Are you looking for a courier company that can deliver your parcel, documents or large goods over a short distance?
If you have an item that needs to be moved locally, consider Parcel Monkey Local our local courier option, the Same Day City Sprint service. The driver will go to the location where the goods need to be picked up with a vehicle that suits your needs, take the goods from the address and bring them straight to the point of delivery. You can select a collection slot for them to arrive in, then once the item is collected you can follow the van's movement via the tracking tool to delivery.
If sending items locally, why bother with the hassle and stress of hiring a van, collecting the van, collecting the goods, taking them to the address and then having to return the van, when you can opt to book this Man & Van courier service.
City Sprint is a perfect service for moving the majority of goods locally. Customers frequently use the Parcel Monkey Local option, City Sprint to collect furniture or large goods, as well as important documents. This is as they offer a selection of vehicles to handle goods of all shapes and sizes. Some stores such as Ikea offer their own delivery option, but if you live locally it can be more cost-effective to book a collection slot with a courier service.
You might have something you have bought at the garden centre, or at a store in town that is too big for the car, or you might be moving fence panels or collecting a chair from a eBay, Gumtree or Facebook Marketplace seller, so make the most of our local delivery service. Just get a quote based on the size of the item, book in your slot and a Man & Van will shortly be along to pick it up. Equally, if you run a small business, and you need to send an item to a local consumer, you can book this service to deliver it to directly to them, a valuable option for many smaller businesses.
A prime example of where you can save on the cost of a local delivery service is with Ikea items. Ikea charge £25 to £35 for a delivery to your home address, so you might find you can save money by booking City Sprint to come and take the item from Ikea and deliver to you for less depending on where you live. Likewise when buying from online marketplaces, like Gumtree, often the item will be too big to put in a car to use this simple and affordable process to get the item delivered.
It really depends on a number of factors, namely the size of vehicle you require and where you are sending the item to. If you use this service for long distances it may not be the most cost-effective solution, but for local delivery, this is a great choice. The price advantage if moving goods locally can be significant compared to the cost of hiring a van and the fuel involved in doing so.
The Parcel Monkey Local quote engine will show you the exact cost you will need to pay before you book, in a matter of seconds. Weight is not so much a factor in the cost of local delivery services, more the size of the vehicle, so this is a suitable service for very heavy items.
It is important to note that someone at the delivery address will need to be around to accept the goods, which should not be a problem seeing as the service is Same Day and timeframe for local delivery will be relatively quick.
But I need a local courier because I'm moving house
That's fine. Let's say you're moving home and want a small van to deliver up to 500kg of your household possessions about 9 miles away. Just add the postcodes to the quote engine and any other details it asks for and van will be sent to your collection point, take the goods direct to the recipient and all for a great price. It is nice to think your goods will not be transported to a warehouse or go from location to location, they will come direct door to door. It is also nice to think if you book City Sprint, the Parcel Monkey Local solution when the goods arrive you don't have to worry about returning any hire vehicles!
