You know the drill. You’ve got to send a parcel, but the only time you can get out is lunchtime. Which is the same as everyone else, hence the massive queue in the post office.

Well now you can bypass the whole sorry saga with Collect+. Instead of trudging down to the post office and standing in line for half an hour, you can just drop it off at a corner shop - no queues, no hassle. There are more than 7,000 participating corner shops around the country, so there’s sure to be one nearby. Prices start at £3.99.

It’s a doddle to use, too. Just print off your label using Collect+’s handy tool, stick it to your parcel, and drop it off. It’ll accept parcels up to 10kg, so should cover most needs. You can track your parcel online, and there’s compensation cover in case something goes wrong. You can even pick up a parcel from your local shop, so you won’t have to join the other queue at the sorting office.
