How is the EMS service so affordable?
Parcel Monkey allow customers to access huge savings as we simply resell international courier rates, but as we send packages in great volume, we can pass on those savings to our customer base, whilst still offering the high standard of delivery you would expect booking direct with a courier service. Low cost postal rates partnered, with the reliability of EMS services means you can enjoy the same experience of having your parcels booked directly witth a courier, but you can enjoy saving on overseas shipping services.
Rather than you as an individual customer trying to keep costs low, we give EMS thousands of parcels, so in return they give us fantastic value services, so we can pass this on to you when you book via our quote engine.
When it comes to Customs Duty, all parcels are sent with duties unpaid so please ensure your recipient is aware there could be taxes and duties owed and they will need them to have all documents ready for the package to be imported. We advise to check before you send with customs in the destination you are shipping to, to make sure there is no hefty bill to pay for shipping your item.
