On the 22nd of January 2016 ParcelBright ceased to accept parcels through their website citing changes to the parent company CoFundIt Ltd, on an email sent to current customers. The message on their homepage currently reads:
Please note that due to important changes at Cofundit Ltd which trades as ParcelBright, we will not be in a position to offer any more courier services via this website and you should not attempt to place any orders – with effect from today, Friday 22 January 2016.
If, like many other ParcelBright users, you are needing to find an alternative to the service they provided then have no fear. There are a couple of options:
Use another parcel broker / reseller.
There are plenty out there. Though of course we recommend our own site. Head on over to our home page https://parcelbroker.co.uk/ today to get an instant quote and save up to 80% on parcel delivery.
Go direct with the carriers that ParcelBright use.
You could theoretically cut out the middle man, however, there are a few things to point out that may change your mind:
- Unless you're sending out hundreds of parcels a day don't expect the same rates. The rates most parcel brokers get are due to the amount they send.
- If the carrier network goes down you have no alternative to switch to at the click of a button, whereas with a broker they have a wide range of carriers (To name some of ours: DHL, UPS, DPD, TNT, FedEx and more).
- Costly and time consuming integration takes place over a matter of weeks to get set up. Get an instant quote and book straight away with us.
- Carrier systems often do not provide any real-time pricing or advice on the best service to select based on the size/weight and destination. This means staff could be selecting a more expensive, less efficient service and after the invoice arrives any overcharges and ancillaries mean unrecoverable lost profit.
