For domestic shipping (within the US), you can book one of our popular Parcel Monkey Ground services, provided by FedEx. This is more cost-effective than booking an expedited service to courier your items to another state.
You can book a FedEx courier to come and pick up your package or you can drop off at any FedEx store if it’s no heavier than 70 lbs.
We have a specialist FedEx heavy courier service designed for those really large or heavy packages that weigh more than 70 lbs or have large dimensions.
Ground services are the most cost-effective way of shipping heavy items and a good alternative if your large item isn't suitable to fly.
The Parcel Monkey shipping calculator is very simple to use and will help you find the cheapest way to ship heavy items. Enter your package dimensions, weight and the destination you want to ship to and we will provide a list of heavy item couriers and rates for you to choose from. If you have a heavy package, we will only show you suitable ground services for heavy items.
Once you have chosen a courier service, such as Parcel Monkey Ground Pick-Up (Heavy), which is ideal for large or oversized items, simply print the shipping labels from your Parcel Monkey account and attach them securely to the box.
A FedEx courier will arrive at your address on a date that you choose and will pick up your package. This shipping process could not be easier and you don’t even have to leave your home!
As the Parcel Monkey Ground services are provided by FedEx, you can track your package through the delivery network using your Parcel Monkey shipment number (beginning with PMS) and our tracking tool. This reflects FedEx tracking.
Share the tracking number with the recipient too, so they can also see when their package will arrive. After all, if you are paying for a great fully tracked service, you may as well keep them up to date as well.
Auto parts are also a popular item shipped using our large item shipping services, as auto spares are easily sent using a ground service. They can be expensive to send normally, but our discounted large item delivery rates will save you money.
