Yes, we offer a couple of courier services for parcels to be collected today as long as you place the order in good time.
We accept orders for Parcelforce collections to be made as long as you place the order before 11 am, however, we strongly advise you place the order before 10 am as the courier will need to verify the shipping addresses and if this throws any issues up we can then fix them and process the order in time for a collection on the same day as you book. When you book you will see a countdown against each service and it will show you how long you have left to book to ensure your collection is made on your chosen date.
For those early risers, we also offer DPD services for shipping overseas but it must be placed by 9 am at the very latest for them to be processed in time for a collection on the same working day as we receive the order. Ideally, these should be placed the night before as we cannot guarantee that the courier on your route will have space on their manifest to make the collection for you on that day, whereas if the order is placed the night before- it will be collected the following working day.
When you place an order please ensure there is no error message on your account against the order as this may cause the order not to go through so just open a Live Chat or leave us a support ticket and one of the team will get it fixed for you.
If you have an order for mainland UK (including Northern Ireland and the Isle of Wight) and is up to 30kg in weight we offer the Parcelforce 24 service from approx just £10.85 (+VAT) which is great value for a next working day delivery.
This comes with full tracking door to door plus you can add protection cover to your item against loss or damage. Even cheaper than this, albeit an extra day for delivery is the Parcelforce 48 service which is under £10 (+VAT).
If you have something that needs to be collected and delivered on the same day, even on weekends and Bank Holidays, then City Sprint our same day carrier are the choice for you. Just book a half an hour collection window via our site using our cheaper rates than if you booked directly with them and they will collect and deliver your goods on the same day. it is imperative though that the recipient is available to accept the delivery or you may be charged more for them to store it and then redeliver later. This too comes with full tracking door to door and is very popular especially with business and customers who need something quick.
The alternatives if you have missed the cutoff point or do not need to fork out for the Same Day service come in the shape of our Drop Off services that you can pick from the quote engine.
These can also be cheaper, as you will find Parcelforce can be booked from as little as £7.69 (+VAT) and DPD even cheaper at £5.95 (+VAT). The earlier you get these to drop off locations, the more likely they will be picked up on the same day as you book. When you book our drop off's we send a label in under 20 minutes to your account ready to print out and attach to the parcel, and then you just take to your nearest drop-off. We cannot guarantee they will be processed the same day and picked up by the driver as it will depend on what time they collect from these points on a daily basis but a member of staff in the shop will let you know if the daily collection has been made.
We don't offer any specific time-slots for collections being made on the same day as you book apart from City Sprint, as this flexibility allows us to keep prices to a minimum. Plus we have a range of Drop Off services for customers who are unable to wait in for a collection.
