They found a carrier for my oversized parcels that no one wanted to transport without it costing a fortune. Will use them again
It was very simple to take the parcel to my local shop. Also, as I was sending the parcel to New Zealand, it was very reassuring to have it checked in Haverhill and relabelled for the onward journey. I took the parcel to the local shop later on on Tuesday, and it was delivered to my daughter's house in the South of New Zealand on the Monday afternoon, which is the quickest I have ever sent a parcel. I will certainly use this service again. It was also the cheapest option.
Booking, collection and delivery all exemplary.
However, I was very suprised to see that you apply a surcharge to credit-card payments - this has been illegal since January this year!!!
But that doesn't detract from the fact that the actual operation was perfect.
Picked the parcel up at our home address and delivered to greece on the day it was expected
Parcel hero is the only service I have found that is reasonably priced and allows me to send non-perishable food to Australia. I sent a parcel recently and it got there in 5 days and tracked all the way. Their list of prohibited items is sensible and so most things can be sent. There are other parcel companies who offer a similar service but unfortunately their prohibited item list is as long as your arm so that isn't convenient.
I had a Birthday present to send to my daughter inthe French Alps, The Post office wanted £35+ to send a £75 present, and it would take 3-5 days. I brought it home and found you. If I had taken it myself, it would not have got there any quicker
Very fast and efficient. My friends got their camera back that they left when they visited in a couple of days. They were very happy.
I would definitely use your services again, as the collection and delivery happened at the time announced and my parcel was delivered in the best conditions. Absolutely worth the (small) price.
Excellent customer service after I made a mistake. Dropped off parcel locally at 1.00pm, it was delivered before 10am next day. Cheapest I could find and delivered by a premium (DHL) service..
I had my concerns having read other reviews but based on the price I booked with fingers crossed. I needed something transporting from a company to me, and as I wasn't the sender but the receiver, I was worried that something would not go to plan. I needn't have panicked. The package was collected on time and delivered to me the following day, with updates along the way, all as was quoted on the booking form. Couldn't have been happier!
Whether you are shipping golf clubs to Spain, water sports equipment to Thailand or a big bumper holiday suitcase, shipping baggage with ParcelHero can save you a surprising amount of money. For a standard weight bag, it is marginally cheaper to send by courier but if you have outsize or multiple baggage, the courier alternative can save hundreds of pounds.
Booking an international luggage delivery with ParcelHero is simple. Just enter a few details into our instant quote tool and pick the service that suits your budget and vacation timetable. If you are sending your luggage outside the European Union, for example to Florida, you will need customs documents. These are easily created as part of the booking process. If you are shipping personal effects no duties or tax will be applied to the luggage. Check our customs information page for more information.
Make sure that you are allowed to send everything your luggage contains, check ParcelHero's list of prohibited items before you book a delivery
Under the right circumstances, we will collect same day and can offer the following transit times to key destinations:
To package your luggage for delivery, simply place it in a box that is large enough to house it comfortably. If the contents of your suitcase are prone to damage, add packaging peanuts or newspaper to keep the suitcase from moving and to give it some buffering. Seal up the box using packaging tape and attach the shipping documents that we autofill and send you. We recommend using a document wallet to attach the documents to your parcel.
Unlike when your luggage disappears at baggage check-in, excess baggage sent by ParcelHero can be tracked from door to door so you know exactly where your shipment is at any point in its journey. Simply log-in to see if your luggage has arrived at your hotel or resort.
It is worth checking in advance of booking that your hotel or resort is capable of receiving delivery. And to let them know to expect a shipment in your name. Any established hotel will be happy to accommodate you regarding this, but if your luggage is travelling to a smaller guesthouse or a hired villa, make sure someone is available to receive the delivery.
