The vast majority of our customers will arrange for a courier to collect their parcel from them. This is available with a number of couriers we work with such as UK Mail, DPD, DHL, Parcelforce, TrakPak and more.
But sometimes customers have a daily schedule that means that they cannot be available to hand over their parcel and they would prefer to drop off at a local store or Post Office at a time convenient to them,
Dropping into a Depot often suits many people who are located nearby, and this can also lead to a saving on cost. Often these depots are sited in large conurbations, so if you live around Carlisle, then you are well served by Parcelforce. However, if you live in the more rural parts of the county, such as the Lake District, then you are likely to be better served by the collection services or add your Post Code into the Post Office or DPD Pickup Store locator to find a store near you.
We work closely with DPD to provide a drop off service so you can take your parcel to any one of 2,500 Pickup locations across the UK including in Cumbria. Simply add your parcel details into the quote engine and you will then be able to choose a local Pickup shop to take it to, meaning you can avoid having to wait at home for a collection. Just attach the shipping label we provide and then drop off. We also offer this service not just UK courier services but so you can ship overseas as well.
Below we have listed the depots in Cumbria as well as some others to help with urgent drop-offs. Not listed, however, are the many hundred Post Office locations that can be used by Parcelforce international customers who have booked online with us first. During the booking process you will be to see which are the closest options to you and then you can compare prices, convenience, speed of delivery and other factors to decide which the best courier service for your requirements is.
Many of our customers are familiar with dropping off at the local Post Office, so we have made our Parcelforce Drop Off option simple and easy to use. Place you order and select Drop Off, then just print the label off at home and take to the local Post Office or Depot where they will scan in the label and see it has been prepaid.
The main advantage of this, is that you will save on cost. We have cheaper rates for sending parcels than an individual can obtain as we provide Parcelforce with so many bookings, that they give us discounted rates for our customers to then enjoy.
