Do deliveries come on weekends?

It’s a common question and for a good reason. Sending a parcel for weekend delivery was unheard of – especially Sunday shipping.

Nowadays, weekend postage is popular because it’s convenient, flexible and doesn’t cost a fortune.

With Interparcel, you can compare weekend shipping prices with our online quote tool to find low-cost courier services within a few clicks.

What is weekend parcel delivery?

Weekend parcel delivery means receiving a parcel on either Saturday or Sunday – ideal for those recipients who cannot guarantee they’ll be home during the weekday to accept delivery.

APC, CitySprint, DHL, DPD, Parcelforce and Tuffnells provide weekend courier services. Arrange collection from a home or business address from Monday to Friday and have your package delivered over the weekend. You can also book a Drop Off service and take your parcel to a local drop-off point.

Please note: weekend delivery is only available within the UK. We offer a selection of Express and Timed international services.

What are the benefits of weekend delivery?


Saturday and Sunday special delivery is handy for time-sensitive customer orders, essential items or last-minute gifts. Weekend delivery also means your recipient is more likely to be home, which is particularly important for parcels requiring a signature.

A choice between Collection & Drop Off

We offer a range of discount collection and drop-off services for weekend delivery. Most Saturday and Sunday courier services will collect your parcel from your chosen address on a Friday. You must drop your package off at one of many local convenience stores on a Friday before 11 am for drop-off services.

Timed Saturday services

Alongside standard Saturday sending, we also offer Timed Saturday AM courier services. These services are suitable for urgent deliveries across the UK mainland.

Inclusive transit cover

All our weekend delivery services include at least £25 inclusive transit cover as standard. However, you can purchase enhanced transit cover for extra peace of mind for high-value shipments.

What weekend services do you offer?

As part of our UK Time Definite offering, we offer Saturday and Sunday courier services from reputable delivery companies APC, DHL, DPD, Parcelforce and Tuffnells.

Can parcels be delivered on a Saturday?

Yes, we offer affordable Saturday parcel delivery services such as DPD UK Saturday Drop Off, Parcelforce Express Saturday and Tuffnells Saturday.

We also offer timed Saturday services like the APC Saturday By 10 or DHL Saturday by 9.

Which UK couriers deliver on a Sunday?

DPD is our sole Sunday courier offering the DPD UK Sunday Drop Off service.

The Sunday service offers Sunday delivery across most of the UK and is suitable for packages up to 20kg.

Transit times begin once your parcel has been collected from your chosen collection or drop-off address, which may be a different day if the driver has already visited.

Can I have my parcel collected over the weekend?
