Terms & Conditions
Parcel Holders is a trading name of Parcel PickUp Limited, registered company no.6508943.
Deliveries will be accepted on the following conditions:
See your Welcome back page for your example of correct labelling.
Use the name and address of your chosen Parcel Holders collection point as your delivery address. Next to your collection point's name write the supplied code. Please note that part of this code changes with each delivery.
Parcel Holders cannot be held responsible for the loss of a parcel if it's address is incorrect or incomplete.
We take responsibility for loss, theft or damage of all items in our care. We cover the price paid for the goods and associated postage and packing costs. See Prices and Payment for the maximum value of a delivery item Parcel Holders can handle on your behalf.
We will compensate customers within 28 days in full, in the event of loss, theft or damage, where proof of delivery to the Parcel Holders collection point can be provided. This will normally be either in the form of a signature, taken from the Parcel Holders collection point, by the courier as a confirmation of delivery or where the Parcel Holders collection point has confirmed receipt of a delivery.
However, where evidence of a delivery to the Parcel Holders agent does not exist and the Parcel Holders collection point disputes receiving the delivery, compensation for a missing delivery is strictly at the discretion of Parcel Holders. We require that before any claim is commenced, you have taken steps to ensure that:
a. The delivery was sent by the retailer to the correct Parcel Holders collection point;
b. You have waited a reasonable length of time for the delivery to arrive at the Parcel Holders collection point;
c. You have checked, and are able to prove that you have paid the retailer for your delivery;
d. You have requested and recorded relevant courier tracking reference numbers from the retailer;
e. You can demonstrate that you have requested and been rejected for compensation from the online retailer;
f. You can demonstrate that you have requested and been rejected for compensation from the courier;
Having followed these steps and having been unsuccessful in locating or being compensated for your lost/stolen delivery, you may start the claim application process with Parcel Holders. We may request evidence that you have followed the steps above before proceeding with your claim application.
Furthermore, we may require that you permit us to discuss your delivery with the retailer, courier company and financial institution directly.
Moreover, in the event that Parcel Holders has compensated you for a lost or stolen item/s, the item/s then become the property of Parcel Holders. You are required to inform Parcel Holders immediately should any item subsequently be delivered to you, found or retrieved. As now the property of Parcel Holders, Parcel Holders may take ownership of and dispose of items as it feels fit. However, we will endeavour to provide you with an opportunity to purchase the goods back using the compensation you have received (if you have not already replaced the item/s).
4. Conditions of service:
Parcel Holders reserves the right to withdraw service from registered customers, without explanation or advanced warning.
5. Size and Weight:
We are flexible in the size and weight of parcels we can take delivery of and store for you. However, unless otherwise agreed, we cannot accept very large or heavy deliveries (such as kitchen appliances, furniture, heavy tools or equipment), which might require lifting equipment. If in doubt, please contact us before arranging delivery of your purchase and filling out your Parcel Holders submission form.
Parcel Holders does not accept:
a. Time sensitive deliveries (such as tickets) unless prior consent from the Parcel Holders collection point has been given and agreed, in writing on a per delivery basis;
b. Items which require payment on delivery;
c. Items which are visibly broken, damaged or leaking;
d. Deliveries containing live animals or live animal foodstuffs;
e. Illegal items of any description;
f. Any food items such as fruit and meat delivered from outside the UK, as these may be illegal to import.
7. Collection and storage charges:
At Parcel Holders we endeavour to take collection of and store your parcels in a safe environment. However, we cannot be held responsible for the natural deterioration of goods while in our care. Therefore, collection should be made as soon as possible. If for any reason you are unable to collect your parcel/s, please refer to Prices and Payment for Storage charges.
Parcels will only be released on receipt of your proof of identity and payment.
Parcel Holders does not make onward deliveries. If we have been unable to contact you and have received no instruction from you within 12 weeks from the delivery date, we will assume you no longer require your parcel/s and will dispose of it/them (please note that this is a last resort and we will try our utmost to get hold of you first).
Parcel Holders reserves the right to change or amend its prices and services at any time and without prior notice. However, changes will only be implemented after they have been published on the Parcel Holders website. Please see Prices and Payment for further details.

In order to accept your parcel/s, we require you to register by providing us with your name, home address, email address, mobile phone number (if applicable) and a personal password of your choosing (to enable you to login). We also request that you first inform us about how you heard about our service.

However, we retain the right to disclose personal information to the appropriate legal authorities, where we believe this may aid in the prevention of fraud. Furthermore, we retain the right to share your personal information with retailers, courier companies and financial institutions, to track your deliveries and/or aid in the prevention of fraud.
