Following feedback from customers regarding restrictions on parcel dimensions, from today we are introducing a new “One size fits all” approach to help you when booking your labels and to avoid confusion when using our service. This will allow you to be more flexible when packaging your items and allow you to ship ‘large & light’ items that don’t fit into a jiffy bag for only £3.99 inc VAT

Send your parcels in any size packaging up to 50x30x30cm

We’re also renamed our 3 weight categories to Light, Regular and Heavy, so look out for these when you book your next label.

New simple sizing to support your business –

As you no doubt already know, Royal Mail have recently announced a number of changes which effect parcel sizes. We believe that having sizing that is as simple as possible is key.

Neil Ashworth, CEO of CollectPlus

“The Royal Mail’s changes underline the need for small businesses and entrepreneurs to shop around for the parcel services that suit them best. When building a business, having a flexible and convenient way of sending parcels can be crucial. The new Royal Mail prices have not only increased in price but also in complexity when it comes to small business owners working out which size category their parcel fits within.

“There is a clear need for alternatives like CollectPlus, which operates from a network of over 5,000 outlets that are open outside of traditional working hours, allowing busy individuals to send fully-tracked parcels at a time and place that fits with their schedule. What’s more, we operate a ‘one size, three simple prices’ approach with sizing parameters that make sending a parcel more straightforward. We know that every penny matters when it comes to starting out so we want to make it as easy and cost effective for entrepreneurs and small businesses to send parcels.
