Royal Mail has launched ‘Parcel Collect’ a new service which will enable consumers and small business owners to book parcel collections from their homes for a levy of 72p per parcel on top of postage costs, or 60p per parcel for pre-paid returns.
Collections are able to be booked up to five days ahead of service and are offered on six days a week.
“Royal Mail Parcel Collect is a fantastic step forward for all of our customers,” said Nick Landon, Royal Mail’s chief commercial officer. “It makes it easier to use our services than ever before. Whether you’re up against time and working from home, making a return, selling online or sending a gift to make someone’s day, Royal Mail Parcel Collect is here to help. The launch of Parcel Collect is part of our commitment to continuously make our services better and more convenient.”
