You can book a courier to come and pick up your package from your home or work address and save the trip to the Post Office. The package will then be processed and sent on for delivery either in the US or internationally.
By using the Parcel Monkey shipping calculator you can compare and book discounted courier services. Once you have booked all you need to do is print off your shipping labels and hand your package to the courier when they come to pick up on a date of your choice.
Courier pickup and delivery services are the ultimate in convenience and popular with online sellers and small businesses as it can save considerable time and hassle. It is also a great option if your package is large or heavy, or you have several shipments to send.
You can also book a courier to collect a package for you from another address, ideal if you are buying from eBay but the seller doesn’t offer to ship or if you are simply unable to leave your home for whatever reason, get the courier to come to your door and ship your package direct to the door of the recipient.
Pickup courier services are very popular with eBay sellers and those who send a large number of packages. It makes more sense for the courier to come and pick up from you for a great price, rather than going back and forth to the store or Post Office. Not only this, we recently launched a useful CSV uploader tool to speed up the process of booking in multiple shipments.
Track your packages from pickup to delivery and share the Parcel Monkey shipment number with the recipient so they too can follow delivery. If your item valuable, why not add protection cover to your booking?
We would advise that you always hand over the package in person to the courier as leaving it out for a pickup can result in the package being at risk of being stolen, getting wet or it could be mixed up by the courier.
If you aren’t able to wait at home for a courier to pick up you could arrange for the courier to pick up from your work address, or you could book a Drop Off service and leave your package at the Post Office or local package store.
Parcel Monkey is a global shipping marketplace so you can have a package picked up and sent to destinations around the globe. We also offer pickup services from locations around the world so you can have items shipped to the US, or anywhere you like.
