On the 2nd of April 2013 Royal Mail increased the cost of sending parcels internally and abroad as well as increasing the cost of sending recorded and lowering their compensation levels. Royal Mail have introduced new UK size and weight guides, which has also had an effect on prices. To keep costs as low as possible to yourselves I am now using couriers to send larger parcels as this is more cost effective and cheaper than Royal Mail. If I can reduce postage costs by taking items out of its packaging and this is acceptable to the buyer, I will. Please just contact me for prices. Thank You.
