What is a Drop-off service?

A drop-off service is a method of delivery that involves the sender taking their parcel to a nearby drop-off point from where the driver then collects it later. It offers flexibility for those who need to get their parcels dispatched quickly with minimum hassle of waiting for the driver to come by all day.
