ELAINE BROWN
Great price and great service
Had some confusion when email received saying DDP had tried to deliver a parcel to the Netherlands at 00.46 Contacted Parcel hero who looked into the matter and emailed back straight away to say that the driver had actually not attempted to deliver but had run out of time and delivery would be made later in the day. Parcel arrived as planned later that day. Would definitely use Parcel Hero again.

Good sevice for awkward sized parcel
Picked up on time & delivered on specified day and was able to track its progress Very few carriers would take a 220 x 33 x 18cm parcel withou it costing more than the item I was returning. Would definitely recommend this carrier.

How it works

With ParcelHero shipping to the UK is easy. We email the shipping documents to the person we're collecting from and book-in the pick-up on your behalf. Simply track your shipment if you need to change the collection date or rebook.

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.
