Problem resolved re lost parcel thanks to Parcel Monkey getting involved, They found it and delivered it safely
easy as making a cup of tea,
Brilliant service and price. Very happy indeed
Pick up was fast, next morning, and the courier provided me with a receipt for proof of postage without asking. I did still need to add an Amazon label to the parcel, however, as the courier turned up without any notice for a timeslot from Parcel Monkey. As a result he took the parcel before I was able to add the label, as he had his own. However, I wouldve felt more comfortable about receiving my refund once the item was returned if Id been able to add the Amazon label aswell.
Easy and Fast Service...
Great service thanks
easy no fuss experience with a super price and service from and to the door
