Sending lightweight parcels to Europe is cheaper and easier than ever before thanks to falling courier charges and the convenience of parcel “drop off” services.
Parcel delivery comparison website, My Parcel Delivery, is now able to offer parcel delivery services to Germany, Belgium and Ireland from £9.99, £11.69 and £12.50* respectively – and each with a tracking and guaranteed delivery signature service included.
The Drop Off service involves the sender dropping off the parcel at a local, designated drop-off point at their leisure. The parcel is then collected by courier company, Hermes, taken to My Parcel Delivery’s sorting centre and then forwarded by courier, DPD, to its European destination. This avoids the need to stay in all day waiting for the courier to collect your parcel. Nearest parcel drop-off points can be found here.
My Parcel Delivery managing director, David Grimes, said: “We pioneered the international drop-off concept in 2013 and are now seeing an increase of about 65% in demand for this very affordable and convenient service which means people can plan their day without needing to wait in for a courier to collect their parcel.
“The latest delivery services now put Europe truly on the doorstep for both individuals and businesses needing to dispatch small parcels at a reasonable price along with the ability to track their journey and be sure of safe arrival.”
