How long will it take?

ipostparcels provides cheap and convenient door to door delivery from the UK to Germany. 

Whether you choose to have your parcels collected from your home or work address in the UK, you can usually expect delivery of your parcels within 3 days from collection, depending on the service you choose.

For a lower price, select the economy route, which should arrive in 2-3 days and for a faster delivery, take the express service of 1-2 days.

We make every effort to deliver your items within these timelines but sometimes it can take longer for your parcel to arrive to more remote and rural locations.

Jan 1, 6 / Mar 30/ Apr 2 / May 1, 10, 21, 31 / Aug 8, 15 / Oct 3, 31 / Nov 21 / Dec 25, 26

Do I need to deal with German customs?

It’s your responsibility to ensure your parcel’s contents are allowed into Germany - failing to do so may result in extra charges, the parcel being returned or possibly even destroyed. Avoid this by making sure you don’t send anything on the restricted or prohibited list. You should also take care to package the parcel carefully.

If this sounds like hard work, don’t worry, we’ll help automatically generate any documents for you from the information you provide on the booking form.

More information on shipments into Germany from within the EU is available on the Central Customs Authority website.

HM Revenue & Customs has more information on tax and customs considerations for Germany.

What items can’t I send to Germany?

As with all deliveries outside the UK, please ensure that your parcel contents are allowed into Germany.

We advise our customers take a look at the current restrictions on shipments on the German Customs website to ensure compliance with the items that can’t be sent. Some examples of items you can’t post include:


Restricted and Prohibited Goods


Illegal and dangerous


Foods of animal origin

Drugs / Medications


Foods of non-animal origin


Rough diamonds

Unsafe foods

Weapons and Explosives

Products from endangered species


Please be aware that we also have our own prohibited items list, in addition to country-specific restrictions.

How to package parcels to Germany

Although Germany doesn’t seem far from the UK, we still advise you take care with packaging; your parcel will travel through a number of depots with automated sorting machines so be sure to pack your items well and use cushioning material inside your parcel to help protect the contents from damage.

We’ll transport parcels up to 25kg in weight, 80x80x80cm max in size. We recommend you use a strong and sturdy outer box when sending your package and don’t overfill it, regardless of the dimensions of your parcel. For further advice, take a look at our handy international packaging guide for tips.

How safe will my parcel be?

We at ipostparcels pride ourselves on our courier services from booking and collection through to delivery and wouldn’t want you to worry about your package arriving safely - it’s in good hands. In fact, you will have complete visibility of your parcel on its journey, for free, as standard. 

As well as our online tracking service, we provide free £50 extended cover on your items, with the option to upgrade to extra cover should you wish.
