You’ll receive notifications from us via SMS, email and push telling you from what time your parcel will be available for collection.

As long as the parcels originate from within the EU and the retailer you purchase from has a delivery option to Northern Ireland. However, DPD is not responsible for any charges on delivery – e.g. Payment on Delivery, customs duties etc. and deliveries of this nature will not be accepted into the Parcel Wizard UK Virtual Address.
This depends on the courier the retailer you purchased from uses for their deliveries. Once your parcel is delivered into the Parcel Wizard Virtual Address, we will deliver it to you within 2 working days. If your PWID is not visible on the package when we receive it, it may delay the parcel reaching you.

If your parcel is outside the Parcel Wizard UK Virtual Address weight and dimension restrictions, we will accept delivery and will contact you to arrange payment. Please note we will not accept any parcel that is over 31kg in weight. 

The maximum consignment weight under the Parcel Wizard Virtual Address service is 20kg and the maximum box dimensions are 40cm x 40cm x 60cm. 

If your parcel is outside these limits, the following charges will apply: 

€3.85 for first 20kg plus a surcharge of €10 per consignment plus 74c per additional kg over 20kg 

If your box is outside the size dimensions, please use the following calculation to assess charges (if your box is large but weighs less than 20kg, a surcharge may still be applied so do check!)

(L x W x D)/6000 = kg 

e.g. So a box of 60cm x 60cm x 60cm is calculated as (60 x 60 x 60)/6000= 36kg Charges will be: €3.85 + (16 x 0.74) + €10 = €25.69
