NEAREST PARCEL DROP BOX

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where the nearest Royal Mail parcel drop box to Ivanhoe Road is located? According to the Royal Mail website, its on the corner of Ivanhoe Rd and Avondale Rise, however, although my parcel is within the size limit of a large letter, the post box is at least 2 inches too small. Does anyone know if any of the local post offices have parcel drop boxes? If not I will have to traipse down to the sorting office at Camberwell Green or arrange pickup at extra cost. Thanks

According to https://www.royalmail.com/d8/parcel-post-boxes "The maximum Parcel size allowed into our new Postboxes is 44cm x 35cm x 16cm", and the nearest one I can see listed there is probably Milkwood Road, SE24. Or are there different types of them?


PS After struggling with the RM website I see that there's a priority post box (as designated for collection of completed virus test kits) at the location you mention. Which doesn't help you, I know.

I've stopped sending parcels from the Post Office. Book online, print off the label, and DPD can pick up the parcel from your home or, if you want to do it a bit cheaper, you can drop your parcel at various places locally including Food & Wine 141 Lordship Lane. I dropped off a 4kg parcel on Tuesday and it was delivered on Thursday, and cost me less than ?10 I think. (Hermes et al also do similar, you'd need to check online which shops they pick up from).

Best stay away from Hermes. They are the cheapest but they lose at lot of parcels. They fake signatures and falsify the tracking. Cheap is not cheerful with them. Save yourself the grief, pay a ?1 extra and go with UPS or DPD.

    • Another recommendation for Sebastian at Bastek. He completely redid our family bathroom and transformed it into such a beautiful space. He is methodical in his work, really pays attention to detail and gives clear, considered advice.  As well as fitting the new bathroom suite so carefully, he did a fabulous job with the tiling, painting and finishes. An added bonus was the great communication and tidiness! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and hope to involve him in future projects. He's on 07947 751333 and is really responsive on WhatsApp. 
    • thanks! i was thinking how to create the spiked things myself as have seen some online but expensive once you calculate how much you need!
    • Suggest you get come Correx eg from an old estate agents sign and cut it into 50mm wide strips. Then get some carpet tacks (15mm long)  Push the carpet tacks into and through the Correx at 25mm intervals so that the sharp ends stick upwards. Then attach the strip to the top of your fence where it is lowest. It  doesnt injure them. It just makes it uncomfortable for them and they soon learn.
    • At sue , do you think the people of southwark or even the UK on their own can solve all of the environmental problems in the world on our own ? And putting garden waste into a brown bin is going to solve the environmental  problems of the world ? I do my bit for the environment by doing my recycling and driving a electric van , southwark council are causing more pollution by having LTNs and causing the traffic jams and vehicles to idle, believe me iam all for the environment but I'm afraid what happens to the earth in 200 , 500 or one thousand years from now is not my concern , I need to makesure that I can keep myself and my family alive now the same as many other people who are finding it difficult to pay for food and pay their Bills,  so I'm afraid I will be putting my garden waste into MY green bin which I pay for via my council tax and save my £80 which would help pay for my electric of gas or food ..  Also heard that council may only be collecting green and blue bins once a month,  not confirmed but just hear say at the moment ...
