If you like online shopping, you probably order from your favorite stores throughout the week.
And for many who work outside the home, a weekend delivery date is ideal to make sure you’re inside.
But can your package arrive on a Sunday, which is traditionally considered a ‘day of rest’, as well as on a day when personal shops have shorter opening hours?
Of course each parcel company will have their own policies, but this is what Royal Mail, Amazon and Evri (formerly Hermes) do.
Does Royal Mail deliver on Sundays?
Yes, Royal Mail sometimes delivers scheduled parcels on Sundays.
On its website, the company says: “We aim to make one delivery each day, Monday through Saturday.
“We also do a number of scheduled parcel deliveries on Sundays, including evening deliveries.
‘Normally we do not deliver on national and local holidays.’
Don’t expect anything to arrive on a Sunday unless it’s explicitly stated.
Does Amazon deliver on Sundays?
Amazon packages can indeed arrive on Sundays.
The online retailer notes on its website that “packages can be delivered to residential addresses on Sundays” for some of its delivery options.
According to Amazon, these are the free standard delivery, one day delivery, and premium and priority delivery options.
Shoppers can also choose same day delivery and scheduled delivery (for large items), which allows you to choose an available day and time slot for your item to arrive.
When you order something from Amazon, your delivery options are usually displayed – and clearly the day it should arrive.
Does Evri deliver on Sundays?
Yes, it seems that Evri delivers on Sundays.
In February, the company announced its first Sunday delivery service.
And the Evri website confirms that a Weekend Courier Delivery service is available and notes: ‘Our network of couriers operate seven days a week – so if you expect a weekend delivery, they’ll bring it to your door.’
Evri’s lockers are also available on Sundays – which are available 24/7 and allow you to pick up a package or return unwanted items without too much hassle.
Many Evri parcelshops are also open seven days a week.
