Absolutely fantastic service
Documents delivered from UK to India in only 5 days. Costs less then Royal mail and much more efficient. Keeps you updated on every step. Highly Recommended.
Nina Wanda Alam
I recommend the great service.
I knew that parcel will arrive between 5-9 days. It reached the destination within 6 days which is great. The only thing that I would change was collection. I would arrange for the collection from home as I was close to beg the person at the store to receive it in the first place. Dropping the parcel was incredibly difficult, however the service itself was great.

Good value, fast and reliable service.
We used ParcelHero to send some personal belongings long haul, cheaper than additional baggage on a flight. Wish I'd used these for everything as although slightly more expensive than Send My Bag, this parcel arrived quicker than ones we sent 2 weeks previous SMB.

Importing low value items into the UK

Goods under £15 imported into the UK do not incur any VAT or duty. Goods under £135 are considered low value and therefore only incur 20% VAT and no customs duty, therefore the most you will pay for any item under £135 is £27.

Importing items over £135 into the UK

If your item is over £135, then it may be subject to UK duty and 20% VAT. To check how much the recipient will have to pay, check using the UK governments Tariff Code checker. If charges are due, the carrier will contact the recipient prior to delivery to request payment.

Clearance charges for dutiable shipments

Every carrier charges a fee for clearing dutiable goods through UK customs. Here's a breakdown of the charges by carrier:
DHL: £11.00 or 2.5% of the total Duty and/or VAT incurred, whichever is the greater.
UPS: £11.50 or 2.5% of the total Duty and/or VAT incurred, whichever is the greater.
Fedex: 12.00 or 2.5% of the total Duty and/or VAT incurred, whichever is the greater.
