Shipments delivered via Rapid Standard will not necessarily be delivered to the addressee personally. The Carrier may deliver a package to the addressee shown on the barcode label or to any other person appearing to have authority to accept delivery of the package on the addressee's behalf (such as persons at the same premises as the addressee or neighbours of the addressee). When shipping to residential address, if the drop off location is in a safe area, then the courier driver will leave the parcel at your doorstep.

Documents Needed?

After you have paid for a delivery service within UK, you will be redirected to a page where you can download and print out the relevant shipping labels, i.e

AWB (Courier Waybill - barcode label) - Address label.

The above documents must be attached to the parcel. Otherwise your package will be rejected by the driver.

Restricted Goods

Goods travelling by 'Cargo' are subject to different restrictions to those travelling as carry-on luggage.

A shipment within UK is deemed unacceptable if: it is classified as hazardous material, dangerous goods, prohibited or restricted articles by IATA (International Air Transport Association), ADR (Euro-pean Road Transport Regulation on dangerous goods) or other relevant organisation. Many items which appear harmless in everyday use can pose danger on air transport and are consequently forbidden for transport.

The following page displays a sampling of common prohibited and restricted goods.


Packing Advice

Your parcel must be boxed and well packaged. This will reduce the risk of damage to any item during transit or any associated automated distribution process.

Please be aware the item is not taken by hand from collection to destination and will visit many sorted facilities on its journey. For that reason, you need to protect the items to ensure they make it from A to B safely.

The following packaging guidelines are recommendations to assist you in packaging your shipment:


Shipment Protection

When you book a shipping service to United Kingdom, you will be able to choose an appropriate level of cover for your shipment. We offer enhanced parcel protection for up to £2000 for a small additional fee.

If you do not purchase enhanced Shipment Protection, your shipment will be only covered to a maximum value of £50 as per the limited liability set out in our Terms & Conditions and subject to your parcel passing minimum packaging requirements.

Please note that the declared value for customs purposes is not related to the declared value selected for Shipment Protection. We encourage all customers to purchase shipment protection cover for loss or damage.

A Belfast parcel delivery service that meets all your bulk shipping needs If there’s one thing we pride ourselves on at RapidParcel.com, it’s that we keep things simple. We realise that, with the million and one things there are to do every day, the last thing you need is for arranging a package delivery to Belfast to be a complicated process. That’s why we use our years of experience to make sure that it isn’t.

Belfast is the capital city of Northern Ireland and seat of the devolved government, with a population of more than two hundred and fifty thousand people. In recent years, with the end of the political violence which afflicted the city for many decades, Belfast has seen its economy and infrastructure boosted significantly, leading to a large influx of investment and tourism. In 2008, 7.1 million tourists visited Belfast, drawn by, among other things, attractions such as Belfast Zoo, the Botanic Gardens and the famous Grand Opera House.

The perfect courier service for private and commercial customers It’s easy to see, then, why the demand for shipping to Belfast is higher now than it’s ever been, and it’s a demand that we at RapidParcel.com are ready and able to meet. Many people will wish to make just a single package delivery to Belfast, sending a gift or keepsake to a friend perhaps, and we’re happy to ensure they’ll get the best possible service at the most competitive price. Often, however, we work with business customers wishing to arrange repeat or multiple deliveries. We realise that when you’re running a business you want to keep the time spent organising the likes of a parcel delivery to Belfast down to the very minimum, and when you need to repeat the process on a regular basis then this becomes even more vital. Time is, quite literally, money, and we aim to save you plenty of both.

That’s why we developed our bulk upload facility, which allows you, via our website, to arrange numerous package deliveries to different addresses at the same time. Not only that, but you can subsequently track all the parcels you’re shipping to Belfast on one page of our site, once again reducing the time you have to devote to dealing with your parcel delivery to Belfast.
