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.
Excellent services on Parcel Monkey. I was thoroughly pleased with the Parcelforce delivery service to Lille. I couldnt do it on Parcel2go. Highly recommended parcel marketplace.
Excellent service and quick easy So far gets parcels to customers on time
Service was efficient but parcel insurance levels are obscene. 50 pounds to cover transport of a coffee machine, may be down to Royal mail as monkey is just a webservice
All went to the usual time period no problems I like their service its reliable easy to do
Easy to follow and so far arrives within 4 days No problems so far
I have had no delays yet On two occasions very pricey which was a surprise and went elsewhere On the whole its a good service
