Not everybody has access to a printer, and if you are new to sending a parcel or only send once in a while, it is helpful to know you can compare, book and send without needing to print any shipping labels out.
However, we do not offer a courier service where packaging is supplied. You will always need to prepare your parcel to be sent through the courier network correctly packaged so it arrives safely with the recipient.
Quite simply, the courier brings the label with them to the collection point, so you hand over the parcel to the driver when they come to collect it and they stick it on the box so it can be safely transported to the recipient.
No printer services are very popular but only available for UK domestic delivery and with a select few couriers. When shipping internationally, you might need Customs Documents, so a printer will be required.
The couriers you would need to choose from if you do not have a printer for your labels are;
We do know that printing labels can be an issue and although you can always find the relevant label within your account, we understand that some people just prefer to book a courier collection from a parcel delivery company that doesn't require a label to be printed off by you.
A great advantage of booking a courier service where labels are provided is when you need an item to be collected from another address. This generally happens for some purchases on eBay and Gumtree, or when you are having an item collected from a family member who is not able to print off the shipping label.
We always send a Parcel Monkey label which is optional, that we do recommend you print out and attach to your box if you have a printer. This just has your PM reference number on which you can track your parcel using.
If sending more than one parcel, we do advise using these labels so it reduces the risk of labels being mixed up when the driver comes to collect.
