Can I hand write the address on my parcel?

You can handwrite the address on your parcel if you have selected a 'Printer Optional' service.

Some services DO NOT require a printed label; look out for the 'Printer Optional' icon on the quotes result page.

UK services

Drop-off service - we recommend using the Print in Store service from Collect+

  1. You book a Collect+ drop-off delivery at and select the ‘Print in Store’ add-on for just 30p. You can select this from the pop-up that will appear on the quotes page.

  2. Open your confirmation email on your phone to find your label barcode.

  3. Take your parcel to your local Collect+ drop-off point and hand the barcode over to the clerk to print your label for you.

Collection services -  book either DX, Parcelforce, City Sprint or Palletforce and the driver will bring labels to the collection point, so you can just hand write the delivery address onto the parcel.

European services

For European services, you can use Parcelforce (collection service only) and again the driver will bring labels to the collection point.

International services

We DO NOT offer any services delivering to countries outside of the EU that do not require a printed label.
