That's exactly how we operate: we help you find courier companies that will collect from your home or office and then deliver the parcel for you. You can book on our site in minutes, all we need to know is the collection and delivery addresses and the size and weight of your parcel, so we can then provide you with a line up of competitve prices for parcel delivery. Find out how cheap we are here.
We have lots of people ask about this, which may be down to them being at work or popping out during the day. Our advice on this is no, as it can cause mix ups with couriers, it leaves the parcel vulnerable to go missing or get wet and it is always better to hand it over in person to the collection driver. We offer Drop Off's, collections from offices, and of course we can always rebook to a date when you are in to hand it over to get around this issue.
Recently we have added services that allow you to drop off your parcel at either a Parcelforce depot or a local Post Office. Not only do we have this Parcelforce service, we also offer a DPD Pick Up service, where you can drop into one of their 2,500 Pick Up stores around the UK, and save on the cost of this service when you book via our quote engine. When you do a price comparison, you will at first see a list of the most popular courier services and then, in other tabs, services with specific features - if this is something you're interested in then look for the 'Drop-Off' tab.
We list discounted prices of the most reliable courier companies in the UK who offer parcel collection and delivery services. There are obviously added benefits from using a parcel delivery company that provides the opportunity to have your packages and parcels collected from the address of your choice and then delivered to their destination in that you don’t have to travel to the courier depot to send your items.
It most certainly is! We have a vast number of eBay sellers that regularly use this website to keep on-top-of and book the cheapest couriers to visit them at home. When you send volumes of parcels each day, then it makes sense for the courier to visit you rather than take them all to one of the various shops that some couriers use - especially if parking is an issue. You can enjoy the savings of our courier rates as though you are shipping as a large company due to the vast discounts we offer on our services and we also have an eBay order downloader for your use on your account on the dashboard page. Any questions on using this? Let our Live Chat team know, and they will help you out.
We look to offer our customers, a one stop, parcel comparison site where you can find the best carrier service for your needs at a great price. We allow you to choose from a range of shipping experts, add protection cover to your item, track your parcels and save money all in one simple place.
If you're looking for a courier to "collect my parcel", then we're obviously the solution for you. We also arrange the other half of the process - the delivery of the parcel. We believe our service is particularly relevant for people that work during the day and would like a parcel collected from their office, factory or place of work. We also believe our service is superior to taking your package to the Post Office to be delivered if you're elderly, disabled or just not capable of leaving your home as the courier will visit your address and collect your parcel, for a fraction of the cost of booking directly with a courier or on expensive Post Office rates.
Likewise if you lifestyle dictates that you cannot wait in for a courier, you can print drop off labels from your account if you place a Drop Off service order and then take the parcel to your nearest Post Office or DPD Pick Up shop. We provide a handy store locater in the booking process, so you can find the most suitable location to drop into whether that is near your home or work address.
The key to all this is the saving you can make. We send so many items, that the couriers offer us low cost shipping rates, so book on our site, on our cheaper courier rate, print out the label and just hand it over to the Post Office, Depot or Pick Up shop. You will get the exact same service as booking in at the Post Office, just at a fraction of the cost due heavy discounts. Any delivery problems, get in touch with us and we will contact the couriers who we have forged long standing relationships with, to fix the issue.
Apart from the CIty Sprint Same Day Courier service, we do not have any couriers that offer Saturday or Sunday collections. If you require a weekend delivery, then you can book the relevant Parcelforce offering for a Friday collection. If you are concerned about being available to hand over your parcel, if you are out at work during the week, then you could use the various drop-off services that can be found by using the "Send a Parcel" link at the top of this page. You can check the Drop Off opening times of your local store or Post Office in the quote process, so it is possible to drop the parcel off over the weekend if the location is open.
Better than ever shipping prices. Wide range of carriers. Choice of collection and drop off. Global coverage. Collections in the USA. Improved Parcelforce and DPD tracking.
For years now, we have flipped the courier collection market on its head and given you greater control of the shipping process. One of the aspects of the traditional courier process that some customers didn't like was that they would have to wait in for a parcel to be collected. Sometimes this actually meant that they had to take time off work. But now you're not expected to do that. You now have some options.
You can drop your parcel off at the relevant courier depot or shop during their opening hours. During the booking process you can select the closest place to your home or office - or even if you're going to be out and about in meetings, etc. you can find the best one for your journey - that could even be halfway to your destination, and drop it off there. This too can help save you even more money, as you will see when you use the quote engine for Drop Off's going to UK and European destinations- as the carriers are willing to know off a bit more cost, as they do not have to come and pick up from your home or work address.
We are proud to be offering such a great service to our customers that can help them ship to over 250 destinations around the globe. We have some of the best prices on the market into Europe, whether you want the item collected or to drop it off. Ecommerce has driven more and more sellers in the UK to expand their business out to European buyers and we can help you be more competitve than ever. Likewise we can help you send to friends and family overseas at a fraction of the cost you might pay elsewhere.
Shipping out of the EU can be a headache, but we are online to talk you through it from 8am to 9pm weekdays via Live Chat and we also give you all the documentation needed for your parcel to clear customs. There should be no issue with your item being sent around the world as long as you fill in all the forms we give you accurately. We help thousands of people ship abroad so we know exactly the information needed, so use our expertise to make shipping globally a doddle.
Also, if you're looking to send a parcel to Europe or worldwide, then there are added benefits to using our courier quote system as you can compare all the options regarding size, weights and delivery times and alter your package accordingly. For instance, you may wish to add other items to it to take advantage of our price breaks - so you get more for your money. And why not? We're here to save you as much money as possible.
To arrange a courier pick up only use the quick courier prices form to generate some prices (or use the box to the right), then you just select how quickly you'd like your parcel to get to its destination if in the UK and then fill in some other information like where the parcel should be collected from, and where it's going to. It shouldn't take more than three or four minutes to get your package allocated for courier collection.
