ParcelHero offers everything you need to send to Spain in one website – you can compare courier quotes, book a delivery and track your parcel all in one place. Forget Post Office queues, we will collect right from your door, whether you’re a business shipping to a customer in Madrid, or an individual sending a gift to the Canary Islands.
Whatever you are looking to send, we offer a range of delivery options with couriers you can trust, including:
There are no hidden charges – once you tell us your destination address we quote you the final price you will have to pay. And if you book in time we can even collect your packaged goods on the same day (this does not apply for oversized items, which require 24 hours’ advanced booking).
Shipping Costs and Transit Times
The price of parcel delivery to Spain starts from as little as £17.53 and comes with £50.00 free insurance for added peace of mind. Not only are our prices cheaper than standard post, but we’re faster too – our express delivery will see your items arrive in Spain the following day. And if you want to save even more, our economy delivery takes between 2-4 days, the choice is yours.
From Andalucía to Catalunya, and even the distant Canary Islands, Spain is a huge country with many beautiful and remote regions. Delivery to destinations off the beaten track may take a little longer and cost a little more, but we will include this in your initial quote, so you always know what you’re paying for.
The Spanish may take siestas, but our delivery drivers only rest on official holidays. In Spain many regions have their own bank holidays, such as Andalucía Day or the Day of the Balearic Islands. On these days we will not deliver, so if you’re planning to send a gift or other parcel around these times be sure to book early.
Shipping Restrictions and Customs Clearance
Spain is a member of the European Union, which means that your parcel will not be charged duties when it enters the country from another EU member state. Most shipments will not have VAT applied either, as long as they are sent to a VAT-registered business or person in Spain. As long as the United Kingdom remains in the EU these rules will apply to all goods sent from the UK to Spain.
If you want to send from a country outside the EU, such as Canada or China, then you will be charged VAT for parcels worth more than 22 Euros, and duties for packages valued at more than 150 EUR. ParcelHero creates all the customs forms you will need as you make your booking.
There are some items which are prohibited or restricted when shipping to Spain. These regulations are mainly governed by the EU, including a ban on most US beef and beef products. There are also heavy restrictions on gambling products. If you are unsure, check the official Spanish Customs site before you send.
Packaging Your Parcel
As your parcel makes its way to Spain it is likely to come in to contact with many different people, travel on multiple vehicles as well as travelling on conveyor belts at sorting hubs and airports. To protect it from any bumps and knocks it might receive in transit be sure to wrap your items individually before placing them in a new box.
To help your parcel to arrive safely, ParcelHero advises wrapping the item in bubble wrap and cushioning it with either newspaper or parcel chips. The item should not be able to move inside the box, so make sure you fill all the available space with your chosen cushioning material.
