Importing to the UK from China: Customs Information

As your shipment will be imported to the UK from a non-EU country, it is important to be aware that your goods will be subject to customs clearance checks. This is a mandatory process your shipment will go through before being delivered within the UK. We understand at Transglobal Express that you may not be familiar with this process, so we make sure that you are fully prepared and equipped with the appropriate documentation you will need.

Your shipment will need to be accompanied by a customs invoice. This is simply a document outlining the contents of your shipment, with a value as well. You will need to ensure that the collection point in China has this documentation, along with the shipping labels, printed and ready with the parcel(s) for when the collection takes place - the driver will take this documentation with the shipment upon collection. While some people prefer to use their own customs invoice, we automatically generate this for you once your booking with us is complete.

China to the UK: Transit Times

Despite being over 4,800 miles from China, you will find that the transit times to import to the UK from the populous country are surprisingly quick. Transit times from the USA to the UK can vary, depending on which service you choose. For example, an express import service, such as our TG Express Worldwide service, estimates the transit time being as little as 2 working days, with a more economical service taking longer at around 8 working days. While we can provide estimates of transit times like this, we also recommend to refer to our Transit Time calculator tool to gain a more accurate delivery time frame. Our Transit Time calculator will use the post code of your collection point in China and your UK delivery post code to give you a more specific delivery time.
