If you have either arranged the delivery of a parcel to a UK address or abroad by Parcelforce then you have the option of having it collected from your address or, if it is more convenient, you can drop it off at the Parcelforce depot to the south of the city, just the other side of Bamber Bridge and located in the middle of the M6, M61 and M65 triangle.
If you have a parcel being delivered by Parcelforce you also have the option at dropping it off to a Post Office in Preston itself or around the city such as the North Road Post office or the one on Plungington Road, Ashton Lane Ends, Blackpool Road, by the Cemetery, Greenland’s, Ribbleton etc.
As of August 2015 you can now drop off your parcels at over 2,500 DPD 'Pick-up' locations around the country - with ten within 2.5 miles of Preston's centre. The closest ones are the Aston Phamacy on Ashton Street, the Hughes shop on Ribblton Lane, the Halfords store to the west of the centre by the marina, and the Rowlands pharmacy as you head out, south west on the Liverpool Road.

Great online facility to select your best postal service option. Highly recommended ????????
Excellent value, better price than P2G.
Used Parcel Monkey after being let down with another courier company. My inflatable kayak and a separate parcel containing paddles and a pump were delivered via Parcelforce in 48 hours, much to my relief. Great tracking service and the price was much cheaper than if I had gone direct to Parcelforce due to the insurance of the items (£300 cover for the kayak and £100 for the paddles). I will definitely use again when sending large, high value items.
Efficient and quick order, drop off & tracking. I needed to send off a parcel quickly the same day, ordered online, the printing labels were sent quickly and I liked using the post office to drop off. Tracking done well. Quick delivery. Excellent price. To improve: the printing label is too close to the edge of the paper, risking letters and numbers being missed. Please move more in the middle as default. Thanks.
Great, efficient, easy to use with competitive prices.
