Well, that depends on where it’s going, how quickly you want the courier to deliver it and also how big and bulky it is.
We all know how important cost is these days so many of us will always question how much could we save by shopping around and comparing prices. Comparison sites are a great way to compare your options, plus you can also uncover huge savings on everyday things, like postage costs.
We have noticed over recent years a slight shift away from people being concerned about how quickly a parcel can get to its destination, to how cheap the cost to send that parcel is.
We have courier services that can deliver in the UK from as little as £5.95 + VAT with DPD, whilst you can also have how much you spend at the Post Office by pre-booking a Parcelforce service online via our courier comparison site.
We might as well start off with covering our prices with parcels sent within the UK, and if you are wondering how to send a parcel - we make it nice and simple.
Here you get more choice in terms of the number of services available to you. To find out the cost of your domestic delivery just add the dimensions of the parcel into the quote form. You will then be offered a range of prices.
If you are 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 6 pm service. If you would like your parcel to be delivered by 9 am the next day, and then the price would be £22.49+VAT.
These Parcelforce services are still available up to around 70cm x 70cm x 70cm and 25kg but costing £30 + VAT for Parcelforce 48 or just a tad more for the Parcelforce 24 Large.
If you are considering a parcel of around 35kg, then you are likely only to have DX or Tuffnells. These couriers handle those big and bulky items that are normally costly to deliver from under £25 + VAT!
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 to send a parcel to these non-mainland parts of the UK.
As you can imagine with the distances being different for each country, then the prices will be different depending on where you would like your parcel shipped too. We are currently creating some easy to use country guides that 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).
