How long will it take for my parcel to be delivered?

When shipping with ipostparcels, your package can head off to its destination pretty much immediately. Once we've collected your parcel it will begin its journey that very same day, travelling to one of our many depots around the UK.
Choosing our next day delivery will mean you can send your parcel economically, whilst knowing it's in safe hands.

Guaranteed next day delivery

Need your parcel to arrive as soon as possible? With next day delivery as a prime option, you can book your parcel in to reach its destination the very next working day. Available Monday-Friday, your parcel will arrive between 8am and 6pm.

"But what happens if I order on a Friday?" we hear you cry! Well fear not, as it's simple to upgrade your delivery, so it will still arrive at the weekend even when booked on a Friday. This is a great option for those more urgent packages. It's worth noting, though, that overnight delivery is not available in some remote parts of the UK, but you will be able to determine this when making a booking.

If you need to ensure your delivery arrives at a specific time that's no problem either! Guaranteed time slots can be requested on next day deliveries; we are able to offer slots before 9am, 10.30 or noon for just a small amount extra. Make sure to fill out the appropriate part of the booking form to specify this.

International delivery times

Parcels making their way overseas will be delivered either via road or air, so understandably will take longer than a day, meaning next day delivery is not available on international deliveries. We are proud to offer some of the quickest delivery times around, though, and our express service means we can ship to many countries in as little two days.

With the assistance of our trusted international partner, your parcel will be delivered to its final destination in safe hands. We ship to over 160 countries around the world so delivery times will vary, depending on just where your parcel is going. You can help speed up the process by ensuring you only send safe items and fill out all customs paperwork in full.

Whatever you're sending, you can be assured that our competitive rates and quick delivery times will mean that your parcel will be whizzing on its way to your chosen destination with ease. Find out more about sending a parcel here.
