Parcel Monkey's Europe by Road service allows you to send your parcels into Europe from the UK for less, using our discounted courier rates. It is simply a hybrid set up, and due to the volumes of goods we ship with the couriers involved, they give us low-cost courier rates.
The goods are collected from your home or work address by a premium courier such as Parcelforce, who then take it to a Freight Forwarder who then dispatch the parcel to Europe via Road.
The service comes with full tracking door to door, so you can follow the parcel using the tracking number provided at the time of booking.
Parcel Monkey Europe by Road is perfect service for goods that do not need an Express Courier, which may suit customers who are looking to keep the cost of shipping down. The road service is designed to make customers lives easier as you can still enjoy full door to door tracking. The courier, generally Parcelforce will come to collect your parcel between 8 am and 6 pm.
The only difference would be that the transit time may take a little longer than an air express service, but transit times via road or air into the relatively local market of Europe are all around 2-4 working days anyway.
The Parcel Monkey Europe by Road service comes into its own when sending large or heavy goods, as sending such freight by air can be costly. Shipping these by road is far more cost effective and if you are relocating or have something large to send you can still do so in a reasonable shipping time, without having to spend a fortune.

Send a 40kg parcel to France using this service from £53 + VAT
Send a 40kg parcel to the Republic of Ireland using this service from £50 + VAT
The goods are still shipped by premium courier services, based on our long-standing relationships with carriers such as Parcelforce and DHL who route the parcels via a freight forwarder.
Our Europe by Road courier prices is a fraction of the amount that the more established shipping companies charge and the only sacrifice is an extra day or two for delivery time. The costs are kept low as we provide the couriers with a large volume of orders every day, so in turn, they give us a discounted rate which we pass on to you.
Our courier partners are agile enough to help resolve problems whereas some of the larger couriers would simply return the goods, whereas on this service the utmost effort will be made to fix any problems.

The tracking service provided in your website wouldnt work directly. I had to contact customers service where they provided me with a link to the actual delivery company.. not very straightforward The package arrived ok, though it took a bit longer than expected.
Unfortunately like a previous time i couldnt manage to meet the courier for the collection and i had to drop my parcel at the drop off point. This is something has to be improved, at least giving few hours window, so no one has to wait the whole day for the collection, or providing the courier telephone number. On the other hand i found extremely helpful the staff at the drop off point.
service was very good
Picked up from UK om Monday afternoon, delivered to France on Thursday morning. Excellent service and price
Super fast. Top
Perfect service! I dont have any problem!
very very good
Took three tries before the parcel was collected. The tracking at first said that it would be collected on Monday morning. Later on I got another email that told me it would be collected in Tuesday. Wasnt collected then either so I had to reschedule it. Driver was nice and customer support was fast and able. Ergo 3 stars. Would be great if you would have a number to call and that I wouldnt have to make an account to talk with your chat.
