So for example if you order something from an online retailer and they charge you €5.00 for delivery, we will charge you €3.95 to place it in your chosen Parcel Motel, so the total you have to pay will be €8.95. Many Irish sites offer FREE delivery so in that case you will only have to pay the €3.95 Parcel Motel charge. In fact many UK sites offer FREE UK delivery in which case you can use the Parcel Motel virtual UK delivery address and again you will only have to pay the €3.95 Parcel Motel charge.

The only exceptions are if your parcel doesn’t fit or you don’t collect it in time. If that’s the case the information below outlines any extra costs.

* 1 Stay = 1 Parcel in 1 Locker for up to 48 hours. Size & weight restrictions apply. Subject to Terms & Condtions.

  • The largest Parcel Motel locker size is 41 × 38 × 64 cm
  • The maximum weight is 10 kg

The following charges will apply to oversize/overweight parcels, but we recommend that you use our oversize calculator by clicking here.

Oversized / Overweight Service Under 55 kg Over 55 kg in actual or dimensional weight
Collection at any Parcel Motel (Nightline) Depot by you, or a third party courier * €7.00 per parcel for 48 hours In addition to the €7.00 Parcel Motel charge, there is a supplement of €7.00 per 10 kg (over the 55 kg) or part thereof per parcel
Delivery to an alternative address – Any address in Ireland including Northern Ireland is an option available to customers. A supplement of €7.95 in addition to the €7.00 Parcel Motel charge, so €14.95 in total per parcel A supplement of €7.00 in addition to the total Parcel Motel charge (€7.00 charge plus €7.00 per 10 kg (over the 55 kg) or part thereof per parcel)

* the courier must have your name and PMID in order to collect your parcel.

All of the above prices include VAT. If you have added a card to your Parcel Motel account your card will be charged when the parcel arrives. If you are using the Top Up service, the charge will be deducted from the balance on your Parcel Motel account.

Weight refers to the Dimensional (this is sometimes called Volumetric) weight of your parcel. Where dimensional weight exceeds actual weight you will be charged based on the dimensional weight of your parcel. To calculate the dimensional weight of your parcel(s) multiply the dimensions of each parcel in cm then divide by 3000.

Dimensional Weight = Length × Width × Height in cm / 3000

Dimensional Weight Example Calculations

  1. A parcel which weighs 15 kg and measures 50 × 50 × 24 cm works out as 20 kg in dimensional weight. If you collect this from a Parcel Motel (Nightline) depot, you will be charged €7.00, and if you have it delivered to your address you will be charged €14.95.
  2. A parcel which weighs 15 kg and measures 100 × 35 × 55 cm works out as 37.5 kg in dimensional weight. If you collect this from a Parcel Motel (Nightline) depot, you will be charged €14.00, and if you have it delivered you will be charged €21.95.
  3. A Samsung 46” Smart LED TV in its box measures 130 × 80 × 18 cm so the dimensional weigh is 62.4 kg so the charge for this is €21.00 to collect and €28.95 to have delivered.
  4. Bicycles, although light in actual weight, can be packaged in a very large box and have a big dimensional weight.

 

Expired Stays

Parcels which have not been collected within 48 hours.

Expired Stays

 

If your parcel stays at the Parcel Motel for longer than 48 hours, we will collect it and bring it back to the nearest Parcel Motel (Nightline) Depot. You will be notified of this, and we will automatically send your parcel back out to your chosen Parcel Motel.

Expired Stay Service Price
Return to your chosen Parcel Motel You will be charged €3.95 for a second stay *

* Parcels which have not been collected after 3 charged stays will be held for 30 days and then disposed of.

You have 48 hours to collect your parcel from the time your parcel is stored in the Parcel Motel. We will send SMS and email notification with your collection PIN.
Please note that the SMS may arrive a couple of hours after your parcel has been stored as the standard settings for mobile availability is to send SMS between 7am-11pm (so if your parcel is stored at 3am the 48 hours begins from 3am the text notification will be delayed until 7am). If your parcel is not picked up within the 48 hours, it will expire and will no longer be available for collection. Your parcel will be returned to the Parcel Motel depot and will be re-processed and restored in your Parcel Motel and you will be charged a further €3.95 for the additional stay.
