What Are the Alternatives to Royal Mail for Sending Letters?

You might have noticed the steady rise in postal costs over the last few years. If your business posts any form of correspondence on a regular basis, you may find it frustrating that you are being put out of pocket, especially if you have used the same service for years. But the fact is that as Royal Mail is no longer the only postage and courier service in the UK; there are many alternatives. Let’s show you how to save on postal costs for your business by using a variety of other options to the Royal Mail for letters.

How Can Using a Mailing House Like Snapmail Save Money on Letters?

If you are using Royal Mail to send your letters, it’s essential to realise that they have specific prices. If you are sending a bulk of letters, each letter has a cost. They do not offer discounts for bulk sending. And this is where outsourcing your letter postage to a mailing house can give you an advantage. 

With the high volume of mail that we send out at Snapmail, we can offer much lower postage rates than the standard rates. By taking advantage of us, we can provide you with a more cost-effective method of posting, especially if you are used to the Royal Mail. If you thought that Royal Mail was the only way to send your postage, as you can see, there are a variety of options at your disposal. 

With us, Snapmail arranges a one-off or daily collection from your business without any extra charge. In addition, our bulk postage discounts mean you save money across the board, so if you post packets, parcels, and letters on a regular basis, you will save money in the long run. 

We also provide you with recorded delivery options for UK and international deliveries. As postage prices increase every year by the Royal Mail, it proves frustrating to budget your business properly. Sending out postage should come with one simple cost. This is where customers come to us to save money. If you are looking for an alternative to the Royal Mail, this is where we come in.

How Does it Work? 

If you use this as a Royal Mail alternative, you are getting the best possible chance of saving money. Let’s show you how it works at Snapmail:

When we collect your mail from your address, we return it to one of our sortation depots and mailing houses. We sort your mail, and along with millions of other letters and parcels. 

After we sort and consolidate your mail, we pass it over to the Royal Mail. While you may think that us passing it to the Royal Mail means that it goes to them anyway, because we pre-sorted for them, the Royal Mail provides us with cheaper rates. Therefore, you, the customer, benefit as we pass the affordable rates on to you. 

While the Royal Mail delivers your parcels, it’s important to remember that we are significantly reducing their workload, and they compensate us with cheaper rates, but this means you benefit in the long run.
