Services developed with you in mind

UK DeliveryWhere are you sending your package, what are you sending, and is speed or budget more important to you when choosing a courier?  These are all important questions to consider when selecting the best courier for your needs.

To choose from among the household names that we work with (UPS, DHL, City Link, Fedex, City Sprint and OCS) you’ll first need to decide which of the following categories your shipment falls into:

UK Deliveries

From end to end and side to side of the United Kingdom we can offer the same set of speed or budget orientated services from our courier partners. You choose which is most important to you and let this be your guide when using our website.

  • Same-Day Delivery
    This is our fastest service for those “must get there quickly” urgent packages. Same-day delivery does exactly what it says – it gets your parcel to its destination the very same day as long as you are able to give us at least 1 hour’s notice before 3pm. This is a dedicated service for individuals and companies to rapidly ship those time-sensitive packages to where they need to be.
  • Next-Day Delivery
    Give us 2 hours’ notice any time before 3pm and we can have your parcel to its destination by 5pm the next day.
  • Time-Guaranteed Delivery
    For when you, or the person you’re sending your parcel to, needs to know when it will be delivered there’s our time-guaranteed delivery option. It’s a next-day delivery service, but you can select whether you want the package to be delivered before 9am or 12 noon (collection is before 12 noon).
  • Standard Delivery
    Our most cost-effective UK delivery option is our standard delivery service. Expect deliveries to take between 2 and 5 days to arrive.

International Deliveries

Next DayWe arrange deliveries to over 200 countries around the world through couriers that have become household names for the quality of service they offer and their dedication to their customers.

No matter how near or far, how remote or popular the destination of your parcel delivery may be, you’ll find our courier comparison and booking website the best place to find the courier and service you need.

  • Next-Day Delivery
    Much like our next-day delivery service to the UK we’ll need 2 hours’ notice any time before 3pm to collect your package but, seeing as it’s going a little further, we say that we ’ll deliver it sometime before 5.30pm the next day.
  • Time-Guaranteed Delivery
    This is our next-day delivery service for customers who need to know when their parcel will be delivered by. If you’re sending to the USA our options are by 10.30am or by 12 noon, whereas to major destinations elsewhere in the world the options will be by 9am or by 12 noon.
  • Standard Delivery
    We’ll need 2 hours’ notice and to collect your parcel by 3pm, but this more cost-conscious service will mean your packages are delivered within 2 to 3 days.
  • Economy Delivery
    Our most economical international delivery service will get your parcels delivered anywhere in the world within 5 days. Once again we’ll need 2 hours’ notice and to collect your packages by 3pm, but if budget is your most important deciding factor this may be the right delivery option for you.

Document Deliveries

Whether you’re sending a one-off document delivery, regular mailings or periodic/annual bulk document deliveries, Rapid Parcel offers the safe, secure and reliable service that your business needs.

Because we only use the finest couriers in the world you can be assured of a rapid, affordable and conscientious service, and because of our bulk-buying power and long-term relationships with our courier partners you can also be confident that you’ll find the best rates in the market through Rapid Parcel.

Shipment Protection

Shipment ProtectionWhile we offer free standard shipment protection up to a value of £50 we would always recommend that, for your peace of mind if you are sending items of a greater value, you take out our enhanced shipment protection which covers items up to a value of £2,000. We have an excellent record for the safety and security of parcels in our care but in the incredibly unlikely event that something does occur that would warrant a claim, it would give some comfort to know that you are fully covered.
