We can begin our process by answering some common questions which will help to make the parcel collection and delivery process easier:
How much will it cost to send a package to Southern Ireland from the UK?
The competitive rates we provide here at The Delivery Group mean you’ll always pay the best prices on next day postage to Ireland. However, we will not be able to provide you with a definitive cost for your particular parcel until we have been provided with information on what exactly you are sending, its weight, size and volume. Once we have this, we’ll be happy to provide you with the cost.
You can generally expect to pay anywhere between £1.50 and £50 for sending packages to Ireland, depending on whether you are sending a small parcel that’s lightweight or a large parcel with a weight to match.
There are no requirements for customs documents when you are planning on shipping to the Republic of Ireland, but you should be aware of any items that may be prohibited or restricted.
Items which require a license or permit in Eire, or fall under the “prohibited and restricted” category, include:
For the full official list of prohibited and restricted items that you should not send as part of a parcel collection to Ireland, please see the page from the Revenue Irish Tax and Customs.
Fortunately, as the Republic of Ireland is a member of the European Union, there will be no need to deal with customs when posting goods.
You may also be pleased to note that even if you were sending a package via our courier service to a nation outside of the EU, our team would take care of customs on your behalf.
The formatting for the address system in Eire is the same as here in the UK, though instead of a postcode, they use a system known as Eircode. This is a unique, individual code given to every address, whether residential or commercial, and no two properties have the same one.
A beautiful land steeped in history, with stunning country landscapes and bustling towns and cities, Ireland is prime for industry and business of all kinds. Our professional team is always ready to make deliveries to the Emerald Isle, whether you need your parcel to be sent to Dublin, Galway, Cork or Limerick.
Some of the most popular locations we will take parcels to in Ireland include:
Dublin, Galway, Cork, Limerick, Dundalk, Sligo, Waterford, Wexford, Kilkenny and Tralee.
After you’ve signed up to use The Delivery Group, you’ll be surprised to find a range of fantastic benefits that will ensure transporting your items remains as easy, practical and cost-effective as possible. We do everything we can to keep our deliveries streamlined for our customers, and our work begins by always being available to help you when you need us.
Below, we’ve listed some of the advantages you will find to using our next day service, whether you need a large parcel, small parcel or even a collection of parcels in assorted sizes sent to Ireland.
As a part of signing up to our service, we will assign an expert account manager to you, and they will oversee all of your delivery operations. They’ll have full responsibility for your billing, customs and documentation. Alongside this, they’ll also be able to answer any questions on packages and parcels heading to Ireland, as well as provide advice that has been especially tailored to your business.
For example, your account manager will be the person to get in touch with if you need a parcel redirected from Cork back to London. All you’ll need to do is call them and explain, and they’ll provide a solution in a short amount of time. Your account manager will even be able to provide help through peak times, such as Black Friday or Cyber Monday.
Tracking may be one of the most important parts when it comes to ensuring that a delivery company remains successful. To help this with our own services, we have created a free, downloadable app for our customers to use whenever they are in the middle of sending out packages anywhere in the world.
After your parcels have been confirmed to be sent, you will receive a tracking number. This can be entered into the app, so you’ll be able to watch as your items make their way to their intended destination. This means you can sit back and not have to worry as much about your packages as they arrive in Ireland. It also means that we can easily help you to amend parts of your order, if any requirements suddenly need changing.
We also have a full in-house tracking network that we will use to oversee and monitor all parcels and packages being sent.
Often, the expected delivery time a company offers will make all the difference when a customer is picking between two similar firms. This is where The Delivery Group will show just what our service can do for your business, because we offer the fastest parcel delivery service in the UK. With turnaround times of 72 hours or sometimes even less (we can offer next day delivery in Ireland), you will not find a swifter courier to take your items where they need to go.
Our delivery options extend to pick-up points and times, so you can arrange for your parcel to be collected from any location and at any time you need. You can even set out specifications to have your parcel delivered at a particular time.
We will also offer standard 72-hour delivery on all items if you would like this, and we also provide proof of delivery on arrival.
