Many of our customers work during the day and cannot wait at home for a courier to visit them to accept a parcel. Others find that they just cannot inconvenience those on reception at their place of work to hand over a parcel to a courier so they would find it easier to visit a depot either before or after work to drop off their parcel. The parcel delivery company which give you access to their depots has a location in Reading - some half an hour away. Which is fine if you live to the south of the city or travel in via the M4 and can just drive up the A33 for a few minutes to the Parcelforce depot?
An alternative, if you are sending your parcels abroad is to use one of the main Post Offices in the city. They can be found On Stoke Road, Chippenham Lane, Church Street, Wexham Road, Farnham Road and many other locations. During the booking process you will be given a list of the Post Offices closest to you and you can select which one you intend to drop off your parcel at.
DPD Pick up is another great option with parcel delivery from just £5.99! Book a parcel on our site, print the labels and take to one of over 2,500 drop off points around the UK. This service offers great tracking, quick transit times and also if sending to Europe you can offer the recipient the DPD Predict service, meaning they are given an hour slot via text in their own language.
We also have a list of couriers for both domestic and international delivery that will collect your parcel from an address you specify. We have an option for people that wish to make use of the added convenience that the secure parcel lockers have. In Slough these can be found at the Farnham Road Sainsbury's or the Texaco garage, also on Farnham Road.

Comments from customers who have sent parcels from Slough.
I posted a high value parcel to Spain using DPD and it arrived without a problem. Very good postage price too.
Excellent service, will use it again
Easy, professional and the tracking was informative.
Im very happy with this service, the price was good and despite the collection and delivery being over the Christmas period, the item arrived on time.
Great service dropped off my parcel at the local drop off point (inside Sainsbury’s Store) and was delivered within a few days. Will definitely use again
