Seems Parcel motel is now installed in Sligo at 24hr service station Pearse Road. Hopefully will be up and running for use in next couple of days as time getting short for xmas deliveries
I thought it will be Topaz?
Now that will be handy.
Excuse my ignorance, what's the parcel motel?
Yes it's round the back of the 24hr station seems to be lit up and working,but does any one know is it taking deliveries yet??
If you ain't gonna be in your house for whatever reason, and don't want parcel post provider sending delivery back to either the sender or HQ, you purchase a postal address/box at the Parcel Motel and they deliver it there. You collect it there.
I guess its the parcel equivelant of a PO Box?
Is there any service yet available that will allow Amazon to deliver to ROI via a base in NI.?
I think there was talk of one being set up in Enniskillen.
That's exactly what parcelmotel will allow you to do

for anyone interested It's up and running and taking deliveries now
I've placed two orders with uk websites both with free delivery to the parcelmotel newtownabbey address but who wanted to charge a premium for Irish delivery.
saved myself 30euro in the process
great new in one way but not for the credit card on the other hand
if they re looking for a uk credit card .. use the first few lines of your address that is attached to the credit card then use the postcode of the parcel motel in the UK.. this worked for me using Dell outlet UK
I was trying to buy something from ebay and it didnt work - bacause it was limited only to UK(Excludes: Channel Islands, Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Scilly Isles, Scottish Highlands, Scottish Islands, Northern Ireland) and the address of parcel motel is in NI.
I was under the impression that with EBay you can only get goods delivered to the address that you are registered with? I thought it had something to do with the way EBay and PayPal are linked. Am I wrong??
I think you can add second address with paypal
heres a thread could answer most questions in relation to PM
From a Sligo perspective I can confirm all up and running. First parcel ordered from Amazon.co.uk on Thursday evening last (delivery via Newtownabbey) and received text this morning (Tuesday) to give me my pin to collect from Sligo. Collected it this evening when it suited me. Great Service
