How much can we save on our shipping bill?

How much does it cost to send your own mail?

It depends on the kind of mail you want, but there’s no denying that most of us are guilty of putting a lot of thought into what we send.

In fact, it’s pretty much the reason why most of our mail goes through the post office, not through our bank account.

It’s a good thing too, as a lot less paper and postage costs is going to make for a nicer and more enjoyable delivery experience.

So what can you save by choosing the right service to send mail to?

Here’s a list of some of the services that will get your mail delivered in the shortest time possible. 

1. 

The postman’s box This is by far the easiest way to send email, and one of the best ways to avoid any problems with delivery.

It uses a flat surface, so you don’t have to worry about getting mail stuck in your package or even losing your mail.

However, it does come with a hefty price tag.

It costs around £3.50 for one year, or around $5.40 per delivery.

So if you want to get your email out the door quickly, it might not be the best choice.

2. 

Ebay and Amazon delivery service This service has recently been expanding its service to other parts of the world.

However it’s still mostly used by British customers.

This is mainly because they don’t mind paying a little extra for delivery.

As an Amazon Prime member, you get free shipping on orders over £50.

That means you could save around £4.50 on your package.

3. 

Express mail This offers free international delivery to all countries in the world, but unfortunately it doesn’t offer the same amount of service to the UK.

The UK’s post office has had to put up a wall in order to protect the mail from being stolen and delivered to the wrong addresses. 

It’s not cheap, either, but it’s also not a terrible way to get mail out.

4. 

Tunnels or parcel carriers While this service doesn’t provide any extra services like free international shipping, it is a great way to reduce your postal bills.

The average package will cost you around £1.00, which is a good amount of money for a basic package, but with some extra services it could save you around 10%.

5. 

Postage stamping service A good option for people who don’t want to send their mail by post.

It can cost you up to £10.50 per stamp, which will give you the option of a stamp for free if you choose it.

This can save you £4 per postage stamp, so it’s a great option if you’re keen to save money.

6. 

Personal delivery service or courier service One of the cheapest ways to send emails, but don’t forget to pay the shipping charges.

This service will deliver mail for you free of charge, with delivery times ranging from 3-5 working days.

However you can opt for the cheapest option of £0.25 per letter.

If that’s not your cup of tea, check the other options on this page.

7. 

Visa prepaid This can be a great service for people on a tight budget.

If your budget is tight, it can save some money on postage.

You can opt to pay £0 to send an email or £2 to pay for the postage.

If it’s your first time using this service, it may not be ideal for people with limited budgets, but if you have a good understanding of how much you spend, this could save a lot.

8. 

Couch to parcel service The delivery of your mail can be complicated and expensive.

That’s why it’s important to choose a service that offers the most flexible and effective delivery.

That could be a courier service, which can deliver the mail at your door or a private courier, which takes the mail to your door.

You’ll need to pick your delivery time carefully.

If the postal service offers a flat rate of £1 per letter, you could end up paying around £8 per letter instead of the £10 that you normally pay. 

9. 

FedEx delivery service If you use FedEx, you may have noticed that their service is cheaper than the ones listed above.

However there are some other options available.

For example, there’s also FedEx Express, which offers delivery to the US and Canada.

If FedEx offers delivery for free, this might not sound like a good deal, but the service is only available to UK residents, so they’ll probably have a higher return rate.

You could pick the delivery time from 1-5 days, depending on the distance you need to travel.
