Our Postable service

As well as parcels, you can send large letters and other postable items with us. By postable, we mean anything that fits easily through a letterbox.  

This includes items that are: 

  • up to 23cm wide
  • up to 35cm long
  • between 1 and 3cm deep
  • and weigh between 250g and 1kg

So, think books, small toys, games and stationery… anything that’s letterbox-friendly!

The main benefit is we can safely deliver straight to home or workplace and no one needs to be in the building to receive.

Plus, there are all the great features you’d expect from Evri including free tracking, 1-2hr delivery time window, delivery photo confirmation and more.

How to send

We have two quick and convenient ways to send Postable parcels – either take your item to one of 8,500+ Evri ParcelShops or drop it off in one of our handy lockers for a contact-free delivery.

Both options make it super quick and convenient to send your parcel. It’s easy to book your parcel on the website or via our app. You can either print out your label at home or in store at a ParcelShop.

How to weigh and pack

Use digital scales – kitchen scales are ideal – to accurately weigh your large letter or postable parcel. The price you pay to send depends on weight, so it’s important to double-check before booking a delivery or dropping off at a ParcelShop.

As with any parcel, take care when packing. Ensure your envelope or other packaging has no loose edges, is firmly sealed (use heavy-duty tape along any seams if necessary) and correctly labelled. If you need extra protection, use a hardback envelope or cardboard sleeve.
