We certainly do, some of the cheapest around, meaning Europe is one of the most sought after locations of customers using Parcel Monkey. We have extensive access to all points of Europe via both airmail and road delivery. 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.
If you 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 are 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. Shipping to Russia can take longer and it is notorious for being pricey to send their with couriers quoting around the £50 mark, where as we sell the very same service from about £20 - so do make use of our great prices as we can help those looking to ship there save with our TrakPak and Parcelforce rates.
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.

Oh yes. Not only do we now offer the ParcelForce service into Europe along with DHL and DPD at the quicker end of the market, but we also offer TrakPak and Asendia. These two companies are operated by La Poste and Swiss Post and are very economic services with a great track record. We also 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.
All of our services into Europe will generally be cheaper than booking direct with the carriers, as we book so many parcels, we have favourable rates so you can look upon us a affordable shipping service, without compromising on quality.
You will find using DPD Pick Up or Parcelforce Drop Off services to be some of the cheapest rates, so a good option for those looking for Economy parcel delivery to Europe. They are still premium, tracked services, so a great choice for reliability whilst remaining more affordable. There is the added bonus of not having to wait in for the courier to come and collect your parcel as well. You can drop off your parcels at any of the Parcelforce depots listed during the booking process, or, indeed, any of the Post Office branches also listed when you book. We also offer DPD Pick Up, so this means you can drop into any one of their 2.500 DPD Pick Up shops which now include locations at various Matalan and Sainsbury's stores.
Will my parcel be tracked?
When you book with Parcel Monkey, we give a PM order number and you can use this to follow your parcel to delivery. You can also add additional protection cover to your parcel should it be of high value. The recipient can also track the parcel to delivery and as DPD are at the forefront of technology in the delivery sector, if you provide the recipient contact number, they can use the DPD app to tap into the added features. These include Predict and Follow My Parcel which allow them full updates in their own native language, plus choice on how and when their goods are to be delivered.
Do I need Customs documents for shipping to Europe?
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 country where it is required, we will provide the form in the booking process so all you will need to do it print it out and attach it to the box.
We now also offer collections overseas and back into the UK. To access the rates for this select the country you want your parcel to be collected in and the search engine will show you the latest price. We will provide, as we do for exports all the documents need and a shipping label for the sender to attach to the box.
