HOW IT WORKS
The Express Parcels Service is the core of our business, no matter if its a small trinket or large machine parts we can get it there.
When booking your packages you simply require the weight, dimensions and address, it's that easy! Commercial invoices and certificate of origin aren't required for domestic shipments. For international exports the correct documentation is essential for a smooth end to end shipment, World Options simplifies this process; making it just as easy as domestic shipments and just as quick to process.
Once you’re up and running, it takes seconds to retrieve a quote to thousands of destinations across the globe. If you book before the cut-off time for your area same day collection is available. Once your booking is complete, you can download and print your shipping label.
Note: You'd be surprised to know that the Express Parcel Service for both domestic and international shipments can take heavy weights too, be sure to use our quote tool to find the perfect match.
To get started simply apply for a shipping account; our sales team will call to discuss your needs and tailor a solution for your business.
PREPARING YOUR SHIPMENT
Simply place your items in a suitable cardboard box, add sufficient internal cushioning, and attach your shipping label to the box. Your driver will pick up same day if they have space.
If your items are not placed in courier supplied packaging, please ensure that your packaging is suitable to enter a courier network. Carriers request that all items are encased in cardboard, in some cases the carrier will charge a surcharge if this is not the case.
Extra surcharges can charged if your items are in a tube or have a large volumetric weight, this is due to these items needing additional handling because they can't be placed on the automated conveyors.
We are more than happy to send courier stationery in advance of your collection, simply speak to a member of the customer service team or your account manager.
