Collecting Your Parcel

Parcel collection is one of the core services offered by Evri ParcelShops. Here’s how you can make the most of this service.

Courier Deliveries

If your parcel is being delivered by a local courier, it cannot be collected from a ParcelShop or delivery depot. However, the courier will make three delivery attempts. If you anticipate being unavailable for the next delivery attempt, you have the option to:

  • Redirect to a Neighbour: Ask the courier to deliver your parcel to a trusted neighbour.
  • Deliver to a Safe Place: Specify a safe location where the courier can leave your parcel.

To manage these options, visit the Evri parcel tracking page and use your 16-digit tracking number and delivery postcode.

Collecting from a ParcelShop

If you’ve ordered from a retailer and know you won’t be home for the delivery, you can choose to collect your parcel from a ParcelShop. Here’s how:

  1. Select the Evri ParcelShop Option at Checkout: When placing your order, choose the ParcelShop option for delivery.
  2. Choose a Convenient ParcelShop: Use the locator tool to find a ParcelShop that is convenient for you, perhaps close to your workplace or on your daily commute.

This option ensures that your parcel is safely stored at a location convenient for you to pick up at your leisure.

Changing Delivery Options

From Home Delivery to ParcelShop

Once you’ve selected courier delivery as your delivery option, it cannot be changed to ParcelShop delivery. However, if you’re not going to be at home, you still have some flexibility:

  • Divert to a Neighbour: You can redirect your parcel to a neighbour’s address.
  • Specify a Safe Place: Choose a secure location where the courier can leave your parcel.

To make these changes, go to the parcel tracking page, enter your 16-digit tracking number and delivery postcode, and select the desired delivery option.
