Drop and Send

Place your package in one of our secure drop boxes, scan a QR code with your phone, and walk away.
No postage needed and no standing in line.

Step 1

Download the Helena Express app

You'll need an account before you can use our drop boxes. Sign up in the Helena Express app, or use our website if you prefer.

Don't want an account? Visit a Helena Express kiosk to purchase postage with a credit or debit card.

Step 2

Find a drop box

Use this map or the Helena Express app to find your nearest drop box.

Nothing nearby, or oversized package? Stash it somewhere safe and request a pickup instead!

Step 3

Prepare your package

Write your Helena Express account number, to address, and from address on your package. We provide free labels for this at every drop box, and we'll mail you some customized ones when you set up your account. Need more? You can order them for free in our app's Shop page.

If you need any extra options, like shipping insurance, signature delivery, or Certified Mail, or you want the package sent with express shipping, just select those options on one of our free labels.

Step 4

Send it!

Place your package in the drop box, then use the Helena Express app to scan the Pickup Code on the box.

We'll come get your package, print a shipping label, bring it to the Post Office or carrier facility, charge the credit card you linked to your account, and email you a receipt with tracking numbers.
