Delivery Options With Parcel Delivery

When using our services for your delivery, there are a number of options for you to choose from. If you are looking to send a parcel urgently, there is the option of same-day delivery. This will involve your parcel being picked up by Fife courier and transported. This is ideal for fragile items as it can be hand-delivered by your chosen courier service, this prevents the damage that is done to the parcel. T

In addition to same-day delivery, there is the option for next day delivery. This is similar to that of same-day delivery but not quite as quickly. This is perhaps more affordable than a same-day delivery service and can be used to send important documents and parcels quickly.

If you are looking for the most cost-effective way to send a parcel, standard delivery is key. This is the cheapest option for delivery, but it can take longer. Therefore, it is important to leave yourself enough time for delivery. When using a standard delivery service, you can expect this to take between 3-5 working days.

When organising all these delivery types, it is important to remember the variables that can affect the price. These variables can include the weight, width, length shape of the box. In addition to this, the destination that you will be sending the parcel can affect the price. Here at Parcel Delivery, we pride ourselves on providing you with the best price for your fife delivery.

Parcel Delivery To Fife

If you are sending an item that is fragile, it is important to label it. This can be done by using packaging tape. To secure the box, it is important to add tape to the top and bottom seam. This will indicate to the Fife courier that the product is fragile. Placing a sticker on the side of the box will help to label it clearly. An arrow can also be put upright to ensure the box is held the right way up at all times. This will indicate to your courier that it should be handled with care. IF you are sending the item a long distance by courier adding more inner packaging will keep the item safe.

Bubble wrap will help to keep your item protected without adding additional weight. This is crucial as this will help to keep the cost down. The lower the cost is, the better this is for you. Therefore, weighing the parcel before booking will help. This will allow us to give you the most accurate quote possible. The more accurate the information is, the more accurate the cost will be. This means there are no hidden charges.

In addition to labelling the box, it is vital that you package it correctly. The box is the most important part of packaging as this is what will withstand impact if dropped. If the item is heavy, it may then be worth using a double-walled box as this will hold the weight. If your parcel is heavier than normal there is also the option for a wooden box. This can house heavier items such as furniture or machinery and will prevent from becoming broken during transit. If this is the case, this will need to be disclosed to ensure your Fife courier can accommodate. This can then be discussed with them to ensure they have the means to carry out the delivery.

The size of the box is also important when packaging. There should be a minimum of 1- or 2-mm gap from the item to the edge of the box to leave room for inner packaging.

If you are sending glassware or electronics, it is important to wrap this in bubble wrap before placing it in the box. This will provide an additional layer of protection. Packing peanuts or air pockets can then be added to provide the protection that is needed. It is best to avoid crumpled newspaper at this stage as this will not provide protection.

When the box is sealed it is then important to label it. This can be done either by using a printed label or handwritten. This will ensure that your Fife courier knows where they are delivering the parcel to.

Useful Information When Sending A Parcel To Fife

  • Acids

Additionally, they can provide you with information on packaging and other elements.

If you are sending an item that is not protected insurance may be needed. This is for items such as Jewellery and electricals that are not covered by courier insurance. If additional insurance is needed, this can be purchased directly from your chosen courier service. This will ensure that your item is covered for loss or accidental damage. This is ideal for high-value items as this protects you in the unlikely event something should happen.

When booking additional insurance, it is important to get in touch. Communication with them directly will ensure pricing is clear. Though you then have the choice to purchase or not, this insurance could benefit you in the long term.
