Parcel delivery in Anglesey is easy when sending across to mainland UK as there are two bridges which provide a crossing. The first is the Menai Suspension Bridge which was famously designed by Thomas Telford in 1826; the most recent is the Britannia Bridge.
The main exports from Anglesey are lobsters, milk, cheese, yoghurts, pearls and sea salt, many of which are sent across to the mainland and also around the world. There were a number of mining plants in the region which have ended operations, leading to a significant economic impact on the island including copper and aluminium. However, tourism is currently providing a significant boost to the island’s economy, and is also providing a demand for people looking for the cheapest parcel delivery in Anglesey.
The position of the island makes it an excellent point of entry for those travelling or sending items between Ireland and the UK. There are a number of ferries daily from Holyhead to Dún Laoghaire and Dublin Port.

The island has an excellent rail network with six railway stations operating services to London, Chester, Manchester, Birmingham and Cardiff.

We know how important it is for you to be able to track your parcel, especially when sending something internationally. Your courier will collect the parcel from your home or work address, some are even able to collect from a local pick up point such as a Post Office or local shop. As soon as the courier loads the parcel into the van it will be scanned onto the system and the parcel’s journey log will be started. As the parcel passes each stage of processing, the courier’s website will be updated so you will know exactly where it is. This is also great for your recipient as they will know accurately when to expect their delivery.
Delivery timescales will vary depending on where you are sending to. If you are sending within the UK, many of our couriers can provide a same-day or overnight service. If your parcel is being sent internationally this could be anything from 3 days via air freight to 30 days via sea to the other side of the world. Any parcel which needs to pass through customs clearance will need an extra 4-6 weeks for delivery.
Prices to ship a parcel start at around £6.00 for a guaranteed next day delivery in the UK, to £30.00 delivery via air freight to a country thousands of miles away. The price will also be heavily dependent on the size and weight of your parcel. If you are sending a gift, you could save yourself a lot by picking something small in size and weight.
Parcel delivery in Anglesey needs care when writing addresses as many of Anglesey’s residents are Welsh speakers. The island is known locally as Ynys Môn, which can confuse many people when carrying out an Anglesey parcel delivery. The same applies in the other direction; if Welsh is your first language and you are sending to mainland UK, you may need to take extra care. If you are unsure, the universal postal union can provide assistance. It is advisable to include the recipient’s contact number on the outside of the parcel. If there are any problems, it will then be easy for the driver to make contact and arrange delivery.
If you are sending from Anglesey to a country outside of the European Union, you will need to include a customs declaration form. The courier will send this to you and also advise how to complete the various sections. The main thing the form will ask for is the contents of the parcel and its value. You will also need to include a commercial invoice, even if the recipient is receiving the parcel as a gift. The couriers we work with have vast experience in completing the relevant documents for deliveries outside of the European Union. If you are sending outside of the EU, there could be import taxes to pay so bear this in mind when choosing what to send.
When packaging your parcel, even if it is not being sent far, you should use a sturdy, stackable box with strong parcel tape. If there are any moving parts, secure these and wrap the item with bubble wrap so it is secure within the box. Even a small journey can damage a parcel if it is improperly packaged. It is advisable to include any documentation within a document holder on the outside of the parcel. Lost documentation is the number one reason for a parcel not being accepted through customs.
Depending on where you are sending to, there will be specific import restrictions you will need to adhere to. You will not be able to send anything which is illegal in the country; however, there are also a number of items which countries list as prohibited. This can vary widely and many items could take you by surprise. It is worth checking with HM Revenue and Customs what items are restricted in the destination country. The most commonly restricted items are weapons, ammunition, drugs, live animals, fish, alcohol and money.
