Choosing the Correct Postal Service

There are lots of options to choose from when picking the correct postal service to use for your deliveries, hopefully the following guidance will help you.
The options in the form also state whether parcel is tracked or not and also the maximum weight and dimensions allowed for that particular service.

UK Delivery

Packages less than 2kg

For all packages less than 2 kg we would normally utilise the services of a postal service. In the UK the main service is Royal Mail, the service you require depends on whether you want to obtain a signature for the parcel and how long it takes to deliver.
In our opinion unless you have a valuable item over £50 there is no benefit in sending it signed for, all our parcels we can obtain proof of postage for.
If you have high value items and want signatures then the Royal Mail Signed For Service will do the job.
1st Class is a 24 hour service by Royal Mail, they claim that 95% of all parcels sent will be delivered the following day, 2nd Class is a 48 hour service although these times are not guaranteed the majority are within these time scales.
Another option for smaller parcels is Amazon Shipping, they offer a service up to 2kg and maximum dimensions of 45 x 35 x 16cm.

Packages more than 2kg

For parcels larger than 2kg up to 25kg we would generally suggest using the DPD Next Day option, for non urgent items the budget carrier Hermes is a good option.

Non UK Delivery

Packages less than 2kg

For parcels going International out of the UK that weigh less than 2kg we would use the Royal mail option, Airmail is the standard non tracked option, if you require tracked or signed for that option is dependent on where the parcel is going.

Packages more than 2kg

For all packages been posted outside the UK weighing more than 2kg, please ask us as price will depend on Weight, Volume and destination, with millions of variations it is not possible to list all the possibilities.
