Drop-off parcel delivery services require the sender to take their parcel to a location where a courier will collect it. This could be your local Post Office, a courier drop-off depot or even a garage or shop.
You can drop off your parcel at almost any Post Office or DPD Pickup shop in the UK.
DPD drop-off services are called DPD Pickup and you can take your parcel to any of the 2,500+ DPD Pickup locations. They will scan your parcel at the shop and a courier will collect it either later that day or the following day.
You can find your nearest drop-off location for DPD Pickup services during our booking process or by using our DPD Pickup Shop Finder.
Parcelforce drop-off services can be dropped into almost any Post Office or to a Parcelforce depot.
You can book a parcel drop-off via our courier comparison service. Simply enter the details of your parcel into our courier quote tool to get instant quotes from multiple couriers. Select the drop-off tab at the top of the results page to view the drop-off services which are available for your parcel.

Drop-off services are suitable for both UK shipping and international parcel delivery. We provide any necessary customs documents in the booking process, so all you have to do is print them off and attach them with the shipping label, then drop off your parcel as normal.
You can still track your parcel in full with a parcel drop-off service, it will be scanned at the shop or Post Office and then throughout its transit until delivery. Share your tracking number with the recipient so they too can track the goods.
This is not an option, as you will not have the correct label if you booked a courier collection for your item.
For your parcel to be accepted at a drop-off location, you will be provided with a drop-off label to print and attach to your parcel. For collected services, the driver brings the barcoded shipping label with them to attach to your parcel.
You can re-book a new collection for the next working day, or you can cancel your order and get it refunded. You can then book a parcel drop-off service and drop off at your local store with the correct labels to ensure your parcel arrives safely.
