“No tracking and delivery way longer than service paid for”

Written on: 25/07/2015 by EduardoMedina69 (1 review written)

I had some urgent documents to send to my teenage son in Costa Rica. DHL and Fedex offered a similar service for a similar price but I chose parcel monkey because they offer tracking and a 3 -4 day express service. What a mistake.They did not provide any tracking and after 2 days i found out that the parcel had gone less than 60 miles. It took all morning to get them to confirm they could not deliver it within 6 days and at this point they have not confirmed that the documents will be returned… Read Full Review

“Personal effects to New Zealand”

Written on: 21/06/2015

Wanted to send daughter's ski stuff 2 New Zealand and Parcel Monkey was cheapest option. Few queries were answered efficiently by webchat. Arranged collection which was as promised. Box arrived ten days later in NZ. Took longer than expected but 5 of those days were NZ customs inspection. Delighted. Slightly concerned as updates seemed vague but contacted PM who gave me DHL ref and updated regularly. So one happy bunny! Thank you PM .. … Read Full Review

“Absolutely horrendous don't bother - go straight to...”

Written on: 03/06/2015 by Atkinson386 (1 review written)

After posting a parcel, clearly described and marked as fragile glass I received pictures of clearly mangled box - parcel monkey took absolutely no ownership of this - even yodel said they would investigate should the third party - parcel monkey - raise concern, parcel monkey have responded advising they won't take it any further - £140 out of pocket... Absolutely appalled, insurance evidently means nothing as the only option was £20 for glass items!… Read Full Review

“Useless! Can't book a parcel for collection!”

Written on: 30/05/2015 by 292Hay (1 review written)

Twice I have tried to book a parcel for collection and twice there have been problems with the website and I haven't been able to book them. The staff on the help chat are at best useless, on this latest occasion I have explained now three times to three different staff members the issues I have been having and each time they suggest a solution (which doesn't work) I get cut off and then have to explain the problem all over again to the next member of staff. The first time the price increased… Read Full Review

“Avoid at all cost”

Written on: 25/05/2015 by evilhomer79 (1 review written)

On 14th of May I booked a collection of a small parcel to go to Romania on Parcel Monkey's Air Express service (2-3 working days with online tracking). I would normally have used someone like Parcel Force, but the price I was quoted was too high on this occasion. I shopped around and found Parcel Monkey who would still use Parcel Force but for a fraction of the price. It seemed a logical choice so I booked and paid for next day collection. True to form, the parcel was collected the following… Read Full Review

“AVOID AT ANY COST... wish I'd read these reviews first!”

Written on: 15/05/2015

Ordered collection last Wednesday for a Thursday pickup. The courier (Yodel) never turned up. Tried contacting Parcel Monkey Thurs at 17:15 but got an automated reply that customer services was closed from 18:00! Contacted Yodel for a re-collection but they said I have to go through Parcel monkey. Finally got a reply from the Monkey afternoon next day (Friday) with an apology but no new collection date. I replied that I needed collection asap. They replied on Monday and said that collection… Read Full Review

“You pay peanuts you get monkeys”

Written on: 07/05/2015 by ArnoldLayne (1 review written)

Parcel monkey were the cheapest quote I got.  I paid for next day delivery yet 3 days later the parcel was still in my house waiting to be collect. I called the courier directly each day and they gave me the reason why it hadn't been collected although dissapointing their excuses were acceptable, however, When I finally managed to communicate with someone from parcel monkey why this had been so, (after creating support tickets which were closed with no response from them) they were very… Read Full Review

“Avoid”

Written on: 05/05/2015 by ruDodd385 (1 review written)

Parcelmonkey might be the cheapest but you get what you pay for. Terrible service. I had originally booked for a collection on a thursday and by the following tuesday I still had the package. The customer service is abysmal. You can't speak to anybody only do an online chat and you would get more sense out of a chimp. You only ever get basic information and nothing is ever guaranteed. I don't think the customer service team really care about their customers as there is no follow up done to make… Read Full Review

“Parcel Monkey - Peanuts for Service”

Written on: 05/05/2015 by KeelyRitchie (1 review written)

Booked and paid for courier service to US, with a 3-5 day delivery. It has now been 16 days - and the parcel has still to be delivered. And not by courier (what I paid for) but through USPS. Contacted them 3 times - each time get the run around that its customs in the US but tracking shows item went through customs in 2 days. Monkey business… Read Full Review

“Horrendous service”

Written on: 28/04/2015 by lhHogan298 (1 review written)

I took a day off work and waited for the collection ehich was between 8-6. No-one arrived and so I attempted to contact parc monkey but they do not have a phone number. 6 emails later and no reply. I contacted dx freight who advised it was a different driver so they couldnt tell me why he did not attend. They then arranged to attend after 4 the next day but attended at 3:30. Awful customer service. I would never recommend or use again. STAY AWAY… Read Full Review

“totally unreliable. They don't pay out even on...”

Written on: 15/04/2015 by France2008 (1 review written)

I booked this company to deliver a drawer unit. On their website I clearly stated it was a drawer unit and it asked if I wanted to insure it, I did and paid accordingly. The item was delivered damaged, I reported it to PM and requested they collect it and deliver a replacement. They told me I'd have to pay again to deliver the new and collect the damaged AND that drawer units were on the Prohibited List, since when has small furniture been on a prohibited list? And if that was the case, why… Read Full Review

“DO NOT USE”

Written on: 25/03/2015 by GenesisLyons70 (1 review written)

Purchased a tent from EBay and decided to use these idiots to collect and deliver due to their price. I should have known better... The tent POLES appeared within 48 hours. The tent rocked up 33 DAYS LATER... 33 DAYS!! Not only this. The tent is a large 6 man, and has to be moved on wheels built into the base of the bag. The wheels were COMPLETELY SHEARED OFF!! Both myself and the seller are currently persuing a small claim through the courts, as Parcel Monkey tried to put the blame on the… Read Full Review

“Delivered to unoccupied house house and defrauded”

Written on: 19/03/2015 by MarkOak (1 review written)

As it says they delivered to somebody at an empty house. Empty being no residents no occupants and not a sole there. A forged signature was used not a legal signature of the recipient. Stay aware they will try all sorts and try and place obstacles in the claim process. They employ monkeys on a message board who do not know anything about the company and the law. DO not fall into any traps,claim in writing and do it all in writing then through the small claims court yourself… Read Full Review

“I gave Parcel Monkey 1 * because they collected my...”

Written on: 17/03/2015 by PaulCWest (1 review written)

I gave Parcel Monkey 1 * because they collected my parcel on time, other than that they are useless and blatantly lied to me. My parcel was going to my grandson in New Zealand as part of his Xmas gifts. It was collected on 25/11/2014 and eventually was received by him at the end of January 2015. I initially had my parcel weighed by The Post Office but thought fee's expensive. Parcel Monkey were a lot cheaper on paper and the reviews I read at that time were good. Within days of the collection I… Read Full Review
