Customers can buy online and Parcelforce Worldwide will collect the parcel from a home or business address; or customers can drop their parcels off at a local depot. Parcels can be up to 2.5 metres in length. The length and width combined should not exceed more than 5 metres. Individual parcels can weigh up to 30kg but there is no weight limit for the full consignment of parcels.
Each large parcel is fully tracked, so that customers can check the progress of their items through to delivery. Large parcels can be sent direct to the recipient, or picked up from their local depot.
Under the new service, parcels can be collected from customers the same day depending on the time of day the service is booked. Parcelforce Worldwide offers large parcel delivery services to the majority of UK destinations (see here: https://www.parcelforce.com/help-and-advice/sending/postcode-exceptions-uk-zones).
A spokesperson from Parcelforce Worldwide said “The launch of express24large aims to make it faster and more convenient to send and receive larger items via our parcel delivery service. At Parcelforce Worldwide, we are constantly looking to innovate and expand our services to cater to the needs of our customers.”
