Covid-19 Update

We are still collecting and delivering parcels across the UK and delivering worldwide. All of our drivers are making contact-free collections and deliveries.

We have suspended all UK drop-off and collection services, as well as deliveries to some international destinations. The only UK service available is our Next Day door-to-door service. Please note, all domestic prices shown on the site are for this service.


Your customer will be kept in the loop from collection right through to delivery with our email and text notifications and live online tracker.

We believe sending and receiving parcels should be easy and that’s why we always strive to deliver a convenient and flexible service which fits into the busy lifestyles of our customers and their recipients.

When you send a parcel using our next day UK delivery service, we’ll keep your customer in the loop with regular email and text notifications throughout the parcel’s journey. To take advantage of this completely free service, simply provide your recipient’s email address and telephone number when placing the booking and we’ll do the rest.

No need to wait in for parcels

Gone are the days when a recipient needs to wait in all day for a parcel to be delivered. With our email and text notifications, your recipient will receive a one-hour time slot on the morning of the delivery and a ‘You’re next’ text when they are the next stop on the driver’s route.

Our live tracker is updated in real time so you and your recipient can see exactly where the parcel is from collection right through to delivery. On the day of the delivery, the tracker will even show how many stops our driver has on their route and which stop the driver is at throughout the journey.

Flexible and convenient delivery


If the delivery day allocated isn’t convenient for your recipient, they can easily reschedule the delivery to another day. Alternatively, they can opt to have their parcel delivered to a safe place, neighbour or DHL Parcel UK ServicePoint if none of the days available are convenient.

When you place the order, let us know if you are happy for the parcel to be left with a neighbour or in a safe place. If you are sending a valuable item, we recommend specifying that the parcel needs to be signed for by your recipient, as well as taking out extended contents cover.
