Things To Consider When Shipping To The UK

If you're shipping to UK, there are - as with all other countries - restrictions on certain items including:

  • Flick and gravity knives
  • Illicit drugs
  • Counterfeit goods
  • Indecent or obscene material 

The Government has also imposed bans on some items but introduced licences and permits to allow shipping to UK. They include:

  • Realistic imitation firearms
  • Live animals
  • Specific radio transmitters
  • Rough diamonds

Sending Food

We would advise against packing or sending any food products. If food is packed and needs to be removed from your boxes your shipping will incur additional charges and the items may have to be removed. Customs may even block the entire consignment which would then be returned to you for an additional charge. Our advice is to buy the food at your chosen destination to avoid all risk! Here's a list of the sort of items we're referring to:

  • Any dairy products 
  • Live plants (including potted, bare rooted, roots and bulbs)
  • Seeds and nuts (including cereal grains, dried seeds like poppy seeds, popping corn and pine cones - including those in decorations!)
  • Uncanned meat products (from any animal, including preserved or dried meats)

Need to send more than just some boxes?

Just to let you know, EU is covered by our excellent MoveCube® service. The MoveCube® is a large container inside a trailer which can move the contents of a two-bedroom flat. It's a very simple process whereby we drop the MoveCube® off at your door, you load it up with boxes and we return to collect it again to take to your chosen destination. Easy.
