PRLog - Dec. 12, 2012 - UK Mail, the Midlands based parcels and logistics company, is running a festive competition with its consumer brand, ipostparcels.com, offering three lucky winners £50 worth of Love to Shop vouchers.
ipostparcels.com wants to help people avoid seasonal problems during the festive rush. To launch the competition, the logistics company has given its Birmingham and Slough head office vans a Christmas makeover.
UK Mail recognises that the festive period can spark a rush of customers trying to get their parcels sent out on time. To alleviate the festive stress, ipostparcels.com offers next day collection and delivery through a streamlined service, suiting customer’s needs. The online user-friendly service allows customers to utilise its booking form, avoiding the irritation of facing large queues at the post office.
Guy Buswell, CEO at UK Mail said, “We’ve given our delivery vans a makeover for Christmas to engage with our customers and get into the festive spirit. Christmas is a busy time but also a joyous occasion, which we all tend to forget about amidst the Christmas rush. The vans are a great reminder of the fun Christmas brings and also gives people a chance to win some vouchers which will come in handy during this time of the year”
To be in with a chance of winning Parcel Pete’s festive treat, anyone who spots the Christmas vans should share their sightings on their social networking sites. The firm wants to create a buzz on social media sites through sharing content, as it enhances ipostparcels.com’
UK Mail is also urging participants to take advantage of their special offer and use the voucher code VAN10 when placing an order between 10/12/12 and 19/12/12. This means a 10% discount on the parcel delivery service.
As and when the vans are spotted, avid social media users can retweet the competition posts on Twitter @ipostparcels and share Christmas posts on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/
