Customs Rules for International Vehicle Shipping

When shipping car parts outside the UK or European Union, customs documents are required and automotive deliveries may be subject to duties and tax. When you complete our Instant Quote booking tool, ParcelHero automatically provides the relevant documentation for your parcel. Your customs docs inform customs authorities in the destination country which car parts you are shipping, their value and the reason for shipping. Our customer service experts are on hand to assist customers throughout the process. More information on customs rules and regulations.

Any additional duty or taxes are not charged by the courier, they are applied by customs in the destination country and are normally the responsibility of the recipient of the parcel and cannot be included in your ParcelHero quote. To avoid any delays at customs, customers are advised to check the recipient country’s customs restrictions and prohibition lists. It is important to be aware that each country has different regulations so please check before making your booking.

ParcelHero Labelling & Packaging

To avoid any damage in transit, especially if you are sending high-value specialist car parts, then it is important to package your parcel correctly. Particularly so if you are sending an international shipment as this will undergo a greater number of handling stages. We recommend ensuring your parcel is packaged correctly in line with ParcelHero’s labelling and packaging guidelines.

ParcelHero advises:

  • Wrap your car parts in bubble wrap, paying extra attention to anything fragile.
  • Place your car parts within a strong box, ideally a new box.
  • Ensure your items are suspended within the box and are not adjacent to the box walls. If sending multiple items in the same box, make sure the items are insulated from each other.
  • Make sure your customs documents are securely fastened to the package exterior.
  • Ensure labels are clearly and securely fixed to the outer packaging, with a ‘spare’ set of labels placed inside.
  • Use dedicated packing tape and ensure there is no loose exterior trimmings. Pay particular attention to the box seams. If using a second-hand box, make sure the box joins are reinforced.

Please note that car parts are often come in odd sizes and weights and are therefore listed on our non-compensation list. We can still provide cover, however, with our extensive range of insurance options. An image of the packaging must be sent in order to approve your packaging before shipping. Your shipment will be covered once your packaging is approved. Our UK-based customer care team is available to assist with this if required.
