How do I get a parcel delivery quote?

August 18, 2011

You may be surprised at the different ways you can get a parcel delivery quote these days.

Go direct.
The obvious choice is to go direct to the courier. You can phone, visit their website or even drop into a local depot. There is a stack of choice out there. You could pick a household name like Parcelforce Worldwide, City Link or Yodel – or opt for a more localised or smaller scale service. With so many companies to choose from, you’re bound to find a product and service that meets both your budget and delivery specification.

Try a professional booking agent.
Perhaps a more cost effective solution is to try a courier comparison site.
These websites work by providing quotes for a number of different services and couriers based on your parcel’s size, weight and destination. You can find them on-line by searching cheap parcel delivery. Even better these middlemen are cheaper than using a courier direct. They buy collections in bulk then pass some of their savings onto you. In fact Martin Lewis – the Money Saving Expert did an interesting post about such budget courier services around Christmas last year. You can find out what he thinks here:

Booking agents offer additional benefits.
As well as saving money many booking agents offer a very good after sales service. So if you have any problems with either your collection or delivery they will deal with the courier on your behalf. What a time saver!

What’s more; if you have an iPad, iPhone or iPod, has a FREE App which lets you track your parcel on the go. You can get your hands on the app at this link:
