Belgium and the UK share a long and friendly history and the royal families of each nation are closely related; as such Queen Elizabeth II has made four royal state visits to Belgium during her reign. Today, there are roughly 30,000 UK citizens living in Belgium and exactly the same for Belgian citizens living in the UK. For this reason, parcel delivery from Belgium to the UK is incredibly popular and Parcel Broker offers a wide range of different services to suit all needs.

Such items include, but are not limited to, explosives, corrosive products, counterfeit goods and alcohol above 70% ABV. Understandably, the list of prohibited and restricted goods can be long and possibly confusing, so here is a guide produced by The Post Office which clearly lays out what you can and can’t send.
If you have a product you wish to send from Belgium and you’re not sure if it will be allowed across the UK border, then it is best to first contact the UK customs office before ordering with us.
