For those of you who prefer to use Royal Mail and their Parcelforce courier services, we have great news for you. Not only do we offer the Parcelforce Express 24 Next Day parcel delivery service, but we also offer the cheaper, two days, Parcelforce Express 48 hour courier service. We can help keep the cost of parcel delivery down, as we have access to this low cost solution due to the vast amount of volume we provide Parcelforce with, and pass on our lower rates to those who book via our quote engine.
Parcelforce 48 is aimed at people who want to have their parcel delivered around the UK, for less. The service is fully tracked, comes with FREE protection cover up to the value of £60 and can also handle large and heavy parcels. If you have a large, heavy item the quote engine will provide you with our Parcelforce Large service, also heavily discounted as opposed to booking it elsewhere. Not only this, the courier also brings the shipping label with them to the collection point, ideal for those who don't have a printer or want a parcel collected from someone else.
The process of shipping on the cost effective Parcelforce 48 is very simple and uses our highly-regarded quick courier quotes system, that allows you to arrange the delivery of your parcel or packages within five minutes of entering in their dimensions. If you would consider using other courier companies we also show the prices for their various services too so you can compare the delivery times and prices – we want you to get a great deal of course.
You can make further cost savings by booking Parcelforce 48 as a drop off service, allowing you the convenience of dropping the parcel off at a suitable time for you to any one of the 11,000 Post Offices or one of the 54 depots. This saves you a little more as the cost to the courier is less as they do not need to come to collect the parcel from a home or work address, perfect for those customers who want to make the biggest savings. Parcelforce 48 Drop Off is popular with shippers who don't want to wait at home for a collection or require a time slot due to work commitments. So if you want the best from our Parcelforce 48 price list, drop off is the way to go!
Your parcel will be collected and delivered by the courier, it'll be delivered within two days, you can track your delivery online, and you'll get £60 loss/damage cover included - but please do check our prohibited / no compensation items list. If booking a drop off service, we will show you the nearest drop off location in the booking process. Please note this service is based on working days. If you need a parcel to be delivered on Saturday or Sunday select one of those weekend services.
Whenever you book for a parcel to be delivered with us, we'll give you access to the full tracking facilities from with your Parcel Monkey account. You can either use our full PM order number provided to you at the time of booking, or you can use the Parcelforce tracking number on their website. The beauty of booking online via the Parcel Monkey quote engine is that you can save money on the 48 hour service, without losing any of its premium quality. The parcel is collected and handled by Parcelforce themselves, exactly the same as if you booked directly or sent from a Post Office, but for a fraction of the price.
Many of our customers are eBay sellers, so tracking is key, which is why we provide all the tracking details you need and the option to add protection cover on your booking. You may find if sending to a remote location that the only service that comes up from Parcelfoce is the 48 service, which will be down to the fact the courier cannot deliver within the 24 hour time frame, so the 48 service is the next best thing.
Generally your parcel will be delivered within 48 hours within the Parcelforce zones 1 and 3 which are England, Wales and Scotland excluding parts of the Highlands and Islands (IV, HS, KA27-28, KW, PA20-49, PA60-78, PH17-26, PH30-44, PH49-50, ZE), and Northern Ireland, Isle of Man and Isles of Scilly (with the postcodes BT, IM, TR21-25), this doesn't include the Channel Islands.
Deliveries to those Highlands and Islands addresses take 3 to 4 working days.
