In the quarter of a century that weâ€™ve spent delivering goods all over the world weâ€™ve built a reputation thatâ€™s second to none for expertise, security and meeting the exacting demands of our many customers. Sometimes these demands will be for help with packaging, extra protection for goods or, in the case of corporate customers, one-to-one dedicated support. Often, however, what our customers require most from their Nice shipping is the promise that it will be there as quickly as possible.
The city of Nice, thanks to its position on the Mediterranean coast, is the second most visited city in the whole of France, attracting tourists from around the world with its mixture of culture, beach life and a reputation for being a playground of the rich and famous. The city has links to the UK in the form of the famous Promenade des Anglais or â€˜Promenade of the Englishâ€™, which was built at the instigation of English tourists in the 1800s and provides a pleasant walk along the edge of the crystal clear Mediterranean sea.
It may be that you work for a business that has links to the tourist industry and thatâ€™s why you need to send an urgent package delivery to Nice. On the other hand, your Nice shipping may be of a personal nature â€“ a keepsake sent to a loved one whoâ€™s retired to pursue their dream of following in the footsteps of Nice-based artists like Marc Chagall and Henri Matisse, or a birthday present for a son or daughter whoâ€™s opted to spend their birthday backpacking around the South of France. Whatever the reason for your package delivery to Nice, the chances are youâ€™ll welcome the option of choosing next-day delivery, which we make available not just for Nice shipping but also for any parcel delivery to Strasbourg, shipping to Nantes or, indeed, to anywhere else in Europe, North America or Canada.
Next Day Delivery at low, low prices
Such is our relationship with the couriers we use that weâ€™ve negotiated deals with them they donâ€™t offer anywhere else â€“ the kind of prices that will make you wonder why you ever opted for slower mail services.
Of course, if speed is a secondary consideration to budget we can also offer our Economy service to most destinations. The same quality of service from our carriers, the same dedication and care, but just at a slightly lower pace, and of course often at a far lower cost.
And the good news doesnâ€™t stop there â€“ arranging a parcel delivery to Nice doesnâ€™t involve filling in long, difficult forms or wading through mountains of paperwork; with RapidParcel.com the whole process of booking your package delivery to Nice can be completed in minutes. If youâ€™re out and about you can even use our innovative mobile-optimised website (Mobisite) to book your shipment. Nice shipping can be sorted out in six simple steps â€“ the only work you really have to do is choose which of the household names amongst our couriers you wish to use, and precisely which of the fantastic deals theyâ€™re offering is the one that suits you best. The rest we see as our job, and itâ€™s one we do to the very highest standard each and every time.
