Just like letter services - the postage rate you will be given will depend on some factors.
For the smallest of parcels, or what the Royal Mail call "large letter", we're probably not the best shipping solution for you. But when it comes to larger parcels we can offer a significant reduction on traditional services.
When you drop off a letter or package at the Post Office, they'll check the dimensions of your item to ensure the correct prices are charged. However, when you send a parcel via a courier with a collection service, we are reliant on being given the correct information to establish the which services are relevant and which prices to charge. The advantage of this is that you can quickly add the dimensions of your parcel into our quick quote form and be given a range of services and prices. The Post Office gives their prices but you have to look through their lists of weights and then locate the particular service related to the size of your parcel - which can be relatively complicated, and is likely to change.
It's still a very easy service to use, all you need to do is safely package your parcel, weigh it and then measure its length, depth and height. Then you can use that information and place it in the box to the right. This will then give you a range of prices applicable to that parcel and then choose from the different couriers and service levels.
The process of establishing how much 'postage' will cost you is to use the form at the bottom of the page. Essentially all calculations, with us or with Royal Mail or Parcelforce, are calculated by looking at the dimensions of your parcel and its weight and then using that to look to see which services are available and then displaying the price. It's certainly no different than using, say, the Royal Mail's online postage calculator. Hopefully, we've streamlined the process so that the available options and prices are very clear.
This is where we can offer great postage rates. We have a wide variety of courier services that serves to offer our customers the range of choice they require. We can provide you with the cheapest prices for parcels from just 1kg to 15kg and over 40kg. All you need to do is ask what they are.
As we serve over 200 destinations around the world it would be a very long list if we chose to list all of our international postage rates for the different weight bands, all we can suggest is that you just add your details into the quote box above and see if our prices are cheap enough for you. We also offer an additional road service to European destinations to further offer a great choice.
We believe we do, just like the traditional mail service we can offer your parcel to be delivered next day, however, on a door to door basis. On a metaphorical basis we also believe we offer a first class service, if you wish to confirm this, you can check our unfiltered list of customer reviews.
No, you won't need any stamps. When you book online payment will be taken then, but for some of the services you'll need to print off a delivery label that you'll need to secure to your parcel. A couple of our services don't require a printer as the courier will bring the label for you. This will be clear in the booking process.
