Scheduling a UPS pickup is a quick and easy process. Before you begin, you’ll need to create a UPS account on their website.

There are two ways to schedule a UPS Pickup: by phone and online. Let’s talk about both.

Scheduling a UPS Pickup by Phone

  1. Call 1-800-PICK-UPS (1-800-742-5877)
  2. Have all your shipment information prepared. This includes:
    • Type of postage desired
    • Package weight, dimensions, and specifics
    • Pickup date, time, and location
    • Other service and package information
