Expedited delivery is fast delivery

Expedited delivery is a fast 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.


Why use expedited delivery?

Time Sensitive Contents
Expedited delivery can be particularly helpful 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


Fragile Items

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 of expedited delivery 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.
