I've used Parcel Hero several times now, all very successful experiences, the most recent was a parcel sent to France. It was collected from a local shop on Monday morning and arrived there, signed for, the following day. Have also used Parcel Hero twice to Canada (be aware that your recipient will have to pay import duty on anything over £20.00 value, that caused a delay of a day due to my granddaughter not paying it immediately, but that wasn't Parcel Hero's fault)...and to Australia. All were cheaper and quicker than Royal Mail.
Easy to do. Good price. Delivered when said and email confirmation received. Would recommend. Thank you.
parcelhero was excellent the service and every thing went very well so thank you and merry chistmas to you all.
Unbelievable! Didn't believe it till I saw it,they said next day delivery to the US and it was.
A 4kg package delivered door to door from the UK to Australia in under a week, without damage, for £58, ticks all the boxes in my requirements for an international courier Especially since my usual courier (the one named after a Greek god) had given me an online quote. Then, when my client had paid this amount, they slapped on a £10 surcharge at the final checkout, thus forcing me to seek an alternative supplier ParcelHero's printed paperwork isn't as easy to comprehend as it could be, but the guy who collected (on time) took care of it all. Yes, I'd definitely use them again, and recommend them
I sent three parcels from Liverpool England one on Monday 14 March 2016 two Tuesday 15 March 2016. I was informed that I would receive them 21 & the 22 March 2016. to my surprise the parcel I was to receive 21 arrived Friday 18 March 2016. What excellent service. I am looking forward to receiving my next two parcels earlier then quoted.
Shipped a parcel from the UK to a friend in America via Fed Ex using Parcelhero. My package was picked up was around 3pm on Friday afternoon and delivered at 10am on Monday morning. Couldn't ask for more. Will continue to use this service :).
Very efficient and helpful service. Placed the order at 9-30am and the parcel was picked up just after 1pm the same day. Received an email a few days later to say the parcel had reached its destination on the 16th February. I contacted my friend who hadn't received the delivery. On further enquirers the parcel was located at the local post office, as it was closed over the weekend my friend was going to collect it yesterday, I haven't hear if this has happened as yet. Also my friend didn't receive an email to notify her it was due for delivery even though her email address was requested. iI do suppose what happens once the parcel reaches its country of destination it is out of parcel heroes hands.
Better for the late Christmas parcel than Y***l which would have been after New year. Excellent service with mainstream carriers. collection and Delivery staff were most helpful.
I am very pleased with the service that parcel hero give. Parcels picked up on day specified and delivered the following day. Have used this company in the past to send parcels to USA and they were delivered within 48hrs...
Although Russia prohibits shipments between individuals, ParcelHero provides the premier experience to ensure that your business shipment is in the best possible hands. Whether you’re shipping from France to Moscow or Norway to Petersburg, you can be sure that you’ve got nothing to worry about. And thanks to our door-to-door shipping, you can even keep an eye on your package every step of the way.
Speedy delivery to destinations throughout Russia
Collections throughout Russia for parcel delivery to the UK
And because of Russia’s restrictions about shipping destinations, customs are very particular about what they allow into the country. Each package will have to clear customs, but commercial shipments do have a low value exemption from duties and fees. That means that parcels that are worth less than €200 will not have to pay customs duties and fees when clearing customs.
You can find out more about the duties and taxes you may have to pay by visiting the Russian customs website.
ParcelHero makes it simple to ship to Russia, but that doesn’t mean you can send anything you like. Apart from some extra rules about shipping watches with certain carriers like UPS, the regulations for what you are allowed to bring into the country are mostly similar to the list of goods that ParcelHero cannot ship. You can see those goods in ParcelHero’s list of prohibited and restricted items for more information.
When you’re building a business or shipping to a Russian company, you’ll likely want to be shipping large goods or pallets. ParcelHero makes that simple and affordable by working with leading large and heavy couriers. Just enter you package details – we’ll do the heavy lifting.
Not only can you send documents to Russia, it is simple to clear customs and do so quickly thanks to ParcelHero. We can have your documents in Russia as quickly as possible, and at the cheapest prices around.
You can ship food with ParcelHero, as long as it is store bought and in its original packaging. No one wants to open a box of rotting food, so you’re not allowed to send anything considered perishable – that is, with a best before date within six months of shipping. Nothing homemade is allowed, so you’ll have to leave the family recipe pierogi behind.
Because you are only allowed to ship to business addresses in Russia, it should be no surprise that you may want to be doing business in the country. As the ninth largest economy in the world, it’s a tempting destination, and recent improvements have lifted it to among the 100 easiest countries to do business in according to the World Bank.
Trade between the UK and Russia is growing year on year, and was worth well over £7billion in 2013. In fact, Russia is the UK’s largest export partner outside of the USA, China and the EU. Some of the most common UK exports to Russia include:
Don’t panic if your goods aren’t on that list; as one of the UK’s biggest trading partners, there’s plenty of room for your own style. If you’re not sure, you can work with ParcelHero’s government trading partner Exporting is Great, who have put together a tool that helps you find the best opportunities for doing business in Russia. And if you need some more information on exporting to Russia, you can have a look at the government’s Russian export guide.
Russia is an enormously large country, so it’s vital that you get your shipping address absolutely right. To ensure delivery of your parcel, you should make sure to include:
When you’re filling the street name and house number, it’s best to use the Russian abbreviations. Those are ‘ul.’ for street name and ‘d.’ for house. Postcodes in Russia are six digits, with the first three digits referring to the region that the destination is in. Some large cities have a main central post office, which is assigned the postcode for the district. In the largest cities, some streets have multiple postcodes, which are then assigned by house number.
Though ParcelHero’s partner carriers have the most extensive coverage possible, even they don’t deliver every day. Like anyone else, we need a break sometimes, so we don’t deliver on weekends or public holidays. Be sure to plan around the upcoming holidays below:
