Delivery times to ship to China

 

Sending a parcel to China couldn’t be easier! We offer cheap and convenient door-to-door postage to China from the UK. Simply book your delivery online and our drivers will come and collect your parcel from your home or work on a day of your choosing. Your parcel is taken to its local depot, sorted and shipped overnight to one of our distribution centres where we then deliver your parcel to China.

Whether you choose to have your parcels collected from your home or work address, you can expect shipping to China to be completed within three to four days from collection.

We make every effort to deliver within these guidelines; but please bear in mind it can take longer for your parcel to arrive, especially in the more remote locations of China.


Chinese customs rules

 

For any parcel to China, you’ll need to fill out a customs form. This tells the Customs Agents in the destination country about the contents of your package so they can process it correctly.

As with most consignments to international destinations, when you send a parcel to China from the UK, there are occasionally customs duties and import taxes that need to be paid.

While you can’t pay these charges with us, when you book your delivery, we will provide you with all the correct forms you need to help your parcel through both UK and Chinese customs.

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

According to new China Customs regulations, the phone number for the ultimate consignee is a mandatory requirement for all shipments coming into China. An invalid phone number, such as “0000”, ”123456789”, or “-“, is not acceptable for customs declaration. Failure to provide the correct consignee phone number will lead to a clearance delay.


What items can't I send to China?

 

There are many rules and regulations around sending a parcel to China, some of which are different from those you might expect or are used to sending to other countries. The Chinese authorities also change their laws regularly, so we advise you re-check the regulations each time you send a parcel. Visit the General Administration of Customs People’s Republic of China website to make sure your parcels are good to send.

China prohibits anything marked "Republic of China" or "Made in China," and can also confiscate materials that promote political opinions that the government does not agree with. Restricted items include firearms, perishable food, live animals, money, alcohol, tobacco and precious metals.

It’s down to you to make sure you’re not sending any prohibited or restricted items into China. Remember that prohibitions and restrictions vary from country to country and can sometimes apply to items that you may think are ordinary, so it’s vital to check that your parcel contents will be allowed into China. Failure to do some may result in additional charges or even the destruction of your parcel.

Some examples of items you can’t post to China include:

RESTRICTED AND PROHIBITED GOODS


Food

Illegal and dangerous

Other

Milk powder and baby milk

Flammable fuels and liquids

Wood, bamboo, rattan and cane

Meat, poultry and fish products

Drugs (prescription or illicit)

Perfume

Dairy products

Weaponry

Currency

Fruit and vegetables

Firearms

Precious stones, metals and pearls

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


How to package parcels to China


We would recommend being vigilant with packaging for your parcel to China – remember, your items will take quite a long journey and will pass through several depots with automated sorting machines. Be sure to take extra effort to package your items well and use some internal cushioning material for your parcel. Take a look at our packaging advice here.

We’ll transport parcels up to 25kg in weight, 80 x 80 x 80cm max in size and we strongly recommend you use a strong outer box when sending your package and don’t overfill it, regardless of the dimensions of your parcel. If you’d like some further advice on packaging, take a look at our handy international packaging guide for tips to get everything there soundly.
