    For instance, compare 2nd Class Signed For with Parcelforce Express 24 (next day delivery). I sent out a 7kg parcel and only paid £10.49, whereas I would be paying £30 for 2nd Class. The Parcelforce process also includes tracking and Signed For (the parcel will get there much quicker as well).

    I was thinking of going for Special Next Day Delivery by 1pm but that was £30-£40!

    I'm confused but satisfied!

    It's just the difference in companies, may i suggest you try a courier next time as that would be even cheaper.
