Can I arrange for a parcel to be collected from someone else?

Yes, you can arrange a collection to be collected from someone else. These occurrences are most common whenever you buy an item online but the good thing is DropBox2Go is here to help.

Here are some of the few reminders when you wish to collect your item from someone else:

Reassure the person where the item will be collected from is available on the chosen date of collection.

There wouldn’t be any problem if the item will be collected from a friend or relative, just simply instruct them that there will be someone who will collect the parcel from them, this is in order for them to hand it over to the driver and to avoid missed collections as well that may cause delays on the delivery.

If you bought the item online, I bet this is not that easy. You should be aware of the availability of the seller and a communication between the two of you is a must. In the event the seller is not available to stay at home waiting for collection, you have the option to choose a drop off service instead.

Shipping Labels

If you’re sending parcels just within UK, they won’t need to print out shipping labels as the courier will provide it for you upon collection. Hence, it only applied on some couriers and for others you would.

Packaging
Correct weights and dimensions

Aside from packaging, the correct weight and dimension also play a vital role because if the courier weigh the parcel and found that it is different from the one you stated, they may charge you additional fee on your account.

It is necessary for the seller to provide you the correct weight and dimension before proceeding on the booking process, to avoid any problems during transit.
