Details of the carriers we use.


EVRi (the new Hermes)

EVRi (the new hermes)For smaller products we normally use EVRi (the new Hermes).

Since changing their name, the service has improved considerably.

EVRi quote 3-5 days from collection to delivery. Most items are delivered in 3 days.


Parcelforce Express48

ParcelforceFor medium sized products we use Parcelforce Express48.

We started using Parcelforce in August 2022.

To date we have not encountered any issues with the service and deliveries are made two days after collection.

Even when hit by industrial action, they have consistently delivered in three days.


XDP Express

XDP Express logoWe have dropped XPD Express as a carrier.
As they lost an increasing number of consignments, it was taking too much time to sort out.

We are searching the market for a suitable carrier for large items and consignments.

In the haulage industry, our large products are unflatteringly classified as "ugly freight".
We are limited to a select few carriers who are willing to ship our big products.
