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 will allow 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.

Do you offer cover for high value items in the event of loss or damage?
Yes, up to £1000 per shipment for a small 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 £1000 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.
