Door to Door
Royal Mail’s Door to Door booking system lets you manage your bookings online. Use it to create new bookings, search for and edit current bookings, or cancel them if you need to.
Door to Door
We would like to advise you of forthcoming changes to Door to Door pricing tariffs and product specifications. The changes will come into effect for distributions starting 30th March 2015.
Please be aware that distributions booked and confirmed by 6th March 2015 for distribution later in the year will not be affected by these changes. They will be charged at current pricing levels provided the distribution is not amended.
Changes to Royal Mail’s Door to Door pricing tariffs
Prices will increase broadly in line with RPI, on average by 2.5%.
Postcode Sector bandings
The number of postcode sector bandings remains unchanged at 9 sector bands for door drops of over 200,000 items. However, to more closely reflect the costs of delivery in certain areas, we are changing the band distribution across our postcode sectors from 30th March 2015. Any changes to prices as a result of the change to bandings are factored in to the 2015 tariff increases highlighted above.
All online bookings made before 21:45 hours on 6th March 2015 will be accepted at our current prices. All other booking application forms must be received by our Sales Centre by 17:00 hours on 2nd March 2015 in order to obtain our current prices; all previously confirmed contracts will also be honoured at current prices provided no amendments are made to the contract.
Door to Door
To meet the changing needs of our customers, we are planning significant investment which will make the Door to Door product easier to use and drive further effectiveness. We do also need to ensure our prices reflect our costs, but where possible we have limited increases for 2014 to below RPI.
Your new prices
- The price of a standard item weighing up to 20g will increase by just 2.4%, moving from £63.50 to £65.00 per 1,000 items excluding VAT.
- Prices for items weighing 80-100g will increase to closer reflect costs.
- The average ratecard prices will increase by 5.1%.
The new prices will come into effect for distributions booked from Monday 10th March 2014 and all distributions on or after Monday 31st March 2014.
Postcode Sector bandings
The number of postcode sector bands remain unchanged at 9 sector bands for door drops of over 200,000 items. However, to more closely reflect the costs of delivery in certain areas, we are changing the band distribution across our postcode sectors from 31st March 2014. Any changes to prices as a result of the change to bandings are factored in to the 2014 tariff increases highlighted above.
As well as announcing our new prices we are also making a number of small changes to our product, and these will be reflected in updated versions of the Terms & Conditions and User Guide that will be published on the website on Tuesday 30th December.
