Wakey, wakey rise and shine, make sure you are on the ball if you want a Same Day collection, you need to place the order bright and early to get your parcel collected the Same Day as you place the order.
If you book Parcelforce before 11am via the Parcel Monkey quote engine, it means that your parcel can be collected by them before the daily 6pm cut off time, the very same day as you make the order. This service is ideal for parcels that are in a hurry as you can use the Parcelforce 24 service to get them delivered the Next Day, or the Parcelforce 48 service for larger goods, or if you want save on the cost of delivery. Same Day courier collection is ideal as well if you don't have a printer, as UK domestic parcels booked on this service do not need a label attached to them as the driver brings it with them to the collection point.
The technology and industry leading courier DPD offer a same day collection service, available via the Parcel Monkey quote engine for a fraction of the price of booking directly. Just place the booking nice and early, before 9am, and they will put you on the collection manifest to come and collect your parcel the very same working day.

One of the best services we offer for those urgent parcels is City Sprint because they offer same day collection and delivery, 365 days of the year and 24 hours a day. They offer full tracking and a label, so no need for a printer. You can select a time slot for collection that suits you, plus you can watch the courier via the tracking portal until the item is delivered to the recipient. You can also choose a vehicle size which is perfect for your item, so if you have a small parcel, or a large piece of furniture, City Sprint can help you out.

When you book City Sprint, you can actually choose a time slot that suits your needs for the collection driver to come and take your goods. Your item will collected approx between 30 mins before and after the time slot you book, depending on the volume of collections the carrier has.
For DPD, due to their innovative technolgy, they do text a time slot out to you so you have an hour collection slot, so you can know when to be in at home, or when to head down to reception if you are at work, to hand the parcel over. They won't be able to tell you at the time of booking what time they are coming to pick up, but you will be alerted when the driver is on the way to collect the parcel.
To get our prices down as low as they are that means there have to be some sacrifices with the ParcelForce service and this means they are unable to provide a collection window for same day collection services, or any of their product line up available via the Parcel Monkey quote engine. Most Next Day services you'll find from online courier services don't offer time slots for collections, and we're no different. If you make a booking for a Same Day collection with Parcelforce, your parcel will be collected before the close of business which normally means 6 pm, as long as you make the order before 11am and your Post Code is in a region where they can service this request.
No problem, sometimes when a parcel has got to go, it's got to go! If you have left it a little late to book a collection in for the Same Day collection, we have another alternative, which would be to book a Parcelforce Drop Off service, or DPD Pick Up service meaning you can drop your parcel off at any time convenient for you. You can find your nearest drop off location for either of these service in the quote process, just get a quote and on the results page where all the prices and services are listed, hit the Drop Off tab at the top. You will then find all the Drop Off solutions available for Domestic and International parcels.
We take your post code and show you the most convenient place to drop the parcel off at, plus it will show the opening hours of the location so you know when and where to drop off. Some locations with DPD are open until late at night, perfect if you have something to post after work, or over the weekend.
