    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.

    Parcelforce UK National Hub

    When sending any parcel via a courier service including Parcelforce UK, there are a few things to bear in mind. First, with regard to wrapping the items they are best placed in an inner box and ideally they should be wrapped with bubble wrap. For more fragile items, these should be packaged using extra protection materials such as polythene foam, crumpled newspaper or polystyrene chips.

    All items should then be packaged in an outer box, preferably made of rigid or reinforced cardboard and sealed appropriately. Reinforced carton tape should ideally be used for sealing and not standard household tape and it is recommended that you ensure to seal any open edges of the parcel both at the top and the bottom. If the parcel is not adequately packaged and sealed any compensation claims may be invalid.

    All parcels should be clearly labelled using clear plastic envelopes, which should be securely attached to a strap or via a bag tie. Labels glued to the parcels are liable to get detached during transit. In addition, the parcels should be accurately addressed and the postcode must be included. It is also recommended that you include your own address or phone number on the parcel should contact be necessary during transit.
