Medium parcels can fit items such as laptops.

Remember, if you are posting large items of high value take out extended contents cover for the value of the item or items in the parcel – we offer free £25 contents cover on all UK orders and free £50 contents cover on all international orders. Also, make sure you package your items and parcel correctly to avoid any damage during transit - See our handy guide to packaging and waterproofing your parcel.


How heavy is an extra-large parcel?

Did you know that 2kg is the same weight as 2 Litres of water? If you’re sending an extra-large parcel which is 20-25kg, you could think about it in weight of 2L bottles of water. We would always advise that you weigh your parcel with scales to ensure you get the cheapest delivery rate and avoid having your parcel returned to you if you have under-declared the weight of the parcel.

The size and weight of your parcel matters

Our quick quote will give you the best price available based on the weight and dimensions you enter. Pricing is based on an actual weight of up to 25kg but if the volumetric weight of your parcel exceeds the actual weight, you’ll be charged the volumetric weight. That means if your parcel is larger than it is heavier then we’ll price your parcel based on the volumetric weight which is the width x height x length divided by 5000.

How to package a large or heavy item for delivery

Packaging and waterproofing your parcel correctly is essential to ensuring your parcel arrives at it’s destination as you packaged it. Heavy and large items are often manually handled at several stages throughout the shipping process as they’ll be too big to go through our automated sortation hubs.
