  • Insert the details of your shipment;
  • Fill in the order form;

Additional Information

Estimated delivery time – courier to France

You should keep in mind that the estimated delivery time that you receive is not guaranteed. That means that your package can arrive at its destination either before or after the estimated delivery time. For example, the estimated delivery time for shipping a package from Italy to France is only one (1) business days.

Let’s say that your package arrives late to its destination. There might be countless reasons for that. For example, courier services to a rural French village – like Moncontour or Blesle- will require more time than a courier service to Paris. Delays may apply as well when there are National Holidays between the pick-up and delivery dates. For instance, do not expect an immediate delivery of the package if the service is booked before the Bastille Day. To avoid any inconveniences, we would recommend you to place an order in advance, when knowing that there is an upcoming holiday.

Label and paperwork – courier to France

The label is crucial for successful delivery. That is because it provides important information for the shipment to be moved from point A to point B.

Please note that it should contain the name and address of the sender as well as of the recipient, shipment details (size, the total weight, the number of pieces etc.), the information on the type of service, the description of the content, tracking number and barcodes that enable the correct handling of the shipment by the courier services.

Those who want to send their packages from France do not have to print the labels themselves. However, this does not apply to specific collection countries, such as Spain.

Delivery considerations for courier services to France

Things to remember or to pay attention to when shipping a package to France:

  • Postal codes – in France they consist of 5 digits. The more important the city, the simpler the postal code, so pay attention when booking courier services to less known French towns, as the postal codes might be a bit complicated. It is also not rare that many adjacent villages share the same postal code, which is primarily associated with a bigger post office. You should also know that Monaco is part of the French postal code system. However, when sending a parcel there, you should always indicate the country as Monaco and not France.
  • Name on the doorbell – make sure that the recipient of the package has his/her name on the doorbell of the property the delivery will take place. In bigger cities, such as Paris, you need a door code to gain access to certain apartment buildings.
  • Check the integrity of the shipment as soon as it arrives in France – that is because we recommend our customers to report any damages to the courier driver and sign the “Proof of Delivery” (POD) accordingly. You can learn more by visiting our blog.

Additional considerations:

  • Our couriers are not able to send to P.O. boxes.
  • The service is door-to-door, therefore, there is no need to leave your home in the search of drop-off points.

Tips to ensure a successful delivery:

  • Have someone at the address in the given time frame;
  • Appoint another person, if you cannot be at the delivery address at the delivery time;
  • Make sure you are reachable in case the courier decides to call;
  • In France, the courier provider will attempt to deliver the shipment twice.
  • The parcel is stored in the local depot from where the consignee has to collect it from;
  • If the selected courier company stores the parcels in their local depot, the consignee has to pick it up in maximum 7 days.

Clearing French customs

Operations carried out within the EEA are free of duty. The Common Customs Tariff of the European Union applies to goods sent to France that are originating outside Europe. Keep in mind that St-Pierre and Miquelon, New Caledonia, Wallis and Futuna Islands, French Polynesia and the French Southern Antarctic Lands are not part of the EU customs territory. The Principality of Monaco is not part of the EU but is part of the EU customs territory. Also, the Principality of Andorra is not part of the EU, but it has had a special arrangement with the EU since 1990.
