Worldwide Parcel Services Introduce Heavy Parcel Scheme

Overweight and oversized parcels are frequently problematic to get delivered. That's why Worldwide Parcel Services have introduced a new platform to cater for parcels up to 500kg using their usual delivery process.

Online PR News – 12-April-2013 – London – Worldwide Parcel Services prides itself not just on the standard of service of its normal next day parcel deliveries, but also on it's ability to go the extra mile to service its customers. Indeed to make sure that they can cater for just about any shipping requirement that a customer may have, they are now pleased to offer an extra heavy parcel shipping service.

Their service allows their customers to use their normal online booking system to book parcels of up to 500kg in weight for collection. The good news is that this is part of their standard system and an extra heavy parcel is booked in for collection just as though it were a 1kg parcel. Customers need not have to phone up to make special arrangements as would be the case with other parcel couriers, as to Worldwide Parcel Services dealing with such extra heavy parcels is just business as usual. They deal with all of the manual handling issues so that there's nothing to worry about. This means that their driver arrives with suitable lifting equipment to move the goods out of the premises with the minimum of disruption, and do so safely.

Many parcel delivery companies shy away from dealing with heavy or bulky parcels, but Worldwide Parcel Services have recognised that many customers do have the requirement to ship such goods from time to time, and thus they now cater for this niche in the market. Worldwide Parcel Services have researched this market and have ensured that all of their drivers are equipped with the right equipment to move such heavy loads and are fully trained in all the relative health and safety aspects surrounding the movement of such loads. This is because if the parcel is towards the upper end of the 500kg limit then a great deal of specialist care needs to be taken to avoid any injuries or prevent any accidents from occurring throughout the whole transit process.

Worldwide Parcel Services can offer a next day service for extra heavy parcels at no extra cost for domestic shipping, and as a result this new service is proving very popular in winning them new customers who may previously have had to hire a van and use their own staff to ship the goods.

Shipping such heavy parcels as an individual should be avoided as it carries much inherent risk, for example there may be a struggle to find the right vehicle, or even the right insurance cover, to say nothing of the health and safety training staff would need to undertake to move such a heavy load.

Worldwide Parcel Services remove all of these headaches from the shipping process as they do all of this included in the price, and whilst they are an online parcel courier they also have excellent help desk staff to deal with any queries that might be raised when it comes to shipping heavy goods.

This means that customers can have total peace of mind when it comes to moving heavy parcels and let Worldwide Parcel Services handle any of the problems that are normally associated with shipping such loads.

Worldwide Parcel Services are a UK based courier company, offering discounted rates on deliveries to almost any international destination, for almost any parcel size or weight.
