We have a vast number of people asking how long does it take for a parcel to be sent from various places from within the UK to other towns and mainland UK cities. For the significant many it will be the next day after collection – as long as that’s the service you've ordered. We generally label those services as ‘next day’ or ‘24’.
Some out-lying areas of Scotland my, occasionally, take another day given weather conditions and other restrictions. These places, include, but are not limited to, Durness, Tongue, Thurso, Wick, Helmsdale, Cromaty, Fraserburgh and Ullapool
We also have a next day service to the Republic of Ireland via Parcelforce, although for Northern Ireland we offer a 48 hour service via City Link. We also do offer a next day service for the Channel Islands and the Isle of Wight.
Where it gets more complicated is when it comes to international parcel delivery. We have guide list of expected delivery times here which should give you a quick glance of the length of time it typically takes for a parcel to be delivered to foreign shores.
That's no problem, if time really is important and you need a parcel delivered in a matter of hours, rather than days, then we have a service for you too. It's cleverly called the same day delivery service.
... to get a quick quote of the service levels and expected time to deliver estimates. You can get those details using the box to the right, or using this form.
But don't forget that if you've got any questions, then feel free to drop us a line and we'll try and help you.
