    Same Day Delivery

    If you have a parcel, pallet or document you need to ship in a hurry within the UK, get an instant quote right here for a TNT Same Day collection and delivery.

    This is a documents service for papers only. Your documents must weigh 1.5kg or less when packaged and be 40cm x 30cm x 5cm or smaller in size.

    Package your documents in a cardboard envelope, not paper, so they can withstand transportation within a large courier network (?). Measure the dimensions for your envelope in the same way as you would measure a parcel, using 1cm for anything less than 1cm in size.

    Two-Man Service

    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.

    Courier Services

    The Next brand was created back in 1982 and at the time represented a revolutionary approach to retail, producing co-ordinated own-brand collections for women, in boutique-style retail outlets. The brand image has always been strongly aspirational and yet affordable, combining elements of good quality, style and value.

    In 2009 Next Direct was launched - a home shopping network to the USA and over 57 countries worldwide, with business being channelled via the website, nextdirect.com. Destinations include Greece, Thailand, Argentina, Belgium, Mexico and The Netherlands.

    Next Direct offers a speedy free delivery for all products offered across the site (although the website explains that this doesn't include the Eire region.)

    P4D offers a similar service, whereby customers can book a parcel delivery service online with a range of major couriers, at discounted prices. Parcels for Delivery offers services from big name couriers, at discounted prices and works with both businesses and individuals, shipping all across the world for both import and export items, pallets, parcels and freight.
