5 Ways to Save on Parcel
1. Packing your Goods
The smaller and lighter the shipment, the less you pay. Most carriers
charge by weight and dimensions, so choose a box to suit the size of
your item. Your goods should also be well packaged … they will be
travelling via a mass package transport system.
2. Express or Saver?
How quickly do you need it to arrive? If you can spare a couple of days,
and ship it on a slower service, you can save even more.
3. Right Delivery Address
Incorrect addresses cause the carriers major problems, and they
may make charges for Re-delivery, Address Correction or Return to
4. Out of Area Surcharge
If you are sending to an address outside the normal delivery areas,
there may be a Surcharge. Your InXpress consultant can check which
carrier covers these areas as a standard delivery area.
We all know the warning ‘Please ensure your goods are securely
packaged and clearly labelled to ensure safe delivery’. You can insure
your goods against loss or damage; but if you don’t pack them
adequately, they may not be covered.
*Check with your us what goods can be insured and the conditions of
insurance; and don’t forget to make sure that the receiver
checks the condition of the goods and notes any damage
on delivery, otherwise your insurance will be invalid.
