Dorchester faces a similar issue to many towns across the country: most residents are going use the internet to book a courier company to collect a parcel from them at their place of work or where they live - purely because the local options aren't that suitable or are too costly. Using the 'send a parcel' link at the top of this page, for instance, you can put in your specific requirements and get prices from a wide variety of couriers.
One new option we have is the DPD Pick Up service, where you can drop at over 2,500 stores across the UK, including some in Dorchester and the surronding area. Just print out the labels at home and drop off at your convenience.
If you did want to drop off a parcel outside of traditional 'office' hours then this wouldn't be a problem - if you can make your way to the north of Poole where you can find a Parcelforce depot which you can use if you have previously booked your parcel online here and received your label. If you sending your parcel abroad and wish to make use of Parcelforce then you can also make use of the nine Post Office depots within five miles of the centre of Dorchester. For instance the ones on Trinity Street and Maud Road will be happy to process your pre-booked parcel if it is going abroad. Alternatively, you could have either DHL, Parcelforce, TrackPak or our own service visit you and collect your parcel from you.

Comments from customers who have sent parcels from Dorchester.
Always use them always great
Another smooth process of sending a parcel to the USA
Easy clear website. Have sent 3 parcels recently using different carriers and all efficiently done. Will use again.
All seemed to work seamlessly on first time of using.
I understand that at the end of the day it is solely the responsibility and actions of the courier should anything not go to plan, but as far as Parcel Monkey and their app go, I cant fault them. It was quick and easy to book the service I wanted and to print the label myself.
Excellent fast and economic service with good feedback, easy to understand and follow directions.
