A general note, will all companies offer weekend courier service?
Even though many people find it the most convenient delivery option, not all courier companies offer courier services that work on Saturday or Sunday.
Some courier companies will offer you a weekend courier service and collect the parcel on a Saturday. Still, they might not allow you to collect it on a Sunday. Weekend deliveries or parcel collections usually depend on the type of service you choose, the courier company and the country.
Similarly, as with the collection, the Saturday or Sunday courier delivery services depend on the company, the destination and the type of parcel you are sending. In most cases, the courier will collect the parcel midweek to deliver it during the weekend. Since courier companies are working with a particular schedule, you would have to book the weekend courier service sooner and not on the same day. Book it at least one or two days before the collection so you will get a confirmation before the weekend.
During peak seasons, when the courier companies need to deal with a large number of shipments, delivery on Sunday or Sunday may be available but at the courier company’s discretion.
