Once you have entered the details of your shipment, we will show you all of our international services which are available based on the information given.

The service chosen will affect the price to send the parcel. The size and weight also is a factor; we use volumetric weight to determine the final price, calculated as follows; length x width x height (in centimetres) divided by 5000.

If the volumetric weight exceeds the actual weight of your parcel, the cost will be the volumetric weight price. We’ll work it all out for you, don’t worry – just enter the correct weight and dimensions of your parcel when getting your quote or making your booking.

How to send a parcel for delivery

 

Firstly, make sure your parcel is packaged securely to ensure it reaches the destination safely in the condition you want. Our packaging and posting support contains some top tips on how to protect your parcel. When booking your delivery, you’ll need to give the weight and size of your parcel so it’s a good idea to measure your parcel at this stage.

It’s so easy to send a parcel from anywhere in the UK with us – our door to door delivery service can be all be booked from the comfort of your own home, by filling in your details online using our super-simple booking form.

Arrange collection of your parcel from your home or work address on a day to suit you – you’ll also be given a collection timeslot so you won’t have to wait in all day. If you can’t be in on the day the parcel has to be sent, we can pick it up from a designated safe place or neighbour (you can tell us where the safe place is when you book) and our driver will collect during the standard collection time window.

Alternatively, use our drop off services and save money in the process. You can drop off at one of our 3,500 DHL Parcel UK ServicePoints from £6.90  or at a depot from £6.90  if that suits you better.

When booking your parcel, you can specify the cover amount to suit the goods you’re sending – as standard, we provide cover on UK deliveries to £25 and international deliveries to £50, but you can increase the level of cover as required.

International parcel deliveries usually require additional paperwork for customs clearance but during the process of booking in your parcel, we will automatically provide you with any forms that need your attention, so don’t worry.

And that’s it! In next to no time, your recipient will have their parcel in hand and you’ll be glad you used one of the UK's best and most reliable parcel delivery services.

If you should need any support with your parcel delivery, our Customer Service team are on hand to help with any of your queries.
