Useful posting and packaging guides

At ipostparcels, your parcel is our priority and we strive to do everything we can to ensure it arrives at its destination in the same condition as it was sent. We employ the best people to take care of your delivery – however parcels are handled at many stages of their journey and may pass through fully automated sorters and conveyor systems.

As the sender, it’s your responsibility to make sure your parcel is addressed and labelled correctly, adequate packaging is used and that the contents are safe to be sent by post. So before you drop your parcel off at one of our depots or arrange collection of your parcel, we recommend you take a look at the guides available here to help you prepare the parcels to send.

From posting advice to packaging hints and tips, whether your parcel is staying in the UK or being sent internationally, there are a number of things you can do to make certain it stays intact and arrives safely and in good time.
