Our Prices and Fees
Our prices are generally calculated on a per mile basis between the pick up postcode and the drop off postcode.
Jobs carried out in the centre of London and other major cities may be more expensive due to the traffic volume. Congestion charges, low emission zone charges and tolls are other factors that will be added to
We try very hard to be competitive with our prices and when possible, we always try to get the best deal for the customer.
Please note: there is NO VAT to pay.
We charge £0.95 pence per mile. We start charging from the actual pick up postcode, as long as its within an hours drive of our couriers location when they receive the job. If we have to drive for longer than 1 hour initially to pick up the consignment, then an extra £6.25 per 15 minuets of driving time will be added.
Example - Orpington, BR6 7EU going to Liverpool, L4 0TH would be charged at £244.
If it took our driver 1 hour 30 minuets to initially get to the BR6 7EU, then the total price charged would be £256.50. As a further £12.50 would be added to cover the extra 30 minuets driving time.
A vast majority of our jobs have initial pick ups of under 1 hour, but we are always happy to help those customers who are much further away, and only trust us to get their consignments safely to the chosen destination.
Please note we have a minimum charge of £25 for any job under a total mileage of 25 miles.
We are always 100 percent transparent with our pricing. No hidden costs or fees with us! The price we quote is the price you pay.
We accept: Bank transfer, bankers draft, cash, standing order.
