Parcel Monkey can help you compare couriers and book cheap parcel delivery services for items of all weights and sizes.
Whether you’re sending a 10-15kg parcel internationally, sending a 30kg parcel in the UK, or have a whole pallet for delivery, our courier comparison quote calculator will help you find the best price available.
If you know the weight and dimensions of your parcel, just enter them into our short quote form and Parcel Monkey will give you a list of courier services to choose from. Parcel weight and size will impact the price of delivery, but by making use of our discounted shipping rates, we can help you pay far less than booking a courier directly or at the Post Office - Give it a try!
Courier companies use volumetric weight to determine the ‘bulkiness’ of a parcel and therefore the price to transport it. Obviously, the destination is taken into account too, as sending an item of the same size within the UK will be cheaper than sending it internationally.
To get an accurate price to send your parcel, all you have to do is enter the weight and dimensions into our clever courier quote calculator and it will calculate the volumetric weight for you, so we can provide you with a list of prices and services to choose from.
However, the key to this is accuracy. Ensure you weigh and measure the final packed item (not the item minus the packaging). These are the dimensions you need to enter into our quote calculator to get an accurate price.
Using our courier quote calculator, you can book DHL Parcel UK, DX Next Day, Parcelforce 24 and Parcelforce 48 to send parcels up to 25kg. Parcelforce services can be booked as drop off or collection and will cost you less when you book with Parcel Monkey than it would if you went to the Post Office.
You can Compare the prices available at the Post Office to see the savings that can be made.
Sending a parcel that’s 30kg or more? No problem. Whether you’re sending within the UK or internationally, we can help you find the cheapest rate available.
For parcels up to 30kg, Parcelforce 48 Large is an economical option and you can book this at a discounted rate with Parcel Monkey. For items over 30kg, enter the weight and dimensions into our courier quote calculator and we’ll give you a list of prices to choose from. Our large parcel couriers include DHL, DX Freight and Tuffnells.
Long parcels can be just as tricky to post as heavy ones. Couriers only accept certain dimensions so some fishing gear, for example, can be difficult to post. We work with couriers who can deliver not only heavy boxes but those longer items too. In fact, you can send items that are as long as 5m!
Both Tuffnells and DX Freight handle a lot of heavy and 'ugly' freight, they have a max weight limit of 500kg and max combined dimensions of 549cm. This more than likely will be a palletised delivery which they can handle, but you will need to have the item prepared on a pallet.
We offer a wide range of international shipping services, including Parcelforce Priority Global, which allows you to send items up to 30kg fully tracked to an extensive list of worldwide destinations.
If you’re looking for the cheapest rate for sending parcels up to 40kg overseas, find out about our Parcel Monkey services, Europe by Road and Air Express. These both provide affordable options for sending large parcels internationally.
