If I want to order something online, but don't want it to be delivered to my house (Say, for birthday presents, or just anything sensitive I'd like to keep to myself), is there a service that can hold a package or letter, so I can pick it up at a later date? I know I've seen something like that in the past, I just can't think what.

ill need to sign up and provide details so it's not anonymous. So will work fine for presents, not so much for illegal drugs from Silk Road.

You do not need to pay for parcel pod, nor do you need to pretend to be a backpacker.

Just sign up for counter delivery which is a free service for everybody.

Thankyou! 

Do you have experience with this? What's the process like?

Oh, and I think parcel Pod may me the service I'd heard of before.

Why not just get it delivered to a friend, family member, or your work address?  (assuming it's legal and/or discrete)

I tried this for a while but it was a pain because not all courier companies supported it. I'm referring to parcelpod.
