ParcelHero offers the following services to Jamaica:
Shipping Costs and Transit Times
With ParcelHero, you can ship a parcel to Jamaica with £50.00 free enhanced cover and up to 3 free delivery attempts from only £25.44. Every shipment we send goes fully tracked and is scanned at every step of the delivery process. You can track your shipment on our website to keep up to date with its progress, and once your parcel has been signed for by the recipient we will send you an email to let you know that it has been delivered safely and securely.
We work with fast and reliable carriers so transit times are estimated at just 2- 4 days to this area of the world. Transit times are pending customs clearance, but it is unlikely you will experience delays due to customs clearance if you supply all the necessary information about your shipment and avoid sending prohibited or restricted items.
Small islands dotted around the Jamaican coastline and other hard to reach locations are classed as remote areas. These zones will incur a small surcharge to cover the extra time and fuel required to reach them. The ParcelHero wizard will calculate any surcharges applied when you enter the town or post code into the quick quote form. The quotes for parcel delivery that you receive are inclusive of any surcharges, so you won’t get any unwanted surprises as you progress through the booking process.
Shipping Restrictions and Custom Clearance
Jamaican Customs authorities regularly update their import restrictions and prohibitions, so it is worth taking a look at what these contain before you send your parcel. Together with the usual banned items such as counterfeit money, there are some more unusual items on this non-exhaustive list such as publications based on divination, magic, cultism and supernatural arts.
Once you have booked your parcel delivery, we will generate a customs invoice using the information that you have supplied. You will need to print this off and securely attach it to your parcel as every shipment will need to be cleared by the local Jamaican customs authorities.
Duties and taxes may be applied upon import to Jamaica by the local authorities. This is not a cost set by ParcelHero and therefore we cannot include these charges as part of your quote. If you have questions or concerns regarding duties and taxes, feel free to get in touch with our friendly customer service team who will be happy to help.
Obscene literature and images of any kind is absolutely prohibited from entry to Jamaica, so be careful if you choose newspaper to cushion your items as this may stop your parcel from being cleared by customs if the pages are deemed obscene.
Don’t forget that your parcel will be travelling a long way and therefore needs to be packaged in a box strong enough to withhold shocks and having other parcels stacked on top of it. Cushioning your item and using a good quality parcel tape is highly recommended.
