ParcelHero offers the following services to Canada:
Shipping costs and transit times
When you post a parcel to Canada, prices start from just £21.08. That is cheaper than the Post Office, and includes not just fast delivery from the UK, but top quality customer service and free insurance worth up to £50.00. Although transit times vary between the international post partner you choose, the quality service you’re getting doesn’t. ParcelHero is proactive when it comes to looking after your parcel - in the unlikely event that something goes wrong, we get in touch with you immediately.
There’s a lot of Canada to post a parcel to, with a wide variety of scenery to choose from - from cities like Toronto and Quebec to the Rockies. Your parcel might take a few days longer to arrive at a mountain cottage than it will to get to Montreal. Rural regions may also be classed as remote areas, which may cost more and take longer to deliver to. Those charges are taken into account during your booking however, so don’t worry about that.
Keep in mind that there are certain dates throughout the year, such as public holidays, where delivery to Canadian addresses can’t be made. This is particularly worth considering when you’re planning to post your Christmas gifts.
Shipping Restrictions and Custom Clearance
There are rules and regulations to keep in mind when you are shipping to Canada, which you should keep in mind before you send your parcel. You don’t need to worry about clearing customs if you’re shipping documents in an envelope, but all other packages need to be accompanied by proper paperwork. ParcelHero makes clearing customs easy though, by automatically generating your customs invoice when you make your booking.
Packaging Your Parcel
It takes a lot of work to get a parcel to Canada, and it changes hands plenty of times before final delivery. You’ll need to pack your items securely to make sure that they arrive in Canada, and don’t take any damage on the way. You can’t send goods in solid wood packaging, so if you’d like to send items in wooden packaging, you will need to contact the Canadian Customs authority.
