Our customer-focused approach means that any form of international postage, from Germany to China, is streamlined and cheaper than ever. Even our UK postage services are designed with you in mind! That's because we understand how important flexibility is, so you can either send your items directly to the recipient's door, or to a convenient pick-up point near them if they're often out of their home. Either option will be heavily discounted, due to our partner status with several of the worlds largest delivery companies.
In most cases, free cover is even provided for the deliveries, which helps with that peace of mind everyone should have when sending items internationally.
The impact of Brexit on deliveries to Germany
As of January 1st 2021, there are new rules for shipping from the UK to countries within the European Union. When sending commercial items to Germany from the UK, customers may need to fill in a commercial invoice.
If the parcel you are sending is a gift, you may need to fill in a Pro-forma invoice instead. If you've ever shipped to countries outside Europe you'll be familiar with this process, although we encourage everyone to contact us if they have any concerns or questions.
