We help thousands of customers who want to send large parcels and items that might be quite heavy. Royal Mail parcel prices can be a bit steep when it comes to shipping heavy parcels in the UK or overseas, so this is where our courier comparision service can keep your costs in check.
If you know the weight and dimensions of your parcel then just put them in the very short quote form and Parcel Monkey will give you a list of courier collection services that can be booked via our platform. Delivery size will impact the price of shipping, buit we aim to help as many consumers as we can.
Heavy goods can be difficult and expensive to send, so shippers often head online to source a cost effective solution. Parcel Monkey have a wide range of discounted couriers who can carry your parcels in this weight category, namely Parcelforce and DX, both of which are very competitive in terms of price and service times. It is important to remember, couriers price their services based on volumetric weight so you will need to provide not only the weight of your item but all the dimensions. Our clever quote engine will then do the hard work, calculate the correct price for your parcel with the couriers we offer.
We really have you covered for 30kg parcel delivery services, from Same Day to Next Day, collection to drop off, just add your details and take your pick!
All parcels booked via our courier quote system have to have their volumetric weight calculated. This establishes a value that all courier companies use to determine the 'bulkiness' of a parcel and hence set prices. A very small item that weighs 25kg may not cost the same to ship as a 5kg parcel. Until you add your requirements into our courier quotes form we can give you an idea if your parcel is too heavy to go through our parcel courier suppliers.
As you can appreciate, we can only give indicative weight limits. If you're looking to send parcels that are 1kg, 2kg, 3kg, even 5kg and 10kg you should be fine. Even parcels that are 12kg, 15kg and heavy items such as boxes of books at 20kg should, generally, be no problem. Items over 25kg and approaching 30kg may be an issue for many courier companies. Delivery size is one factor, time frames and type of service influence the price as well.
Again it will vary as the parcel may be long or tall and cost more, which is why we made our quote engine so simple and quick to use. Likewise it will depend where you want to send the parcel to, as sending goods overseas is understandably more expensive than a domestic one.
Some of our most popular delivery sizes include 1kg, 5kg,15kg. Up 25kg parcel delivery UK to UK can be booked from £7.69 plus VAT if you drop off and just £9.95 plus if collected by Parcelforce 48.
Parcelforce 48 is a firm favourite amongst our customers, as you can send up to 30kg for a great price. Even if your parcel is not only heavy, but large too, they have a 'Large' service for this kind of item.
We have heavily discounted rates with them as we send thousands every week on this service. It is popular as Parcelforce are a trusted brand, you can drop the parcel off or have it collected, and you get £60 protection cover FREE. Tracking is easy and delivery is reliable, so what's not to like?
Simply complete the courier quotes form with the dimensions and we'll be able to give you the cheapest prices and a list of suitable services.
DX Freight handle a lot of our customers 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 and also wrapped correctly and the pallet fit for purpose.
You can also book a Same Day delivery for heavy goods, popular for local delivery especially and for business shippers.
We work with couriers who deliver around the globe and provide full tracking so you know where the parcel is at all times. There is more than just weight to consider when sending overseas from the UK. The 20kg parcel price to France, will of course be different to that of sending to Japan, not to mention some customers may want the parcel to arrive as quickly as possible and will be willing to pay for an Express delivery, whilst others may want to opt for the Economy service like TrakPak.
For heavy items though, it is worth considering our own brand Parcel Monkey services whether that be the Europe by Road or Air Express. These hybrid solutions are collected in the UK by couriers like Parcelforce, sent to a freight forwarder at Heathrow, dispatched overseas and delivered in country more often than not by DHL. The benefit of this is cost, we can be up to 50% cheaper than booking the DHL service, with the only compromise being a one to two day delay in transit time.
