As the largest English-speaking country in the world, it’s no surprise thousands of parcels are delivered to the United States from the UK each day.

Whether you’re posting for business or personal reasons; to New York, Los Angeles or Washington, we can cater for all your UK to US shipping needs.

Packaging a parcel to ship to America: what you need to know
As with all overseas shipping, parcels sent to the USA must be securely packaged. Although the utmost care is taken to protect your goods, we’d always recommend wrapping the contents of your parcel in protective packaging such as bubble wrap to prevent damage.
Using a sturdy outer container is also advisable. Complete the wrapping of your parcel with sturdy adhesive tape in order to prevent it opening in transit.
We will provide you with a printable label, which must be securely affixed to the front of your package, with the address completely visible. For more advice on wrapping your parcel and label placement, please see our guide to parcel packaging.
USA customs restrictions
As a destination outside of the E.U., parcels sent to the United States of America are subject to duties and taxes. Customs will hold all goods and prevent delivery until the necessary payment is made.
The USA also operates strict regulations on what goods can be imported into the country. Prohibited/restricted items include:
- Designer items, such as clothing, shoes or accessories
- Real animal fur
- Food and beverages
Before planning a delivery to the USA with Impact Express, please ensure your parcel does not contain any restricted goods. US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will be able to provide a complete list of prohibited items.
