Postal charges and how we beat the competition

We at P4D can provide low cost delivery because of the unique way we organise our service. Unlike other companies, which simply bundle together individual items from different clients into one large order, we act as a broker and so have low costs based on our relationship with courier companies.

    Same Day Service

    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.

    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.

    Postage Charges Parcels

    This means that our postal charges remain low no matter what. We are among a small number of trusted partners that big name delivery companies have permanent relationships with. This means that our low postal charges apply whether you send one parcel every six months or hundreds of parcels every day.

    Calculate Postage Charges

    As with all couriers the size of your packages will dictate the price you pay. When working out your postal charges there are two key dimensions that you need to make note of. A simple rule of thumb is that you must know the longest length of your parcel and the volume of it. Packages should not be any longer than 1.5 metres. Volume is a little trickier, but there is a simple way to work it out and reduce your postal charges.

    Delivery Charges

    The maximum allowable volume for the cheapest charge is 0.23 cubic metres. This figure is easy enough to work out. Simply measure the height, width and length of your parcel and then multiply them together. If you have measured in centimetres, you will have the volume of the package in centimetres cubed. Fortunately at P4D, we will work it out for you when you enter the size into the easy to use booking system.

    For added peace of mind any number of parcels up to ten are covered for £50 worth of damage or loss. If you are sending more than that, you will need to pay a modest fee for greater cover. For the small cost of £20 you can get covered for up to £1,000 worth of loss or damage.
