Fast, efficient and reliable parcel delivery for small businesses

We deliver all across Mainland UK with a next day* service no matter how near or far and with prices starting from as little as £1.99* (ex VAT) you can’t go wrong. We’re not on price comparison sites so you get the best rates coming direct; we don’t pass your parcel on to anyone else and it will be handed and delivered by our own extensive network.


So many ways to save on delivery costs!


Not only do we offer some of the cheapest parcel delivery prices to be found online, we also provide some exciting ways to help you keep a hold of those pounds and pennies.  For example, you can save £1 on all additional UK parcels added to one order. Even if you add items for collection after booking the first, provided the collection is from the same address, for all parcels at the same time, you’ll save £1 on each parcel sent.

If collection isn’t important to you but saving money is, you can drop off at one of our 50+ depots across the country – saving £1.25 in the process. More than double that saving to £3 by having your recipient collect from their local depot, too!  Check the local depot page for your nearest drop off point.

And if that isn’t enough to keep your pocket happy, how about saving up to an impressive £35 on your parcel delivery when you use our pre-pay top up service? You can top-up your account using PayPal, credit or debit card; the minimum top up is only £5 with a maximum of £500 in one go. If you’re a regular shipper with ipostparcels, our top-up account speeds up the parcel booking and ordering process as the credit is already there waiting when you’re ready to send.

How to send a parcel for delivery

 

It’s so easy to send a parcel from anywhere in the UK with us – our door to door delivery service can be all be booked from the comfort of your own home, by filling in your details online using our super-simple booking form.

  • Arrange collection of your parcel from your home or work address on a day to suit you – you’ll also be given a collection timeslot so you won’t have to wait in all day. If you can’t be in on the day the parcel has to be sent, we can pick it up from a designated safe place or neighbour (you can tell us where the safe place is when you book) and our driver will collect during the standard collection time window.
     
  • Alternatively, drop your parcels off at one of our 50+ depots if that suits you better and you’ll save yourself a tidy £1.25 per consignment (parcel) in the process.
     
  • When booking your parcel, you can specify the cover amount to suit the goods you’re sending – as standard, we provide cover on UK deliveries to £25 and international deliveries to £50, but you can increase the level of cover as required.
     
  • International parcel deliveries usually require additional paperwork for customs clearance – especially those countries outside the EU – but during the process of booking in your parcel, we will automatically provide you with any forms that need your attention, so don’t worry.
     
  • Specify if your recipient needs to sign for their parcel during the booking in process, or select a local depot for them to pick it up from (and save another £1.75).

And that’s it! In next to no time, your recipient will have their parcel in hand and you’ll be glad you used one of the UKs best and most reliable parcel delivery services.
