It's often very difficult to send parcels to the Caribbean as cheaply as perhaps other countries in the region such as Mexico or the USA due to lack of direct flights to many of the island nations. Often flights will land at Barbados and their cargo being offloaded and sent onto much smaller craft to make their destinations. Even then either another, very light, aircraft or even boat are required before the final destination is reached - especially the Bahamas and its many hundred small islands. However, we make the most of providing couriers with vast amounts of parcels to get access to lower shipping costs than individuals can obtain.
We have the following Carribbean destinations covered plus can advise on estimated delivery times & give you competitive courier prices.

Despite many Caribbean countries being members of the Commonwealth, you will still have to attach a pseudo-customs declaration to the outside of your parcel to help it pass through international borders with ease. Many countries in the region have restrictions which are relevant specifically to them, and you will have to be aware of those rules, in addition to our own before you arrange your parcel for collection.
In terms of the "invoice" that needs to be attached to your parcel, you will be given a brief form to fill out in the booking process which then manifests into the customs documents which are provided upon placing the order. Simply list what you are sending in detail, the value of it and any other information that is requested. Print this out and attach to your consignment ready to send to the Caribbean.
We offer a wide range of courier services to the Islands in the Caribbean, including services from TrakPak, Asendia and to some locations Parcelforce. Express shipping to this region is generally carried out by DHL and we have a discounted service with them available through our quote engine. Often the best value delivery service to this part of the world is the Parcel Monkey Air Express solution. This is collected in the UK by Parcelforce if not a huge parcel, DX if it is, who then ship to a freight forwarder at Heathrow who dispatch your parcel overseas generally with DHL. This means you can still enjoy express air shipping to the Caribbean for a fraction of the cost, whilst only adding 1 or 2 days to the transit time. This service comes out on top in terms of price time after time, and you can still track it in full door to door via your PM order number provided when you book.
