Parcel2Go Surpass Royal Mail with the UK's Cheapest 2 kg Deliveries

Thanks to the introduction of the myHermes Small and Medium services, Parcel2Go now boast the UK’s cheapest 2 kg parcel delivery at just £2.19 exc VAT.

The new price on 2 kg Small means that Parcel2Go beats Royal Mail's previously leading price of £2.85 by 22p per parcel. VAT–registered businesses can stand to save even more, at 66p per parcel when VAT is excluded.

With such significant savings available to senders, the change will likely bolster the profits of thousands of online businesses and SMEs as the Christmas peak approaches.



How it came about


The price change comes in the wake of a significant update to the way myHermes parcels are valued. Whereas previously all myHermes prices were calculated on weight brackets, the decision was made to change how parcels weighing up to 2 kg were priced, which led to the introduction of Small and Medium deliveries.

You can read more about the myHermes pricing update here.

Prior to the price change, Parcel2Go offered the UK’s cheapest price on 1 kg parcels but were less competitive at the 2 kg weight bracket.

With the introduction of ‘Small’ deliveries, however, Parcel2Go were able to offer customers the cheapest 2 kg delivery services too. Therefore, myHermes Small deliveries granted senders the opportunity to send 2 kg goods at what is essentially a 1 kg price.

£2.85 is price for Small Parcels. For Medium Parcel's Royal Mail charges more. Whereas myHermes charge for small parcel is £2.75.. So how is Royal Mail price is the leading price?

Sent three parcels with them on seperate occasions, two were stolen. Their insurance/compensation rates were cut a while back I seem to recall. Absolute joke. Royal Mail every time.
