Changes to Overnight Services


Our overnight carriers have made a few changes in the last few week designed to streamline their services and increase reliability, especially on the timed services.

They have introduced some new size/weight restrictions and are enforcing these quite rigourously – here is a quick rundown:

  • Maximum weight for any individual item of 30kg
  • Any item over 25kg must be marked as ‘Heavy Item’
  • No more than 10 items per consignment
  • Maximum size for standard rate parcels – 120 x 55 x 50 cm
  • Larger items can be sent – either ‘Non-Conveyable’- up to a maximum of 160 x 60 x 60 cm or ‘Excess’ – up to a maximum of 205 x 30 x30 – -additional charges apply.

Obviously if you have any questions about this or are uncertain about any larger/out of the ordinary packages, please give us a quick call for advice.

Manchester Traffic and overnight collections

I am sure that any of you that have had the misfortune to have to drive around the city centre in the last few weeks will have been struck by the number of road closures and roadworks clogging up the traffic. Obviously this makes it particularly difficult getting around, especially during the rush-hour periods, so could we please ask you to book your overnight collections in with us as soon as possible. All overnight bookings should be made with us by 16.30, for collection by 17.00 at the latest. We can collect later than this (up to 17.30) but there is usually a small charge for a late collection.

Thanks for your help on this!
