USA Customs Information
All imports to USA from the UK are subject to customs clearance. While US customs are known for being strict, the majority of commercial and personal shipments pass through with no problem provided that your parcel is accompanied by all of the appropriate documentation, that you ensure in advance that you do not send any hazardous or prohibited items and that you comply with any restrictions imposed by the US Customs and Border Protection Authority. If you’re based in the States and arranging a delivery through a UK contact, it’s therefore important that your collection point in the UK has a copy of all of the necessary documentation to ensure a smooth delivery. As part of our booking process, we produce all of the documentation you’ll need, including your shipping labels and a customs invoice detailing the contents and value of your parcel(s). If you are booking a delivery as a receiver rather than the UK collection point, be sure to ensure that you forward all of the documentation to your UK-based shipper before collection.
