However, with cheap prices and great services, Worldwide Parcel Services makes "down under" seem so much closer to home!

Australia is a hot spot for Brits migrating and backpacking, so we see a lot of parcels sent to family and loved ones.

So much better

I had ten cartons to send from UK to Australia, weighing between 6 and 10 kilos each. Post would have been a killer so I searched and luckily found WPS. The website was easy to follow and get information, the telephone customer service staff were excellent, and the amount quoted for air transport was much cheaper than I'd been quoted for sea transport from another company. All the required documentation was emailed to me, with clear instructions for completion, and pickup from my UK address was arranged. Everything went exactly as promised, and the cartons were delivered to my address in Australia before I got there (good neighbours on standby). Nothing was damaged! Fantastic service!

Excellent service

This was our first experience sending a large parcel from the UK to Australia. The service provided by World Wide Parcel Services exceeded our expectations in all aspects. The web site was easy to use and the phone support provided was of a high standard. Great service and will definitely use again.

The first company I contact for worldwide parcels

My parcel destined for Bologna was collected very shortly after I booked and I was able to track it to its destination and keep my customer informed. I'd previously experienced a super service for a large item destined for Australia too, so didn't hesitate to use the company again. Prices are very reasonable and I know that it will get there with no problems!
