When you send a parcel locally within New Zealand, it’s often easy to forget you need to follow the same procedures that you would when sending something overseas. Even when you’re just sending packages around New Zealand, it’s still key to make sure that they’re just as secure and protected as a package for an international courier would be.

Parcelport advise that wrapping anything fragile with cushioning material such as bubble wrap should be standard practice, and wrapping individual items separately is also important. Once these items are placed in the right-sized box or container, you’ll still need to make sure they don’t move while being couriered.

They also advise that the time of the year is important when sending packages locally, and that you can get away with sending things a day or two before it needs to be there any time of the year. Unfortunately, this is a surefire way to guarantee your deliveries are late in busy periods such as Christmas! It’s important to check courier cutoff dates in busy times, and make sure that you book your pickup as early as possible to make sure it arrives on time.

As those living in the country will know, rural delivery can take, as some areas won’t be serviced every day. If you’re concerned about this, you’ll need to find out the relevant information for courier processes, such as rural delivery days at a local office near your package’s destination, to make sure you or your business can get your package there on time.
