Guide to measuring parcel size and weight
Sometimes, the size of your parcel is not immediately obvious. It's important to get the right dimensions to make sure it's suitable for us to return.
Using household items as a comparison can come in useful when you don't have a tape measure on hand, so let's take a look at some of the things you can use to help you estimate your parcel's measurements.
How to measure parcel size
To create a Return to Yodel Store your parcel will need to fit within our maximum dimensions of 60cm x 50cm x 50cm.
Unfortunately, we're unable to take very long parcels as our network uses a conveyer belt system and large parcels for example: golf clubs, fishing rods, upright vacuum cleaners may get stuck - possibly damaging your item and other package
Below, we've collected the dimensions of some of the most common household items. You can use them to help you estimate the size of your parcel, and double check it's within our limits.
