    Are you able to send from a City link depot?

    Just wondering as I have a parcel that needs sending, and can't be around all day for the courier. And citylink appear to be significantly cheaper than the PO. So does anyone know if you can just go to one of their depots and send from there?
    Thanks

    I use parcel monkey and quidco or top cashback to send via city link.
    Book delivery .
    Wait for email to confirm booking.
    Print label from email.
    Deliver parcel to depot.
    No waiting around.
    All sorted.
    OK

    i know u can with business account

    but city link are rubbish anyway

    Nope you need an account to send with City-link from the depot and there prices may seem cheaper cause they have no insurance policy as such. Unless you use one of the 3rd parties as mentioned above which you will find will be even cheaper than city-link direct with some kind of insurance policy. I tend to use Interparcel cause they use UPS which my brother works for so an extra bit of security for me thats all.

    I think city link are good

    As i stated above book with parcel monkey etc and you dont need an account.
    just follow steps and drop at depot.
    Ive done this on a least 25 times this year.
    As for there service ive not had any probs so cant comment on this.
    But the service ive had is great.
    Used next day service which should be pickup next day from you deliver to them next day over all 2 days.
    But drop off on day of booking they then deliver next day.

    Wait till they wipe out a £1500 switch and make it nigh on impossible to get your case back will soon change your tune then

    A £1500.00 item
    I would deliver it myself and want it signed for in there blood.
    And keep there finger as proof of receipt.

    so when you arrange it on there website what do you say, as there is no option for them to not pick up from your house, so i assume they still come to your house?

    That's a business for you rather naive when it comes to couriers many a time i have tried to push them elsewhere but since they have accounts set up there they just use them whatever

    Say nothing book pickup during booking process.
    Print of label.
    Stick to box.
    Take to depot hand it over they scan it in.
    Your all done
    They send a man to pick it up next day but the norm is its been delivered before he comes to pick it up.
    I look at tracking and it says arrived at depot monday 11.00am
    delivered tuesday 11.00am for example.
    missed pick up tuesday 15.00pm

    I think I will do this, only thing concerning me is the insurance, but oh well.
