We offer a courier service to customers who need to send a parcel abroad but who can't be sure where they are going to be on a given day and who may not be able to make it out to a depot. If you can make it to a Post Office then you can book your Parcelforce Euro Priority or other international services online with us to save some money and then drop it into a Post Office. These locations will be listed during the booking process but can be any Post Office, including the one at West Hill, or at Westbourne, Charminster Road, Malmesbury Park, Boscome, Southbourne Grove, Hambledon Road, Bradpole Road etc.
If you are located closer to Poole then you may prefer to take it to the Parcelforce depot closer to the A350 and A3049 junction,. This is likely to have longer opening hours so could be a better option if you drive through this junction on the way to or from work. This depot can also take your parcel if it is being delivered within the UK.
Also to the north of the city you could use the City Link depot which is located by the airport for domestic deliveries and may be appropriate if you travel along the A338 or the Ringwood road.
If you're not able to get to a depot or if you do not think you will be available to wait in for a collection then you do have the option to use the ByBox secure locker at AFC Bournemouth to drop it off at any time of the day or night and one of the registered couriers will collect it from there.

Comments from customers who have sent parcels from Bournemouth.
Everything they said it would be, efficient, swift, reliable and cost effective.
Sending a rather large and unwieldy parcel from UK to the furthest Eastern borders of Bulgaria, without spending a fortune, in the week before Christmas had the potential for disaster BUT all went well. Online ordering, payment, label printing couldn’t have been easier. Pick up was exactly as advised. Tracking throughout was easy and kept me informed and the final delivery to my village house in the middle of nowhere was perfect. Highly recommend.
Great prompt service from Parcelforce through Parcel Monkey! I was dubious about using Parcel Monkey again as I had the worst service from them in 2019 when a parcel sent with DPD through Parcel Monkey took forever to arrive at its destination in Helsinki, so thought Id try my luck with Parcelforce through Parcel Monkey this time. The service was impeccable! Posted on a Friday, arrived in Helsinki 6 days later, well in time for Christmas. Thank you Parcel Monkey. The moral of this story is, if you send parcels with Parcel Monkey, choose Parcelforce as your carrier not DPD.
Excellent service except when they text to give you a time for pick up, it gives you an hour slot, so I went out back in plenty time but they had arrived 10 mins ahead of me, 25 mins before estimated time slot. Had 1 hour slot the next day so didnt go out, they came 25 mins before slot. Why not give a 2 or 3 hour time slot so no confusion!!.
Excellent service! The website indicates the various options, and the whole process is very easy. Ive used ParcelMonkey for a number of Christmas parcels sent both inland and abroad, and theyve always been very efficient.
Always pleased with Parcel Monkey but not happy with my last booking which is with DHL delivery was booked for delivery on Friday 18th so rearranged for Monday 21st to find there tracking is still saying delivery for Friday so have rebooked again for delivery for tomorrow 22nd so here is hoping
