Easy drop off points or collect from home/work, parcels delivered on time both in the UK and Florida.
Prompt service and I was well informed of when the parcel had arrived at it's destination.
Courier bang on time and package delivered across the 'pond' within 20 hours ! Very impressed.
I needed a heavy package picked up from a small town in Wales and delivered to a near village near Windsor. When I discovered ParcelHero via Google and used their web-site for a quote, alarm bells started to ring because it seemed too good to be true. I was informed that it would be collected by UPS that afternoon and delivered to me the following afternoon, and whatsmore they were going to charge me less than a tenner! I decided to take a punt and was not disappointed; the site was easy to use to book the job in and gave me a label to forward to the person sending it on my behalf. It was all so simple, so cheap and oh-so hassle-free. I cannot recommend highly enough.
Parcel was picked up within 30 minutes of booking and an email was received to let me know when the parcel was delivered and who signed for it.

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.
