The Post Office are running an exclusive Drop & Go promotion, in partnership with Parcelforce Worldwide. Sign up to Drop & Go – the free fast-track mail service at the Post Office, and they’ll give you a £12 voucher to top-up your Drop & Go account when you send your first Parcelforce Worldwide item.
You need to complete a webform with your Parcelforce tracking number and your Drop & Go account number details and it’s as simple as that. You’ll get your £12 voucher via email, within 28 days, which be used to credit your Drop & Go account.
Parcelforce Worldwide services include any Parcelforce Worldwide express product for UK parcels, or any Parcelforce Worldwide express, priority, globalvalue or globaleconomy for international parcels.
Of course we know that over the counter Parcelforce prices aren’t the most attractive, if it’s an eBay sale we’d probably recommend using eBay Postage Labels which offer £13.99 for Parcelforce24 and £11.99 for Parcelforce48. However even paying Post Office rack rates, the £12 credit will get you a better price for a one off parcel.
There are plenty of courier consolidators who also offer discounted services and of course if you’re going to be sending parcels via a courier regularly you should open a courier account with Parcelforce or an alternative courier. However if you generally only have lightweight items to send and have need of a one-off courier delivery then this Drop & Go promotion could be just the ticket.
