Over 5,500 local stores offer CollectPlus services from early ‘til late and 7 days a week.
Our stores are chosen for their long opening hours, handy locations and secure storage facilities and include supermarkets, newsagents, corner shops and even service stations.
Just stick your CollectPlus returns label to your parcel and drop it off at your nearest CollectPlus store. Remember not to cover up the barcode with your tape and to ensure that it is securely fastened to prevent it coming off in transit.
There are two ways to get a CollectPlus returns label:
- You will find a pre-printed label with the delivery documents in your package
- You will find instructions explaining how to obtain your returns label from our website or your retailer with the delivery documents in your package
Ensure that any labels that were on the parcel when you originally received it are either removed if possible or covered with the new returns labels that you are attaching. It’s important that you cover up or remove any pre-existing barcodes to prevent your parcel from being incorrectly scanned.
Find your retailer and discover how to obtain your CollectPlus returns label
Once you have dropped your returns parcel at your chosen CollectPlus store, you must keep your receipt as this has your parcel tracking code on it.
Once your parcel has been returned to your retailer you should allow adequate time for them to process your goods. Please refer to your retailer if you have any queries.
With CollectPlus you’re protected with online tracking and up to £50 cover.
If you are sending valuable parcels we recommend that you upgrade to our Signature Required option where for £1 extra you get a signature confirmation that your parcel has been delivered as well as £50 compensation cover. Further upgrades cost just £3 for £150 cover or £5 for £300 compensation cover, both with signature confirmation.
We will do everything we can to provide this option via all our CollectPlus stores but occasionally they may refuse a parcel if they have limited storage capacity. Simply let us know by clicking here and we can follow up with the store or find you an alternative store nearby who can accept it.
