FAQs ABOUT DONATING BOOKS

Can you collect my items?

Yes absolutely. Our partner arranges collection of your items using Parcelforce. All you need to do is select your collection date in the form below.

Do I have to package my items?

Yes, you need to put all your items in a cardboard box, ready for collection by Parcelforce. Ensure your box is sealed with packaging tape so that nothing falls out.

Do I have to pay postage?

No, you don’t have to pay for postage or collection of your items, as long as your box is between 6kg and 24kg. Contact us for advice if your box weight is different.

What books do you accept?

We accept pretty much all kinds of books, so long as they are not damaged and marked, and are in resalable condition. Contact us for advice if you’re still unclear.

Can you collect on weekends?

Unfortunately not. Our partner uses Parcelforce to collect your items who only offer collections from Monday to Friday, excluding bank holidays.

Can I send you a big box?

Yes, but please ensure your box is no larger than 168cm when you add all three sides together (combined total i.e. length + width + height).

How heavy can my box be?

Please ensure your box weighs a maximum of 25kg. You may send multiple boxes if all of your clothing items weigh more than 25kg in total.

Can I specify a collection time?

Unfortunately Parcelforce does not offer specific time slots for collection. Collections take place on the date you selected between 9am and 5:30pm.
