Book a Shoe Biz collection pick-up
Information for the Christmas period
Please note we will be collecting Shoe Biz bags from schools until Friday 22 December. We will aim to collect bags from anyone who requests a collection by midday Wednesday 20 December.
We will be resuming collections on 5 January. Any school requesting a collection from 20 December midday onwards will be placed on the waiting list for when collections recommence the 5 January. Please do not take your Shoe Biz bags of shoes into Clarks during this period, as Clarks are unable to accept more than 20 pairs of shoes at any one time.

Asking for a collection pick-up
If you are a school and would like to arrange for your minimum of five Shoe Biz bags full of shoes to be collected, please enter your username and password in the form at the bottom of this page.
Please note that due to the level of demand we cannot arrange a specific time and date for the pick-up. Collections will be made within 5 working days from the day you submit your request. The company DHL will be carrying out the collection.
Labelling your bags
Please also note that you must label your bags with the address of your nearest collection depot. To find out what this address is, please download the collection depot address list.
What bags can we use?
If you have received Shoe Biz Appeal bags, please use this for your shoe collection. If you have run out of Shoe Biz Appeal bags please either order more bags or use other suitable plastic sacks which can be any colour other than black.
