Royal Mail made changes to the way that parcels are treated within their network for individuals or businesses that send less than 1000 parcels a year. They used to have two maximum parcel sizes for items qualifying as 'small parcels', both of which we stock and are available on this site. They have now merged these sizes to create a new 'overall' size, as of October 2014. We stock the new maximum size as well, which is also available on this site. The cost of sending 'small parcels' in their network is significantly cheaper than sending 'standard parcels'.
The new stipulations as of 20 October 2014 for maximum sizes of 'small parcels' are the following (note these are external dimensions):
Maximum Length - 450mm Maximum Width - 350mm Maximum Depth - 160mm
The previous stipulations were as follows:
Maximum Length - 450mm Maximum Width - 350mm Maximum Depth - 80mm
Maximum Length - 350mm Maximum Width - 250mm Maximum Depth - 160mm
