Typical savings


Happy customers

That's a good idea

Secure Your Parcels

UPS couriers require all parcels must be packaged in a strong cardboard box with no shrink wrapping on the outside. If not UPS will add a surcharge to your delivery and we certainly wouldn't want that. Be aware that they also won't accept round tube parcels.

Printer Required

Make sure your printer is in full working order and topped up with ink as this service requires a printed label. While you're at it, why not print another and pop it inside your parcel just in case.

Dimension Checks

If you don't have scales and a tape measure at home, try using our guide to weighing & measuring. To make sure that you have no problems, we go with the motto “if in doubt be generous!”

Next Day Business

UPS specialise in delivering to business addresses and that's why they offer the UPS Next Day Business delivery service. The service offers extra savings if you are sending to and from registered business addresses, but additional charges will be added if either turn out be residential.

Be Aware of Residential Address Surcharges

Some UPS services come with a small surcharge per parcel if you're sending to a residential address. This includes residential addresses which are also being used for business purposes. Any surcharges will be clearly displayed before you complete the booking. 

Give us the best number

UPS require you to leave a telephone number for your recipient. Please be sure to give their number wherever possible so they can get in touch if they have any problems. 

Frequently asked questions

What are the steps for collection or drop-off?

Once your parcel is packaged and ready to go just print your label and attach it to the outside of your parcel. Don’t forget that you must package it in a box without outer shrink wrap or you risk a surcharge from UPS. If you need any help knowing how to protect your parcel, give our packaging guidelines a look.

While you’re printing one label why not print 2? You can pop the other inside the box so that if the other falls off the courier can still see where it needs to go.

What time will the courier arrive for a collection?

Collection times are between 8am and 6.30pm so be sure to arrange your collection when you are available at the address between these times. The window may be extended during peak periods such as Christmas – as you can imagine there will be thousands more parcels sent every single day.

When and where can I drop-off my parcel?

There are plenty of UPS Access Point™ locations so simply take your parcel to one that's easy for you (usually a petrol station or newsagent). The UPS Access Point to drop off at are usually in locations with extended opening times but if you drop it off early, it can get delivered even faster! 

Can I leave the item outside for the courier to pick up if I am not at home?

To keep your parcel (and you!) protected, UPS will only collect your boxed items directly from a person at your address, they will not collect it from outside your home – it’s better to be safe than sorry!

What happens if my item is too big or heavy?

The maximum parcel length permitted is 170cm, the maximum weight is 30kg and the maximum girth is 280cm (calculated as girth=length + (2 x height) + (2 x depth)). The UPS courier could refuse to collect any oversized or overweight parcels, or, if they do, they may be liable to surcharges and we certainly wouldn’t want that!

When your parcel arrives at the sorting depot it will be re-weighed and measured to confirm the size and weight are what was stated on booking. Any discrepancies could incur a surcharge so please ensure you have inputted the dimensions accurately. If you haven’t got anything to measure your parcel with then take a look at our guide but remember…. if in doubt it’s best to be generous with your estimations!

How big can my parcel be if I’m dropping it off at a UPS Access Point?

The maximum parcel length permitted for the UPS Access Point™ service is 80cm and it must not weigh more than 20kg. The maximum girth is 300cm (calculated as girth=length + (2 x height) + (2 x depth)). Make sure your parcel fits within these limits or the UPS Access Point™ may refuse to accept your parcel and we certainly wouldn't want that. If they did take it, you may be receive a surcharge when the parcel gets to the depot, so it's best to check your parcel is suitable to send first.

Again, when your parcel arrives at the UPS sorting depot it will be re-weighed and measured to confirm the size and weight are what was stated on booking. Surcharge can be added so please ensure you have inputted the dimensions accurately. If you don't have anything to measure your parcel with, just take a look at our guide but remember…. if in doubt it’s best to be generous with your estimations!

What are prohibited and restricted items?

Prohibited items, such as animals, furs and drugs are not permitted to be sent by any courier you book with through My Parcel delivery. Other items can be sent but are not eligible for compensation cover. These restricted items include car parts, glass items and jewellery.

You can view a full list of prohibited and restricted items here but if you’re unsure if your item falls into either of these categories you can simply contact us. Our friendly customer service team are here to help.

When will my item be delivered?

For Next Day Delivery, select the UPS Express Saver service® The courier could knock on the door any time between 8am and 6.30pm so please be sure to arrange delivery for a day when somebody can stay at the recipient's address. If this isn’t possible why not book a timed service? You can have your parcel delivered pre 9am and pre 12 noon Monday to Saturday with UPS Express Plus® and UPS Express® Services, leaving you to enjoy your day.

If you book the UPS Access Point™ service, delivery is in 1-2 working days and again the courier could knock on the door between 8am and 6.30pm so please book the delivery for a day when somebody will be at the recipient's address all day.

What happens if nobody is at there when the courier arrives to deliver the item?

If no one is there when the courier comes for delivery they will leave a calling card with details of how to get your parcel or drop it at another local business. If delivering to a residential address and a neighbour is home they may leave your parcel with them and will tell you this on calling card.

What do I do if my parcel is not collected or delivered?

Although UPS have one of the highest success rates success rates of any courier you can book through us, very occasionally things can go wrong and as such they are unable to offer guaranteed collection and delivery dates. Everything from bad weather and accidents, to road closures and heavy traffic can affect a courier’s route and their ability to collect and deliver on time. If this is the case, we’re so sorry for the inconvenience caused but, if you contact us, we will reschedule your service for the next available day.

What is a Residential Surcharge?

The residential surcharge is a small additional charge which applies to some UPS delivery services if the delivery address is a residential address. UPS define a residential address as "a home including a business operating out of a home, whereby the property or location is also used for private accommodation".  The residential surcharge applies to each individual parcel and you will see this listed in the total cost before completing your booking.
