If you have a domestic parcel to send and it is essential that you use a drop-off service then it would seem that the domestic courier offered by Parcelforce may be the appropriate for many residents of York as you are able to drop off your parcel at the Parcelforce depot which can be found in Nether Poppleton which is about 4 miles from the city centre and just off the A1237 by the Bengal Brasserie and next to the train line on the Millfield Lane. You can also drop your parcel off at any of the Post Offices in York if you have booked a Parcelforce delivery to be sent abroad. Alternatively you can have your order collected from any address in York so long as a courier will be able to access it.

Comments from customers who have sent parcels from York.
Very good. Totally recommended.
In all the 8 years Ive used you there has never been a problem. Thanks for you????
I use Parcel Monkey on a regular basis in sending parcels to families in France and USA. On this occasion I used Parcel Force through Parcel Monkey. I was a bit disappointed about the time taken from receipt of parcel to deliver to France as it took over a week when 3-5 days was expected. Otherwise the parcel arrived without damage.
We are a mail order firm (books etc). We use Parcel Monkey regularly for nearly all parcels over 2kg. There seems to be a small saving against regular prices of ParcelForce or other parcel carriers. For items of value over £200 we use their insurance; the price bands are narrower and sometimes higher than for some carriers so it may pay to check final cost if this is an important issue, can be slightly cheaper to ship elsewhere for high value packages. Actually we have never lost anything with them yet, so no idea if the insurance works in the event of a loss. When using their screen display, not easy to save and re-use addresses for regular repeat customers, normally have to look up a postcode each time to complete the address. Would be nice to have an auto-save possibility for regularly used addresses without going to a separate screen to make a saved customer address list. We have set up for them to take card payments, normally OK, quick and easy. Twice last year their system was down and we had to use Paypal instead. Last month they invoiced us for one sending at £28.66 but wrongly charged the card £74.73 (ouch!). We raised the query about it and did get a refund this month. So, on balance, convenient to use regularly, it works well, but keep an eye on costs and charges.
Very reputable company with good prices. Cant complain
Picked up next day and very fast delivery
