You might be wondering what exactly a parcel collection service is, and how much you can expect to pay — or when you book with us, save — for a courier to collect a parcel from you. Luckily, we’re here to give you the low-down on your questions to help you get the service that’s right for you!
What is a parcel collection service?
A parcel collection service is what some might regard as the “classic” courier experience. Your chosen courier arrives at a specified location — perhaps your house or even your office — within a given time frame to pick up your parcel, and take it to the recipient. This is sometimes called a “door-to-door” service, too.
What are the benefits of collecting my parcel?
The main benefit of having a courier collect a parcel is that it makes life a little easier for you. Being able to book a collection for a specific location means that you can organise the pick-up in such a way that you don’t have to leave home or work to dispatch your parcel, as you might with a drop-off delivery.
How much will it cost to collect my parcel?
By booking through Parcel2Go, you can have your parcel collected from as little as £2.48 plus VAT! That’s because we’re dedicated to bringing our customers great parcel prices that you won't find cheaper anywhere else.
What time can I book a collection for?
Collection times depend on your chosen courier. As a general rule, the earliest your parcel can be collected is 8 am, and the latest is 8 pm.
