Commonwealth Games FAQs:

Can I still drop off/collect my parcels during the Commonwealth Games at Yodel Direct stores? Yes, you will still be able to visit stores to collect and drop off parcels, and we’ll still send these to your recipient. There may just be a slight delay. You'll just need to check the opening hours of your selected location which you can find here.

Will my parcels be delayed arriving to my selected store or will there be a delay with my parcel reaching my recipient? There may be a short delay in your parcel arriving to different Yodel Direct store, however, parcels will be collected for delivery by our team of friendly neighbourhood couriers as usual. Simply check out for updates via email notifications regarding your order.
