I like the service. It gives you choice...price or speed of delivery. I discovered that the price and delivery time you get quoted of an evening can then differ the following morning. So I am learning how to use the service and if you like the quotation then go for it. A keen price is what attracts me to choose ParcelHero. When shipping larger items this can work out just too expensive but parcelHero make it possible . I plan to continue using this service and want to know how I can collect more discounts to encourage me to keep on choosing Parcelhero.
We are a small user of carriers and was recommended to your service. Our first experience was very good.
Great service keep me informed the whole journey plenty options to choose from.will definitely be using again
I've nothing but praise for the ParcelHero experience I've had. I sent two large 20kg boxes across the country - arranging it was made easy by the website who source the options. I couldn't be happier and I'll definitely use them again.
The parcel was picked up on time and arrived at its destination 2 days earlier than expected. Great service
It has been a pleasure in using ParcelHero for third time now, best and very competitive rates and always delivered in time as promised. Very pleased and will recommend to all my friends
We were very pleased with the efficiency of the company< I think 10 minutes after printing the label a driver was here and he helped me as it was the 1st time we have used this company, he was great. My daughter advised me the parcel arrived and everyone was pleased it arrived the day it was stated. I do not think it can be improved.
Excellent, quick (24hr turn around) and excellent value. The only thing I would say is that I Was organising this on behalf of an eBay seller and I was unsure if he had received the labels or not (didn't seem to be a way of me emailing them manually). Turned out he had - but I didn't have any way of finding this out....
Excellent prices, quick reliable delivery. It would help to know what time a parcel is likely to be collected though.
So impressed with the service. Parcel was collected as planned and was delivered next day to USA - I didnt even know that was possible.

Like all of our courier partners, we work with ParcelForce because they offer speed, convenience and a top quality delivery service. Because we know they’re the best, we can offer £50 of free damage and loss cover on every shipment.
For most ParcelForce services, you can choose from having your parcel collected from your front door or to drop it off at your local Post Office. When you book for collection, ParcelHero will send you all the paperwork you need. The only exception to this is when you book next day collection, in which case the courier will bring your labels with them, so there’s no need to print them.
Save time and money with ParcelForce, by dropping off your parcel at one of over 10,000 Post Office locations across the UK. International destinations are not left out either – there are designated drop off locations, where you can drop off or collect your parcels, and save while you do so.
Don't wait around for a collection - drop off your parcel at your convenience.
Choose from over 11,000 local Post Offices to collect or drop-off your parcel.
Many Post Office locations are open extended hours.
It’s easy to check how your ParcelForce package is getting on. Just enter the tracking number we gave you when you booked into our tracking system.
You’ll be able to see exactly where and when your parcel was last scanned.
Though ParcelForce is well equipped to deal with parcels of many shapes and sizes, there are some rules about what you can send to ensure safe carriage.
Some goods are also considered hazardous to carry, and are prohibited for shipping with ParcelHero. We also refuse to carry illegal goods. You can find out more on ParcelHero’s list of prohibited items.
While ParcelForce makes use of the Royal Mail’s extensive UK network, they also deliver to destinations all over the world through ParcelForce Worldwide.
