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 3 days* from collection, depending on the service you choose.

Read open and honest reviews

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 German customs?

It’s your responsibility to ensure your parcel’s contents are allowed into Germany - failing to do so may result in extra charges, the parcel being returned or possibly even 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.

If 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.

More information on shipments into Germany from within the EU is available on the Central Customs Authority website.

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

How to package parcels to Germany

Although Germany doesn’t seem far from the UK, we still advise you take 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 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.
