Sending things home back to Africa can sometimes be time-consuming and expensive. Fortunately, we’ve come up with a list of some of the best delivery companies to use when sending things to and from Africa and the EU/UK.
Here are the 3 best parcel delivery comparison websites to use when sending things to and from Africa and the EU/UK…
Parcel Monkey is more of a courier comparison tool rather than a courier service. It allows you to compare quotes for cheap courier services for deliveries within the UK, European and worldwide destinations. This includes African countries like South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria and Zimbabwe.
How long it will take for your parcel to reach Africa depends on which country you’re sending it to. It also depends on how big the parcel is and which service you choose to use. For example, Parcelforce Priority International can deliver your parcel to South Africa in 3-7 working days, while DHL Express takes just 2-3 working days. If you’re sending a parcel to a remote location, bear in mind that deliveries can take a little longer.
Transglobal Express also allows you to compare and choose from the world’s leading international couriers including those that operate to and from Africa. Its slogan is ‘delivering worldwide without charging the earth’, with the company offering savings of up to 70% on standard carrier rates.
To send a 1kg parcel from the UK to Nigeria, you can expect to pay around £50. For a 20kg package, the price would be around £208. Delivery companies used in their comparison results include DHL, FedEx and UPS.
Parcel Compare also partners with some of the world’s leading delivery companies including UPS, DPD, FedEx, DHL and TNT. Their easy-to-use quote and comparison tool allows you to send parcels to 220 countries including countries in Africa. Prices start from just £30.
Using an Express service can mean your parcel reaches its destination in just 3 days. But even Economy delivery options are quick, taking just 4-6 days. The site offers instant quotes online with no hidden surcharges, claiming to save you up to 60% on the best couriers.
Now that you know some of the best comparison websites for parcel deliveries to Africa, we hope your sending experience is smooth and stress-free. Good luck!
