Students are always keen to save money as and where they can.
Using Parcel Monkey, students can get help with moving in & out of halls or student houses, plus whenever they have something they need to send, maybe books they have sold, they can enjoy cost savings using our cheap courier services.
If you end up going to a university at the opposite end of the country and you just can't transport all your stuff to your new accommodation via friends or family, then a courier service may be just the sort of solution you are looking for.
We've got a range of solutions for you, whether you need an urgent Same Day service or something more economical.
We offer massive discounts to everyone who needs to send a parcel, so we don't offer a specific student discount.
Parcel Monkey resells courier services to the public using our hugely discounted shipping rates in the UK and overseas, which are used frequently by students of all ages. We send so many parcels, that the courier companies offer us much lower rates- which we resell to the public.
We don't offer voucher codes either for the same reason, as our low prices cannot be lowered any more than what they currently sit at as our aim is to bring the best deals to you all of the time.
You will struggle to find a service that is cheaper than ours, plus you can add protection cover to your items when you book with Parcel Monkey and we offer full tracking and Live Chat should you need assistance.

As of 2014-15, there was a total of 436,585 International Students in the UK, 19% of the total student population, many of whom want to send the odd item home, and we are here to help. By far and away the most popular courier destination looked up by International Students on our site is to China, and this is mainly down to the fact there are over 89,500 Chinese students currently in Higher Education. Send a parcel to China from £14.79 and enjoy a quick and tracked service.
The UK is well known to be a popular destination for foreign students and this reflected in the Higher Education statistics and its no wonder with our Universities list as some of the top performing in the world. Students from India, Nigeria, Malaysia and the United States makes up some of the broad range of foreign nationals enjoying life in the UK.
Parcel Monkey has recently gone live with our global platform, so goods can be shipped from anywhere to anywhere. Our global shipping marketplace is a great service for students looking out for a bargain overseas, looking to send to friends or family who live in another location to them or for selling goods online to raise extra funds.
Parents are often sending their children some extra clothes, books or gifts and rather than have to haul items up and down in a suitcase if going to study elsewhere it can be far more cost-effective to book a courier service to deliver it for you, even if they live abroad.
Often you may need to send small items through the postal networks such as books that you have forgotten to return to the library. You may also need to send to friends also studying to help them out, or even if you've forgotten your work after a holiday or reading week, our services are perfect for these scenarios as you can choose to spend a little extra for urgent tracked services or go for the cheapest option.
A common problem with the courier world and one that puts students off is having to wait in for a driver.
This is why we have a couple of services that mean you print the labels at home and can drop them into a Parcelforce Drop Off location, one of their depots is the cheapest way to do this should you live nearby one. Failing this the majority of Post Offices will accept these drop off's and our quote engine will use your Post Code when you book to list your nearest options.
Likewise, DPD Pick Up is a drop off service, and they have over 2,500 locations across the UK to choose from. So print out at home or in the library and drop off at your convenience, even on the weekend, as long as the drop off point is open. Even better, you can book DPD from just £5.99 so it is a great option all around.
It can also be tricky for the courier coming to collect from halls and trying to track the parcel down. The courier won't wait around for a manifest full of orders so make a note if you book a collection of where the parcel will be, on the Parcel Monkey booking form. Ideally, leave the parcel at the reception of your halls.
