Choose the right way to
send your parcels
You can also save time by finding the best posting service for your needs before you visit. Here are the three key things to consider when sending your parcel:
When would you like it to arrive?
If you’d like guaranteed next working day delivery, choose Royal Mail Special Delivery Guaranteed or Parcel Force Worldwide Express 24, 9, 10 and AM. If not, Royal Mail 1st Class aims to deliver the next working day and 2nd Class within 2-3 working days.
Need cover for its contents?
Choose a service that offers the right level of compensation in the unlikely event your item gets lost, damaged or delayed. Royal Mail UK standard delivery covers items up to the value of £20, UK Signed For up to £50 and Special Delivery Guaranteed up to £500 as standard. Only Special Delivery covers sending valuables such as cash, vouchers and jewellery.
Do you want a signature on delivery and/or full tracking?
For peace of mind you can track your item all the way to loved ones with a signature on receipt with Special Delivery and Parcelforce services. Or use Royal Mail Signed For if you just need reassurance who has received your item. During the Covid-19 pandemic, a name will be asked and logged upon delivery instead of a signature.
