For most ParcelForce services, you can choose from having your parcel collected from your front door or to drop it off at your local Post Office. When you book for collection, ParcelHero will send you all the paperwork you need. The only exception to this is when you book next day collection, in which case the courier will bring your labels with them, so there’s no need to print them.
