How XDP Delivery Works
To prepare your parcel for delivery with XDP couriers, begin by carefully packaging the items you wish to send. Most items can be parcelled using a double walled cardboard box with additional packaging inside, such as scrunched newspaper and polystyrene chips, to prevent movement and damage during transit. Aim to only use brand new double walled cardboard boxes. By reusing cardboard boxes, your parcel will be liable to damage, so it is always best to use newly sourced packaging. Most cardboard boxes detail the maximum weight load capabilities to help you decide which box is most suitable for your parcel.
Once your parcel is packaged, it is time to take specific measurements of the weight and dimensions of the entire parcel. It is important to make sure you measure the whole parcel rather than the individual items contained within. This will help to avoid any unexpected costs further along in the delivery process.
How you send your parcel will be determined by the delivery method you have chosen to use. Depending on the delivery method, you may need to take your parcel to the nearest collection point, or wait for it to be collected. Most XDP parcel delivery services offer to collect your parcel from you ready for sorting and delivery. With most XDP parcel delivery service methods, you can choose the time slot in which you would like the parcel to be collected from you. This allows the XDP parcel delivery service to work around your routine smoothly and for the parcel to be collected from you at a time that is convenient.
