International posting advice

Sending parcels to anywhere in the world with ipostparcels is simple and affordable –we keep our prices low without compromising on service, offering collection from your home or work address, £50 cover for items (which can be upgraded to cover more valuable articles) and a parcel tracker service all as standard for international deliveries.

We employ the best people to transport the consignments in our care, meaning we can assure you that your parcel arrives intact and in the same condition they were sent.   

There are, however, several things you can do to ensure a successful delivery; from when you decide what to send (is it allowed in the post and will it be accepted by the destination country customs agents?), completing the correct paperwork (what documentation do I need to include?) and much more - see the guides below for posting help and advice for international parcel delivery with ipostparcels.
