Size and weight limits
for UK deliveries

a large parcel

For UK addresses, you can send parcels up to 1.5m in length and 3m length and girth combined – unless you choose our two-day large service, in which cases packages can be up to 2.5m in length and 5m length and girth combined. In terms of weight, individual parcels can weigh up to 30kg – but there's no limit on the weight of your full consignment of parcels.

International deliveries

If you're sending a parcel abroad, size and weight limits will vary according to whichever country you're sending to. Make sure you're aware of these limits before you arrange a delivery — check our country guides for everything you need to know about sending parcels to any one of our international destinations. Note that our two-day large service cannot be used for international deliveries.

Irregular parcels

If you're sending bulky or unusually shaped packages, bear in mind these are measured by the smallest cubic shape they could fit into. The length is always the longest measurement, regardless of the orientation of the parcel.

All large parcels will be fully tracked, so you can see where your parcel is on its journey — from shipment through to delivery.


We'll deliver large parcels to most UK addresses – but bear in mind we cannot guarantee two-day delivery to certain remote locations. For large parcels, an electronic signature upon arrival is essential — this also means we're unable to send to PO Box addresses.
