Shipping from the UK to Germany

Shipping to Continental Europe requires:

  • the right connections

  • finding a good shipping partner

That is where Parcelabc comes through. We are motivated to help a sender find the best shipping solution for his or hers parcel. Shipping from the UK to Germany is our specialty because our connections range from small local postage companies to global postage giants and we can offer a broad range of postage services that the customer can choose from

Germany has a few strict customs regulations that you must follow in order to avoid any confrontation with the legal operatives. A quick list of items that are either forbidden or regulated:

  • Weapons, ammunition – have to be declared and you either have to have a permit from the consulate or these get rejected

  • Pornographic material – depicting something involving extreme violence can become problematic

  • Counterfeit products – with tags. Germany is one of the strictest in protecting the brand rights and preserving the country from counterfeits.

  • Pets and animals – subject of strict regulations so it is better to avoid selling or transporting pets without the help of a consulate or Parcelabc.

  • Plants – rare or suspicious plants may require a “Plant passport”

  • Propaganda – Nazi propaganda is not welcome unless it is depicted in a non-glorifying way. Such as in documentaries or history textbooks. The same goes for other types of propaganda and hatred inciting items.

Before you ship a packet from the United Kingdom to Germany, make sure you understand the responsibilities outlined here.

Regarding the UK originated parcels, German postage experts suggest avoiding controversial items and materials. Germans are known for the fact that they respect their laws a lot, so they will not look for compromises if something is done wrong. Parcelabc would like to add that you can also choose the best way to ship your package on our website. Fill in the quote to get suggestions for carriers and compare the prices and other details.

Upon arrival, shipments are inspected by officers, because the UK is not a part of the Schengen area. If the provided documents are accurate and officers have no reason to open up the parcel, it should clear customs very quickly, but in other situations, your parcel can get opened and looked at. Be careful and follow the guidelines we describe here or contact our team directly by e-mail so you can avoid unfortunate incidents.

If the parcel is not cleared it gets viewed at by custom experts. If the parcel and the content are proven to be dangerous or there has been a violation, a fine is written at the expense of either the sender or the courier. Depending on the severity of the violation, the packet either gets held up, sent back or continues on. If it is determined that the shipment is safe, it returns to the postal route. Parcelabc recommends avoiding sending something with intent of hiding a commercial purpose or weapons/dangerous propaganda type materials.

Once the package gets cleared, carriers are going to handle your parcel until the very end. Shipping from the UK to Germany requires your decisions to be swift and cheap. Parcelabc takes pride in giving the customer the power to determine the best way to ship his or hers packet. Choose from the options available and contact our team if any questions arise.

If you are looking for someone to get your parcel from the United Kingdom over to Germany, Parcelabc is the go-to service provider in this field. We offer:

  • uncompromised quality

  • rapid responses

  • client-oriented service

all of this, with the availability of choice for the shipping companies and methods.
