Recommended by Amazon for a return. They were the cheapest I could find. Easy to use, does what it says on the tin!

Parcel monkey provides a dependable service with a range of prices and options. Ive used PM for about three years now with no problems at all. Cheaper too.

All of the parcel monkey side of things were fantastic as usual. The process for sending a parcel to Europe even just to send gifts to family is more complex now with customs regulations etc. And we still dont really know where the package is since Parcel force havent updated the tracking for a week. Maybe the parcel will arrive, who knows.

Do not use them. 2 packages, both valuable did not get to their destination and no level of responsibility from Parcel Monkey. Ive literally lost 400 pounds in goods and delivery cost, with nothing but blaggy customer services from parcel monkey.

First time customer... straight forward process, collection arranged within a few minutes at a very competitive price... clear instructions on how to prepare my parcel and appreciated the advice to consider increasing insurance to cover the value of the contents... also clear advice on certain items which cannot be shipped... prompt collection, great communication throughout, parcel delivered safely quicker than projected - overall, a first class service - no hesitation in recommending.

I’ve rated Parcel Monkey before and my opinion hasn’t changed.
It’s really easy to book online and get a range of options for sending parcels. I’ve used their services several times and have always been impressed with the low cost, excellent service.

to much paperwork probably because of EU rules.

Never lets me down 100%

Parcel was damaged in transit and then delivery driver claims he had made 3 attempts to deliver despite nothing showing on the camera doorbell and no cards left. I eventually had to track down the parcel for the recipient and send them to a local Post Office to pick it up, costing me taxi fare as goodwill gesture and defeating the object of having a door to door delivery.

I wouldnt even give one star! We selected one of their drop off points. Rushed urgent parcels down there (all correctly labelled and paid premium for a 24 hour service). 5 days later, no parcels delivered and were still sat at drop off shop (no one told us). We complained - they said they would be collected. Two days later, they were still there!!! We had to rush and get them and send Royal Mail who did deliver within 24 hours. What is more appalling is their customer service - we asked for a refund to keep getting the same message "your parcels have been collected and no refund is due". They were collected back by us. No apology, no attempt to repair a poor customer service experience. It cost us their delivery, further delivery costs to Royal Mail and 5 refunds on orders for unhappy customers to try and repair our company reputation. Avoid if you want a reliable tracking and delivery company and dont want damage to your business brand.

Good prices and fast delivery to USA via Parcelforce. I would use them again

Had to return items to supplier (4 large boxes). Parcel Monkey were fine, esp the customer service girls. Problem was with the prohibited items list. Took a while to find an acceptable description for self assembly (unassembled) garden furniture to beat the list!

Paid for next day delivery at £120 still waiting 9 days later. ****

Good site to find the cheap parcel service .thank you

Unfortunately this was a terrible choice and my parcel didn’t reach where it was suppose to even after 2 weeks! Worse, have not even received a status on the parcel. I have used other courier services before which were very prompt and wish I had used them again. Never make the mistake again of using this ever again. No assistance or support at all.

Great value with Parcel force! Was meant to take 6-8 days but arrived 14 days later which wasnt a problem as we werent in a rush but would highly recommend!

DPD & parcel monkey are not equipped to send parcels into the EU. Neither understand the new brexit rules on import duties. Customer service is poor always answering a valid question with a question they never resolve a problem. DPD advised item being returned surprise surprise they can no longer find the parcel. Parcel monkey & DPD should be avoided use someone else instead.

Great service thanks

Parcel was delivered on time, but then I got an email saying that I would be charged more because my carefully weighed and measured parcel was not 1.8kg but allegedly 15kg!! I did email PM to say this was impossible but no reply or refund. Beware!

Very convenient service!

Not totally sure how this works, my guess is they take your order and sub contract to one of te major carriers. Problem is the tracking system does not really work. Three days in and it was still saying no information. Information started to appear on day 5 ( a day after it was supposed to be delivered!) Then a message saying it would be delivered in 4 days. But it was actually delivered on the following day!!
As a Service it was price competitive and the parcel got there, but as I say its a bit of a mystery delivery regarding a date.

Thank you for the excellent service you provide at all disposal, grate and we will come back to you.

Great service, thank you. Driver was very kind.

Followed all the guidelines set by PM and the carrier DPD. My parcel was returned to me two days after it had been collected asking for and IOR? PM and DPD were both very unhelpful and I have received no refund. Basically I paid for a parcel to spend a night at a depot somewhere in the UK before it was brought back to me!

Terrible customer service when something goes wrong. Lost my parcel but no compensation as company said theyd delivered. Told to take it up with parcel force who told me to take it up with parcel monkey. Also had lots of late collections when paid for 24 hour service but no reduction of price to even a 48 hour service.
