During the festive season shipping times are affected due to an unusually high number of packages being sent around the world to reach their destination in time for Christmas. If you’ve anything to send, be it in time for Christmas or just over this period, make sure you allow adequate time for arrival.

White & Company can provide for a local move, anywhere in the UK, Europe or to any international destination across the world.
Most companies aim to keep their service running as smoothly as possible, and try to have more drivers during this time, however there are many factors influencing shipping times as well as volume of products being shipped. More cars on the road at this time due to people not working, university goers coming home for Christmas, and relatives visiting each other, as well as the last minutes Christmas shoppers, all mean an increase in traffic making delivery to shipping ports from warehouses and distribution centres delayed.
There is sometimes a price increase to deliver within a certain amount of time as obviously people want to ensure their purchases or personal items are being delivered when they’re needed. Although this seems to be unfair around this time, the reasons for doing so could include paying the extra staff to ensure this is delivered on time, funding that extra van to deliver the goods, and using another crate to carry the goods required.
Packaging your parcels properly is especially important over the Christmas period, due to the increase number of parcels being delivered. It is possible that they are at a higher risk of damage during peak season due to high capacity. So make sure you use high quality packing materials, and protect any fragile goods as best as possible to minimise the risk of damage.
Every company will aim to deliver your packages as quickly and efficiently as possible, but when it comes to sending your goods abroad, overseas shipping times can vary so make sure you allow plenty of time if you want to deliver to another country.
