phrasal verbs?

When should I separate the phrasal verbs?

Is there any logic to separate them?

One useful rule to remember is that when you use nouns, you can usually separate the verb and the particle that form a phrasal verb.
You should pick up the parcel at the post office.

Also, when you use pronouns instead of nouns (it, her, them etc.), these pronouns always separate phrasal verbs.

NEVER: <strike>You should pick up it at the post office.</strike>
