Good communication. Very easy with all customs paperwork online. Service was provided as stated. Top marks to Fed Ex as parcel arrived 2 days early
Very straight forward easy to use, good prices and able to track parcel on its journey. Very good communication, and pricing Highly recommended
Easy to do on line. Lot of information to help you. Picked up and delivered on time
They were very professional from the start. The courier picked up the parcel on the day designated and advised that it would be on the plane that evening. It was easy to track the parcel and it arrived on time on the day given. The website is user friendly and would definitely recommend and use again
Great service tracked all the way from the UK to Abu Dhabi even arrived a bit earlier than expected will definitely use again.
Was a bit concerned after parcel was collected to receive an email stating "collection failed" but after contacting customer services it was discovered TNT driver hadn't scanned parcel. Brilliant communication to address my concerns. Using this website you do get better prices than the individual couriers own websites
Letter arrived in the UAE within 1 business day. Delivered the letter on a Friday to my local convenience store. Letter was received in the UAE on the Monday.
Collected in UK Tuesday and delivered in Dubai Thursday as promised!
Easy booking and labels emailed immediately, great service.
Very good service. Pick-up and drop-off was as scheduled. No delays anywhere - fast service from US to UAE.
Parcelhero collected my item from Swindon on the Friday and delivered it to Dubai on the Monday. Couldn't be happier with the service received. I will definitely be using again.

Collections from the United Arab Emirates for parcel delivery to the UK
Whatever the contents of your shipment to the UAE, it will have to pass through customs. That doesn’t necessarily mean that it will have duties and customs fees applied however; parcels worth less than 1,000 dirham will clear customs without extra fees. Gifts worth more than this will be taxed at 5%, and other packages above this threshold will be taxed as normal in the destination Emirate.
Knowing what you can and can’t send to the United Arab Emirates can be tricky, as many of the individual emirates have their own rules. For the most part, the rules are similar to ParcelHero’s own rules about Prohibited and Restricted items. For more specific rules, likes Dubai’s rules banning all goods from Israel, you should visit the website of your parcel's destination emirate.
As long as it doesn't breach the emirate's specific import rules you can ship certain foods to the UAE with ParcelHero. Food shipped internationally has to be in its original packaging, and bought from a store. Nothing perishable or homemade is allowed to be sent, and won’t be delivered.

As the UK’s largest middle eastern trading partner, the UAE is an appealing destination for companies of all shapes and sizes. There are unique difficulties to face, but doing so can be lucrative – as the 5,000 UK companies who have established themselves in the UAE can attest. There’s over £12 billion of trade between the UK and the UAE, so there is plenty of space for more.

Depending where you are shipping your parcel within the United Arab Emirates, addressing your package may be difficult. In Dubai, for example, there are no street addresses. Normal mail is delivered to a PO Box, but most courier services don’t deliver to these boxes. Instead you will need to describe your delivery destination so that your courier can find it.
When you are sending a parcel, your address should include:
This helps the courier that you are shipping your parcel with find the right building, which can be difficult when there is so much building and transformation.
Like everyone else, the people who deliver your packages and gifts need a holiday ever once in a while too. That’s why we don’t deliver on weekends or public holidays. If you need a shipment to arrive for a specific occasion, be sure to keep the dates below in mind when making your booking.
