If you live in Sunderland then you have a great variety of choices when it comes to send a parcel by courier. You can either book them online with us for them to collect from you where you either live or work or drop them off at a particular option. The advantage of the later choice is that you have much greater freedom and control of the process. In and around Tyne and Wear, for example, there are three depots you can take your pre-booked parcel to. There is also a Parcelforce depot to the north west of Chester-le-Street.
To take advantage of the depot options you would need to have selected this option during the booking process. We do have other couriers such as DHL, TrackPak and our own network, but currently there isn't the option to accommodate customer drop-offs.
There is also another option for international shipments via Parcelforce which allows you to book your order here and then take your labelled parcel (we will email you the labels) to your closest Parcelforce branch (or another convenient one). The staff there will then process the parcel and give you the tracking details

Comments from customers who have sent parcels from Sunderland.
Easy process to send a parcel.
I organised the sending of a package to an address in Leicester and whilst completing the online form I needed to enter details to assist the delivery driver as the delivery address is difficult to locate. So, I decided to complete a box with information to assist with delivery. The box was the width of the page on the screen but when I began typing, I found it would only take a maximum of 28 characters! Entering, "ring 012345678910 for directions" is actually too long, at 31 characters... what use is that?
It would be more helpful if we were notified when the parcel had been delivered/signed for
Excellent service express delivery definitely would use them again
Ive used this service several times, it works! However, this time I really needed to pass some important information to the delivery driver as the address is apparently difficult to locate... I had 28 characters on the form to impart this important information. Also, my name and the name of the recipient contain apostrophes, the form would not allow this to be included and had to be left out of the surnames. But in conclusion, the service has not let me down to date and one of the two shortcomings above (the apostrophe) is just a niggle, and yes, I will probably use Parcel Monkey in the future.
I wanted to send a parcel to Italy , it was really easy to print the label and send it off... the website was good to .... I couldn’t believe after just a few days the parcel arrived, being a lot cheaper than Royal Mail
