When sending a parcel for delivery, it is imperative that you weigh and measure your parcel accurately, in order for us to determine an accurate quote. If you don’t know the size of your parcel, the n it is important that you don’t guess. Couriers will re-measure and weigh your parcel as soon as it gets to the depot, and because of this, if the measurements are not accurate, they reserve the right to charge you an additional fee. This can range from £5 to up to £50.00 + VAT so it is very important to ensure that your parcel is measured accurately.
You can use any form of measuring equipment in order to determine the size of your parcel. For example, you are able to use a tape measure or ruler in order to determine the length, width and height of your parcel. To measure the weight, you are able to use bathroom or kitchen scales, depending on the size of the parcel.
If you are unsure whether or not your measurements are accurate, it is much more cost-effective to add on an additional kg or two, as opposed to being hit with a fee or charge.
