Strange question but I'm sure with the combined knowledge in here it'll generate some suggestions

I'm currently housebound (or at least not able to drive/travel) and have a package for a passenger arriving into Manchester Airport early morning next week and departing later the same day

Any suggestions on a cost effective & secure way of getting package to somewhere they could collect ? I've used Amazon in the past and they've collected from lockers in the airport but unfortunately this item isn't available on Amazon and I have it with me already

Any services people can suggest ?? Postage via Royal Mail would be good as Post Office is 2mins walk (or hobble) for me

    InPost lockers are dotted around the place.
    There's one just over a mile from Manchester Airport.

    This would need a bit of planning I think.
    If you bought RM tracked online you could get the item collected from home.
    As it travels you could (in theory) select an 'inflight option' to change the delivery.
    Then select the airport post office as a collection point.

    This is a bit of a gamble but you could send it to the airport address but do this 'inflight' set up to change to the PO.
    Your recipient will need a mobile number/email address added to the details when you buy the postage.
    you need access to one(email/text) to set the inflight request.

    I offer no guarantee on this though ;)
