    Carriers collect directly from our depot for this service. This means you have a few different options to choose from when it comes to dropping off your parcel or having it collected from your door.

    Collections from your door

    Collections from your door are arranged by Transglobal Express, with a choice of carriers. In some areas of London, North West England and the East Midlands, we will collect your parcels ourselves - at no extra cost to you.

    If you are booking a non-Transglobal collection, please add 1 working day to the estimated transit time to allow for overnight delivery to our depot.


    You can also drop off at one of our depots (or partner shops - see full list), or choose one of hundreds of DPD drop-off or UPS Access Point™ locations nationwide.


    If booking a collection, unless we are collecting your parcel ourselves, your shipping labels will show our depot as the destination address.

    Once your shipment arrives at our depot, we'll process it, relabel if required and send it on to its final address.

    Please refer to our documentation page for labelling instructions for each collection and drop-off option.
