Customers looking to send parcels can arrange a free collection from their home or place of work — or choose to drop off their parcels from the new Manchester depot.

Manchester depot offers extended opening hours so customers can send or collect their parcel at a time convenient for them. Opening hours are: Monday Friday 8am – 7pm and Saturday from 8am -12.30.

A spokesperson from Parcelforce Worldwide said “The relocation of the Manchester depot ensures we can support the delivery of a high level of service in the area. The design of the new depot gives us the best use of space and productivity and integrates services from depots and direct customers. Just in time for peak, we are prepared for a busy festive season in the area.”
