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 Germany using this service from around £52 + VAT
Send a 40kg parcel to Italy using this service from around £60 + VAT
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.

It is sad to spend Christmas without my daughter & grandchildren, but I put all my faith in you to deliver their Christmas presents from nanny & grandad , fast and efficiently I cannot Thankyou enough. Merry Christmas & a very prosperous New Year. Thankyou again Definitely recommend to family & friends
Excellent fast, friendly service. Thank you!
Very good service.
I have used the service a couple of times (to send large and small parcels) from Scotland to the North of Italy and I have never been disappointed! The deliveries didnt take so long and they are quite cheap if you book in advance! I appreciate that we can print our labels although it might not be handy if you do not have a printer at home!
Parcel arrived to the destination with no trouble at all!
Were very quick for picking up and delivering but am disappointed with their customer service as I have just received an email saying they are now taking additional £10 from me as the weight was more. Even though the box I sent the parcel in was the original from a company i received it from and it states the size and weight on the box so dont understand how they can say it weighs more. If you go with parcel monkey be prepared to pay extra 2 weeks later after parcel has been delivered
I sent a 55 inch tv to poland from the uk, the tv got there but lots of damage to the box on arrival but luckily I packaged well and no damage! It was supposed to be delivery by road but courier said he picked up from airport so maybe not by road as booked!
