Need to drop off your shipments but can’t make it to one of our branches? Using a Chit Chats drop spot may be the solution for you.
Drop spot locations work differently than our branches. Drop spots are hosted by trusted third party vendors however, not all the same services are available as in our branches. Your prepared and labelled shipments can be dropped off at any time during business hours. Shipments are then sent to a Chit Chats hub in your region for processing.
Please note these differences in Drop Spot locations:
|Region||Drop Spot Locations||Convenience Access Fees||Notes|
|Atlantic Canada||Maritime Bus fees if applicable|
|Ontario||$3.00 + tax per visit||Clients must request access to drop spots*|
|Quebec||$3.00 + tax for each bag or box dropped off|
*(Ontario only) Request access to a drop spot by signing into your Chit Chats account and visiting our locations page. Click on the drop spot you are interested in and then click on Request Drop Spot Access.
When using a drop spot location, please be aware that:
- Only pre-labelled packages will be accepted at Chit Chats drop spots. Self-serve computers and label printers will not be available for preparing shipments.
- Shipments must be batched and consolidated before being dropped off.
- Drop spots have cut-off times for receiving shipments. Shipments received after the cut-off time or on weekends will be processed by Chit Chats the following business day.
- Convenience access fees may apply (with the applicable tax).
