In some instances, if you have a heavy item that needs to be moved locally, consider the Parcel Monkey Local option, City Sprint. 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.
A City Sprint driver will go to the location where the goods need to be picked up, take the goods from the address and bring them straight to the point of delivery. You can even select a collection slot for them to arrive and follow the van's movement to delivery.
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 simple and affordable Man & Van courier service.
Our UK courier services aren't however just limited to Same Day delivery. We cover the vast majority of the UK through the national couriers we work with, so booking a courier local to you is simple and by booking online with Parcel Monkey you can enjoy discounted rates.
A courier booked online with Parcel Monkey can come to collect everything from furniture to time-sensitive items like documents. We have helped our customers book a local courier to collect-
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 an eBay, Gumtree or Facebook Marketplace seller, so make the most of our local delivery service!
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.
Our courier quote engine will help you work out the exact price - just enter your parcel weight, dimensions and where you are sending from and to.
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.
Due to the fact we give City Sprint large volumes of customer orders, they, in turn, give us lower rates, which we pass on to our customers so that when you want to arrange a local delivery service, you can do so cheaply.
We don't claim to be a house removal service. But if there are the odd bits that need moving our local courier service is a good option.
Just add the postcodes to the quote engine and any other details it asks for and van will be sent to your collection point and take your belongings direct to the delivery address. It is nice to think your goods will not be transported to a warehouse or go from location to location and also nice to think if you book the Parcel Monkey Local solution when the goods arrive you don't have to worry about returning any hire vehicles!
Most couriers including the ones we offer operate on weekdays unless you pay a premium for a weekend delivery. However, if you need a Same Day local specialist, City Sprint is always on hand. They are available to book 24/7, 365 days of the year - so perfect for any last minute jobs!
