Why do couriers not deliver on Sundays?

Found 11th Mar 2012
I ordered something yesterday from amazon next day delivery but its not going to come until Monday - quite frustrating.

because everyone likes a day off do they not?
While your sitting in on your day off waiting for a courier to arrive that wont. Why don't you ask why your not working today?
Holdover from no-one working on a Sunday but now probably so they have a definite day off in line with the regular post.
They just seem to deliver on a Sunday at Christmas
Sunday is Gods day ....

You're a clown.
noticed chip shops are new opening sundays


bit more interesting than this post
Not sure wether this is a **** take or if your really that retarded.
There's a definite gap in the market for a carrier that would specialise in evening/weekend domestic deliveries.
Anyone got Lord sugars number?
Couriers prices are very dependent on businesses and offices etc receiving and sending out packages and most are closed, which keeps prices down.

An example of this is couriers deliver on Saturdays but because the volumes are lower, courier prices change from around £5 per package to £15-£35 for the same size package and Sunday would be even more expensive because of double time etc.
some carriers work sundays but only pick up from companys like amazon fro monday deliveries
