Domestic shipping is the process of shipping a package within the US from one state to another. There are a number of domestic shipping companies to choose from such as FedEx, UPS and of course the USPS. If you are worried about what courier to book, our shipping calculator will help you figure out which is best based on cost and speed of delivery.
All of them offer different types of domestic courier services so depending on how quickly you want your package to arrive, or if you need an economy shipping option, Parcel Monkey can help you find a delivery company who gives you the best value for money.
If you haven't shipped a package before and want to know more about how to do it we can help with that too.

The three well known US shipping companies all offer economy and ground shipping services, including FedEx, the USPS, and UPS. Ground shipping is popular as if you need to keep the costs down or if the package you are shipping is not urgent. Likewise, if you are sending something heavy such as auto parts a domestic ground shipping service is the best value for money.
Our low-cost overnight shipping might still be too costly for people looking for the cheapest domestic services so we have a range of US shipping services that allow you to ship a package to any of the 50 states for a great price.

Ground shipping services are very popular with those who are looking for cost-effective delivery. Many eBay sellers use this type of service to keep shipping costs down.
These services generally take longer to be delivered but they allow to pay a lot less than an express courier service. However, they are still fully tracked to delivery and you can also add protection cover to the booking too.
Transit times for Ground Shipping will vary depending on which level of service you choose and how far the package needs to go. If you are shipping from neighbouring states you can expect a quicker transit time compared to shipping from one side of the US the other. This is why the shipping times we display vary from 1-5 working days.

Our own Ground Shipping services are handled by FedEx within the USA. We aim to provide a service to suit all of our customers so this is why we provide both pick-up and drop off options. We also have different suppliers selling the same services, at differing rates so you can book a courier at a price that suits you.
Large and heavy packages are best sent via economy shipping services like Ground as you will have to pay a lot less to have your item shipped. Some packages are long rather than heavy too, such as fishing rods and they can be handled by our couriers too.
For heavy packages, opt for our Parcel Monkey Ground Pick Up (Heavy) service. The shipment will be picked up from your home or work address by FedEx and you can send goods that weigh up to 150lbs. Please note only one driver will come to collect the item so you may need to assist them with loading the item into the FedEx truck.
We also offer some FedEx Freight services too;
FedEx Priority Freight 1-3 days
FedEx First Freight 1-2 days
We can save you money on shipping boxes to almost any state. Our services are often cheaper than shipping a package at the Post Office. You can get a box picked up from your home or you can drop off at a local store location depending on which service suits you best.
Parcel Monkey will give you the shipping label so all you have to do is print it off, attach it to the box and hand the shipment over to the driver or over the counter at a local drop off store or Post Office.
Standard domestic shipping can vary in transit time, you can compare these when you get a price from our shipping calculator. We have everything from Next Day to economic ground shipping that still only takes around 5 working days to most locations.

We offer protection cover on our services so if you need to send something across the USA that is more valuable, add this to your order when you place the booking. You can also track your package whilst it is moving to another state and see when it has arrived simply by using your PMS order number. Why not share this with the recipient so they too can monitor the progress of your item.
Be sure to attach the shipping labels securely to any box you send and package your shipment correctly when you send it.
