Do I need to be home to sign for my parcel?
No. You can request authority to leave (ATL) via your Shippit tracking email.
NOTE: If you don't see the authority to leave button, this means you've already opted in and don't need to request it again.
Rather it is delivered to a collection point?
That's fine. You'll see an option to have your package delivered to a local collection point in your delivery options when booking a redelivery.
