Given the expansive and rural nature of much of County Durham the courier companies have located their depots nearer to the large towns and cities further towards the east coast where much of the country than sparsely populated rather than the beautiful fells and landscapes to the west. This means that many customers living in those distant locations may find it more convenient to book a courier to collect from them rather than take their parcels to a depot.
One drop off service that is typically available in these locations is the Parcelforce international list of shipping options. These can be taken to a local Post Office after they have been booked online and the label we will send you attached to your parcel.
