Sending a parcel in the UK is easy with ParcelHero®. Just get a courier quote and select from our wide range of UK courier prices. We have a service to suit every budget, from urgent pre 9am timed delivery, to our standard next day delivery options.
We offer same day UK collection at no extra cost, with online booking up to 3pm for most UK postcodes and up to 4pm for our London courier service. Whilst we can't offer a guaranteed or specific collection time, we do offer collection after a nominated time. For example, you can request a collection after 3pm (all collections are done before 7pm).
UK Parcel Deliveries are made on working weekdays between 9am and 7pm. We also offer Timed AM and Saturday Delivery upgrades nationally for most UK postcodes.
We include three free delivery attempts for the majority of our UK delivery services. For some UK parcels under 20kg we make a single attempt. If our UK courier is unable to deliver the package, your goods will be taken to a local UPS Access Point for convenient collection. The UPS Access Point is usually a nearby local retailer, offering pick-up outside normal office hours.

We provide a signed for delivery service for most of our UK parcel deliveries.
However, if the driver is unable to deliver your parcel then they may deliver it
to a safe location such as a neighbouring property. If you absolutely require
a signed-for delivery at the specific delivery address, please contact our
customer care team.
ParcelHero® also offers UK courier delivery to remote and offshore locations. For remote locations, UK Parcel Tracking information can sometimes take a bit longer to update and delivery can take a little longer to get there. The transit time we display for our UK parcel prices includes any additional remote area transit times.

Because we use only the best UK parcel couriers, we're able to provide state-of-the-art real time UK parcel tracking. From the moment your package is collected, you can track its location and progress throughout its journey. Once your package is delivered you can view the signature online. We also send a complimentary email to confirm final delivery. If there are any delays with your shipment, your tracking information will tell you what type of delay your shipment has encountered and whether anything is required from you to get it moving again.
ParcelHero® also emails you and your recipient to notify of any delays and what is being done to resolve it. If you are a ParcelHero® member you can track all your deliveries directly from your online dashboard. You don't even need your tracking number.

ParcelHero® can send any heavy UK parcels via our specialist Large and Heavy services, and we also offer UK pallet delivery. We can handle large and heavy items up to 1000kg. For items weighing more than 50kg each, we require 24 hours advanced booking and you will need to provide lifting assistance to the driver.
Shipments over 70kg and very large items, such as white goods or furniture, must be palletised prior to collection. Courier networks are not suitable for transporting large and heavy items that are not on a pallet, as there is a greater risk of damage. Please get in touch with our customer care team if you need help or advice sending a large or heavy item.
If you need to send a parcel in the UK, please ensure you have packed your items well. When you use a UK courier service your shipment
will be handled multiple times, be loaded on and off vehicles and may have other packages placed on top of it. They can
also be subject to vibration or impact when being transported. It's therefore really important that your
packaging is sufficient and strong enough to protect your items.
Always make sure you use a strong box that doesn't have any creases, dents or holes. The more a box is used, the weaker it becomes so
choosing a good strong box is really important. If in doubt, use a new one. It's equally important that the items inside are
sufficiently cushioned so please ensure you fill the box with internal packaging materials so the items inside
cannot move around during transport. Last but not least, always ensure you use good, strong packaging tape and apply the
tape to the box in both directions. The more tape the better.
Use a strong box that's capable of
supporting the weight of your items.
We recommend using a double lined box
for any items over 10 kg in weight.
1. Make sure your box is strong enough and doesn't have any creases or dents. If your goods weigh more than 10 kg,
or are fragile, we recommend using a double lined box.
2. Make sure you wrap each item individually, and fill the box with internal packaging materials such as packaging chips
so the items inside cannot slide or move around in transit.
3. Apply strong packaging tape three times around the box in both directions, and cover any seams or joins. Make sure
your label is securely attached to the box and the barcodes are not covered by tape.
