Every month, lots of our customers send gifts to loved ones, items they’ve sold online and business documents across the pond. Whatever your reason for sending a parcel to America, we can help you get it there quickly and safely with transit times starting from just 2-3 days.

Thinking of sending a parcel to the USA, but want to know how much it will cost you? In this guide, we show some of the most popular items which are sent to the USA and how much it costs to send each one. Take a look to see if your item appears on our list and if it doesn’t, you are sure to find something which is a similar size and weight to give you a rough idea.





British expats living in the USA often find themselves craving a taste of home. It’s probably not surprising then that one of the most popular items to send to the USA is food. Every day chocolate, biscuits, teabags and even tins of baked beans are sent through our network to America.

When sending food, always make sure it is in its original packaging and unopened. A full list of ingredients should be displayed on the label and it must have a shelf life of over 6 months. Always ensure you check our list of prohibited items before booking to make sure it is permitted through our network.

More and more Americans are turning to the internet to source classic or rare car parts which aren’t easily available in the US. As a result, we’ve seen an increase in the number of car and motorcycle parts sent from the UK to the USA.

If you’re selling car parts online, it’s worth factoring in postage costs when setting your price. Some car parts can be big and heavy which means it costs more to send but if the part isn’t available in America, customers will be willing to pay more for postage

Our guide on sending car parts will help you to package the part securely to ensure it reaches your recipient safely.

Documents and paperwork


Whilst a lot of documents can be electronically signed and sent online, you sometimes still need to send documents through the post. For instance, if you are an American expat living in the UK you will still need to file your US tax returns every year with the IRS.

When you send documents with us, we provide proof of sending and full tracking to the recipient’s door so you can rest assured that it has arrived at the destination safely. However, you cannot send any documents which are on our prohibited items list like a passport or birth certificate.

This article should be used as a guide only. For the most accurate price to send your parcel to the USA, you should always use our Quick Quote and accurately weigh and measure your parcel. Failure to declare the actual size and weight of your parcel means you parcel could be held or returned back to you – incurring additional fees.

Our prices start from £38.59 and all our deliveries come with £50 contents cover and full online tracking as standard. You can also opt to cover the value of your parcel up to £1000 to the USA if the value of your parcel is more than the standard cover we offer.

Duties and Taxes

Duties and taxes are due on parcels sent outside the UK. When your parcel arrives in its destination country, your recipient will receive a bill for the duties and taxes which are due. These are calculated by customs officials in the destination country based on the description of goods, value of goods and origin of goods.

It is important to note that as the sender, you are ultimately liable for duties and taxes and will be billed should the recipient refuse the package or refuse to pay.
