As a country with huge potential which has enjoyed plenty of growth in recent years, Mexico is an increasingly important market for UK companies wishing to expand their operations. With the Mexican economy predicted to continue to grow to become one of the world's largest, the amount of parcels and post flying between the country and the UK is becoming increasingly large.

Do I need to deal with customs while sending a parcel to Mexico?
Unlike shipping to the EU, parcels being sent to Mexico will require customs checks. While the majority of parcels are not checked, particularly large or valuable packages could be inspected for any contraband.
Thankfully, most of the operators listed on our website offer full tracking and extended liability with their services. This means your package will be covered by the delivery company up to a certain value. This will help keep your mind at ease if you're sending anything valuable or personal.
How should I address my parcel for delivery to Mexico?
There are a few differences to be aware of when addressing packages to Mexico to make sure your parcel arrives to the correct address. The name goes first as in the UK, but after that there are some differences to make sure you get right. Firstly, the building number will typically come after the street name, followed by the floor number and finally the room number if applicable. Secondly, when sending to large cities, you'll need to include the neighbourhood - this comes before the city, or 'colonia'. Lastly, you need to add the postal code, major city and state.
How much does it cost to send a package to Mexico?
For a small parcel, prices are available from just £32.59 - including extended liability in case anything goes wrong. If you're a business or a regular sender, you can find even better deals, too - just give us a call or register and find out how we can help you get the best deal possible.
What items can I send to Mexico?
As well as the usuals such as explosives, weapons and dangerous chemicals, it is also prohibited to send alcoholic beverages, coffee, animal products and other items you may not expect - even playing cards. You can contact us or consult with the provider you decide to choose for an exhaustive list.
