If you are not entirely certain about any aspect of Worldwide Parcel Service delivery options, please do contact us. Before you here are our most frequently asked questions and this should help answer some of your queries.

How do I pay for your parcel services?

At checkout you can pay by debit/credit card or PayPal. If you are unable to pay by any of these methods, you can contact us, and we supply our bank details for you to pay us by bank transfer.

Is your parcel service door to door?

Yes, our services are door to door, but we also offer a parcel drop-off service, giving you the convenience of not having to wait in for the courier driver to collect.

Do you offer cover for high value items in the event of loss or damage?

Yes, up to £2000 per shipment at an extra cost, subject to terms and conditions. Please check our prohibited and restricted items list before taking out cover on your parcel. In the case of a consignment the £2000 cover will be divided equally between the number of parcels in the consignment.

What is "volumetric" weight?

Couriers charge the greater of the actual or volumetric weight. Our site automatically calculates this when you obtain a quote from our site, so it is essential that you provide accurate weights and sizes. For more details on volumetric weight please refer to our "Help" section.

Are the parcel delivery times guaranteed?

Delivery times are a rough guide and are not guaranteed, but the delivery success is around 95% within the times specified. Transit times do not include the day of collection, weekends or bank holidays and are subject to customs clearance.

What labels are required for my parcel?

When you book you must ensure that you only attach the labels emailed to you from us. Do not use any paperwork supplied by the driver under any circumstances. Doing so will result in substantial extra charges for which you are liable.

Do I need a commercial/pro-forma invoice for my parcel?

All shipments outside the UK require commercial or pro-forma invoices regardless as to whether the shipment is for business or private/personal purposes. Many countries use the paperless commercial invoices system. We make and send these electronically when you book when applicable. For countries not using the paperless system you will be asked to print the commercial invoice.

Who pays the customs charges for my parcel?

Where due, customs charges are usually paid by the recipient. If the item is delivered without the recipient paying and the charge is billed to us, you will be liable for the charges.

Do you do home collections?

Of course! All of our couriers can pick up from your house and deliver to the front door of the required address.

Does my item have to be packaged?

Yes. All parcels must be packaged, preferably in a strong cardboard box, with adequate padding to avoid movement of the item within the parcel. Parcels must not be wrapped in plastic.
