DPD missed deliveries

Hi Folks,

In the a past I have always ordered stuff from ocuk and paid extra for royal mail delivery (even though I get free DPD delivery) as the depot down is close to home. I work during the day and can't have packages delivered to work so I miss delivery and then pick them up from the depot first thing the next day.

However, now ocuk don't seem to offer the royal mail option so my only option is with a courier. The depots for the couriers are a lot further away for me usually but I have been trying to find out where the nearest DPD depot is and I can't find any information on their website. Does anyone know where I can pick up the packages from around south manchester/ stockport?

Thanks for that, doesn't look like it's close to me. I may have to look else where unfortunately which is a shame.

The depot they usually dispatch stuff to me in Stockport from is in Warrington, about 18 miles away or roughly 30 mins down the M56.

It's not there any more. I don't really have a lot of options. Either I pay for saturday delivery in which case I am hanging around all of saturday waiting for delivery or I pay for RM delivery and then I can pick it up before work or first thing saturday morning.

Special Delivery hasn't changed but if your basket is over 10KG you can't use it - just too heavy. Most people only use Special Delivery for orders up to 2KG which isn't too excessive but between 2KG and 10KG is the 25 jlss mentioned.

If it's a heavy item like a case or a monitor there is simply no option, if it's several items you could try splitting the order up to fit it under the 10KG, but the cost would be quite horrific.

If you can't be in at any point in the day it would be tricky for DPD, do you not have anyone you trust who is in the day where it could be delivered? Of course if your talking heavy Royal Mail deliveries the DPD Saturday option is going to be cheaper.

For your nearest depot's I'd guess the Warrington one down the M56 or a more enjoyable (although longer) jaunt over snake pass to Sheffield.
