Edinburgh is particularly well-served for post Officse with many in the city centre itself and others in Stockbridge, Morningside, Newington, Leith, Murrayfield, South Gyle and Portabello. This will be particularly handy for those customers that work during the day and may not be able to arrange a courier to collect from their work. Currently you can only send international parcels from the Post Office that you have booked online with us. Alternatively you could use the Parcelforce depot by Edinburgh Park train station and by the junctions of the M8 and hte A71 with the The City of Edinburgh By-Pass. This depot can accept both parcels for abroad and those staying within the UK.

There other options available should you not want to drop your parcel at either a Post Office or depot. You could have them collected from your office, home or place of work. This option is available at virtually all addresses in the UK and all you need to do is select the particular collection service you wish to use during the booking process. We also have a range of international options which can only be booked by arranging a courier collection.
If you wanted to book a timed service such as early mornings or on a Saturday then we have these options available to you too.
The process of booking a courier collection or drop-off is incredibly simple. If your parcel is being collected then we will need an address where the parcel will be available. If you are booking a drop-off service then you may need to select the depot from a drop down list or a Post Office from a list of possibilities offered based on your post code.
The rest of the process should be clear. There are a few things that may need emphasising is that some services will require you to print a label and attach it to y our parcel, whilst others may not. Another important note to make is that it is essential that you correctly measure and weigh your parcel as incorrect measurements may result in additional charges.
We, of course, also help arrange the delivery of parcels to Edinburgh as well as from it. If you're within the UK and your parcel is to be collected from another location here then the process is just the same as detailed above. We cannot, however, help arrange a courier to collect a parcel from abroad and ship it to Edinburgh.
Comments from customers who have sent parcels from Edinburgh.
Amazingly cheap. Thats the first thing. Thats great! However the two-day delivery time was not honoured at all. I recently sent four packages. One arrived in two days. Two took three days and one took four days. I did not mark the packages fragile (I assumed that a 30kg package wasnt likely to get thrown very far) but it was clear they got tossed about a fair bit. Although quite tightly packed, the contents had moved around a lot. Some CDs and cases were cracked or broken and a small coffee table leg got a bit broken too. Ive used them before, all in all Ive sent six packages and theyve all arrived eventually with nothing missing. Id highly recommend for non-time-critical deliveries of items unlikely to break (great for gradually moving a record collection from UK to Germany!). Extremely cheap!
Really impressed with this service! First time using it and it was quick and affordable.
Excellent! It is super helpful when you need to send several boxes and trying to save some money. Easy, quick, plus you can add insurance of your box. Both parcel arrived fine.
Very polite and efficient service, but I would appreciate a specific collection time slot, so I dont need to stay at home the whole day waiting.
