How much does it cost to send a parcel?
Well, that depends on where it’s going, how quickly and bulky it is.
Cost is so important these days. We've noticed over recent years a slight shift away from people being concerned about how quickly a parcel can get to its destination and to how cheap the cost to send that parcel is.
To give our customers the cheapest price possible we've segmented the services down so the smaller, less heavy a parcel is: the less you pay. Although that's good for you, it does make it difficult to summarise the prices. We'll do our best here.
What is your cheapest service?
We now offer a locker-to-locker service which often is the cheapest method we have for sending a parcel. To reduce the cost of the service to a minimum the service requires that you drop off the parcel at a specificed location. We have recently launched a service by Yodel which allows you to send parcels with next working day delivery for as little as £9.59 with the Yodel 48 option.
But I want a realy cheap courier collection service, what do you have to offer?
We do have a very cheap option in the form of DX that you could consider.
UK Domestic Courier Prices
We might as well start off with covering our prices with parcels sent within the UK mainland. Here you get more choice in terms of the number of services available to you. To find out the cost for your domestic delivery simply add the dimensions of the parcel into the quote form,
You will then be met with a range of prices.
Medium Sized Packages
If you're looking to send a parcel that is larger, perhaps 50cm x 50cm x 50cm and weighing 15kg these prices would around £9.49+vat for the popular next day by 6pm service. If you would like your parcel to be delivered by 9am the next day then the price would be £22.49+VAT.
These Yodel and Parcelforce services are still available up to around 70cm x 70cm x 70cm and 25kg but costing £16.68+vat for next day 6pm. At this weight we have no timed service available. However, Parcelforce does have a specific 'large' service from £28.95+vat on a two-day delivery basis.
Very Heavy Packages
If you are considering a parcel of around 35kg then you are likely to only have DX as an option.
Scottish Islands, Channel Islands, Northern Ireland
We're currently in the process of changing the booking process for people wishing to send parcels to the UK islands and Northern Ireland. Click here to find out how send a parcel to these non-mainland parts of the UK.
International Parcel Delivery
As you can imagine with the distances being different for each country, then the prices will be different dependent on where you would like your parcel shipped too. We are currently creating some easy to use country guides which you can find on our international parcel delivery page. These pages will not only detail the relevant courier prices, but importantly any customs restrictions should they exist (we hope we've got them all).
