When measuring and weighing your parcel it is extremely important that you are accurate and honest. The length, girth, height and weight of your parcel are all used to determine the best possible service and best possible price for you. And here at Pharos Parcel we're passionate about ensuring you receive both of these!
I'm going to let you in on a secret; cramming an old crisp box with way too many items will not reduce the cost of your parcel delivery. It will simply ensure you receive an additional charge from our carriers and possibly give you the headache of losing the contents in transit!
Once you have done this, place the parcel on the ground or another flat surface and you should see that there are no bulges, tears, holes or gaps in the side panels or box edges.
From here, you are ready to measure and weigh. Here are some important points to remember.
As above, please don't be tempted to tell us a set of iron cast pans weighs 3kg! The weight of a parcel will determine how it is carried and this is important both for your goods and for the backs of the delivery drivers across the globe who do such a great job for all of us!
Ready To Weigh:
Our website will use this information to produce your parcel's volumetric weight. This will give you the best possible choice of services and prices from our courier partners

I do not send parcels very often to my daughter in rural France but when I do I have always been extremely satisfied with your services and she likewise on the receiving end. If she has been out there has been great communication as to when the paracel would be re delivered or where she can collect...
