Before you send a parcel from the UK to the USA, you should check below for more information about how long it will take to the post the parcel to the USA, what is allowed and prohibited, plus work out which courier service works out as the best value for you.
Express couriers deliver parcels to destinations across the United States as quickly as possible, which is perfect if your parcel is very important and contains time sensitive items like documents, spare parts or anything urgent.
For such important and urgent items, we would advise using a more speedy expedite courier service such as;
Of course, not everyone needs to send a parcel quickly to the USA, many customers are looking for the cheapest and most cost-effective way to do so. As we send so many parcels for our customers from the UK to the USA, we have been provided with heavily discounted prices by the couriers and pass these savings on to you!
If you need a more affordable, but still quick delivery at a great price, then maybe Parcelforce is the courier service for you. Not only is the price great, but you can also either have the courier come and collect from your home or work address or you can Drop Off at the Post Office or Parcelforce Depot. When you send a parcel to the US using Parcelforce, it will be delivered in 3-4 working days and the prices we offer can be much cheaper than what is available at the Post Office.
DPD offer a cheaper alternative to the premium express delivery service to the USA, which is DPD Classic which takes 3-6 working days to arrive in the States and can be collected from you, or you can save yourself a bit of extra cash by dropping into a DPD Pickup shop. The service is the same as the express option in that Customs Documents are sent online, so you only need to print and attach a shipping label.
Many eBay and Shopify sellers use the cheaper delivery options as running a successful eCommerce business involves keeping shipping costs down, but by choosing a courier you can still provide your customers with a great level of service.
Using cheaper courier services to the USA doesn't mean a step down in quality, we still use premium couriers to handle your parcel so that you can track it to delivery and you can add extended liability to the booking as well to protect you from loss or damage.
Luckily, the United States has a long and deep connection to the United Kingdom, both politically and economically. It has excellent transport links and our competitive parcel delivery options, make the US a hugely attractive market for online sellers. The US market offers a huge export opportunity to British retailers, especially around the holiday peaks of November and December. If you are looking to sell online to the US there is a whole host of information to be found on the UK Export site.
Due to the size and scale of the States, delivery time is important and customers expect to receive items they have purchased online quickly, so make the most of our reliable and tracked courier services to meet the needs of consumers from New York to L.A.
In terms of Customs Documents, we know this is a worry for many customers who have not sent a parcel to the USA before. As it is outside of the EU you will need to complete these and provide the relevant information about what is in your parcel. Any customs duty will be owed by the recipient so check before you send about what the value of your items is.
We make life simple as we collect all of the information needed for the Customs form in the booking process, so you just have to print it out from your Parcel Monkey account once the order is placed and attach the documents in a plastic wallet or envelope on the outside of the box so that customs can check what is being sent.
a.) Clearly, list in detail all the items that are in your parcel and give an in-depth description of its value and what it looks like.
b.) Check that what you are sending is not on our prohibited items list and that you check with the US Customs Restrictions too
In most instances, importing items in restricted categories isn't entirely prohibited. Instead, regulations, limitations or warnings may apply. Shipping alcohol, for example, may be subject to limitations depending on the state of delivery, while shipping cultural artefacts requires a clear declaration of legal ownership.
Both military and biological shipments must have a license from the proper US agency in order to be imported legally. Some items cannot be imported at all, including cat and dog fur, drugs and paraphernalia, and endangered animals. There are also restrictions and prohibitions on food items.
For more information on the specific restrictions in all categories, see the official United States' guidelines. Common items that are sent that can cause a parcel to be returned include liquids, aerosols, nail varnish and batteries so please ensure these are not sent.
With its population of 308 million people, the US is an economic powerhouse. In fact, the United States has one of the world's strongest economies, so it's important to understand the ins and out of importing products to this nation. The United States does most of its shipping and trade with its immediate North American neighbours, Canada and Mexico. In addition, the Asian countries of China and Japan are strong trade partners
Not all of our customers are sending to consumers, the private market is huge with hundreds of parcels sent every day to friends and family who reside or are travelling in the USA. For large heavy parcels going to the USA especially, you can make significant savings by booking online via our quote engine.

I’m giving Parcel Monkey 3 stars as I send China teasets abroad and they will not compensate me if the parcel is lost or broken. What difference does it make what is in the box? If it is packed properly and it is damaged due to mishandling I should be compensated.
Very good service fast and reliable however once the parcel has left UK tracking is non existent
Simple and efficient
Have used on a number of occasions. SWIFT and reliable. Only once did we suffer any damage and to be honest I should have known better than to send glass- however well wrapped! Brilliant alternative to snail mail(dont use sm!), now my relatives in the USA get their pressies in a week or less not 6!
Always reliable, always on time, always good value.
