Prompt delivery. Extremely happy with the service. Will recommend to others and use the service again.
Excellent service. The communication and tracking of the item was very good. the price surprised me. Well done.
Well priced, although not the cheapest (approx £20) and package which only contained documents delivered on time (4 days later) in Greater Noida, india from London. I dropped it a DPD newsagent at approx 11.30 Monday on a 4 day delivery, and it was hand delivered on Friday. According to the tracking it wasnt picked up from the newsagent for 24 hours though. It actually went internationally through DHL, although this was not apparent from the booking.
yes its really fast and good service compared to post office..... with a same price. I will definitely choose the parcel hero for my next parcel
Collected on time and delivery promptly. Above all keep informed by e-mail the status of the order.
