We have a cost effective large and heavy parcel delivery service with DX Freight and it's perfect for sending parcels or items with irregular dimensions which most other carriers could not transport. Tuffnells are now also available to book via our quote engine for those big boxes plus they offer a pallet delivery service.
We also offer the Parcelforce 48 hour large service for items up to 30kg in weight but with bigger dimensions collected and delivered within the UK.
No printer required for the barcoded label as the courier will bring this. If sending more than one parcel we advise our customers to label all items with the optional address labels we provide.
Large, heavy and awkward shaped parcels can be sent via DX Freight from just £19.29 (+ VAT)
Parcelforce 48 Large is a 2 working day delivery £28.89 (+ VAT) for items up to 30kg. You can now also book Parcelforce 24 Large for Next Working Day delivery.

Simply get a quote as usual and if you item is too large for any of normal carrier services, the DX Freight or Parcelforce options will appear. Click here to make a booking. You should also consider if you are only moving the goods over a short distance, the Parcel Monkey Local option perfect for store collections, Gumtree collections or similiar type goods, which is collected and delivered by City Sprint's Same Day service.
We certainly can do. With our same day parcel delivery service, you have the opportunity to have your items transported throughout the UK - the same day - up to 100kg in combined weight.
With this service you can book a 15 minute time slot for your items to be collected - day or night, and even on a Saturday or Sunday. This is a premium service, so prices are going to be higher than our heavy, one man team, service via DX Freight, but if you need items moving quickly such as if you're moving home, having DIY purchases delivered, or needing some exhibition stands shipped to the venue, then this could be a reasonable service for you.
That's entirely up to you. It's simply a case of filling out the quick quote form and getting a list of prices if a next working day service is required, or the same day form if you need an urgent delivery or up to 1000kg in weight or 2.5m in length.
We do have a list of prohibited items that you should always read through if you're going to send a large heavy parcel, but we've successfully shipped a wide variety of items such as car parts, boilers, bed frames, sofas, snooker tables, roof racks, gym equipment, car axles, gearboxes, golf clubs and dining tables - amongst other heavy items. Ugly freight as it is termed in the industry, can be the most difficult to get a reasonable price to ship for. We aim to help you make light work of large parcel delivery, so get a quote and make the most of cost effective large courier options.
The prices for sending very large, heavy parcels abroad are understandably very much different than sending within the UK. It would simply be a case of doing a quote using the form above and then reviewing the prices.
If you are sending a large and heavy parcel within mainland Europe then we do offer a road service with Parcelforce which is very competitive so make sure you look at for that in the list of available services, whilst our own Parcel Monkey Europe by Road comes into its own for shipping large and heavy parcels to the continent.
Firstly the most important piece of advice is to make sure that you choose a courier capable of doing the shipping for you. We can work out if we can help in a matter of seconds as the quote engine will display the large courier services we have for your item or if it is too large, then the quote engine will inform you of this. When you place the dimensions and weight into the quote form it's important that you give correct information as we'll use that to automatically select a range of couriers able fulfil your order.
It's also important to note that some very heavy items may require assistance at the destination address to bring the item from the lorry/van to your doorstep. You should be notified of this during the booking process.
Also, as with any parcel, it's crucial that it's protected for the journey - perhaps more so with large, bulky or heavy items as there is often more weight and pressure against the packaging from within.
We can help you arrange large parcel delivery to Ireland as we have some very cost effective shipping rates via DHL and our own brand Europe by Road services. However, instead of being transported by DX Freight, it is likely that your item will be collected and delivered by DHL, whilst if you book the Parcel Monkey branded service it will be collected in the UK by DX or Parcelforce and sent to a Freight Forwarder. You would typically have the choice of a 1 day air service or a road service over 2 days.
We can also help you to send a large parcel to Northern Ireland via DHL, but also via our low cost DX Freight service.
At Parcel Monkey we aim to have a service to meet the needs of every customer, so we offer Next Day delivery service for large heavy items with DX Freight and have recently also added the Parcelforce 24 Large option, so that if you are sending big bulky goods you can save by booking via the Parcel Monkey quote engine, even if the delivery is urgent.
