You can get an instant quick quote to check the price you’ll pay for International delivery – provided you already know your parcel dimensions and weights. If you don’t have a ruler or scales to hand, visit our help and advice information and take a look at the lifehack page on how to calculate the weight of your parcel without scales. It’s very important to use accurate weights and dimensions when sending your parcel, as we use these measurements to calculate the correct price for your parcel delivery. If the weight or dimensions are greater than those booked online, it will result in added expense and cause delays to your parcels delivery time.   

Restricted and prohibited items for International deliveries

Parcel deliveries to International destinations need some consideration when it comes to what you can and can’t send – not only do we have our own list of International prohibited items that cannot be carried within the ipostparcels network, but each country will have regulations that include their own prohibited and restricted items. Some of these may not seem out of the ordinary to you, however sending them through the post can result in delays at customs, the return of parcels, or in some more severe cases, the disposal of parcels.

As well as checking the ipostparcels prohibited and restricted goods information, we strongly recommend you check the customs information for the individual country to which you’re posting, just to make sure you don’t send anything you shouldn’t.
