Parcelforce 15% off discount @ Parcelforce and in Post Offices

This is just a heads up as I see many people in the post office who really don't have a clue what service they should get or fail to get proof of postage - which covers you up to £20.

By all means turn this into a debate about the merits or not of the courier you use.

For a lot of people and who don't want the faff of signing up to various sites, don't have a depot nearby or can't wait for a courier to turn up most people have a post office nearby and most collect Parcelforce packages which are generally large or heavy.

What a lot of people don't know is that if you join Rewards4U on their site you get 15% off. You can also get this in post offices even if you haven't got an account with them. Just tell them that you have and hey presto - 15% off like that!

Like all these companies that quote a price and can instantly knock a decent % off it goes to show quite how much we are being ripped off in the 1st place but - hey ho!!

I generally use MyHermes and out of over 700 parcels around 5 have been lost or damaged. Pretty good odds and a lot better than RM.

But if you have a large or expensive item that requires additional cover and that's convenient then Parcelforce aren't bad.

I always advise sending the quickest way so it isn't getting chucked about so with the 15% saved you can gain 24 hours less worry time!

Hope this helps someone who was unaware

Thanks for the input.

Hadn't heard of Despatchbay but don't like the fact you have to sign up to get an idea of pricing.

Interlink have been good when I've used them and like I said, Hermes, only a handful have gone wrong for me in over 700.

Royal Mail / Parcelforce website and tracking is truly in the last century but if you need to drop and go may as well get 15-45% off!

myhermes or parcel2go.
Parcelforce is always too expensive.

If you go on parcel monkey or parcel 2 go then order parcel force then it works out about 15% cheaper anyway !! And I not had any problems with my Hermes they been pretty good touch wood

Will not trust Parcel2go with my parcels , They lost one of my bags and were not helpful to track it down .

What a lot of people don't know is if you have an Ebay parcel to post and are sending by Parcelforce then book via Ebay print postage link as it is half the price of buying in the PO. My local Postmaster tutted and said he could give me a discount if I'd bought the parcel to him instead of booking on line, he wouldn't believe me when I said I'd only paid £7.98!

well I am awainting on a parcel to be delivered which is quite heavy and should have been here yesterday. found a card to say Parcelforce tried to deliver at 10:20 yesterday but it seems the driver has just come by and posted the card without even ringing the buzzer to my flat to let me know. Probably didn't want the hassle of bringing it up to me but they are supposed to deliver again today so I will see how that goes. Not good on Parcelforce if their drivers don't even make an effort to do their job properly!

does anyone have a working 45% off unidays code?

Sounds like more a problem with what service you paid for or the sender used. As explained, I always use 24hour or less tracked and insured.

If it doesn't turn up by then I get refunded.

Their tracking and delivery is quite shocking if you don't send 24 hours or by 12 though.

RM and Parcelforce is one of the worst online companies available especially for a national company. It's quite shocking!!
