Ordered on line at 10am on Tuesday. Parcel delivered to Eugene OR USA on Wednesday 1.30pm. Outstanding service.
On time, polite, helpful, delivered as promised and 60% cheaper than competitors. I will use the service again.
Had some confusion when email received saying DDP had tried to deliver a parcel to the Netherlands at 00.46 Contacted Parcel hero who looked into the matter and emailed back straight away to say that the driver had actually not attempted to deliver but had run out of time and delivery would be made later in the day. Parcel arrived as planned later that day. Would definitely use Parcel Hero again.
Brilliant service for 2 parcels from UK to Canada fully tracked via fedex every step of the way. Highly recommend.
Excellent service and excellent price. Lovely people who go out of their way to make it so easy. I needed to get a new propeller from the West Country to Lancashire. No problem! I already have told everyone how great you are!
Some trouble signing in and booking this time, but as usual picked up promptly and delivered in perfect condition as booked. Cannot fault service.
Online instructions were clear and easy to follow, placed order at 12.30pm on Monday The parcels were collected at 1.30 pm on Monday and delivered to my daughter in law in the south of France on Tuesday afternoon. Good service eh? Thank you.
Ordered service for pickup at 14.30. Driver was at my house in Bracknell by 14.40.Driver was very professional. Arcam AVR400 was delivered the next morning in Liverpool . Amazing service. Thank you.
Picked up on time & delivered on specified day and was able to track its progress Very few carriers would take a 220 x 33 x 18cm parcel withou it costing more than the item I was returning. Would definitely recommend this carrier.
I was very pleased with the service and highly recommend it. I would use it again.

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 as standard*.
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.
