    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.

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.

    Postage Prices to Europe

    Many small sellers fail to consider using courier services because they believe such companies do not want to deal with individuals as opposed to companies and that the costs will be prohibitively high. This, however, is not always the case.

    Through P4D you can book discounted parcel-delivery services with all the major couriers - companies whose names you know and trust - potentially slashing your costs and boosting your profits. Discounts with major courier companies are normally only available to customers who send thousands of parcels each month, leaving individuals or small businesses with no choice but to pay the full postal prices.

    Postage Prices for Parcels

    P4D works as a broker for the courier companies and handles thousands of bookings and inquiries each day. As a result, P4D is able to obtain lower rates for its services and passes these on to its customers. You can expect to save around £10 on a UK delivery, more than £30 on shipping a parcel to the EU and even more on worldwide delivery.

    Another benefit of using a courier service as opposed to standard Royal Mail delivery is that the latter does not enable you to track parcels. With a courier you can closely monitor the progress of your parcel from any internet-connected computer and know exactly when it has been delivered.

    Cheapest is not, however, always best. Knowing that your parcel is going to be delivered on time or that a customer service team is on standby to deal with any unforeseen problems is almost always worth paying a little more for. Don't be swayed by postal prices alone - be sure to check the exact quality of the service you will be receiving for your money to ensure your customers keep on coming back.
