The two-man service is not suitable for one-off bookings, but is a flexible and affordable service for any business regularly shipping bulky items that can't be shipped via a pallet service. Two Yodel XL couriers arrive to lift your items in to the van safely and securely, and upon delivery can assist with installation or other specialist requirements. Tailor-made to suit your needs it is suitable for delivery of white goods, brown goods, beds and mattresses, flat pack or rigid furniture, garden furniture, gym equipment and more.
P4D for Business
If you ship regularly, you'll always be looking for the most affordable shipping service you can find, but this doesn't mean it should be cheap: service is just as important, as is customer support when you need it. We offer a wide choice of courier networks with UK, European and international delivery for parcels, pallets, documents and freight.
The more you ship, the more you'll save with cheaper rates for higher volumes, regular collection if you need it, plus integration for your online shop to streamline your delivery process. We have a strong customer service team on hand over the phone and by email out of hours. There are also designated contacts for business account holders to help keep all of your shipping activity under one roof.
Home Delivery Network UK's Largest
The company began life as Home Delivery Services, shortly after the 1971 postal strike, opening its first depot in Sunderland. By 1980 it had some 32 depots and was acquired by Federal Express in 1988.
Home Delivery Network Parcel
Home Delivery Network Limited (HDNL) was formed in 2005 following the separation of Littlewoods Ltd. and now operates from 62 depots nationwide with 4,360 vehicles responsible for deliveries.
Parcel Delivery Services
These 62 depots are controlled from four specialist hubs, based in London, Worcester, Northern Ireland and Bolton, which between them deliver over two million consignments throughout the UK each year. In addition, HDNL operates from two separate sort centres, one of which is based in Oldham in the Greater Manchester area, the other in Droitwich, Worcestershire.
Home Delivery Services introduced track and trace technology to its courier service in 1999 and this was expanded in 2000. Due to the increase in popularity of internet shopping and the growing demand for the services of the newly formed HDNL, it upgraded its track and trace systems once more in 2007 so that it now provided 24/7 real time track and trace on all items.
Home Delivery Network employs over 3,500 driving staff alone and they deliver some 300,000 parcels of 25kg or under every day. Any larger consignments every day, those that weigh up to 120kg and require two people to deliver are handled by the specialist hubs.
Home Delivery Network has now become the UK's largest dedicated home delivery service and provides delivery to all 1,760,000 UK postcodes across 120 postal regions. This equates to two-thirds of the UK population receiving at least one delivery from Home Delivery Network each year.
