How long will it take to deliver?

ipostparcels provides cheap and convenient door to door delivery from the UK to France.

Whether you choose to have your parcels collected from your home or work address in the UK, you can usually expect delivery of your parcels within around 3 days from collection, depending on which service you use.

For a lower price, select the economy road route, which should arrive in 3-4 days - for a faster delivery time, take the worldwide air service of 2-3 days.

We make every effort to deliver your items within these timelines but sometimes it can take longer for your parcel to arrive to more rural or remote locations across the country.

Please note – national and local holidays in 2018 which may affect delivery times to France: Jan 1 / Mar 30 / Apr 2 / May 1, 8, 10, 21 / Jul 14 / Aug 15 / Nov 1, 11 / Dec 25, 26

Your parcel is in safe hands when you send it with ipostparcels so there’s no need to worry. We offer a free, online parcel tracking system to give you full visibility of the parcel on its journey. And if that’s not enough to ease your mind, we provide £50 free extended cover on your item – you can choose to add extra cover if you wish.

Do I need to deal with French customs?

It’s up to you to ensure your parcel’s contents are allowed into France – if you fail to do so, it may result in extra charges, the parcel being returned to you or possibly being destroyed. Avoid this by making sure you don’t send anything on the restricted or prohibited list. You should also take care to package the parcel carefully.

Sending personal effects to France? A full detailed itemised invoice clearly marked as “personal effects” with item values is required. If the Customs officer considers the contents are for personal use and not new, no duties or tax will be charged.

If all this sounds like hard work, don’t worry, we’ll help automatically generate any documents for you from the information you provide on the booking form.

For more information please see the France Diplomatie website.

HM Revenue & Customs has more information on tax and customs considerations for France.

What items can't I send to France?

As with all deliveries outside the UK, please ensure that your parcel contents are allowed into the destination country. France has a few items that are restricted for import which include things such as rubber erasers, pyjamas or nightdresses made from artificial fibres, silicone for plastic surgery, toys and games which contain copper sulphate, Viagra and vitamins.

You can visit the French Customs website and the French post office website, although they are both in French, a web browser such as Chrome should be able to translate this for you.

Some examples of items you can’t post include:

Restricted and Prohibited Goods


Illegal and dangerous




Drugs Counterfeit items

Meat and fish

Explosoves Protected animals and plants

Please be aware that we also have our own prohibited items list, in addition to country-specific restrictions.

How to package parcels to France

Although France isn’t very far from the UK, we still advise you take good care with packaging; your parcel will travel through a number of depots with automated sorting machines so be sure to pack your items well and use cushioning material inside your parcel to help protect the contents from damage.

We’ll transport parcels up to 25kg in weight, 80x80x80cm max in size. We always recommend you use a strong and sturdy outer box when sending your package and don’t overfill it, regardless of the dimensions of your parcel. For further advice, take a look at our handy international packaging guide for tips.

How safe will my parcel be?

From the time of collection (should you not be in, you can opt to leave your parcel in a safe place and our driver will collect it from there) to delivery, where it will be signed for by the recipient, we take good care of the items you send with us.

We also offer free online tracking to keep you fully updated on your parcel’s location, and provide £50 extended cover on your item as standard – you can choose to add extra cover for more valuable items if you wish.
