Getting a quote for international parcel delivery couldn’t be easier with EasyCargo. All you have to do is head to our quick quote tool, enter your collection and delivery address, and finally input your parcel’s weight and dimensions to reveal the courier services and rates that suit your requirements.

What parcel weight and size limits should I expect?

All our couriers use the parcel’s weight and size, along with its final destination, to determine the price of postage and the international parcel delivery service that’s the best fit. By entering your measurements and weight into the courier quote tool, we can calculate the volumetric weight and bulkiness of the item you are looking to send.

Every EasyCargo courier has their own weight and size limits however. But thanks to the diverse range of couriers that we work with, you’ll always find a service that suits the size of your parcel.

Most economy international parcel delivery services are restricted to the transport of parcels up to 30kg. Our pallet delivery option, which transports palletised goods via air and sea freight, provides a more suitable alternative for heavier, larger and bulk loads.

What are the postage costs for international parcel delivery?

Postage rates vary from courier to courier and from delivery destination to destination. You can however rest assured that the courier quotes you receive from us are among the most competitive around for your collection address, delivery destination, and parcel size and weight.

The security of your parcel is of the utmost importance to us and the reputable couriers that we collaborate with. That’s why all our deliveries, including our international services, are fully insured with free £50 parcel protection coming as standard. UK, European and international deliveries are also fully trackable.

Additional transit insurance is available to purchase for a small fee. So too is signature on delivery, which will ensure your parcel is received on time and by the right person when it reaches its international destination.

How long will it take for my delivery to arrive at its destination?

Delivery times vary depending on the international courier service you choose via our parcel delivery price comparison site. The expected delivery time however is clearly stated by each courier throughout EasyCargo’s quotation and booking process.

As we mentioned earlier, all deliveries can be tracked so you can keep tabs on your item every step of the way.

Will my item be subject to customs procedures and fees?

When sending your parcel to any destination outside of the UK, you can expect some form of customs procedures and fees.

As of 1st January 2021, even goods travelling from the UK to Europe have to clear customs under the terms of the Brexit deal. Depending on the specific customs procedures of your delivery destination, you will need to provide documentation to ensure it can clear customs without delay.

Charges may also be due before your parcel can complete the final leg of its international journey, with the recipient required to pay in most instances. Find out more about customs charges.

How do I know if my item is prohibited in its delivery destination?

There are a number of items that cannot be sent via courier, that’s why we recommend checking our Prohibited Items list before booking a delivery with us. Country-specific restrictions may apply to the delivery of your international parcel too. Be sure to check current regulations and requirements with the relevant government authorities before booking your delivery.
