Residents of Bedford who feel they are not in a position to wait in for a courier to collect from them have a wide variety of options when it comes to the alternative. If you live in Bedford and are able to make it out to either Milton Keynes, Cambridge or Welwyn Garden City then you can drop you parcels off at any of the Parcelforce depots listed in those towns and cities. You can do this after you have booked your parcel with the companies online using the 'send a parcel' link at the top of this page. This will allow you to specify where your parcel is to be delivered and how big it is. Based on the criteria you specify you will be given a range of available services. For instance, you can drop your parcel off at a Parcelforce depot if your parcel is being delivered within the UK or abroad.
You also have the opportunity to drop your parcel off at Post Office if your parcel is being delivered abroad and you have booked it online using the same form as above. There are twenty-three Post Office branches within 5.6 miles of the centre of Bedford and they include the one in the centre on St. Mary's Street and others on Greenhill Street, Kimbolton Road, Iddlesleigh Road, London Road, Goldington Road, Queen's Drive, Avon Drive, and many others.
The idea of the depot drop-offs is that that, given the extended opening hours that they should serve to be a flexible alternative for those that work in or around those locations. An example would be Milton Keynes where the two depots are to the east of the town and are easily accessible for people that either travel in on the A509 or the A421 or can find a spare ten minutes to drop their parcel in before they get into work or on the way home. These depots are also open on weekends so if you're popping into the Centre MK for your weekend shopping then these depots should also be of use.
The Post Office branches are another layer of convenience as you don't have to drop your parcels off at the branches in Bedfordshire; you can also drop them off at a branch closest to where you work or near friends and family.

Comments from customers who have sent parcels from Bedford.
Next day delivery failed. Parcel finally delivered day after not at the agreed time. Not recompensed.
I had heavy parcels ~30kg delivered internationally from UK to Finland. All parcels were picked up seamlessly and delivered to the door on the other side. A couple of the boxes were in a bad shape when they arrived which had caused some damage to some smaller items inside but otherwise the delivery was great, and I will use the service again definitely.
It worked, my parcel arrived
Parcel Monkey UK helped me Send a luggage from Bedford to Canada within 3 days I was truly amazed. I will Defo be using them again as I had no troubles at all. I highly recommend Parcel Monkey
Excellent service from start to finish. Will definitely use again, thank you.
Parcelforce were delayed by 2 days because they had the wrong details and were incapable of picking up the phone to get the right ones Good price though
