When you add your parcel delivery details to our quick quote form, you will be able to select a courier from the wide range of reputable delivery agents we work with. You can make a selection based on your personal requirements whether you need quick services with fast shipping times or if you are looking to keep within a tight budget, pick an economy option with the carrier of your choice and they can deliver.
London and the UK as a whole have close ties with Europe when it comes to trade so as well as helping customers with one-off off parcels, we help businesses of all sizes reach the continent for less.
You can also use Parcel Monkey to import parcels into the UK by using our quote engine to compare prices. Just change the country in the 'Collect From' part of the quote box.
If your parcel is time sensitive, we have a service via DHL Express which covers the vast majority of countries in Europe in just 1-2 days. It is a premium price but DHL is one of the most well-networked couriers around and will ensure your parcel arrives fully tracked, quickly.
Due to the expansive and efficient air and road networks within Europe, it does mean we offer a super speedy two-day service for parcel delivery with Parcelforce, DPD and DHL to most of the major shipping destinations on the continent. For some of the more far-reaching and less accessible parts, it can take up to five working days.
Our indicative list of anticipated delivery times for Europe are listed below, the majority of which are estimated 2 days from the UK. The estimated prices to ship to these countries are a starting price and the VAT is not included. You can view the cost inc. VAT when you get a quote.

Not only do we now offer the Parcelforce service into Europe along with DHL and DPD at the quicker expedited end of the market, but we also offer TrakPak and our brand, hybrid delivery services.
All of our courier services into Europe will be cheaper than booking direct with the carriers, as we send many parcels. We have negotiated favourable rates, so you can use our quote engine to find an affordable shipping service, without compromising on quality. As the UK is so well connected to Europe, sometimes booking a road courier service is better value for money.
We offer our very own Parcel Monkey service via Road and Air which is collected in the UK by ParcelForce or DX and then shipped via Freight Forwarder overseas to be delivered, generally by DHL.
This service is very cost effective for big and heavy items that would be expensive to ship using an Air Express service. As Europe is so close and we have such great transport links you can save a lot of money using Parcel Monkey Europe by Road for larger items.
There is obviously a day or two longer on the transit time but you can really save up to and over £100 depending on the size of your item and where you are sending from by booking a Road service next time you send a parcel. Allow a day or two more than a DHL Air Express service and enjoy a fantastic cost saving.
For the vast majority of destinations in Europe, there will be no need to have any customs documents. We take care of any documents that you do need, however, so in the booking process if you are shipping a parcel to a country where it is required, we will provide the form during the booking process so all you will need to do it print it out and attach it to the outside of the box in a clear wallet of envelope marked 'Customs'.
