Check what you can ship internationally
It is very important to check before you send a parcel internationally, that the contents are not prohibited. Although we do have a list of prohibited items that you can't generally can't send via couriers, each nation would have their restrictions that you would need to be aware of. For instance, India doesn't allow baby gender prediction kits and South Africa restricts the importation of skin care items, and USA has strict rules as directed by the FDA. Check on the customs website of the destination you are shipping to that your item is allowed, or ask us for help via the Live Chat tool or from your Parcel Monkey account.
It is crucial that when you book your international parcel delivery that you describe the contents of the package as precisely as possible. The courier will then have another opportunity to ensure that nothing illegal is being carried or if you are trying to ship something that may incur duty when entering the destination country. This process isn't full proof but is another layer of control to help have a trouble-free delivery.
Excellent packaging is key
Just because you may have written "fragile" on your parcel, it doesn't mean that you can't take care in packaging it. Spending another five minutes using bubble wrap, newspaper and ensuring that a sturdy cardboard box is used can save an hour or so of the recipient taking photos of the damage and you chasing up a claim. We also advise to double box, your parcel will be travelling with millions of others across the globe so protect it as much as you can.
If you choose to re-use cardboard boxes from previous deliveries, ensure old address details and barcodes are removed as well as any stickers which may indicate an issue to the couriers. There may still be labels or stickers on the underside of the box so give a thorough check, to prevent routing issues and unwanted delays. It's important to ensure you correctly measure and weigh your item to avoid additional charges, it is best to do this once it is packed and ready to ship.
You can upgrade to as much as £1,000 loss/damage cover when you book your collection.
