Parcel packaging for shipping to Italy
We always recommend you package your parcel carefully when sending overseas. We will do our utmost to ensure your parcel is treated with care, but you should pay attention to both the internal and external packaging. Wrap and secure items with suitable padding, bubble wrap and tape internally, and then choose a strong outer packaging.
We will send you a label which you should complete and attach securely and visibly to the outside. We also recommend including a return address.
Italian customs restrictions
As always, when shipping overseas, you should check custom requirements and restrictions carefully before sending. Customs clearance is currently not needed for shipments from the UK to Italy, though there will still be security checks.
Amongst other things, Italian customs place restrictions on the some of the following goods:
- Certain liquids and foodstuffs
- Certain toiletries
- Antiques (works of art and fine art whose value exceeds 5,000 GBP)
See our full list of prohibited items, or contact Italian Customs.
As a result of Brexit, the UK’s status has changed. In order to avoid any delays or complications at customs, simply add all relevant customs information when setting up your online profile with us and we will handle the rest.
