There are many advantages to using our services over Royal Mail, not least because they are simpler, cheaper and more convenient.

Our door to door delivery courier services have become a favourable alternative to the Royal Mail because you needn’t:

  • Wait in long queues at the Post Office
  • Be restricted to Post Office opening hours
  • Drive to the Post Office and spend time finding a parking space
  • Juggle multiple parcels at once
  • Pay increased costs to send your parcel

The cost of sending a parcel, convenience and speed are key factors to look for in a parcel delivery service. We pride ourselves on the level of service we offer customers as an alternative to Royal Mail services.




Alternative postage services to Royal Mail can offer more competitive postage costs. The cost of sending your parcel often depends on the weight, size, and speed you want your goods to be delivered. Opting for alternative courier services can often provide cheaper rates – a huge benefit to your bank account.

Royal Mail postage regularly increases the price of their stamps, meaning the cost of sending a small or medium parcel has also increased by 5p. Being savvy and using an alternative to the Royal Mail could help save you money when posting your parcels.

And if you have more than one parcel to send at a time, multi-parcel discounts are available on some of our UK services (Terms apply).




Attempting to get your parcels to the Post Office can be an inconvenient and unproductive part of your day – a job that is often squeezed into a lunch hour or when you might be racing against the clock to make closing hours after work.

Sending a parcel with us is more convenient, as it shifts this responsibility to one of our experienced couriers. Our parcel collection and delivery service, means our drivers will collect your parcel from your home or work address and deliver it directly to your recipient with flexible delivery options available. Particularly beneficial if you are a frequent sender of parcels – let us do the leg work, where other couriers won’t.

If you are not in at the time of collection, you can leave your parcel in a nominated safe place or opt to drop it off at one of our local depots. Either way, you choose the option that’s most convenient for you when sending your parcels. No worrying, no rushing and certainly no queuing.

Our parcel collection is particularly beneficial, if you are sending parcels in high volumes or a frequent parcel sender such as a seller on eBay who needs their parcels collected and delivered quickly.

Every single of our parcel deliveries comes with an online tracking service, so you are fully updated along the way – not something traditional courier services can promise.

So next time you need to send one parcel or more, think about how easy life could be if we came and collected it for you.
