So I'm currently in Malaysia but need something posted from the UK out to me. I have no fixed address, and was wondering if FedEx or someone offer a service where you can post something to a collection office or something.

I checked the FedEx site but didn't prove very fruitful. Anyone any ideas?

You can normally get stuff delivered to Mailboxes etc branches

If you need help, my UK company has a DHL account with quite decent rates - should be able to get it delivered to DHL depot and collect from there. They'll collect from UK address and takes 3 days to KL, but they don't have depots in more rural areas (passed on to Poslaju)

I'm going away until the 15th, otherwise you could have sent it to my place and picked up from here (KL) :D

There's also DHL Shops in a few areas , I'm sure they'd offer a pick up service too . How big is the item you need to send?

It's just a letter sized thing I need sending over so size is next to nothing.

The po box looks like it's just for residents really?

Though mailbox etc may work. I'm surprised there isn't a business that specialises in this... The embassy should do it!

I'm planning on being in kl around the 15th...currently in Penang and working my way down.

If its just documents that's even easier as you won't need any invoice for customs declaration etc.

The DHL stations should be able to accept delivery for you if you're using DHL, can't advise on other couriers - if you're here the week from 15/16th onwards I can receive for you and meet up somewhere
