Before you ship a package from the United Kingdom to South Africa, make sure you understand the responsibilities that we mention on our website to avoid any possible delays and hold-ups in customs.

Regarding UK originated parcels, South Africa’s postage experts suggest using a clean container, providing the right set of documentation, maybe even a few excess document copies and choosing your packaging materials wisely. Since the travel distance is so huge, you need to make all of the necessary steps in order to protect your parcel.

Parcelabc would like to add that on our website you can get all of the necessary information about how to ship to South Africa and how much it is going to cost you. Fill in the quote to get suggestions for shipments and compare the prices between the services of various couriers and postal companies.

Upon arrival, shipments are inspected by customs office. If you are sending something expensive or valuable, please make sure that the documents are accurate, and the customs officers have no reason to open up the parcel.
