Dry Ice

Dry Ice Courier Service in the UK and Europe

PDQ Specialist Couriers provides customers with a Dry Ice courier solution for their items when normal frozen conditions are insufficient. To offer our customers added peace of mind, we have strategic locations throughout the UK and Europe where additional Dry Ice can be obtained to either top-up levels for longer journeys or in case of an emergency.

Our state of the art courier vehicles are equipped with the latest temperature monitoring technology and can we ensure that all vehicles transporting items packing in dry ice also maintain a frozen temperature outside of the box. This ensures the longevity of the dry ice and guarantees your items reach their final destination in their optimal condition and without being compromised.

I have used PDQ several times and they are so professional and careful with my precious cargo! Furthermore, their customer service is spot on! Every person I have dealt with at the company, whether virtually or in person, has been polite, friendly and attentive. I can't fault them!


Would just like to say a massive thank you for the service you have provided over the past couple of years (or however long it has been, I have lost track of time!). Everybody, from your office staff to your drivers, have been nothing short of outstanding, and have made my life a lot easier. You have saved our team countless hours and you should all be proud of the service you have provided to the nation, it may not feel like you’ve made a big impact as I’m sure you provide the same service to all of your customers, but you have saved the taxpayers a lot of money!
