Germany is, by a distance, the UK’s biggest trading partner in Europe, accounting for 9.2% of our country’s global exports of goods and services and 12.2% of our global imports. As such, postal and freight infrastructure between the two nations is highly developed, with thousands of pallets sent between them each day.
As one of the economic powerhouses of Europe, Germany may be somewhere you or your business need to ship pallets to. ParcelBroker will help you do this; we offer low rates from our network of couriers to deliver your pallets quickly and with minimum fuss.

How to prepare the pallet for shipping to Germany?
Ensure that your goods do not overhang the edge of the pallet base. This can lead to damage which will not be covered, as well as additional charges for more delivery space.
Palletised goods must be made fast with shrink wrapping, ratchet straps, rope or banding. The pallet may be re-loaded up to 8 times during delivery, and must be stable; take care to avoid packing a top-heavy pallet.
Ensure that your goods are given sufficient protection against damage by wrapping them in bubble wrap, cardboard, polystyrene, or other packaging materials.
Pallets may be stacked to maximise usage of space in delivery vehicles. If this is not appropriate for your goods, ensure that this information is displayed on the outside of the pallet.
Engine parts and gearboxes must be shipped through our dedicated delivery service - call us on 0871 288 5741 for a quote.

Do I need to deal with customs when shipping a pallet from the UK to Germany?
As Germany and the UK are EU member states, they both benefit from the European Single Market meaning there are no customs delays or charges to worry about. However, Britain is set to leave the EU soon which may affect customs matters. ParcelBroker is working hard to keep up to date and will let you know of any changes as and when they occur.
Can I send an engine or gearbox to Germany?
Yes, but only on a special service dedicated for these types of goods. These goods cannot be shipped via the pallet services displayed on our website. To get a quote, please contact our team on 0871 288 5741 or email us via the contact page on our website.
Can you order a pallet delivery to be collected at the weekend?
