Are there same day couriers who deliver on Bank Holidays?



There’s nothing better than a Bank Holiday! For many people across the United Kingdom, Bank Holidays are a day off, to relax and hopefully enjoy some sunshine. For many others, however, a Bank Holiday is another working day – which can prove tricky given that many businesses shut up shop. May Bank Holidays, August Bank Holidays, Easter and Christmas are all examples of days when plenty of commercial businesses, including couriers, close in accordance with the national holiday.

This can prove disastrous for many people and industries working in sectors that must continue on Bank Holidays – such as hospitality, healthcare and many others. It is imperative for lots of people to ensure they have uninterrupted access to their supply chain on these days of the year – particularly those who work in cutting-edge scientific laboratories, medical centres like hospitals, and many other places. Lots of couriers are simply unable to provide this service due to a lack of resources – which is why Speedy Freight delivers. 


At Speedy Freight, we know that your business may not run 9-5 like so many others, which is why we provide same day weekend deliveries and Bank Holiday deliveries no matter what, and no matter where. It is important to be able to access your supply chain at any time of the day, so we undertake consignments 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 


Speedy Freight has access to over 4,000 vehicles and over 60 branches – which makes us perfect couriers no matter where you are in the country. We’re pleased to be able to collect within one hour of your booking (with our same day option) or the very next morning with our next day courier service. We’ll let you know when we’re on our way, and head straight from your collection point to your delivery point (no driver swapping involved!)


Using a dedicated courier vehicle for your consignment also means that we won’t ever co-load your goods. This helps to prevent any confusion or damage to your consignment, as well as avoiding unnecessary delays caused by stopping off at other people’s destinations on your journey. Speedy Freight prides itself on being a responsive and reliable same day courier, so you can trust us to be able to undertake the task of moving your item with the utmost care and attention. If you need to track your delivery, we offer Status Tracking to let you know where your driver is and where your consignment is, which operates during any date you need. 


If you’d like to organise any same day collections or deliveries on a Bank Holiday, simply get in touch with your local branch. You can find your nearest office in our network of Speedy Freight branches with this branch locator (or alternatively give us a ring if you’re struggling to find your closest option!).
