UPS Today is a new service from Parcel2Go which allows you to send a 10Kg parcel with UPS for £6 inc. VAT - this is for the UPS Access Point to Door service. Delivery is usually the day after collection. You also get cover up to £50 included which is better than booking through the regular Parcel2Go website. Much cheaper than using Collect+ for over 2Kg parcels.

Maximum Parcel Weight - 20 kg

I've updated the post - it is £6 for 10Kg but you can send up to 20Kg for £8.40.

Also where did the Max parcel info come from? I see this for AP:

What kind of packages can a consumer pickup or drop off at a UPS Access Point location?

Packages equal to or less than 20kg (44lbs.) are allowed.
Packages equal to or less than 80cm in length are allowed.
Packages with a declared value > £3,000 are not allowed.
Total size must not exceed 330cm/130" in length and girth combined.
For international packages, please include a commercial invoice

Delivery services really do seem to be getting competitive these days. About time too 8-)

Sorry voted cold by mistake .

Good spot be interesting to see what parcel2go will do

very good price. was sending pcs for a while that fell into these dimensions and they were about 8-9£

Great price and service - heat added.

I prefer to drop off at an Access Point other than a newsagents as they usually leave the parcels out on the shop floor to potentially get nicked!

I would like to see a parcel service that doesn't say something like, would you like to increase your protection up to the full value of £500 for only £22.50 extra. Of course they need to cover themselves but isn't their job to ensure the package gets where it's going in good shape and time

​or forget to charge the scanner, or don't know how to use it or leave you waiting while they serve customers with scratch cards, cigs etc. then leave it on view. The access points here are newsagents.

You mean getting towards zero hour contracts, working tax credits, freedom of movement of cheaper labour, and lower or zero corporation tax paid, patents registered in Switzerland.

UPS have started dropping all their home delivery parcels at access points and pretending you weren't home. Had to complain twice last week and its happening everywhere. This service compliments it well as all the drivers have to do now is drive from shop to shop and leave you doing all the work! No doubt the addressee will be unavailable. They probably even get commission from the shop as they are increasing footfall by making you drop off and pick up your "home" deliveries. Shopkeeper laughed when I said I was home all day and driver never even came near and said the driver always does that and was a pile of parcels abandoned on top of the newspapers for anyone to take and walk out with!!! Trying to be Amazon but without the lockers and just corner shops. Useless.

Hmm, so one local driver who isn't fit to work there reflects the entire company? No.

UPS in my area are one of the best, and i use couriers every day. I work from home and have never had a parcel dropped off at a local drop off point.

I guess, it's like complaining about your local paperboy on here, it will likely be only a minority of people affected by your drivers antics

IMHO the best courier out there for reliability. DPD's systems are better in regards for tracking the driver etc. But I have used UPS for years and never had a problem. Fantastic price. Makes you sick to see what Royal Mail charge for 10KG....

let's hope so.

UPS drivers are employed directly by the company the first class driver who does this area is English and has done the route for about 12 years. Compare that with the likes of UK Mail who do not employ any of their own drivers and use "self employed" or agency supplied asylum seekers and economic migrants

Don't touchUPS utter crap get your parcel in about a week they're coloured brown for a reason and it's not chocolate

This is simply a differently presented Parcel2Go portal so don't be fooled in to thinking you're booking direct with UPS. In the event of problems you'll have to deal with Parcel2Go customer service rather than contacting UPS directly. This means endless online chats with rude, uninformed and unhelpful Parcel2Go staff who really couldn't care less.

Make sure the item you want to send doesn't appear on their absurdly long list of excluded items otherwise you won't get any cover at all.

As said previously, Parcel2Go's support and exclusions list could be a problem.

UPS themselves are great round here though, up there with DPD.

I've been an idiot recently and sent an item without full cover by UPS. Getting £20 back as they've lost the item... It's worth a lot more... Never again...

I use interparcel, their prices are a bit higher but very good CS, compared to P2GO.

UPS are good, but P2Go are absolute rubbish

I find it incredible that parcel2go offer a 'no compensation at all' option.

So effectively I can pay £15 for UPS to deliver a parcel and if they wanted they could just chuck it in a skip and I'd have no comeback. What service am I actually paying for then?!

I mean, I know it's an option.... but I don't think it's an option that should exist personally!

Imagine going into McDonald's and ordering a Big Mac... "would you like Insurace on that to ensure we actually serve it to you and don't accidentally drop it in the bin on the way to the counter?"

Stupid analogy but there we go!

It's powered by Parcel2Go so the same price!

Title is misleading - this is NOT UPS - its Parcel2go - completely different level of service - title should state its Parcel 2go!

Parcel2Go are just handling the bookings - it is still UPS making the delivery - this is no different from booking UPS through the Parcel2Go website except the prices are lower and come with included compensation.

So you admit its no different to booking on parcels2go? So then it should say its parcel2go and not UPS in the title then.

UPS offer a far superior service to Parcel2go with many more features.

This is NOT a UPS deal, its a parcel2go deal.
