UK courier services - packaging advice

ipostparcels allows you to send to anywhere in the UK and Ireland easily, reliably and at a great price – with collection from your home or work making us convenient to use and with £25 item cover, one hour window slots and a fully tracked service as standard, it’s no wonder we have the reputation and reviews we do.

With the best people employed by us to look after the thousands of parcels, packages and packets we deliver daily, we’re confident you’ll be satisfied you chose us to send your parcel and it will arrive in the same condition it was sent.

That said, consider the journey a parcel will take to get from A to B; taking the time to ensure what you’re sending is packaged well and labelled correctly will certainly help make sure everything arrives in tact and in good time - see the guides below for packaging help and advice for your UK parcel delivery with ipostparcels.
