Do I need to deal with United States Customs?

For any parcel to be delivered outside of the EU, you’ll need to fill out a customs form. This tells the Customs Agents about the contents of your package so they can process it properly and speedily.

To avoid any delays your parcel must be accompanied with the correct customs documents. Conveniently, during the booking process, these forms will be auto filled in and emailed to you, along with your labels once you have completed booking your parcel.

This may sound complicated, but we’ll help automatically generate these documents for you from the information you provide on the booking form. You’ll just need to print and sign them, place them in an envelope marked ‘customs documents’ and attach them securely to the outside of the package.

It’s also worth knowing that US customs may apply additional duty or tax to your shipment and these charges will be applied to the recipient of the parcel. As these charges are applied at point of entry to the USA we cannot include these charges in our prices.

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

What items can’t I send to the USA?

The US is fairly open when it comes to trade policies, but there are few important factors to note when sending a parcel to America.  

Please refer to our prohibited items list to see which items are permissible to send to the USA. Military and biological shipments must have licensing from the proper US agency in order to be imported legally.

The USA has strict rules around meat and meat products from countries with risk of BSE (Mad Cow Disease). This broadly means you shouldn’t send from the UK anything with meat, milk, egg, poultry and their products (including products made from them) as they are either prohibited or restricted from entering the United States.

It’s also important to note that the USA will not do business with the following countries; Iran, Libya, Iraq, Cuba, North Korea, Syria and Sudan. Whilst it’s usually ok to ship parcels from the UK, if the products have originated from these countries it may cause issues.

For more information on specific restrictions please see the official United States guidelines. You can also find a list of restricted and prohibited items here but examples of items you can’t post to the USA include:


Restricted and Prohibited Goods


Illegal and dangerous


Food products (prepared)

Flammable fuels and liquids

Game and Hunting Trophies

Fruits and vegetables



Dairy products


Textiles and clothing

Meat and meat products

Medications Plants and seeds


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

How to package parcels to the USA

We’ll transport parcels up to 25kg in weight, 80x80x80cm max in size. Visit our help page on sending large and heavy parcels to the US.

Regardless of the size of your parcel, care and thought is needed when packing your parcel for delivery to the States as it will be handled multiple times in various locations while in transit. Individual wrapping, use of bubble wrap and a sturdy outer container sealed with strong tape will help to keep your parcel secure.

Consider also the climate in the US when packaging your parcel contents which may be sensitive to temperature; it can be extremely hot during the summer and very cold during the winter.

See our handy international packaging guide for more packaging hints and tips.

How safe will my parcel be?

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.

Did you know?

The US is the 4th largest country in the world by land area and 3rd by population… and serves up 100 acres of pizza every single day.

The longest road in the United States is Route 20… at 3,365 miles. With distances like that, it’s hardly surprising to learn that the US also uses more petroleum than any other country in the world.
