As the USA is outside of the EU, you will need to provide a customs declaration to send a parcel to the USA from the UK, but Parcel Monkey makes this a really simple process and takes all the information required during the booking process. All you need to do is print off the completed customs documents, put them in a plastic wallet or envelope and attach them to your parcel.
Just make sure you clearly list all the items in your parcel and provide an accurate value.
Yes, parcels sent from the Uk to the USA will require customs duty to be paid and this will vary depending on the value of your goods.
It’s important to note that all items sent via Parcel Monkey are sent Delivered Duty Unpaid (DDU), which means that any import taxes will need to be paid by the recipient before your parcel is released by US Customs. Please ensure you are aware of these charges and include the correct contact details for the recipient so they can be contacted to arrange payment.
While the United States has fairly open trade policies, there are some import restrictions.
In most instances, importing items in restricted categories isn't entirely prohibited. Instead, regulations, limitations or warnings may apply. For example, shipping alcohol may be subject to limitations depending on the state of delivery, while shipping cultural artefacts requires a clear declaration of legal ownership. For more information on the specific restrictions in all categories, see the official United States' guidelines.
Before you send a parcel to the USA please also check the Parcel Monkey prohibited and restricted items list. Common items that can cause a parcel to be returned include liquids, aerosols, nail varnish and batteries so please ensure these are not sent.
The US market offers a huge export opportunity to British online retailers and many eBay and Shopify sellers use our discounted parcel delivery prices to reduce the cost of postage to the USA.

Excellent service from start to finish. I sent a parcel to Florida from the Uk using Parcel Monkey. The parcel arrived at its destination within 48 hours … amazing!
Easy to use. No silly extra charges like some other companies. Would definitely recommend.
Easy , quick and efficient!
So fast and very efficient. Northumberland to Connecticut, USA in under a week, exceeded my expectations. Not cheap but great service.
Delivery of a large 14kg parcel to America in 2 days - Never I said - well it arrived at its destination in Ohio on the second day even though it was opened and inspected by customs on that side.
Very simple to do, even the customs declaration. Tracking a little slow sometimes but it arrived at its destination when it said it would. Would definitely use again.
A simple to use website and amazing prices!
I couldn’t believe my parcel was delivered within a couple of days. When I read it wd be 1-2 days I wasn’t sure it was correct but my friend in Los Angeles couldn’t believe it either when it arrived in the 2 days. Wonderful service. Comparative site that never lets you down. I’m always happy with the service.
