Parcel Sending Service
Parcel Sending Service for local customers
If you ever have the need to send parcels nationally, we can help!
We have accounts with UKMail and DPD and send lots of parcels through them on a daily basis. We enjoy preferential rates which you can experience too.
The standard rate we charge is £11 including vat, which is for single parcels up to 30kg in weight. The item or items must be well wrapped and protected for transport (for a small charge we may be able to wrap your item for you).
Delivery is normally 1-2 working days from when you drop the parcel off to us, weekend deliveries are available but cost substantially more. Deliveries are made weekdays between 8.30 and 17.30. If the recipient is not in, a calling card will be left with the local depots number on it so re-delivery can be made.
The £11 service covers deliveries to Mainland UK, with the exception of the areas below which have a higher charge.
AB31-AB38, AB40-AB45, AB51-AB56, FK19-FK21, HS1-HS9, IV1-IV28, IV30-IV32, IV36, IV40-IV49, IV51-IV56, KA27-KA28, KW1-KW17, PA20-PA49, PA60-PA78, PA80-PA88, PH1, PH5-PH26, PH30-PH44, ZE1-ZE3, Northern Ireland and the Isle of Wight.
