Delivery options for returning your documents
Having successfully legalised your important documents we can dispatch your order to any address in the world. Within the UK we offer First Class Post with Royal Mail or a UK Next Day Courier. International deliveries are sent by Airmail or DHL courier.
UK First Class Post
Delivery by 1st Class Post within the UK is included within the fee of all orders. Royal Mail should deliver your documents within 2-3 days from dispatch. Please note this is not suitable for urgent orders and cannot be ordered for overseas deliveries.
Our Next Day Courier service ensures documents are delivered the next working day after dispatch to any address in the UK. We use different courier firms depending on your location and the majority of our couriers will email and text you with a one hour delivery window estimate. This is the most secure and recommended return delivery method for UK addresses.
International Airmail is an economy service for delivering documents outside of the UK. For most European destinations you should receive deliveries within approximately 5 to 7 working days. Delivery times can vary and we do not recommend this for deliveries outside of Europe.
DHL delivery is the fastest option for all orders being dispatched outside of the UK. Documents can be tracked to the door with most deliveries completed in just 1 to 2 working days (subject to destination). Ideal for urgent and valuable orders.

It is important that you choose the most suitable delivery method for the return of your documents.
We can deliver your documents anywhere in the world. Choose to have the document delivered to your home, your workplace, another business, your future employer, a family member or friend. If you are local to our office you can collect the documents in person.
We recommend customers choose either UK next day courier delivery or DHL for international shipments. Both of these services are supported by courier guarantees and in the unlikely event that a shipment is misplaced or lost we can assist with contacting the courier.
First class post and Airmail are economy services. For many document deliveries they are sufficient but they do not offer peace of mind and we cannot assist with tracking documents. If customers choose Airmail of First Class post they acknowledge the risks and accept lost documents cannot be tracked or replaced.
We do not have to return the document to your home address. Many customers choose return delivery to their work address to avoid missing a daytime courier delivery if selected. Alternatively we can ship your document anywhere in the world. This is popular for customers that want the document urgently sent to the authority overseas requesting the apostille from them.
If you would like to discuss the best delivery option for your documents please contact one our helpful advisors who will talk you through the services.
*Delivery times quoted are estimates. Actual delivery times will vary depending on the location of the delivery, access to remote areas, regional differences in public holidays and unforeseen delays.
^More than 90% of our UK courier deliveries are shipped using a courier that will email and text you with tracking instructions if we have your mobile number and or email address. The courier aims to predict the delivery time by providing a one hour delivery window based on their anticipated route. This courier will also allow you to change the delivery date, request the item is delivered to a neighbour or left in a safe place or collected from the local depot. This courier does not cover more remote areas or the Scottish Highland and Northern Ireland in which case Royal Mail Special Delivery will be used which has more limited delivery options but is still secure. During adverse weather we may use alternative couriers to try and ensure the fastest delivery to you. We can not guarantee the courier used for your delivery will offer all of these features.
