We know that not all people and businesses have the same needs when it comes to sending and receiving freight. So we’re delighted to now be able to offer our customers plenty of choices and a variety of services to suit their requirements.
Our new range of Delivery Choices includes our no-frills Authority to Leave delivery service, and our value-added Standard delivery and Signature delivery services. Together with our collections, return and international delivery services, these Delivery Choices give you the freedom to send and receive the way it best suits you.
Below you’ll find more information on our Delivery Choices, as well as a handy comparison tool.
The Authority to Leave delivery is our basic, no-frills service. As part of this service, the courier will leave the parcel in a safe place at the delivery address if available. If unable to leave in a safe place, the parcel will be directed to the nearest Parcel Connect agent or back to the local depot. The receiver will be notified via the tracking page.
For Standard deliveries, couriers will obtain a signature from the receiver when possible. If the receiver is unavailable they will leave the parcel in a safe place at the delivery address if available. If unable to leave in a safe place, the parcel will be directed to the nearest Parcel Connect agent or back to the local depot. The receiver will be notified via the tracking page.
Our Signature delivery service requires our couriers to obtain a signature from the receiver. If that’s not possible, the parcel will be redirected to the nearest Parcel Connect agent. The customer will be notified where to collect their item from by SMS or email.
(Please note, we have a contact-free delivery protocol in place for all Signature service deliveries during COVID-19)
