Parcelforce Courier Spotlight

By James Barnes, January 20th 2020

We're kicking off a new series of posts, highlighting why our partnered couriers are awesome. First up, we're taking a look at Parcelforce. There are many reasons why they're a customer favourite, find out why they could be your favourite too.

Collection or Drop Off, You Choose 

Parcelforce offers great flexibility when it comes to how you get your parcels into their network. Running a tight schedule? Book in your parcels for a collection the very next day. Prefer to stretch your legs? Take your parcel down to your local Post Office or depot.

Consistent Collections 

For several years, Parcelforce has been a popular choice for our customers' parcel collections, and there's no wonder — they have the best collection ratio. This is such an important factor to ensure your customers are getting their orders when they expect them.

With this in mind, it's no surprise that we receive the least customer service enquiries for Parcelforce-related deliveries.

Editor's Note

We have a dedicated customer support team that are on hand to speak to both you and your customers, taking away any ecommerce headaches you have. 

Peace of Mind for your Parcels 

Parcelforce's most unique feature is Guaranteed Deliveries. This means that if a parcel doesn't arrive at its destination within the delivery timeframe, we can give you up to 50% of the delivery cost back.

On top of that, Parcelforce has a higher standard cover of £100 – that's double the standard cover of some other couriers!

Your recipients will also receive a text message before their Parcelforce delivery attempt so they will know when to expect their parcel.

Quality Service 

Parcelforce drivers are always uniformed, for both collections and deliveries, so you and your customers can rest assured that you're being served by an official employee and getting their best quality service.

Your parcel recipient will receive a text message before a Parcelforce delivery attempt so they will know when to expect their parcel to arrive.

Perfected Pricing 

Send items up to 1.1m in length and girth for £7.95 or less, and for only £2.95 extra you can ship up to 1.5m in length and girth.
