What is Colissimo Expert?
Colissimo Expert is the courier service of choice for many individuals and small businesses in France. Larger companies also use this excellent courier service as when the courier delivers the item, the recipient signs for the parcel. In the world of eCommerce this is very important as it acts as proof of delivery, so eBay and marketplace sellers opt to book this when they compare couriers with Parcel Monkey.
How much does it cost to send a parcel with the Colissimo Expert service?
When you book a courier online with Parcel Monkey, it means the postage is prepaid, so you simply just have to print off the shipping label, attach it to the box and drop it off. This then saves money on the cost of shipping your package, so much so that you can send a parcel anywhere in France from as little as €8.86. You can send bigger parcels as well, we can book in items that weigh up to 29kg and that sort of box would cost you about €32.
Where do I have to drop my package off and can I view the Colissimo tracking?
Colissimo Expert comes with full tracking to delivery, and this is passed to our customers through the order number we provide at the time of booking. If you book any Colissimo service then you drop the parcel off at your local La Poste location, and you will be provided with a receipt to say the box has been dropped off.
Colissimo Expert will ensure a signature is taken upon delivery, for a small additional cost compared to the Access service. Customers use this service for more important shipments and it is ideal for eBay sellers so they have a proof of delivery. If nobody is home for delivery then the parcel can be collected from a local La Poste location, and the courier will leave a note for the recipient to find out where their item is.
What can I send with Colissimo?
As the service is delivered in just 48 hours nationally and comes with a signature, customers use this service for more valuable goods like clothing, eBay items, toys and more. Businesses also make use of our low cost prices to save money on the cost of shipping orders.
As this is a drop off service make sure when you book it that you declare the dimensions and weight correctly, as there is not always lots of room in the La Poste locations. Dimensional weight is worked out by our clever shipping calculator so if you provide accurate details at the time of booking there should be no problem using the Colissimo Expert network.
