DPD Classic specialises in the delivery of parcels to Europe, handling over 2.5 million parcels a day. Their fleet of 26,000 vehicles operates direct overnight links between 60 International road hubs and 800 depots in over 20 European countries.
If you book a DPD Classic courier online they will come and collect the parcel from your home or work address between 8 am and 6 pm. DPD do often text you an hour collection window prior to collection so you know approximately when they are due to make the collection.
DPD Classic is affordable but is also a premium courier service, using the latest in tracking technology.
You and the recipient can download the DPD app and get updates throughout the delivery, plus enjoy the 'in-flight' options so that you can change the delivery details to match your needs. Maybe the recipient won't be home so they can request delivery to a neighbour or to a local DPD Pickup store.
Always provide the recipient contact number in the booking process so that they can receive all the updates from DPD.
DPD Classic services are great value for large and heavy items as they are sent generally via Road, meaning lower costs to pay.
There is no need to have to carry a heavy parcel to the Post Office or Drop Off point as the courier will come to collect directly from you and transport your goods to the continent both quickly and safely.
Transit times for DPD Classic into Europe are generally very quick due to the great transport links they have across the continent.
DPD Classic, of course, covers many other destinations across Europe with delivery times of 2-8 days depending on where you are shipping to. Any estimated transit times are provided on the quote results page so that you know how long it will take to send your parcel.
For all DPD services including DPD Classic, where Customs Documents are required, this is done so in the booking process. Parcel Monkey will send your customs invoice electronically to DPD so you just need to print and attach the shipping label.
You can send items up to 30kg in weight via DPD. Do not attempt to send any items that contain batteries, as they are prohibited items and will be returned by DPD.
Great service! Quick and reliable!
Parcels were picked up the Wednesday morning and delivered in France the Friday morning. Very impressed. One thing recommend is to make sure that your parcel is sturdy and taped well. I watched the delivery man in France take the parcels out of the man and he literally dropped them on the floor. Fortunately I had nothing breakable inside.
I have used the Parcel Monkey services quite a few times now. Without reservation, they are excellent. Sometimes, the carrier (selected by me, always DPD) has been disappointing (boxes delivered looking like they have been jumped on, contents exposed, once delivered to a neighbours) but they got delivered on time. And my latest order was delivered in very good shape. Overall, I have to say that that Parcel Monkey offers a reliable service that is great value for money as long as you pack and tape your boxes securely.
A job well done!
Excellent. Easy to order, perfect pickup, and quick delivery.
Delivery was fast and cheaper than e.g. Royal Mail. First pick up time was missed though because the driver came earlier than announced. Rearrangement was easy though but the additional wait was in my case a bit inconvenient.
DPD was quick picking my parcel up but am disappointed as parcel still hasn’t been delivered saying not enough information
