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.

I used Parcel Monkey to prepare a parcel to send to Jersey from the UK via Parcel force. The online process was quick and simple, with customs form and shipping label easy to print off. I dropped parcel off at the post office within 15 minutes of completing transaction online, and it was registered in to the post office database no problem. And, better price than buying from Parcel force direct.
I wanted to send a laptop over to France from the UK over the Christmas period so I resigned myself to paying a little bit more and also expected that it might take longer than normal to it to be delivered. I went down to the local post office branch, but they wouldnt do it because the laptop weighted more than 2kgs, so I had to go in to the main post office in town and was told that it would cost me £50 to send without insurance and would probably take about 10 days for it to be delivered. I decided to use Parcel Monkey as I I used them before, and although I didnt expect much as it was Christmas period etc, but it turned out the best decision. I logged in to my Parcel Mineky account, entered the laptop details ( weight, measements etc) the hit the search button and the cheapest way of sending it came up to £11.50 and would get to its final destination within 2 days !! And for an extra £5.50 I was able to insure the laptop for damage, loss etc up to £350. So I went ahead and booked a pick up a slot for the following day, I was being kept of its progress throughout via text and email . The following day I was sent a text with an hour pick up slot, so I was able to wait at home for the DPD delivery man to arrive, my parcel was picked up in time delivered within 2 days over Christmas period for just £21 including insurance. Fantastic service and I cannot recommond parcel monkey enough !
I had a road bike delivered from a friend living in the South of England. Reasonable price but not as cheap as some others. Quick delivery with no damage at all which is the main thing.
