***If you've used this, check your bank statements 1-2 weeks after payment. At least three people (including myself) have been charged extra fees of £60+ without notice on top of the delivery charge. I can definitely say in my case this is erroneous and is in dispute, and despite my posting this deal can no longer recommend it at all***

Price available with discount code (-10%) until 07/07/2019 after which it reverts to £4.19. Includes £60 insurance.

You'll need to enter an email address to receive communications from them (I haven't received anything yet) and a link will be provided with the discount code already activated.

Insurance is generally much cheaper than found on other third party websites - e.g. I've just posted a £600 laptop for £16.07 (access point to door) which is much less than the ~6% of item value P2G charges just for insurance.

Collection from your address and/or delivery to an address (rather than access points) is an extra £2.40 each. The initial price quoted when entering address details assumes delivery to the recipient's address - you need to select delivery to an access point on the next page to get the cheaper price.

Looks to be generic - two of us got the same code but the link is slightly different.
Can't find anything to suggest the maximum size for each price band, but as UPS work on dimensional weight entering the measurements brings up an accurate price. A 30*30*30 box brings up the cheapest price, a 35*35*35 pushes the price up.
Something is not right ... I'm trying to book parcel for delivery, from my local drop off ups point to delivery address .. it's showing higher rate now. Any idea, how will you get these rates of £4.19 ?

From what I can gather it's a drop off to collection point, and delivery to another collection point where the receipent collects it from. It isn't any cheaper than the normal drop off a delivery to customer address by the looks.

The £4.19 is for drop off at an access point for delivery to another for the recipient to collect from. Delivery to the recipient address costs an extra £2.40 compared to the access point option.
No good, nobody wants to collect parcels from a shop.

Upstoday.com is the best for ups drop off delivered direct to an address, which is £6 and im sure it covers up to 15kg or around there.

Nobody wants to but its probably far more ideal to collect from your local shop that's useally open till late rather then have to travel miles to a depot to collect it because your never in.

Upstoday is great but be carefull on the size of the box. I can't remeber the exact prices but it went upto something like £8.40 for going over a specific size but on there sister site parcel2go it was only about an extra 80p. On smaller size parcels it's the other way around.

I agree. But most people don't like it.

Also, ups don't take it back to the depot. They attempt redelivery 1 or 2 more times. If nobody is in then they leave it at a access point. At which point the buyer has no choice but to collect as its their fault for missing delivery.

But I agree. The shops are usually real local.

I was running in to problems with the patcel2go offer as measurements not mentioned.....worked out small parcels 39cm to get those prices.

Agreed athlough I have to say the tracking is woefull in this day an age. Its taking me well over an hour after the parcel has been picked up or delivered before or shows up on the tracking for me.

No disrespect to the op but I don't understand how this is such a hot deal.
I just posted something today with UPS using eBay shutl which charged £7.29...damn

I'm not sure you can get £6 as that's probably before Vat, I'm still using shutl for dpd or ups as I can't find any cheaper.

Depending on the size and weight you can get it sent via ups to someone's address providing you drop it off at a collection point for £6 Inc vat on upstoday
Never using ups again after they measured and weighed my parcel wrong to the point it was nearly double the weight then tried charging me over £60 for delivery after they delivered the item had to send pictures and dimensions proof over to them to prove they got it wrong

I've mainly used the site for sending high value items like laptops, where the insurance at £8 for £700 cover (something like that) is far cheaper than any other site. The need to have everything in a box for UPS and not with plastic wrap or anything non-cardboard round it is a pain though.
Never had problem with UPS. Not the cheapest but good for high value items. Used to like DPD too but after this week - no more for me.
Got to say, the site is awful. It took payment for a shipment and then errored and can't see that it's actually processed the order . Phoned tech support and tried again after creating account and it comes up with random error messages when trying to make payment. Gave up!
just used UPS for a large item delivery, paid for standard yesterday and dropped off locally in the afternoon.

Just notified already delivered this morning, great service!

Agreed.
Despite me posting this deal, I'm no longer going to recommend booking through the site.
I've just been charged almost £62 extra for an 'oversized parcel' - all the measurements are correct, but luckily I took extensive photographs of the sizes and weight of the parcel.
If anyone does use them I'd recommend doing the same and also make sure parcels are encased in cardboard and not in jiffy bags, or boxes enclosed in wrap or mailing bags as this also incurs extra charges.

Yep never using them again lucky I had pictures as well but they were taken after I sent the parcel, I had the same box and same item so revised it and sent the measurements and weight pictures over to Parcel2go and they sided with me thankfully otherwise I would have had to pay £85 for a 20kg display that I sold for£150 to be delivered. Never using ups again.
