The service was easy to use and the driver was most helpful. I would have no doubt about using ParcelHero again
Parcel Hero gives you many quotes for times and costs of sending parcels abroad. I opted for UPS this time and my parcel was picked up the next morning at 9.00am and I was emailed to say it would be delivered to Finland on 18th November. I received a text from my daughter-in-law on 18th saying the parcel had arrived. Amazing courier service and at an affordable price compared to postage. I would definitely recommend this service.
Very simple to use, the parcel was collected and delivered as scheduled. I will be using this service again.
The parcel was collected on the chosen day, and delivered one day in advance. Smooth process overall, very happy with the service’
Excellent service, my frist time useing this company will be useing again, it was all straight forward for a novice
ParcelHero have a no nonsense website to book your parcel collection with plenty of service choice at competitive rates.
Handled a complicated delivery to Spain with 7 large and heavy boxes - other delivery companies have had trouble getting parcels to us - but for UPS it was easy - polite and obliging driver as a bonus!
Tracking code enabled my sister to find out delivery time and arrange to be in. Collection next day and delivery on the date promised.Collector very helpful when I could not print label and said I could take parcel to a collection point only 1km away.
I could not print the label sent by e mail so it was sent by customer services as pdf which I can print. Superb service which enabled me to get the parcel to the collection point in time for collection that day.
Thank you ParcelHero! My paintings got back home safe, sound, for a good price and in time! London-> Athens ?? I'll def recommend and buy from you again ??
Really easy to use. UPS collected on time and it arrived at the location within the delivery dates. Super pleased! Would 100% use again.

The UPS tracking information includes real time scan information for both UK and international tracking, so you can always see your parcel's progress no matter where you are sending to. With ParcelHero it's easy to track your shipment; simply enter your UPS tracking number into our tracking page, and view the real time status and location of your shipment. What's more if your shipment is delayed, we'll keep you updated with email alerts and help you resolve any issues.
When tracking your shipment, you should look out for 'exception scans' as these could indicate that there's a delay with your delivery. The exception scans will alert you to the reason for delay. If you're shipping internationally, a common cause of delay is customs clearance issues which normally require the receiver to contact UPS in the destination country. When you track your shipment, if you see that it's arrived in the destination country and the shipment status is listed as ‘exception', then we recommend that you ask the receiver to contact UPS to help speed up customs clearance. You can obtain the telephone number directly from the bottom of this page.

Whether you're shipping to China, the USA, or any other country outside the EU, your shipment will have to travel through customs and may be subject to import duty or tax. ParcelHero will automatically provide the paperwork you require for customs clearance.
Many countries have import duty exemptions in place for low value items such as gifts or personal affects, however for any other types of goods it's likely your receiver will have to pay import duty and tax. Every country charges different levels of import tax depending on the types of products you're shipping, so we recommend you check with the local customs authority in the destination country if you need to know how much you're likely to be charged.
Once customs confirm the amount of charges to be applied, UPS will contact the recipient to take payment and arrange delivery.
UPS have strict size and weight restrictions and don't accept items over 70kg in weight, or 419cm in length and girth combined, so they are not a suitable option for very large and heavy parcels or freight shipments. They also apply a number of surcharges for large items. ParcelHero quotes include all applicable surcharges.
All ParcelHero prices include all applicable surcharges. DHL charges for remote area deliveries and also has a number of size and weight related surcharges so it's important that you provide accurate parcel dimensions and weight when requesting a quote.
