Relocation: If your department or Unit moves offices or buildings please inform Postal Services here.
(NB: please do not use this form for individual moves only departmental moves)
Postal Prices - postal prices are always changing so if an accurate quote or costing is required please contact the Post Room.
Saturday Deliveries - weekends are not classed as 'working days' by the postal companies. If a Saturday delivery is required this must be specified on the item and can be arranged for an extra cost for UK items.
Large Volumes of Post (Mailshots) or Very Heavy Items - Postal Services should be notified about large mailshots or very heavy items in advance. Please call the Post Room (preferably midday) and we will collect the mailshot/heavy item separately from the normal run. Please band your mailshots into bundles facing the same way and keep sacks light enough to be lifted with one hand (Max 10Kg).
Business Reply Service - this refers to the pre-paid envelopes that can be sent out for the return of research questionnaires etc. to the University. The University has licences covering this for the UK , thus you only pay for items that are returned. The envelopes used have to conform to certain Post Office specifications and can be ordered from Central Printing Services who hold the tenplate. please e-mail the Post Room for full details.
Internal Mail - this should be addressed to the person you are sending it to, with the department and building clearly marked. Acronyms are not helpful (e.g. not many people know where HAS is!) and just stating the College can also lead to confusion as the College may be spread over several locations. Please remember when using internal envelopes to cross out the previous address.
Internal Courier Services - if you need something delivered urgently to another part of the University or require a signature as proof of delivery we can normally help. Please contact us for a quote and further information.
