ParcelHero warns that Christmas order deadlines are approaching

ParcelHero warns that Christmas order deadlines are approaching

The home delivery expert ParcelHero says some stores’ Christmas order deadlines are as early as 16th December.


Home delivery specialist ParcelHero has updated its Christmas deadline tool, revealing the final order dates for all the UK’s favourite stores; and it’s warning shoppers will need to get on their bikes to book final online orders, as stores such as Evans Cycles’ final order deadline for Christmas delivery is 16th December.

ParcelHero’s Head of Consumer Research, David Jinks MILT, said, "Many shoppers do like to leave it as late as possible to order online; perhaps in the hope of last-minute bargains, or just because of good old-fashioned procrastination. Whatever the reason, they should not leave it too long as a number of stores’ deadlines are as early as Monday 16th. This is particularly the case if they specialise in heavier items such as cycles or furniture. In contrast some other retailers, such as Amazon and Net-a-Porter, are actually offering Christmas Eve same-day ordering. It will pay shoppers to look up the final dates for the store they have in mind."

"Retailers’ deadlines are rapidly coming upon us, and we really don’t recommend ordering too late. Last year we Brits spent £133bn online at Xmas and an astonishing 880 million parcels were delivered before the big day. With the parcel network that busy it’s safer to place your orders in good time. And, don’t forget, our last recommended date for sending a parcel by courier in the UK is 20th December to ensure its safe arrival," David adds.
