Not a single problem. Delivered faster than expected, and I could follow the status online any time. Very good experience.
Really easy to find, select and order the best options. Reasonable cost and simple process, completely painless.
They guy who collected my parcel from me was very polite, friendly and helpful. The whole process was tracked really well and the parcel was delivered on the day expected and as requested at the other end. The whole process was very smooth. Perfect service !!
Great price, easy to use, easy to print documents, useful updates on status of parcel, worth the effort to take parcel to a central pick up point, will use again.
I got REALLY cheapest quote - checked few websites. Early collection, also driver called me to inform about collection time. Delivery also on promised date. Thank you!
I searched online for quotes to have a piece of furniture collected by courier from South Wales and to have it delivered to South West Scotland. The cheapest I could get was £140 which ontop of the price of the item was a lot of money - I came across parcelhero.com and couldn't believe their quote was £100 less!!! Fantastic service, fantastic price, item collected when I was told it would be and was delivered the following day as advised. I will definitely use this company again and will recommend it to friends/family etc without hesitation.
Superb service, parcel was collected as promised, tracking was simple and effective and delivery was made exactly as scheduled. The website was also very straightforward so booking and payment was easy.
Parcel was collected quickly, my query about labels was answered promptly, delivered very quickly and safely. Can't fault the service.
First time using ParcelHero though I send parcels within UK and internationally every week. I must say I'm very impressed with their prices and the service they provide.
Easy to use website, friendly and speedy collection and delivery. Will definitely use ParcelHero again. Thank you.
ParcelHero does more than help you save on shipping to Sri Lanka; we offer a wide variety of shipping options too. Whether you need your parcel there as soon as possible, or if you just want the best price for your shipment to Sri Lanka, you need look no further than ParcelHero.
Enter your parcel details in the form on this page and we'll show you a variety of services and quotes for you to pick from.
Every package that enters Sri Lanka passes through customs, so remember to give us enough details so that we can supply you with the correct paperwork. The only exemption is paperwork, so all other parcels will have duties and customs fees applied during the clearance process. Value Added Tax in Sri Lanka is 15%, so you can expect at least that portion of the value of your goods to be applied to your package during clearance. For more information, pay a visit to the Sri Lankan customs page.
Like any other international destination, there are rules about what you can import. Apart from a ban on any materials ridiculing religious belief, however, Sri Lankan import rules predominantly fall into line with ParcelHero’s own list of goods that are not carried by our partner couriers. Visit ParcelHero’s Prohibited Items list to find out more.
Even the hardest working couriers need some time to take a breather, which is why we don’t deliver on weekends or public holidays. Don’t be taken by surprise when you’re shipping near Sri Lankan days off, and be sure to leave plenty of time to make sure that your delivery isn’t delayed.
Though it is on the other side of the world, ParcelHero makes sending a parcel to Sri Lanka simple - no matter the size. We work with leading oversized package carriers like TNT to help you get a great price for even the largest and heaviest goods.
There are plenty of reasons to send gifts to Sri Lanka, but remember that there are no gift exemptions to duties and taxes when your gift reaches Sri Lankan customs. As such, your receiver will be billed for these charges and you may want to consider arranging to have these paid ahead of time.
As one of the most famous producers of tea in the world, getting tea from Sri Lanka is a special treat. As long as your shipment is in original packaging and isn’t perishable, there shouldn’t be any issues in shipping it.
When shipping to Sri Lanka, properly addressing your parcel can be the difference between prompt delivery and a long delay. You need to include:
Postcodes in Sri Lanka are five-digit numbers, each of which is assigned to a specific postal town. When you put together all the elements of a Sri Lankan address, it should look like the below:
Mr. John Smith,
10, Dharmapala Mawatha,
Thanks in part to Britain’s love of tea, the UK and Sri Lanka have a long-standing business relationship. The UK is one of the top investors in Sri Lanka, and though exports to Sri Lanka have dropped slightly in recent years, they were still worth over £165 million in 2014. As one of the strongest growing economies in the region, Sri Lanka is a tempting destination for a growing company. Top exports from the UK to Sri Lanka included:
This is not an exclusive list however, and businesses that fall outside of these niches should not be discouraged from sending goods to Sri Lanka. They should keep in mind the extra costs in shipping to a destination outside the European Union, as all shipments to Sri Lanka will have extra fees applied when clearing customs. This could make exporting to Sri Lanka prohibitively expensive for smaller businesses, but may be worth the risk for others.
The Sri Lankan government does encourage international businesses to consider the country, so if you’d like more information about exporting to Sri Lanka, you can visit the UK government’s guide to Exporting to Sri Lanka, or our government partner Exporting is Great, who have a tool that suggests opportunities in Export destinations around the world.
