Delivered on time
Easy to use and very reasonable on price
Great first delivery, buyer, very happy to. Fair value and secure service.
We have used Parcel Monkey three times now to send a parcel to family in Lithuania. This time we sent it a little earlier (third week in November) to get there before Christmas. It arrived quickly just after a week. The previous two times there had been a delay when it got to Lithuania, although they still arrived in time for Christmas. This time it arrived super quick. We used drop off at Currys with DPD which was easy. It definitely saves you money using Parcel Monkey.
Great service. Easy to use and excellent value.
Used for the past 4 years to send family Christmas and birthday presents from UK to the Czech Republic. Two large boxes - total weight 16Kg, took just under 3 days from drop-off to delivery (in November 2019) - great organisation and service -thanks!
