Courier services to the UK
Express delivery to the UK
No matter where you're shipping from, if it needs to get there fast, we can help. DHL Express International allows you to ship from almost anywhere in the world to any destination. Delivery times can be anywhere between 1-6 working days. When you get a quote with Parcel Monkey, look out for our discounted DHL services but also our own-brand Parcel Monkey international shipping services which are powered by branded couriers.
Economy delivery to the UK
All the delivery services you can book through Parcel Monkey are at a discounted rate, but if you're really on a budget, there are a few services you should look out for in your quote results:
- Tracked mail - If your shipment is not time-sensitive you can make big savings by booking one of our tracked mail services with EMS or TrakPak. These services have a longer delivery time and use the local postal system in the destination country to make the final delivery. You'll still get basic parcel tracking notifications.
- Parcel Monkey branded services - These services are operated by reputable world-renowned carriers such as FedEx and UPS, enabling you to book a premium delivery service at a fraction of the cost. The majority of our Parcel Monkey services are full tracked too!
- Drop off services - Generally, your quote results will show a variety of Pick Up and Drop Off services to choose from. Drop off services are cheaper and there are loads of local drop-off points to choose from so you can make an extra saving by simply dropping off your parcel while you're out.
Are your delivery services suitable for eBay and eCommerce?
Yes, they are! Our services are great for both eBay and general eCommerce shipping.
We offer a range of tracked express and economy shipping solutions which can be used to transport goods of all shapes and sizes. Just make sure you check out prohibited items list before you ship. This highlights items which are not suitable for transport through our courier partner networks.

Customs advice for shipping to the UK
When you ship to the UK it's likely you will need to complete a customs declaration form and your goods may incur UK import tax and customs duties.
Please note that the United Kingdom is no longer part of the European Union and from January 1st 2021, if you're shipping from a country within the EU you will need to provide a customs declaration when you send parcels to the UK. You will also need to provide a commodity code/HS code for each item being shipped. You can find commodity codes on the UK Government website
If you’ve never completed a customs declaration before, don’t worry, when you book a parcel delivery service with Parcel Monkey, this is all taken care of during the booking process. We’ll ask you the relevant questions and provide you with the completed customs document to print and attach to your package.
If you’re an EU business exporting to the UK, you will be expected to provide additional information, including your business EORI number. You can find more information on shipping to the UK here https://www.gov.uk/eubusiness
