The cost of postage in the UK can vary significantly depending on with which carrier you choose to send. The starting price of postage at UK Dispatch, for example, is £2.19 exc VAT, but other providers start at higher prices.
There are a number of factors that can have an effect on the cost of postage. These include:
When ever there is a price increase on postage, it will most likely take place at the end of the financial year. That means prices can change around March or April.
Though Royal Mail regularly increase their postage costs at this time, courier comparison websites like UK Dispatch are able to negotiate with their couriers to keep postage prices low for customers. That’s how we’re able to offer consistently low prices even when Royal Mail prices increase.
