Customers who have booked either domestic or international parcel delivery via Parcelforce have a fantastic array of drop-off options. These services allow you to take your parcel to any Post Office and hand over your pre-paid package for processing.
There are a multitude of choices in the area including the South End Sub Post Office, the one at 10 High Street, Mitcham Road, Waddon, Highview, Addiscombe and on Wickham Road.
So if you commute into the centre of London during opening hours, you can drop your parcel off at one of many on your route to the tube or train station. Alternatively you can choose one of many Post Offices in the centre of London itself. If you work or shop in Croydon, then the list of Post Offices below will help with your immediate needs.
You can have your package collected from your home or work address, as well as taking it to the depot in Mitcham, to the one by Dartford if you're on your way to the Bluewater shopping centre.
Another option would be to use the DPD service which allows you to take your packages to any of the ten retail stores around the town. When you have booked your parcel to be shipped via DPD and dropped it off at the shop it will be either collected by the courier. Some of the larger points may have collections at the weekend as well - at no extra charge. The price starts at a very respectable £5.99+vat and is the same for packages up to 20kg. There will be restrictions on the size, height and width, however.
To get an accurate price you can use the 'Send a Parcel' button above - which will also show other courier options.
There is also a cluster of four DPD Pick Up Shop options between Addiscombe and Thronton Heath. Such as the Croychem pharmacy on Lower Addiscombe Road, a Londis on Selhurst Road, a Larchwood Pharmacy also on Lower Addiscombe Road and at the Woodside Store on Woodside Green.

Comments from customers who have sent parcels from Croydon.
Brilliant service. International Parcel arrived in 3 days and half the price of other services
This is the 2nd time I have used this company , the only hickup - which is with all of us - was the fact of COVID 19 was affecting everything world wide and this was no exception ... The good news is the package arrived in Destination Country with NO reported problems , delivery to the address was finalised BUT to be signed for as the ADDRESSEE WAS NOT AVAILABLE = NO PROBLEM / ONE DAY LATER his daughter signed for the package and all is well ... Easy to recommend this GREAT BRITISH COMPANY and when necessary will be using them again ... many thanks AL
Fair selection of quotes. Prompt service. Delivery arrived in Singapore as promised.
It was quick and efficient service.
Easy to use, competitive prices offered. I printed the return label and dropped it off at the local post office and the parcel was delivered a few days later. Will use it again in the future.
ordered a collection for an item i sold on ebay... DHL collection/delivery was painless and great value!
