How it works
When you select UPS Access Point™ service from our service comparison page, you'll be prompted to enter the contact details and addresses of the sender and receiver. You can then choose one of three delivery options :
UPS Access Point™ – UPS Access Point™ (drop your parcel off at a UPS Access Point™ convenient for you and have it delivered to one convenient for your receiver)
Sender address – UPS Access Point™ (have your parcel collected from an address of your choice and delivered to an Access Point™ close to your receiver)
Access Point™ - Receiver address (drop off your parcel at a UPS Access Point™ and have it delivered to your receiver's door)
Our UPS Access Point™ lookup enables you to find the UPS Access Point™ closest to your collection and delivery address so you can choose the most convenient location when making a booking.
Once you’ve placed an order, your shipping label will be emailed to you and made available in your My Account area. Print this off and securely attach it to your parcel then either await collection or drop your parcel off at your selected UPS Access Point™ .
If you choose to have your parcel delivered to a UPS Access Point™ , you will be notified once it has reached its destination. In order to collect it, your receiver must take photo ID and proof of address. If someone other than your named receiver is collecting the parcel, they must bring their own ID in addition to the ID of the receiver.
This is a 1-2 day service. Most parcels take just 1 working day to be delivered.
Each UPS Access Point™ has a daily collection from UPS (excluding weekends). The collection time for each UPS Access Point™ can be found here.
If your parcel is dropped off after UPS have made their daily collection for that day, your transit time will start from the day of collection.
This service is available for parcels up to a maximum chargeable weight of 20kg, and up to 97cm in length
Any parcels exceeding these restrictions will not be accepted.
