Book DHL a premium delivery courier service for shipping in the UK and to destinations around the globe. Enjoy full tracking and fast transit times by booking a DHL courier collection online with Parcel Monkey. DHL Parcel UK has replaced UK Mail.
DHL employs over 350,000 people and offers a wide range of delivery services for businesses who need to send a parcel across the globe. Parcel Monkey has worked closely with DHL for a number of years, allowing us to bring their global expertise to everyday consumers who need reliable and quick shipping, for an affordable price.
DHL offers customers the ability to send parcels to over 250 nations and territories around the world. Parcels are collected from either your home or office address by a DHL driver and transported fully tracked to your recipient.
Parcel Monkey offer discounted shipping rates with DHL as we send so many parcels with them every day and pass this discount on to our customers. You don't need to create an account with DHL or provide them with large numbers of parcels to enjoy better prices.
When booking DHL, ensure you have access to a printer as you will be required to print the shipping label and often a pro forma customs invoice.
DHL recently acquired UK Mail and as of October 1st, UK Mail will be rebranding as DHL Parcel UK. You will still be able to book all the UK Mail services like Next Day, Timed and Saturday, simply under the new name of DHL Parcel UK.
Despite the discounted rates, the premium level of service is upheld as we simply hand the booking to DHL and they take care of the collection right through to delivery. You can follow the DHL tracking too through your Parcel Monkey account, so why not pass this information on to the recipient so they can track their items? Using your PM order number will let you see a reflection of the DHL tracking.
Remember to always provide the recipient contact number as DHL or Customs can then contact them if required, on the off chance there are any issues with the shipment.
Take a note of the Waybill Number. This can be used to track your parcel directly on the DHL website.
Customers choose to book DHL for their quick transit times. With such a complex and developed infrastructure, you can use DHL to send from the UK to almost any destinations around the globe in as little as 1-2 days.
DHL deliver more quickly to neighbouring destinations in Europe, or to destinations that have a close tie to the UK like the USA, where large volumes of freight are moving throughout the day via DHL's own aircraft.
Remote locations such as small islands, or regions other couriers don't provide delivery services to, are generally covered by DHL. The chances are that when you get an international parcel delivery quote, DHL will generally be an option for you to select via the Parcel Monkey quote engine.
DHL can cater for very heavy goods but at an expense.
Due to their vast network, they are able to take big and bulky goods, but as you would expect this is expensive. Larger goods cost more to send due to the space they take up in the DHL courier network.
We see many customers ship important business consignments as well as personal belongings via DHL as they are trusted delivery service, familiar to millions around the globe.
You can now bring goods into the UK via our DHL Import Express service. Collected from a home or work address overseas, DHL will bring your parcels back into the UK in a quick transit time. DHL Import is used by businesses and individuals alike for a variety of reasons.
first class service
Everything worked exactly as described, easy to use and clear explanations. Whats not to like. Much better than queuing at the Post Office.
Picked up and delivered as advertised
Sent a 1.3kg package from Portugal to the UK using an express service. I thought itd be 2 days but it was actually less than 24 hours. Was very impressed.
Nice service and quick delivery
Very good service
Booked at about 4pm, however the driver did not collect until 5.40pm the next day. Altogether a great service though. Driver was on time, delivery was a day late, but acceptable.
Arranging the parcel delivery through Parcel Monkey was easy. Unfortunately I chose DHL as the courier. They were utterly useless. Didn’t turn up when they said they would. Almost impossible to get through to on the phone. When finally spoke to them they agreed that the parcel would be picked up later that day but again failed to materialise. No apologies, no-one took responsibility for sorting it out, and no-one bothered to let me know what was going on. DHL finally picked up parcel a day late. Absolutely appalling customer service, do not use DHL.
