“Here at Parcel2Go, quality, consistency and accessibility are paramount – and our partnership with Collect+ represents just that. People can pay for this service online via our website and then take their parcel to their local Collect+ shop.
“Courier service Yodel, another of our partner courier companies, picks up the parcels and delivers them to recipients in the usual way.”
