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 great number of the parcels we handle at RapidParcel.com are commercial in nature and need to be delivered to tight business deadlines. At the same time, many individuals wishing to make a parcel delivery to Milton Keynes might want to have it delivered in time for a loved one's birthday, or handed over to a spouse to mark an important anniversary. It could be, on the other hand, that you can afford to be slightly more flexible with the time your package delivery to Milton Keynes takes to arrive. As is always the case, we're flexible enough to meet all of our customers' needs so when you are able to compromise on speed we can offer you a more affordable rate.

Milton Keynes is one of the most modern towns in the UK, having been built and designated a "New Town" as recently as January 1967. Deliberately located on a site that is equidistant from Birmingham, Oxford, Cambridge and Leicester, it was designed along highly characteristic lines, with roads built around a strict grid pattern. Alongside this highly distinctive layout, Milton Keynes was built with lakes, parkland and trees, which are still much in evidence today. Although many of the new towns built at the same time as Milton Keynes have fallen into disrepair in the years since, Milton Keynes has prospered and grown, and, though several attempts to be awarded city status have fallen through, the locals don't hesitate to refer to the "city" and the "city centre". Although the original plan for Milton Keynes stipulated that no building should be "taller than the tallest tree", in recent years the call has gone out for more so-called "landmark buildings", leading to the creation of several multi-storey towers.

Here at RapidParcel.com, we aim to meet all of our customers' delivery wishes and that's why, alongside our standard high speed delivery, which will have your parcel delivery to Milton Keynes handed over within twenty-four hours, we offer a less costly service for those who are more relaxed about the timing of their Milton Keynes shipping.

You'll also be able to access all of the aftercare that comes as standard at RapidParcel.com, such as online tracking of your Milton Keynes parcel delivery and a dedicated blog to keep you fully informed of the latest developments in both the domestic and international shipping fields. The only change, should you opt for Economy Delivery when booking your Milton Keynes package delivery, is that your Milton Keynes shipping will reach its destination within the slightly longer timeframe of 2-3 working days.

So, if you need to arrange a Milton Keynes package delivery but have some wriggle room regarding the timing and also wish to save some money, then access our website and book an Economy Delivery, a service that saves money without compromising on excellence, and which is available for deliveries all over the UK. So when you next need to send a parcel delivery to Newcastle or a package delivery to Cardiff think RapidParcel.com.
