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.
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.
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.
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:
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

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

With over two decades of experience shipping packages across the globe we have survived and thrived through excelling at the basics, and being at the forefront of innovation in our sector. That's why we offer so many options when customers are booking a parcel delivery to Sheffield. No matter what the circumstances of your Sheffield shipping, we'll have the solution needed to handle it, and we'll offer it without charging prices that break the bank.
The Yorkshire city of Sheffield is built on seven hills and at the confluence of five rivers. Although it has a reputation as a centre of industry, Sheffield is also a very green city and has over two million trees, which is more per person than any other city in Europe. The economy of Sheffield has experienced a rebirth in recent years, to such a degree that a 2004 survey by Knight Frank named it the fastest growing UK city outside London, and the UK Cities Monitor 2008 named it amongst the top ten cities in the country to locate a business. Traditionally, Sheffield has been seen as the centre of the UK's steel industry, and to this day steelworks are amongst the city's chief employers, with Forgemasters being the largest independent steelworks in the world. Other sources of employment within the city include universities, hospitals, the city council and call centres.
Whilst we concentrate on things like working with the best couriers and negotiating the best prices for shipping to Sheffield, we like to think our experience and attention to detail mean that we offer the little extra features for your Sheffield parcel delivery that lift our service above and beyond any other. We make the same promise for shipping anywhere in the UK, so a parcel delivery to Leeds or package delivery to Edinburgh will offer the same plethora of features as a Sheffield package delivery.
We've noticed, for example, that many US online retailers refuse to ship internationally, which, in the past, would have rendered booking a package delivery to Sheffield from America simply impossible. We believe in giving our customers whatever they need, however, so if you would like to buy something from an American website then, for a small fee, we'll provide you with an American postal address from which your Sheffield shipping can be redirected. This is yet another example of the way in which we use our experience and knowledge of international shipping to make arranging a package delivery to Sheffield quick, convenient and, most importantly, perfectly tailored to meet the customer's specific needs.
For corporate customers we offer features such as bulk upload and corporate credit facilities , as well as the direct contact details of a named support agent to handle every aspect of your package delivery to Sheffield should you wish them to. At RapidParcel.com we like to think we provide the perfect combination of the big picture and the finest details.
