Expedited Delivery is typically the quickest delivery service a company offers and is often
priced around the level of urgency in having a package delivered.
EXPEDITED DELIVERY IS OUR QUICKEST DELIVERY SERVICE
Expedited delivery is usually our fastest delivery service, where parcels are delivered to
your recipient much quicker than the normal three days a standard delivery service offers.
All expedited deliveries can be delivered in the UK next day. Our drivers can collect your
parcel direct from your door or alternatively, you can drop your parcel to a local depot.
Parcels can also be sent via expedited international delivery, to over 160 countries across
Europe and the rest of the world.
EXPRESS OR EXPEDITED DELIVERY?
Expedited delivery can often be referred to as express delivery. How this type of delivery
is labelled is often down to the discretion of a company, but let there be no confusion they
both mean the same thing and both refer to the fastest delivery service a company typically
WHY USE EXPEDITED DELIVERY?
Time Sensitive Contents: time sensitive documents often requite our fastest delivery service. In these cases,
expedited delivery can be particularly helpful especially when sending time sensitive
contents such as;
Documentation: guaranteed next day delivery can be ideal for time critical business
documentation or personal documents such as passports.
Emergency Parts: in the event of machinery breaking down, we may require an emergency part
to get them back up and running.
Present: maybe you forgot to send a present on time for your loved ones birthday and need a
quick delivery solution to save the day.
Although our drivers are highly experienced in handling fragile items, you may want to send
them via expedited delivery to minimise the parcels time through transit.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STANDARD AND EXPEDITED SHIPPING?
The difference between the two is simply the delivery time. Standard delivery can take 3-5
days and is often a cheaper alternative – ideal if your parcel doesn’t have a strict time
frame. On the other hand, expedited delivery will ensure your goods are delivered as soon as
the next day.
HOW MUCH IS EXPEDITED DELIVERY?
The cost for our quickest delivery services can vary based on the urgency of the parcel and
also the weight. It does cost more than standard delivery services, but the added cost is
worth it should you need a speedy and reliable parcel delivery service.
