DropBox2Go Delivery Times – How long does courier delivery take?

We have a huge number of people asking ‘how long does it take for a parcel to be sent? There are so many variables including service and destination, but when you use our parcel delivery comparison site, this is one of the things we highlight in the results, so you can pick a courier who will deliver your parcel in the time frame you need.

UK Courier Delivery Times

When you book with DropBox2Go, most of UK domestic parcels will be delivered the day after collection – as long as the courier service you’ve ordered is ‘Next Day’. All of our postage rates are discounted, but delivery times are still premium the same as you would get booking direct.

The courier delivery times are estimated and provided directly to us by the couriers who provide the actual delivery service. Where delivery takes longer such as 1-2 day service, you can check this on the quote engine results.

You can compare not only delivery times but also courier prices when you get a delivery quote. If you need a quicker courier service you can filter the results using the tabs at the top of the results page or to whichever options suit your requirements.

International shipping times

Where it gets more complicated, is when it comes to international parcel delivery. We advise an estimated guide of expected shipping times during the quote process which should give you a quick glance at the length of time it typically takes for a packet to be delivered overseas.

Many European destinations will have a quick delivery transit time given their relative proximity to the UK. As well as the traditional air courier services there will be the option to send your parcel by road that may be cheaper. As you would expect, it is likely to take longer – perhaps a day or two.

Major cities have quicker expected delivery times than more remote locations. Cities generally have excellent transport links so parcel delivery to urban areas is likely to occur more quickly than a parcel going to a more rural location.

To get an overview of the quickest international shipping times we would expect we have collated destinations we ship to here –

  • Africa
  • Asia
  • Caribbean
  • Europe
  • North America
  • Middle East
  • Oceania
  • South America

Other FAQs

How long does courier delivery take to more isolated UK communities?

Some outlying areas of Scotland may, occasionally, take another day given weather conditions and other restrictions such as the logistics of reaching these more rural locations. These places include but are not limited to Durness, Tongue, Thurso, Wick, Helmsdale, Cromarty, Fraserburgh and Ullapool.

While other islands such as the Isles of Scilly or the Isle of Wight may take longer than a mainland delivery too.

We offer specific rates to the Channel Islands to Jersey and Guernsey. The service times provided are given to us by the carrier themselves, as an estimation of delivery time based on their services.

What time will my parcel be delivered?

Couriers in the main make deliveries between 8 am and 6 pm on weekdays, unless you have booked a Priority or Timed service. The couriers also deliver on weekdays, unless you have booked a weekend delivery service.

You can provide the recipient with the tracking number so they can follow the parcel until it is delivered. Please also provide the correct contact information for the recipient to avoid any issues.
