Highly recommended, because it is my go to website to send a parcel, first of all it is easy comparing all carriers in one page, lower prices than the original carriers websites. never had any issues and, delivery on time

Quick delivery no hassle
Yesterday by Rene Aparicio
Didnt collect on day specified. Tried to blame it on there not being anyone present which wasnt true. Didnt notify us parcel had not been collected. No phone number to call to discuss (as per all parcel companies these days). Had to use online chat and the person answering didnt understand me. Couldnt give me a specific collection and delivery date- he literally said "next week sometime" Arranged second collection which wasnt met. Was told on their website not to get in touch with the delivery co directly (Parcelforce) but this was the only ay we could get a response so thats what we did. We now have a third date which Im hoping will be met, but not sure as communication from Parcel Monkey is very poor. Wont use again.

Everything went really well until my parcel got stuck in the Spanish delivery company. Everything was sorted really quickly by Parcel Monkey, excellent. And Thank you.

Terrific service… I’ve always used them and never had a problem
Yesterday by Simon Alexander
Overall very good. Very easy to use webpage/booking page, easy, simple and straightforward. Lots of good flexibility it collection and delivery. A morning or afternoon specification would be good but then you can’t have everything given the price. I was unable to track my package so maybe the time was specified.
My item arrived with slight damage but then it wasn’t particularly well wrapped for transit. I would definitely use them again. Service and price -excellent

This seems an efficient method of sending a parcel in a short time scale.

I’d not heard of Parcel Monkey before, but so glad I found it! I was returning an order to China.
The cost was going to be more than £70 at the Post Office. Luckily the member of staff recommended Parcel Monkey - so glad she did, as it saved me more than 50% compared to using EXACTLY THE SAME service at the Post Office.
I’ll definitely use the service again - thank you!

Shocking parcelforce have made a complete mess of our delivery and your doing nothing about it and expecting us to pay more money to have our own property returned, to be honest what is the point of a service that does pretty much nothing for you, happy to take your money, but not to sort out issues.

Worked well and I’m pretty sure I saved money.

You responded to my poor review of your service in a typically unprofessional and inaccurate way. My complaint has not been dealt with and you have not furnished me with the telephone number or the call back I requested; not even with the complaints address I asked for. What the contact log does show is the numerous errors and pathetic excuses you came up with. The parcel has been cut open and things have been stolen from it. The driver tried to hide the cuts and explained it as being down to the fact that I packed it badly. You have since told me theres no insurance on it and the loss is all mine. The support tool of parcelmonkey is not helpful either in that you cant upload evidence pictures as the file limit is too small. Lastly, what gives you the right to assume you can call me by my first name and then sign your response "the team"? We will settle this in the small claims court and I promise you, the entire progress will be posted on here (and other social media sites) for all to see. All service companies are defined by the level of service when something goes wrong! You have been defined by your appalling customer service! OH, AND YOU ARE STILL DISPLAYING THE INCORRECT POD DESPITE BEING TOLD BY ME AND Courier.

Excellent! Arrived the next day on a 48 hr service. Will use again.

Sending from UK to NZ 2 parcels and these were the most cost effective company. Quick pick up of parcels, really nice pick up driver. Items made it there in a week, one item delivered first and the second a few days later but all in good condition. Will use again!

Absolutely excellent service from booking, collection to delivery and quick response from customer services. I sent a box over to New Zealand which arrived in 8 days, quicker than the Royal Mail. Would highly recommend as I had such a great experience.

I needed to return a base unit and hadnt used a courier in a while so did a quick comparison online and Parcel Monkey were the cheapest out of the few I checked. No issues with placing the order and collection. Thank you.

Always the most affordable quote, used twice now and both items have arrived safely and on time during lockdowns.

I would give fewer stars if I could. I started using parcel monkey a lot recently for my work. Ive had 2 (one very expensive) parcels lost in the past 3 weeks. 1 has been lost for nearly a month and the other lost for almost 2 weeks. I made Parcel Monkey aware of this, and they insisted they could not call the courier and was waiting for a response to their email. Parcel monkey is supposed to be the liaison between you and the parcel company but seeing as they refuse to speak on the phone to the couriers or me, I proactively made calls to both couriers to get a search for the parcels moving. It took a further 2 weeks of me consistently calling the couriers to get the issue resolved, and all the while, Parcel Monkey did nothing. Once I had confirmation the expensive parcel was lost from the courier, I had to go back to Parcel Monkey, who wanted proof of purchase of the item inside and a note from an already annoyed customer confirming that he had not received the parcel. Since this, I have been told it will take an additional 7 days to be reviewed. Regarding the other lost parcel? Nothing, and now my emails are being ignored. Use Parcel Force or royal mail directly - a bit more expensive but worth it to avoid this.

Collected on the 7th delivered on the 10th. 2.2 metre parcel. Arrived intact and efficiently. Will use again.
14/06/21 by Sam
easy to schedule at a very reasonable cost. Parcel Monkey is a more than excellent company. The Website works well including the bit where you have to create a proforma invoice. The whole customs declaration is a very easy process which is important since the UK decided that alone you stand strong.
For the rest you are dependent on the selected transporter.
