Surprisingly, there is a UK company, www.worldwide-parcelservices.co.uk who claim that they can send a package over 25kg from the UK to Spain for even less than Citibox can. Hats off to these guys, but they are an internet-only company who do not answer their email and not a friendly local office that you can visit. Use them if you dare but please post feedback as to whether they are reliable as I have no knowledge of them other than their web-site.
A Spanish company called www.ukshoppinginspain.com will sting you for €45 for small parcel that would cost you €5 with Citibox; Parcel Link and even Parcelforce, all of whose prices are out of contention. The whole point of the internet is to obtain the best prices and they are shown here.
We all need to get maximum value nowadays with the Credit Crunch or “Crisis” as it is called in Spain. Those that are prepared to acknowledge where their strengths and weaknesses lie are those that you can trust so I expect a large increase in Christmas traffic for Citibox and, maybe, for Worldwide Parcel Services too!
Citibox will be running a Christmas promotion for those wanting to send gifts back to the UK – send four parcels and your least expensive goes free so that will make Citibox by far the best value way to send your presents. Please keep checking with the website or your local Citibox office as this promotion will start in November.
