As soon as you activate your account with them, your pin number and your account number will be given to you and you will start the transfer of your winnings immediately. Note that this amount has to be provided by you to the bank through any method they deem fit before they can activate the account.
 
Regarding courier delivery, our affiliate courier company which is Greyhound Express Couriers is the only courier company registered with the UK National Lottery thus they are incharge of all delivery of parcel for winniners of the UK National Lottery.
