We have a range of delivery services available if you'd like to deliver a parcel to Mid Glamorgan - take a look below.
Mid Glamorgan is one of the preserved counties of Wales. With an area of more than 750 square kilometres and a population of more than 420,000, it commands a fair demand for parcel delivery. Wales only has five cities, and none of them are located in Mid Glamorgan, making it a very rural county, bordered with Monmouthshire and Cermarthenshire. The northern part of Mid Glamorgan houses a section of the Brecon Beacons. Addresses inside this British National Park can be more remote and difficult to access, with steep, narrow roads which are not built for heavy transit vehicles. The largest towns of Bridgend, Merthyr Tydfil and Rhondda Cynon Taf are the largest hubs for parcel delivery Mid Glamorgan, but of course all of the smaller towns and villages in the area need access to cheap parcel delivery too, such as Maesteg and Caerphilly.
Helpfully, Bridgend is just 18 miles from Cardiff, the capital and largest city in Wales. This means that the county of Mid Glamorgan benefits from the large depots and parcel delivery hubs used to serve the capital and the surrounding areas, even if the county itself does not have its own facilities. Vans are used as well as lorries, with these smaller vehicles being able to access even the smallest of villages, unnavigable to large lorries. This means that cheap, reliable and fast services are always accessible for parcel delivery in Mid Glamorgan, so the cheapest parcel delivery in Mid Glamorgan is much more in reach!
Even deliveries to the heart of rural Wales are still protected by the fast, efficient and reliable services which are offered to the rest of the United Kingdom. Cheap parcel delivery in Mid Glamorgan starts at just £4.50 (excl. VAT) to send a document or small package to another address in the United Kingdom. This even includes some next-day delivery services.
Finding the cheapest parcel delivery in Mid Glamorgan to Europe could cost as little as £10.10 (excl. VAT). Border controls and differing customs regulations makes delivery to Europe a little more complicated that delivering a parcel to another UK address, and for this reason European delivery can take between 2 and 5 days.
International delivery to the USA starts at the bargain price of just £16.44, which includes a next-day delivery service. Parcel Delivery to the USA is not subject to VAT, so the prices you see are the prices you have to pay.

What can you expect with your Mid Glamorgan parcel delivery
When looking at parcel delivery in Mid Glamorgan, you can expect a high level of service with every package delivered. Included with every delivery is access to a telephone helpline to answer any of your questions, loyalty points on a rewards scheme which you can save up for discounts and offers, insurance to protect items of value or of a sensitive nature, up-to-date tracking information which allows you to see where your parcel is in real time and ensuring that a signature is received on delivery to let you know that your parcel arrived safely at its destination.
In addition to all of these services, you can opt to upgrade your parcel delivery in Mid Glamorgan and pay extra to have your parcel picked up by a courier driver directly from your home or office address. You can choose to have this as a same day delivery service, or pay slightly less to schedule a pick-up on a later date. Some couriers charge a small fee to deliver a parcel to a residential address, so if you trying to send something to someone’s home, make sure that you check what’s included in your quote.
There are quite a few things that you need to remember to do before making the most of cheap parcel delivery in Mid Glamorgan.
Pack your items securely
Firstly, before you weigh and measure your parcel for delivery, make sure that you have packed the items inside safely. If they are inside a box or a jiffy bag, make sure that your items aren’t able to move around inside. The more the items can move, the more they are likely to get damaged on their journey to their destination.
Check that there are enough layers of protection around your items, even if they are unable to move inside their packaging. As a general guide, if an item is fragile then you should not be able to feel the surface through the padding. If in doubt, add more layers. It is much easier to add more protection to your items before you send them than it is to repair them if they break in transit.
It is important to do this step first as the packaging can weigh a surprising amount. Measuring and weighing your items before you have securely packaged them will give you inaccurate figures which could distort the quotes you are given for your cheap parcel delivery in Mid Glamorgan.
Measure your parcel accurately
When you enter the dimensions and weight of your parcels, make sure that they are the accurate figures and that you are not just estimating the size and weight of the packages. Make your measurements as precise and accurate as possible so that the quotes you are given are correct and so as to avoid additional fees and problems with delivery further down the line.
Print your documents
Before you drop off your package or have it picked up for parcel delivery in Mid Glamorgan, make sure that you have printed all of the necessary delivery documents and attached them to the parcels where required. Quotes for parcel delivery will clearly state if you will be required to print your own documents in advance, so you will have plenty of time to find a printer to use if you don’t have easy access to one. There are some quotations which don’t require printed documents which you may be able to opt for if you do not have printer access.
