If you're looking for a courier pick up option in order that a driver comes to your address to "collect my parcel", then we're obviously the solution for you. As part and parcel of this service of course, we also arrange the other half of the process - the delivery of the parcel. We believe our parcel pick up service is particularly relevant for people that work during the day and would like a parcel collected from their office, factory or place of work. Likewise we are the parcel pick up solution if you're elderly, disabled, live in a remote location or just not capable of leaving your home for any reason - the courier will visit your address and collect your parcel, for a fraction of the cost of booking directly with a courier.
Of course, parcel collection and delivery can be done differently if your lifestyle dictates that you cannot wait in for a courier. Try our Drop Off services and enjoy the benefits that may suit you.
Absolutely, if you have bought something online from a marketplace or need to have something collected from someone else this is no problem. Just get a quote as normal, set the address to be the senders, place the order and email any shipping labels that are required to attach to the parcel. They might need to weigh and measure the parcel for you, but once you have this information it is a simple process and saves them having to take anything to the Post Office to send and avoid the hassle this entails.
The key to all of our services, courier collection or Drop Off are the savings you can make. We help our customers send so many items, that the couriers now offer us some of the lowest priced shipping rates, so book on our site, print out the label and hand over to the driver upon collection. The other saving is time, don't bother heading to the Post Office, getting stuck in traffic, looking for parking or wasting petrol. Get the courier to do the leg work. Save yourself the time of shopping around online to, our quote engine will present the best courier collection services around from big name brands such as Parcelforce, DPD, DHL, DX and City Sprint to name a few.
There is no compromise on quality either, you will get the exact same standard of service as booking in at the Post Office or direct with a courier, just for a better price! Arrange a courier pick up the parcel for a fraction of the cost, track all your orders online via our tracking tool and make shipping parcels in the UK and abroad easy.
We are proud to be offering such a great range of parcel collection services to our customers so that we can help them ship parcels to over 250 destinations around the globe.
We have some of the best prices on the market into Europe, and beyond. eCommerce has driven more and more sellers in the UK to expand their business out to European buyers and we can help you be more competitive than ever, by not only offering parcel collection and delivery to an extensive list of locations, but at a great price. Likewise we can help you send to friends and family who may reside overseas at a fraction of the cost you might pay elsewhere and have built in the ability to complete customs forms easily during the booking process.
Shipping out of the EU to International markets can on first glance be a headache, but the aforementioned booking process tidies up filling out customs forms whilst our Customer Support Centre are online to talk you through any queries from 8am to 9pm weekdays via Live Chat. There should be no issue with your parcel being sent around the world as long as you fill in all the forms we give you accurately and declare your goods correctly.

Of course! We have a vast number of eBay sellers that regularly use the courier collection services available on Parcel Monkey to keep on-top-of their order deliveries. When you send volumes of parcels every day, then it makes sense for the courier to visit you rather than having to take them all to various shops - especially if parking is an issue.
Finding an eBay courier to come and collect has never been easier, you can add your parcel dimensions and pick and choose the best courier service for your specific items. When you make a sale you want to be able to ship it with a trusted courier at a rate that does not leave you out of pocket. Plus the buyer may want tracking, so give them the PM order number so they can follow it door to door.

To arrange a courier collection service use the quick quote engine to obtain the courier prices for your specific item. Its self explanatory and allows you to view options to select how quickly you'd like your parcel to get to its destination and for how much. No matter where you want to send a parcel, fill in some other information like where the parcel should be collected from, and where it's going to and shouldn't take more than three or four minutes to get your package allocated for courier collection.
We have lots of people ask about this, which may be down to them being at work or popping out during the day. Our advice on this is no, as it can cause mix ups with couriers, it leaves the parcel vulnerable to go missing or get wet and it is always better to hand it over in person to the collection driver. We offer Drop Off's, collections from offices, and of course we can always rebook to a date when you are in to hand it over to get around this issue.
You may then question what am I supposed to do then if I am at work or not around to wait in for a courier collection? We would advise you take the route of either arranging a collection from your work address or opting for our popular Drop Off services, and drop the goods off rather than leaving them out in a vulnerable position.
Recently we have acquired even better Parcelforce Drop Off service rates that allow you to drop your parcel at either a Parcelforce depot or a Post Office. We also offer a DPD Pick Up service, where you can drop into one of their 2,500 Pick Up stores around the UK, and save on the cost of this service when you book via our quote engine.
Apart from the CIty Sprint Same Day Courier service, we do not have any couriers that offer Saturday or Sunday collections. City Sprint can be booked 24 hours a day, 365 days a year so they are the ultimate in convenience.
If you are concerned about being available to hand over your parcel, if you are out at work during the week, why not have the parcel collected from a work address? Failing this then you could use the various drop-off services we offer. You can check the Drop Off opening times of your local store or Post Office in the quote process, so it is possible to drop the parcel off over the weekend if the location is open. DPD are good for this, they have locations in places such as Matalan and Sainsbury's.
For years now, we have flipped the courier collection market on its head and given you greater control of the shipping process. One of the aspects of the traditional courier process that some customers didn't like was that they would have to wait in for a parcel to be collected. Sometimes this actually meant that they had to take time off work. But now you're not expected to do that. You now have some options.
City Sprint offer a hour slot so you know what time they will be on their way, whilst if you book DPD to come and collect international parcels and you have the DPD App you can track what time the courier will be along to collect the parcel. Of course, as mentioned before Drop Off eliminates the wait in for a courier and you can drop off at a convenient time for you.
We have also recently launched a new parcelmonkey.com site that means you can actually ship parcels anywhere around the world, from anywhere. Enjoy low cost, any which way shipping, available not only to our UK customers but to people around the world .
