First time parcel delivery

Found 10th Dec 2014
Looking for a courier where I can drop off/courier picks up from my door to their home address. The parcel is weighed at 2.9KG. What courier service is best for this situation? Cheers.

Try Parcels2go to see the price, availability, delivery time and insurance of quite a few couriers in one easy place. Just measure and weigh the package, obtain the estimate price, set up an account and pick your courier and wait. I've used Hermes Economy so far without a problem but remember at this time of year anything can happen so get sufficient insurance, wrap the item well and make sure you get a tracked courier service.

For new customer with parcels2go discount code FIRSTFREE. You get £10 FREE, NO MINIMUM SPEND.

As above try parcel2go and with £10 off you can afford to use city link which should come to around £8. Excellent service

Word of warning... Parcels to go are good competitive prices but some companies they use are shocking. My partner uses parcels 2 go daily but wouldn't entertain yodel ever again. An item that should have been collected 2 weeks ago the buyer is still yet to receive the item. Hermes are far more reliable and you don't get the hassle of having to keep phoning them up to find out where the parcel is when you have customers kicking off at you. City link through parcels to go is only £1 more for 24 hour delivery also

Why would you want to use CityLink?

royal mail £2.80 for 2nd class parcel

Parcel Monkey

you may try here, but this is similar to Parcels2go.

collectplus.co.uk I have sent loads via this company and never once had a problem, great service, tracking included and usually quite quick delivery (obviously near xmas they might take a little longer)

why wouldn't you? I sent something yesterday with them through parcels2go and customer received today. And for 30p I got a text notification to say it had been delivered. Great service I think.

Why else?
