• Dancing shoes delivered

    Had a call to the office to collect and deliver 2 pairs of dancing shoes for Strictly Come Dancing's Brendon Cole and Sunetra Sarker.

    They'd had their shoes sent via an overnight courier and sadly they were lost in transit.

    So, we were happy to oblige with a swift collection to fast track their vital equipment to their dance studio.

    When you're considering whether to choose an overnight service or a same day dedicated courier, it's worth considering the consequences of what happens should your overnight parcel fail to arrive.

    High value, fragile, oversize or time critical parcels just aren't worth trusting to the overnight networks. And they form the bulk of the items we carry here at Courier Direct.
