I was extremely pleased with the service I received from ParcelHero. The reviews were good and I needed a courier which accepted larger and heavier parcels. The web-site was easy to negotiate with help on hand if needed. The young man who arrived, on schedule, to collect my parcel was very polite, friendly and helpful. The parcel was delivered the following day as promised, and an email sent to advise me of this. Although not in the habit of sending parcels, I would certainly use ParcelHero again!
I was extremely pleased with the service provided by Parcelhero and would certainly use them again. They helped me out of a tricky situation when another well known company were unable to assist due to the size and weight of the package. I would definitely use them again and would recommend them to all my family and friends.
Excellent service. Was able to track the parcel from start to finish. Would definitely use Parcel Hero again.
From the very start using ParcelHero was straight forward and easy, the website is very user friendly, the service I recieved from Customer Care was outstanding, a very polite and well spoken fella on the end of the phone, easy to drop off at your most local collection point, trackable and delivery notification, all in all a pleasure to do business with, reasonably priced, prompt service and have gained my trust for future use and would definitely recommend to my friends and family.
Excellent service. Great price, more competitive than other companies. Able to choose pick up time and parcels were collected promptly. Highly recommended, would definitely use again

I booked a same day collection online and at the time of booking it say collection after 2 pm as it was close to that time so I prepared myself to spend a whole afternoon waiting when he guy knocked on my door only 1.5 after booking. Very good. Also it said the delivery ( UK-ITALY) would be done the next day, so in the morning when I was texting my cousin the details of the delivery she sent me a photo of the UPS van outside. Incredible I think!!

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.
