Have you heard about the Royal Mail Parcel Collection?
For small businesses postage options are always a hot topic in the group I am in – and many people have a love / hate relationship with Royal Mail!
Royal Mail recently introduced a collection service for customers who use the online service to pay for postage.
For a one off fee of 72p per parcel you can request your parcels (a max of 5 per day) to be collected from your home address. Please note Covid tests can not be collected
This has been great for those days when I haven’t wanted to make the 25 mins trip to my delivery office to drop off a single parcel! or when I have been isolating so physically can not leave the house.
Normally this service is 70p per parcel but until the end of September they are offering this service for just 30p!
Not only saving you some cash but who really wants to queue in the post office when they dont have too?
I will definitely be taking advantage of this service while it is on offer, it would cost me more in fuel to get to the delivery office than it does to have it collected.
This is capped at 5 parcels per address per day and needs to be booked by 11.59pm the day before you want the collection and you can book up to 5 days ahead – the estimated collection time is also useful
