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.

At RapidParcel.com we put customers' needs at the heart of everything we do. If you have to arrange a delivery to Cardiff, then you'll soon discover that our entire business is built around providing convenience and satisfaction every step of the way. Many businesses offer a single service which customers are free to take or leave, altering their requirements and the details of their Cardiff package delivery to suit the service being offered, rather than the other way around. At RapidParcel.com we provide a multitude of choices for anyone booking a Cardiff delivery, allowing customers to tailor their shipping to exactly fit their needs..

Cardiff is the capital city of Wales and as such it is the base for the majority of the country's commercial, governmental and cultural institutions. Anyone with business interests in Wales will need to arrange shipping to Cardiff on a regular basis, to take advantage of an economy that produces more than 20% of the country's GDP. The fDi Magazine 2008 list of Cities of the Future placed Cardiff seventh in a list of the top fifty European cities, and companies such as Legal and General, HBOS, British Gas and BT have their national or regional headquarters located in the city. One large driver of Cardiff's economy is the tourist sector, with the city attracting over 14.6 million visitors in 2009, eager to see sites such as the Wales Millennium Centre and Cardiff Castle.
