Shipping from the UK to Canada

Postage to Canada from the UK requires:

  • Logistical flexibility
  • Cost efficient and reliable delivery methods

These areas are the ones where Parcelabc excels in. Single individuals will struggle to find ways to make and find deliveries on their own. We are motivated to help you find the best shipping solution for your parcel. Whether you choose the quickest route or the cheapest option, shipping from the UK to Canada will be done with high-quality and in a professional way.

Remember that according to Canadian postage and import regulations, any UK originated shipments and parcels cannot contain:

  • Weapons, arms or ammunition of any sorts and kinds. Replica munitions are also non-mailable.
  • Perishable items –Canada Post classifies fish, game, meat, fruit and vegetables as perishable items. In other words, things (foods) that might go bad.
  • Medical/Biological materials
  • Drugs or any controlled substances
  • Alcoholic beverages

In general, following the UPU guidelines or by simply contacting the Canadian Embassy or Parcelabc, you can find out whether your items are on the forbidden or restricted list, or not.

Before you ship a package from the United Kingdom to Canada, make sure that you familiarize yourself with the basic rules and guidelines of Canada’s import regulations. For your comfort, we have listed them here, but for first-hand information, you can visit their website:

Regarding shipments, Canada’s postage experts recommend using a clean container and reliable packaging materials. Since Canada is so unfathomably big and vast, the parcels travel a long way and thus need to be sturdy and strong. Parcelabc would like to add that you can also choose the best way to ship your package on our website. By choosing a reliable shipping service to Canada you ensure yourselves with a quick and cheap delivery to the country in North America. Fill in the quote to get suggestions for carriers and compare the prices and other details with postage to Canada from the UK in mind.

Upon arrival, shipments are inspected by customs which can either clear or hold-up the package if there are suspicions regarding its contents or documentation. If you are sending something precious which you don’t want to get opened pre-delivery, make sure that the postage documents are accurate and Canadian customs and post officers have no reason to open up the parcel. Be careful, follow the guidelines we outline here and contact our team if any questions begin to bother you.

If the parcel is not cleared it is time for a second, more thorough check. In this stage, the packets are usually opened and their contents are analysed. If it is proven that the packet is safe, it returns to the postal route and if not, further analysis awaits to determine violations. One of the things to really avoid - is sending items with intent of hiding a commercial purpose or weapons/dangerous materials. Other than that, we trust that your common sense will be in play before shipment.

Once the package gets cleared, the package is in the hands of carriers and they will handle your parcel on the final stretches of its journey. Shipping from the UK to Canada relies on your decision making.
