Mail on Sunday report finds parcel brokers ParcelHero up to 86% cheaper than the Post Office this Christmas.

National newspaper reports significant savings using ParcelHero over Royal Mail/ParcelForce

A report into Christmas parcel pricing costs in this Sunday’s issue of the Mail on Sunday national newspaper found the international courier price comparison site ParcelHero up to 86% cheaper than equivalent Royal Mail/ParcelForce services.

The report found ParcelHero’s Express service was 86% cheaper than ParcelForce shipping a 5kg parcel to Italy. Express parcels to other European destinations were shown to be over 50% cheaper than ParcelForce equivalents; 62% cheaper to the USA, and 58% less to Australia.

ParcelHero’s Head of Public Relations David Jinks MILT says: ‘As the revealing article showed, on shipments of over 2kg, ParcelHero offer rates between 60 and 70 per cent cheaper than you would get direct from most courier companies or Royal Mail for both UK and worldwide delivery.’

‘People sending gifts should think beyond the traditional trip to the Post Office. As well as our price advantage, ParcelHero’s quality courier partners will come and collect your parcel from your home or office.'

Adds David: ‘In addition ParcelHero’s courier price comparison page enables people to choose from a range of quality carriers such as UPS, DHL and DPD. Comparing the prices and services of different couriers can be a difficult business, especially if the sender doesn’t know much about using a courier. Many people will only use such a service at Christmas. At ParcelHero we make the choices as simple as possible. We only partner with the best courier companies and our price comparison website enables senders to obtain the cheapest prices.’
