Parcel size guide
We sell our labels on weight and maximum dimensions rather than size alone.
Parcels must be less than 60 centimetres on the longest length and then 50 centimetres by 50 centimetres. This is similar to the size of box used for a microwave.
They can weigh up to 10 kilogrammes (that’s roughly half your airline baggage allowance weight); simply buy the correct label for your parcel weight/size.

You can send packages measuring up to:
60cm x 50cm x 50cm and 10kg

Guide to measuring parcel size and weight
Sometimes, the size of your parcel is not immediately obvious. It's important to get the right dimensions to make sure you're paying the correct amount for delivery, and to check it's suitable for us to deliver.
Using household items as a comparison can come in useful when you don't have a tape measure on hand, so let's take a look at some of the things you can use to help you estimate your parcel's measurements.
How to measure parcel size
To send an item with CollectPlus your parcel will need to fit within our maximum dimensions of 60cm x 50cm x 60cm.
Unfortunately, we're unable to take very long parcels as our network uses a conveyer belt system and large parcels for example: golf clubs, fishing rods, upright vacuum cleaners may get stuck - possibly damaging your item and other package
Below, we've collected the dimensions of some of the most common household items. You can use them to help you estimate the size of your parcel, and double check it's within our limits.
