Send a Parcel To France

Send a Parcel to France with ParcelBroker

France is one of the most popular shipping destinations from the UK, with Brits sending a huge number of parcels over the Channel every year.

The attraction of great food, a beautiful country and easy access puts France at the top of the list for UK holidaymakers. In fact, many Brits have chosen to live in France; recent estimates put the number of expats living in France at just under 200,000. Small wonder, then, that France is a popular destination for UK parcels.

Whether you’re doing business with a French importer or you’re completing the purchase of a holiday home in Normandy, ParcelBroker will ensure that your packages, pallets and documents get where they need to go on time. eCommerce businesses can also streamline French parcel delivery with ParcelBroker’s WooCommerce plugin, saving even more time.

What are the import restrictions?

Restrictions on sending items to France are not much different from those within the UK. You won’t necessarily be stopped from sending these items, but you will need to check with HMRC before doing so. Restrictions are in place on products such as meat, vegetables, medication, fertilisers, and many other items.You should also be aware of ParcelBroker’s prohibited items, to ensure that you’re not sending any materials that aren’t permitted by our shipping policy.

What items are prohibited from shipping to France?

Many of the same prohibitions that exist in the UK are also implemented by La Poste, France’s mail carrier. However, there are some which might catch you out. Be sure to check HMRC guidelines before you send any packages to France. Here are just a few examples of items you cannot send to France:

  • Trimmings with gold thread
  • Resinous timber covered wholly or partly with bark
  • Currency legally in circulation in France

ParcelBroker also places its own restrictions on what you can send. Be sure to check our prohibited items list to ensure your items fall within our regulations.
