Knowing which parcel delivery service to use isn’t always easy, as there’s no straight forward answer. The service that you choose will be the one that best fits your needs, there are a few things you should consider when choosing the right service for you, the first being whether you will require a collection or drop-off service.
If you are in one location for the majority of the day; maybe you work from home or can get items collected from the office; then a collection service would be easy and convenient for you.
However, if you have a busy schedule and can’t allocate a full day or even a few hours to sit at home and wait, then a drop-off service will be the most ideal. There are thousands of drop-off points across the country, so you’ll be able to find one near you.

The next thing you’ll need to look at is how quickly you need the parcel delivered. If it’s urgent you may want to look at booking same day or next day delivery. If there’s no rush and you want a slightly more affordable option, then look at 2 or 3+ day delivery.
As with choosing the right service for you, choosing the right parcel delivery company can depend on a few factors. The courier you choose to book will depend on your needs; you’ll want to think about time scale, budget, collection or drop-off service and where the parcel is being sent - UK or internationally.
