The delivery of the parcel was fine However, when completing the shipping label, in error I entered an incorrect weight, unfortunately I paid for it before I realized I then created a new label with the correct weight, and used this to send the parcel, thinking I would claim the £8.65 back. Thats when the trouble started. Believe it or not, in this day and age of electronic transfer, you can only contact parcelmonkey by post to claim a refund!!!! There is no email, no phone no. Overall, an extremely poor customer service

I was charged 145 chf for my parcel. When I asked Swiss Post why they said because there was no contents label on the box. I filled a contents label for personal belongings and have it to the courier. He must have forgotten to put it on the box so Swiss customs charged me 145 chf for my daughters used clothes!

I used parcelforce for a number of years then they transferred to parcel monkey. The service is brilliant. I am 76 years old and travel to Scotland to see family 3 to 4 times a year. I send my suitcase via parcel monkey and it is fantastic. I speak to passengers on the train and say where my suitcase is and they write down your details as they think its a great way to free yourself from carrying suitcase.

I used Parcel Monkey to send a parcel and Parcel Force were the least expensive so sent the parcel with them. The parcel was delivered the next day so I cant fault this service.

Marvellous service. We have used Parcel Monkey on 3 occasions to send parcels to Canada. The service is reasonably priced, extremely reliable and very fast. Highly recommend!

I use Parcel Monkey all the time for parcels I need to send that are over 1kg in weight. I send parcels in the UK and also abroad (Geneva, France, Germany and Guernsey usually) and have never, touch wood, had a problem with them. Easy to book and pay, you either take it somewhere local to be picked up, but I usually have them pick it up from my house.
Royal Mail and Parcelforce seem to be OK with packages less than 1kg, but expensive for parcels over 1kg. I booked through Parcel Monkey as they are a lot cheaper, but yet it is Parcelforce who generally come and pick it up.
Would recommend them to anyone.

Picked up on time and delivered very quickly

I sent the parcel using parcel monkey to return a product which I bought from the amazon. But the seller is saying that he didn’t receive the parcel and he is not processing the refund which is 30£ (on top I spent ~19.99£ to send the parcel, total loss £50). It’s good if parcel monkey can provide some proof of the delivery for further deliveries to avoid such issues.

Delivery was not attempted, Parcel Monkey lying regarding their obligations whilst trying to resolve the problem. Not great is it?

I found parcel monkey to be a very efficient & reliable service. The website was easy to negotiate with all the information set out clearly & was easy to follow. I would absolutely commend the service to anyone looking for a parcel courier comparison site.

Always great and efficient service at a reasonable cost

Very easy to use site (compared to the Post Offices!) giving the correct fee and straightforward instructions for completing all the necessary documentation for shipping a childs book to the Netherlands (thank you, Brexiteers).
Will use again when need to send something.

Driver collected cooker, on delivery cooker components we’re missing worth £120 and cooker handle damaged by driver. Repairs costing myself seller £150. Insurance by Parcel Monkey £150 paid by Buyer not covering any of the damages made by driver. All in all terrible experience. Avoid courier company Parcel Monkey! Worst Experience.

Easy to use, no-nonsense

A great place to find the right people to deliver your parcel. Easy to use and to arrange.

This is my first review ever, but I think it is worth writing. This is by far one of the worst experiences I have had with a company. Their customer service is incredibly unhelpful and provided generic unhelpful instructions. I was asked to reissue an export invoice numerous times with varying instructions and was handled by different members of the customer service teams on every occasion (why not just have one person to handle the case until it is closed?). I asked for a refund and wanted to cancel my order to which I was provided incorrect reasons for refusing to do so (the reasons were not outlined in their terms, which implied that I could cancel my order for a minimal charge). Unpleasant experience for someone in the process of moving to another country.
