Are you aware that the prices of 1st and 2nd class stamps are set to rise by 14p from April 30th 2012?
If this imminent price hike is making you think about a different way to send a parcel, have a look at a courier service.
If you think courier services are expensive, then you may be interested to know that there is a way to courier a parcel a bit cheaper.
Use a courier booking agent or a re-seller
Courier booking agents and re-sellers book collections on your behalf with the big name courier companies such as City Link, Parcelforce Worldwide and Yodel. What’s more, because they buy so many collections, they get a bulk-buying discount and are able to offer you a cheaper service.
A cheaper price isn’t the only reason to use a booking agent. Often, these on-line companies will have their own customer service team meaning, if there’s a problem with your collection or delivery, they’ll handle it for you. That’s one less thing for you to worry about.
You stay in control
It’s your parcel so you should choose how it’s handled. Re-sellers and middlemen often have a quote and book service. This clever app enables you to get a range of quotes for different couriers and delivery specifications with just one search. The benefit is, you can instantly see which big brand courier offers you the best deal for your parcel delivery.
If you’re looking to reduce your postage rates, have a search for cheap parcel delivery and see if it pays for you to switch.
