PACKING TIPS

How to prepare your parcel for delivery to the UK

If you could only do one thing to ensure your parcel will be delivered to the UK safe and sound, this thing would be to use correct packaging. To do that, we recommend using sturdy cardboard boxes as the outer packaging and following the steps below for preparing it:

  • Choose a box that is slightly bigger than the item
  • Wrap each item individually with bubble wrap
  • Place everything in the box and fill the voids with cushioning materials
  • Use tape to close and secure the box

International customs for parcels sent to the UK

If you send a parcel to the United Kingdom from another country, you need to fill in a commercial or proforma invoice, depending on whether the goods are for business or personal use. You may need to provide additional customs documentation for the local authorities when organising parcel delivery to the UK. We recommend checking the rules that apply to you on the government websites of both countries in advance.

What can’t I send in a parcel to the United Kingdom?

The list features products that can be regarded as dangerous for shipping, such as liquids or breakable items, and also items that may be prohibited for import by the local government.
Before preparing your package for delivery to the UK, we recommend checking the complete list of items prohibited by couriers and avoiding including any of them on your shipment. If you are shipping from abroad, you should also check the regulations from both pick-up and delivery countries.
Can parcels be delivered to business addresses in the UK?
Yes, when sending parcels to the UK, you can choose any business address for the delivery as long as it is accessible for the courier van. If there is an access code or doorbell name/number that would help the driver reach the recipient, please include it in the address details when booking parcel delivery to the UK.
