Covid-19 Update

We are still collecting and delivering parcels across the UK and delivering worldwide. All of our drivers are making contact-free collections and deliveries.

We have suspended all UK drop-off and collection services, as well as deliveries to some international destinations. The only UK service available is our Next Day door-to-door service. Please note, all domestic prices shown on the site are for this service.

Unfortunately unforeseen circumstances outside of our control can sometimes cause deliveries to be delayed. The most common reasons for deliveries to be delayed in the UK or abroad can be down to insufficient packaging/protection of a parcel, if the correct carriage has not been paid for the exact size and weight of your parcel or if the contents of the parcel contains restricted or prohibited items.

Internationally, there can also be delays if the paperwork/customs documentation has incorrect/lack of relevant information.

Forces outside of our control can also cause delays – such as extreme weather (heavy snowfall, flooding, fires) or strikes in the destination country.

Finally, it is important that you do not wrap your parcel in black plastic; automated sortation machinery is unable to process it, meaning your parcel will be delayed.

If you have either shipped or you're waiting to receive an international item then you can use our International tracking. Please note this link is only for 'International Air Service' orders.

  • You will be taken out to an external link
  • It can take a few seconds until your tracking information is found
  • Once your order is found; click 'Details' and you will be able to see the status of your parcel at each stage it has been scanned.

Unfortunately we don’t offer the ability to choose a time for parcel collection. However, a 1 hour collection window will be sent to you by email on the morning of the collection so you don’t have to be in all day.

We have over 50 depots nationwide. Please check the local depot page of our website for your nearest drop off depot. Just enter your postcode and hit search.

Alternatively, we have 3,500 DHL Parcel UK ServicePoints across the UK where parcels can be sent or collected. Visit our ServicePoint page to see your closest drop-off location.

As your package is being delivered internationally, we will need to generate customs documents for you to allow your parcel to pass through customs.

  • All invoices must be typed and not written. 5 copies will print out with your label.
  • All details on the waybill (label) & invoice must match.
  • In the customs details section, you will need to provide your VAT status. If you are a VAT registered company, you will need to provide a VAT number as well.
  • If you are a VAT registered company and are sending a parcel to outside of the EU, you will need to give an EORI number. If you do not have an EORI number you can register for one on the HMRC website.
  • Next, select a reason for why you are sending the goods from the ‘Export reason’ drop-down.
  • You will need to tell us the country where the goods were manufactured. Fill this field in to the best of your knowledge.
  • You will need to provide a description, value and tariff code for each item in your parcel.
  • If you do not know the tariff code, click the ‘Browse for code’ link and type a brief description of the goods. You will be given a list of tariff codes which match your search – select the one which best describes your item.
  • For parcels being sent to Norway or Switzerland: the invoice must state the buyer’s full name (initials are unacceptable).
  • For parcels being sent to Brazil: the Cadastro Pessoa Fisica (CPF/ Tax ID) is needed. Simply complete the ‘Recipient tax ID’ field under the customs details section.
  • All invoice print outs should be of good quality to ensure customs officials in the destination country are able to read it. All sections of the invoice must be completed in full.
  • All copies of the invoice must be securely fixed to the parcel.

Failure to comply with these requirements may result in unnecessary delays and/ or the return of the consignment at an extra cost which will be beyond our control.

More information regarding invoices can be found here.

Once your order has been confirmed it is not possible to make any amendments.

If you wish to cancel your order this must be done 24hrs before the collection date or before dropping off at one of our DHL Parcel UK depots or ServicePoints.

To ensure that your parcels are delivered as smoothly as possible please take note of the packaging guidelines below to help prevent damage during transit. Basically it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  • Wrap each item inside the parcel individually;
  • Protect the contents with a strong container;
  • Seal the container with strong tape.

More posting and packaging advice can be found here. If sending a parcel abroad, we recommend reading our international packaging guide.

Please note, do not use black plastic wrapping; it cannot be processed through automated sorting machines and will result in delays to transit times.

Every care is taken to ensure your parcels are handled correctly, however your parcel is likely to travel many miles on moving vehicles and be passed through sorting machines, therefore internal protection and a strong box is mandatory in order to be covered for any damage on our services.

You can see a list of prohibited items here.

You can now print various sized labels when you have completed your booking with us. Whether you opt to print on sticky labels or pop your labels in a waterproof docket - we've got lots of options to print the right sized labels for your delivery.

Alternatively, you can now opt to have a ''label-less'' parcel delivery on any Domestic ServicePoint drop off (under 20kg) and some of our International services. We'll show you a 'Print in store' or 'Print at home' option if this service is available to you during your booking process. If you do opt to go ''label-less'' we'll simply email you a barcode. Show this to the shopkeeper in your chosen DHL Parcel UK ServicePoint. The shopkeeper will scan the barcode and then affix a sticky label to the outside of your parcel for you.

As standard all parcels delivered in the UK get £25 free contents cover and international parcels get up to £50 contents cover for free. If the value of your contents is more than what comes as standard, then we offer extended cover of up to £1000 for both domestic and international deliveries. This option can be selected when placing your booking.
