We think that the simplest and best way to understand all the available methods of sending packages is to review them one by one and offer examples. Below you will find the dimensions of the large package that they are going to use as a reference and they will see the prices both for national and international shipments with different courier companies and post offices, comparing web pages of shipments) and carriers that bid in online markets of transport.

Dimensions of the package: 200 cm in length, 40 cm in width, 50 cm in height and weight: 25 kg. Keep reading and check everything they have found. If they want to send a package in Greece, they can use Parcel Domestic service. The rates will vary depending on the place of collection of the package, the area to which it is going to be sent and the weight. For the Canary Islands, another service with specific rates applies. To send parcel to Greece this is the best deal now.

The maximum inflatable dimensions of the package will be of 120 cm x 60 cm x 60 cm and a re-shipment surcharge is charged in most of the destinations that are not provincial capitals, in addition if these dimensions are surpassed also a supplement of goods of difficult manipulation of 30% is charged the net size For international shipments within Europe, the price varies depending on the area and the weight of the package, for bulky and light packages, the value of the volumetric weight will be used. Keep in mind that the maximum dimensions allowed are 120 cm x 60 cm x 60 cm.

  • They enter the point of origin and destination for the shipment We specify the number of packages, the type and the dimensions with the weight and click on “get a quote” Let’s see what they get.
  • Unfortunately they get the same message when they try to get rates for an international shipment. It seems that our package is too big. Let’s see if with Parcel ABC they have better results.  Parcel ABC recently offers its customers a flat rate service for parcel delivery both nationally and internationally with fixed prices without importing the peso- and which vary depending on the size of the package and the delivery time. The cheap courier UK service happens to be the best in this case.

But in the case of our example they could not use it since the largest box they allow is 50 cm x 30 cm x 30 cm. They are going to use a web page that compares prices of shipments through different companies. We chose Parcel ABC which is the most popular in UK. Let’s see if it helps you send the package at an economical price. First they have to enter the origin and destination of our package and then the dimensions and they will click on search.
