I saw this over on boards and the general response to it seems to be positive. I haven't used them myself so can't comment on it but just passing on the message for anyone that might be interested. Sounds like it would be handy for anyone who cannot get items delivered to their workplace, or anyone that wants to buy something from the UK but that won't be delivered to Ireland - you can have it delivered to the Northern Ireland address and they will then take it from there to your ParcelMotel dropoff point.
Parcel Motel is a whole new way to manage your online shopping deliveries. Each Parcel Motel contains 80 secure lockers of varying sizes. They are all located in convenient places such as petrol station forecourts with 24-hour access 7 days a week. To find out where your nearest one is click here.
