Don't get caught fighting other parents In Toys R Us for the last 'must have' presents for the kids. Get ahead and save yourself at least one seasonal stress!
Everyone has seen them, frantic parents on Christmas Eve with desperate faces. They have left it too late to get this year's 'must-have' gifts for kids. We all remember Christmases past… Cabbage Patch Dolls, Rubik's Cubes and Furbys. And Mums and Dads practically coming to blows over the last ...

Did you know that Tetris was supposed to be released on the Sega Megadrive? If you can track down one of the ten unlicensed copies in existence, it's worth up to £10,500! Check out our top nine gaming collectables!
Gaming collectibles has always been a competitive, and profitable world, but it’s seriously taken off in the last few years. If you were a child of the 1990s, you’ll get all misty eyed for Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country and Mortal Kombat. It may be hard to believe, but these titles are now collectibles with super-rare games selling for very serious prices. If you happen to have a collection gathering dust in your old room, you could be in...

It's not easy packing a bike up properly to send. Its definitely easier with our handy ParcelHero guide #parcelhero  
Your bike may be a smooth ride but that doesn't make it the easiest thing to package up and send. With the fetish for new bikes, more and more are being sold on eBay, online yard sale sites and apps such as Schpock. You may not be selling your bike, you could be moving house or going on holiday.

Poor old Santa - sitting there on his summer hols and Selfridge's kick-starts Christmas. #christmas #xmas http://ow.ly/zYkDF
It may be balmy outside, and many of you may think its barmy to be planning Christmas in sweltering summer heat but retailers are already getting into the Christmas spirit. And Santa, in full festive regalia has been spotted in Oxford Street. 141 days before the big day, shouldn't he be on the ...

First time I have used Parcelhero to receive a box of goodies from the UK to Australia where I am now living! Parcelhero were much cheaper than other services I priced and the parcel was here within 4/5 days. Good comms for collection from my sender and for me with the delivery window to my home in Oz. I will definitely be using the service again and have also recommended to friends. Thanks Parcelhero for making such a service more affordable!

Used ParcelHero several times for international postage. Timely delivery, great customer service. They need to improve their website as some features do not work properly, simplify the experience when booking delivery of several parcels, and also when the information on the invoice differs from the contact information of the sender. Otherwise great, would use again, thanks.

This was an excellent service. My only feedback was that I didn't become aware that the package had to be boxed until after I had paid. As it was, we had a box and were able to pack our parcel into it but we had intended on sending the material in a soft package. I think boxes are better - just a bit more notice about the requirement for one earlier on the site. Thank you for a reliable, convenient and value-for-money service. David

I found the website very user friendly and easy to use, providing me with various options at very reasonable prices. It was easy to arrange, they picked up my parcel on time, provided me with full tracking throughout and delivered my parcel to Australia in the same condition it left in and even arrived a day early. I would highly recommend Parcelhero and I will be using them again for both domestic and international packages.

I only had the best experience even when it was the worst! This was my second time using them and the collection had a time frame and we knew when it will come and the parcel arrived earlier than expected. I love that I didn't had to stay at home all day waiting for the delivery guy to come. Even when I had questions they answered and always stayed in touch with me. Recommend it with all my heart!

Very reasonable rates and excellent service, next day delivery with no problems. The one thing that could be improved would be a text message to the recipient saying when their item is ready to collect. 5 star, will use again!

Unacceptable - Had insurance yet refused to pay for loss parcel Parcel Hero are a sham, they collected a parcel in Spain, but then lost it, took months to own it, said to claim, filled out a claim and then chucked out out claiming no original receipt! Who has receipts a year on, I asked for help they said pass 7 days on the claim.. JOKE.. DO NOT USE THE PEOPLE Loss of £800 upwards of goods I will be seeing you in court

After being totally let down by another parcel company, dealing with Parcel Hero went like clockwork. The parcel was collected within 2 hours of being booked, and arrived at its destination in Canada 2 days later, and before Christmas. Slightly more expensive than other companies but the lack of hassle made up for that twice over. Will definitely use them again.
