    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.

    Find a Postcode

    In some cases a person may need to find information without having the details to hand and in these instances multiple postcode finders provided on many websites across the internet can prove helpful.

    List of Postcodes

    Postcode finder services are similar to address finder ones, except the information is reversed a little. Instead of typing in a postcode to find an address, other parts of the address can be input to determine the attached postal reference.

    Using The Service

    In order to make sure the results are as accurate as possible, it is beneficial to have as much of the full address as possible to guarantee good results.

    As with addresses, postcodes can be used to find relevant information and can be a useful service for both individuals and business. As with address finder services, their searches can be limited by some providers, to ensure the service runs efficiently and smoothly for everyone using it.

    How They Work

    Postcodes are a very effective way of managing and sorting information in a way which is easy to understand, consistent and user-friendly. They pinpoint a specific house, street and area and as a national system have helped simplify data and make related information easy to find, with little room for error.

    Since their introduction, which started in the 1950s, postcodes have been instrumental in ensuring mail is sorted and delivered quickly and specific addresses can be identified easily by anyone requiring them.

    In recent years the availability of postcodes has increased, due in part to more people having and using the internet and using it in place of directory enquiry services to access specific information.
