliveries on a Sunday?
Whilst almost all parcel delivery companies delivery on a Saturday not many delivery on a Sunday. However, in 2020 Sunday has become as normal a trading day as any, however it abides by shorter trading times and there is no official Royal Mail postal service on a Sunday. Whilst almost all parcel delivery companies
deliver on a Saturday not many deliver on a Sunday. For many, the weekend may be the only time you’ll be home to take delivery of a parcel. If you’re sending a parcel, we offer a Saturday delivery service
which can be selected when making your booking. If you want to receive a parcel delivery at the weekend, make sure you specify if you want a Saturday or Sunday delivery when making your purchases, if this option is available to you.
