UK Services

We offer a range of different postal services. It is important to remember that the weight of your parcel will affect the cost of postage. You can pay by cash, cheque (with bankers ID and student ID) or credit card (with ID)-there is a 1.76% charge for using a card.


How your post should look:

  1. Make sure the address is clear and written in the middle of your envelope or parcel.
  2. Do not use Sellotape on the front of post as it can interfere with our franking ink.
  3. To ensure your always get your mail back if it is not deliverable, include a return address on the back of your letter or parcel.

UK postage prices: First and second class
