Size & Weight Guide
Once your item's dimensions or weight exceeds the limits of any category it automatically moves to the next category of mail.
The Letter/Postcard rate of postage caters for items no larger than C5 in size (i.e. the size of an envelope containing a folded A4 sheet of standard paper).
Any item below this size needs to be inserted into an envelope of at least these dimensions to meet regulations. Failure to do so may result in the item being charged at a parcel rate.
Minimum: Length 140mm; Width 90mm; Depth 0.18mm
(with a tolerance of 2mm)
Maximum: Length 235mm; Width162mm; Depth 5mm
Items which qualify for the Letter/Postcard rate of postage must weigh no more than 100g.
If you cannot fold your items to fit this size, or they are bigger or heavier than the maximum size and weight limits, they may be classed as large envelope, packet or parcel items.
The Large Envelope rate of postage caters for flat items, such as an A4 sheet of standard paper, no larger than the maximum dimensions below and weighing no more than 500g.
Minimum: Length 140mm; Width 90mm; Depth 0.18mm
(with a tolerance of 2mm)
Maximum: Length 400mm; Width 300mm; Depth 25mm
Items which qualify for the Large Envelope rate of postage must weigh no more than 500g.
If you cannot fold your items to fit this size, or they are bigger or heavier than the maximum size and weight limits, they may be classed as packet or parcel items.
The Packet rate of postage caters for items within the following dimensions.
Minimum dimensions: 100mm(L) X 70mm(H) X 25mm(D).
Maximum dimensions: for a packet are a combined length, height and depth of 900mm. No individual dimension can exceed 600mm, with a tolerance of 2mm.
In tube form the maximum dimensions are the length plus twice the diameter 1,040mm with no one dimension exceeding 900mm, with a tolerance of 2mm.
Items which qualify for the Packet rate of postage must weigh no more than 2kg.
Items that are bigger or heavier than the maximum size and weight limits of a Packet will be classed as a Parcel.
The Parcel rate of postage caters for items up to the following size dimensions and is subject to a physical & dimensional weight limit of 20kg.
Length: 1.5 metres
Length: + Girth 3 metres
To calculate the Girth: 2 x (Depth + Width)
The maximum weight limit per item is 20kg.
Sometimes, large items with a light overall weight - such as a box of pillows - can be charged according to their Dimensional Weight. This reflects the additional cost of transporting light but sizeable items. It is recommended that you calculate the Dimensional Weight for every shipment that you send, then compare this to its actual weight. The greater weight of the two is used to work out the price that we charge you.
To calculate the Dimensional Weight:
(L x W x D) / 6,000
L = Length in centimetres
W = Width in centimetres
D = Depth in centimetres
A 10kg item, which is 62cm long, 49cm in width and 39cm in depth will have a Dimensional Weight of:
(62x49x39)/6000 = 19.75 which is rounded up to 20 giving you a Dimensional weight of 20kg.
