What is a drop-off delivery?
One of the most convenient ways to deliver a package these days is to arrange a drop-off parcel delivery service. The sender takes their package to a designated location, drops the package off, then it’ll be picked up and delivered by your chosen carrier.
Packlink can help you save time and money when choosing a carrier to make your drop-off delivery. By comparing all of the mainstream services and getting quotes from each of them, you can find the best prices for your package’s destination, weight and dimensions. In fact, Packlink can offer savings of up to 50% on national postage and 70% on international shipments compared to public rates charged by carriers.
So whether you’re an individual sending a package or a business looking to send something overseas, drop-off deliveries offer a great balance between cost and convenience.
Why choose drop-off delivery for your packages?
Parcel drop-off deliveries come with several advantages:
- There’s no need to wait for a courier to come and collect the package.
- Convenient drop-off locations such as Post Offices, drop-off depots and even local stores.
- You can drop the package off whenever the location is open–including weekends and sometimes even at night.
