Our website is temporarily unavailable. Full service should be resumed

Thanks for that (as the website is currently down)

I tried going to "price a delivery" earlier, but didn't see that as an
option. Is it like a form of 2nd class, but with free tracking? Are
there any weight/size limits

Yeah that's what I got when I googled it (the track and trace - input
your ref number page). It was obviously a new service for Geep to be
posting it

Thanks for the info guys. Nice to see useful posts re-appearing again
:)

It wasn't that Mike and I were getting at, I think. Track and Trace is
certainly a service offered for both Signed For and Special Delivery. But it
isn't a separate despatch method, afaik, so I wondered if the poster meant
one of ParcelFOrce's services.
