The Republic of Armenia is a landlocked country bordered by Azerbaijan, Turkey, Iran and Georgia with a capital that is some 2,813 miles from London by road to the Armenian capital of Yerevan. Some see Armenia as not being part of Europe as the culture is so radically different to that of Western Europe given that it has a distinctly Middle-Eastern feel to it.
The country was part of the old Soviet Union but had its independence finalised on Christmas Day 1991 but there have been continuing tensions in the region which resulted in a rail and air blockade of Armenian by Azerbaijan in 1993 which was a major issue for the country as 85% of its cargo imports arrived via rail.

In 2011 Forbes Magazine stated that it had only one other country had a worse economy than it. Although recently Armenia was ranked 28th most economically free country in the world ahead of Portugal, Italy, France and Austria.
Previously the Armenian economy was heavily dependent on industry such as chemicals, synthetic rubber, textiles which required great imports of raw materials; it has managed to shift itself on to a more stable footing including the mining of precious metals, the manufacturer of jewellery and communications technologies. This transition from an industry-led, centrally-planned economy to one based on free-market principles wasn't a painless one. During 1989, when independence was first declared to 1993 the economy shrank by nearly 60% and witnessed significant hyperinflation.
If you're a pioneer and doing business with companies in Armenia, or have friends or family in the country then you might like to take advantage of our cheap courier prices for those of you who wish to send a parcel to Armenia. Shipping rates will be dependent on the dimensions of your parcel, but typically a 1kg light-weight parcel would cost Â£26.99 for a two to three day delivery - from the date of collection. A heavier parcel, perhaps at 10kg, would cost more at around Â£78.99, whilst a pretty heavy parcel would cost approximately Â£132.99 via DHL Air Express.
Of course Armenia, at the time of writing, isn't within the European Union; hence there are some import restrictions. They do have a PDF of information; however, this is over 50mb in size.

From the Embassy of the Republic of Armenia in Washington, DC, USA we found a page that details the customs code with a list of prohibitions:
Import of goods and means of transportation into the customs territory of the Republic of Armenia and export thereof out of the customs territory of the Republic of Armenia may be prohibited if these goods and means of transportation endanger or may endanger the state and national security, public order, the moral values of the population, human life and health, the protection of animals and plants and the environment, objects of art and historical monuments, personal property (including intellectual property), rights and interests.
From elsewhere we believe that there are restrictions on importing antiques, art, carpets and paintings, jewellery as well as items of food or bedding if the country of origin is Turkey. Furthermore, there are possibly restrictions on ingots of precious metals and bank notes.
It would be great if you offered a service for business. Thanks www.pdrcrazy.com
I had to wait all day for the courier to pick up. Would be good to give a time window (am or pm) even for collection of parcels.
Thank you very much for your excellent service.
Excellent speedy service, use Parcel Monkey for international deliveries on a regular basis, and never had a reason to complain!
Brilliant service, very fast, very efficient, and the collecting guy was extremely helpful and courtesous!
Great web site, quotation process & collection but unable parcel to track via DHL site.
Amazingly cheap. Thats the first thing. Thats great! However the two-day delivery time was not honoured at all. I recently sent four packages. One arrived in two days. Two took three days and one took four days. I did not mark the packages fragile (I assumed that a 30kg package wasnt likely to get thrown very far) but it was clear they got tossed about a fair bit. Although quite tightly packed, the contents had moved around a lot. Some CDs and cases were cracked or broken and a small coffee table leg got a bit broken too. Ive used them before, all in all Ive sent six packages and theyve all arrived eventually with nothing missing. Id highly recommend for non-time-critical deliveries of items unlikely to break (great for gradually moving a record collection from UK to Germany!). Extremely cheap!
This was easy to use with lots of choice on the courier type of service needed and speed of delivery. I requested a signature as needed proof of delivery and this has been provided on both occasions I have used the service. Happy to recommend.
They were very fast and careful with my parcel. I believe parcel monkey has the cheapest prices for larger parcel in the UK. I only use parcel force through them, due to being disabled and my printer plays me up every so often. I just wrote the name on it and I know they have the label to stick over it. And 24 hours door to door is the fastest service as well. Wish they did smaller parcels too. I would use them then for all my parcels.
Excellent as always, thank you.
