Mohammed Jhali
Its third time what I sent a parcel over Parcelpal and very satisfied! I can always see where is my parcel. Delivery always in time or even earlier! Great price. Very professional. No more what to say just Thank you Parcelpal
Jacob Winder
Usually the cheapest parcel broker but service is consistently excellent. Easy to use site - their restrictions and prohibitions are not so onerous as others either! I’ve used them many times for ParcelForce as a rule and their service in the process has been superb and MUCH CHEAPER! Premium service at economy price!
Claire Bull
posted Tuesday in UK, delivered Friday in Canada. Excellent
Paul Holmes
Great service. My parcel got to the destination on time. It contained my wedding dress so I opted for insurance up to the value of the dress and this service offered the best price for the insurance cost. Would recommend and use again!

I used ParcelPal for the first time recently. I had a parcel to go to Italy and got quite a shock with the cost through Royal Mail (Parcel Force). So I Googled ParcelPal found it be nearly half the price. I then filled in the initial registration which was quite painless. Then I registered the parcel and paid through my credit card. I printed our the barcoded label, stuck it on and then, you guessed it, I took it to the Post Office. What a great service. I used it again for the same customer a week later and two clicks it picked up all the details. RECOMMENDED.

Booked for pickup late evening and to my surprise the parcel was picked up early next day. The gentleman that picked up the parcel also supplied the address label. I had notification that the parcel was delivered the following day and I just want to say that I received excellent customer service at a very reasonable price. Good on you Parcelpal
