Don't get caught out when sending parcels to the relies Down Under, says Parcel2Go
May 15, 2012 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) Online parcel delivery specialist Parcel2Go has reminded anyone planning on sending parcels to relatives or friends living in Australia that shipping goods with a reliable courier company is essential if they want to ensure their package will arrive in one piece.
Australia and New Zealand have become massively popular as destinations to relocate to with Brits of all ages. A survey conducted by research firm YouGov last month found that Australia was the number one destination for Brits considering a move abroad, with the United States and Canada taking second and third place respectively. More than two-fifths (42 per cent) of the 1,650 UK adults polled said they would "seriously consider" leaving Britain, while 6 per cent of respondents said they were actively making plans to leave the country.
With an increasing number of people looking to stay in contact with friends and relatives outside the UK, Parcel2Go's marketing director Richard Mercer has highlighted the importance of using a reliable courier when shipping abroad, and also checking that parcels are safely and securely wrapped before they're sent off.
He said: "With the UK officially back in recession and what seems like more tough times ahead for people in the UK, it is no surprise that the prospect of a move Down Under seems particularly appealing. We just want to remind people that know someone who has taken the plunge and relocated, to take every care to ensure their overseas packages get to Australia safe and sound.
"Using one of the cheap international delivery services available through Parcel2Go makes sense for anyone looking for speed, reliability and value for money. People must also do everything they can to wrap their packages properly and prepare them for a journey of 10,000 miles or so."
