Do you have a parcel to go?
Perhaps you’re sending an anniversary gift to your parents overseas, or maybe you’re posting a jacket back to your friend who stayed over the weekend.
Whatever your reason for needing a postal service, once you’ve packed up your parcel the next thing to decide is who to send it with.
Luckily you’ve got a variety of choices depending on what you need to despatch.
If you’re sending a letter, Royal Mail is probably an instinctive choice.
But if you’re sending something a little larger you may want to explore alternatives that don’t involve a visit to the Post Office.
Smaller, localised couriers are an option. Although you may choose to post with a big brand courier company like City Link, DHL, Parcelforce Worldwide or Yodel. One of the benefits of these courier giants is they have well established networks that cover a massive geographical area, both home and abroad.
What’s more these courier companies will provide a significant choice when it comes to deciding which delivery specification best suits your needs. If you want to send something next day there’s no problem. If you want to send an item abroad that’s covered too. These big couriers works closely with overseas partners both in Europe and the rest of the world to offer a courier service that delivers in terms of specification and on price.
There’s even a solution if you have something larger to send. Pallet distribution companies like Palletways will collect from residential addresses as well as businesses and so offer a plausible solution when you need to post those bigger, bulkier items.
Finally you don’t even need to go direct these days. Consider using a middleman or affiliate like collectmyparcel.com. Not only will you get a good service, you could save some money too.
