Types of Services:
Domestic (Shipments within the UK)
At World Options, we offer a range of shipping and courier services within the UK to suit your business requirements. These include next day and even same day services as described below in more detail.
Next Day Services
Do you have urgent delivery commitments for your business? There is no need to panic, the World Options online shipping portal provides your business with UK next day delivery services in a few clicks.
Compare timescales and prices from multiple carriers to meet your delivery requirements. World Options offers you peace of mind for those urgent last-minute deliveries, which are sometimes business-critical.
Require a more precise delivery time for a specific meeting, event or deadline? Timed Services give you the choice of express shipping services and ensures that you get a guaranteed next-day delivery by a fixed time.
You may prefer the flexibility of choosing a less urgent delivery time. This can often be the smart way of getting more cost-effective prices by arranging for your shipment to be delivered within off-peak times. Timed services offer you the best of both worlds.

No matter how big or small, sending Same Day items through World Options will keep your business moving. Items are collected within the hour of a confirmed booking and delivered to your chosen destination.

Does your business operate at weekends or do you need shipments to reach your customers out of normal business hours?
Shipping Services don’t just stop because it’s the weekend. Your business can now choose Saturday deliveries to meet the needs of your customers who require weekend deliveries. This offers your customers a high level of convenience and improved customer satisfaction.
Hazardous Goods Delivery
In the shipping industry there are many hazardous items. These include everyday household items such as such as aerosols, perfume or anything containing lithium batteries such as mobile phones and laptops.
IMPORTANT: As well as the obvious hazardous goods such as chemicals, it is possible to ship some of these household items to UK or international destinations, but we strongly request that you speak to your World Options Account Manager or the World Options Support Centre on 0330 335 8100 to get up to date advice of what kinds of hazardous goods you will be able to ship before booking your shipment through the World Options portal. There are also strict guidelines as to how the items should be packaged, please contact us before proceeding so that we can help get your items booked without any issues.
