Customs Advice

The importation of certain products into a country is restricted in order to protect the economy and safety of its citizens. The restrictions may be imposed by Customs or by any other agency which has regulatory authority.

We provide a shipping service only and Customs at the parcel's destination will determine whether any charges are payable on your package. All duties, taxes and/or quarantine fees applied are at the discretion of local customs or governmental organisations and are out of our control.

If the addressee refuses to pay duties/taxes, the parcel may be held, returned (if allowed by Customs) or destroyed, and additional costs may be incurred. As per Terms and Conditions, those charges will be billed to the sender.

Please note, no shipping costs are recoverable for parcels held or destroyed, even if shipping protection cover has been purchased.

Majority of parcels can be delivered door to door, once it has cleared customs at destination. However, some countries have a door to airport service only. In those countries, the recipients may have to present themselves to either Customs or the local courier's office to take possession of their consignment.

We advise you to verify independently, all Customs, Governmental and Quarantine regulations. These rules can and do frequently change without prior notice or recourse.

World Customs Organisation


Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI)

It is now a requirement that all exporters sending freight outside of the E.U must have an EORI number if they are VAT registered.

If you have any queries regarding the EORI application process then please visit the HMRC website.

Documents Needed

After you have paid for a shipping service to France, you will be redirected to a page where you can download and print out the relevant shipping labels, i.e

AWB (Courier Air Waybills - barcode) - Proforma or Commercial invoice - Address label.

The above documents are standard for any international shipment.

Please note, if additional documentation is required for the import of any particular item, it is the customer's responsibility to provide them at destination.


Goods travelling by 'Cargo' are subject to different restrictions to those travelling as carry-on luggage.

A shipment to France is deemed unacceptable if: it is classified as hazardous material, dangerous goods, prohibited or restricted articles by IATA (International Air Transport Association), ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) or other relevant organisation. Many items which appear harmless in everyday use can pose danger on air transport and are consequently forbidden for transport.

The following page displays a sampling of common prohibited and restricted goods.


Packing Advice

Your parcel must be boxed and well packaged. This will reduce the risk of damage to any item during transit or any associated automated distribution process.

Please be aware the item is not taken by hand from collection to destination and will visit many sorted facilities on its journey. For that reason, you need to protect the items to ensure they make it from A to B safely.

The following packaging guidelines are recommendations to assist you in packaging your shipment:


Shipment Protection

When you book a shipping service to France, you will be able to choose an appropriate level of cover for your shipment. We offer enhanced parcel protection for up to £2000 for a small additional fee.

If you do not purchase enhanced Shipment Protection, your shipment will be only covered to a maximum value of £50 as per the limited liability set out in our Terms & Conditions and subject to your parcel passing minimum packaging requirements.

Please note that the declared value for customs purposes is not related to the declared value selected for Shipment Protection. We encourage all customers to purchase shipment protection cover for loss or damage.

Your Nantes shipping needs are what we are here to service. So, if you are looking for a company to handle a package delivery to Nantes by combining reliability and ease of use with the most competitive possible pricing, then RapidParcel.com offers the courier comparison and booking website for you.

In this age of European integration and cheaper air travel, the option of holidaying on the continent is open to more and more people, whether it’s a month backpacking, a fortnight family holiday or a quick break in the sun. When you’ve finished your travelling and arrived back home feeling refreshed and invigorated, you may look back upon your trip and remember the people who helped make it so special. Perhaps you were put up by members of your family, given a bed for a couple of nights by an old university friend or met strangers who became firm friends thanks to the hospitality they showed to you. You’d like to show your appreciation and, while a thank you note, Twitter post or Facebook update might get the message across, it would mean so much more to actually send a gift. If you’re not used to shipping overseas, then organising a package delivery to Nantes may seem daunting, but our website makes things as simple as possible.

The best shipping deals in one place

We don’t merely list as many couriers as possible, we pick and choose our partners carefully, using only the best names around, names that you’ll recognise and know you can trust with your parcels. We’ve been relying upon them for over two decades and in that time we’ve built up working relationships that enable us to negotiate especially good deals on your behalf. They offer us the kind of prices for a parcel delivery to Nantes they don’t offer to anyone else, and then we pass these savings on to you.

In six easy steps you can choose your courier. Pick the deal that suits you best, whether it’s next-day delivery or the slower economy choice and then arrange your Nantes shipping. Even if you send more than one thank you gift – perhaps sending a parcel delivery to Toulouse or one to Bordeaux to thank those you stayed with there as well, you’ll be able to track each of your packages on a single page of our website in just the same way that our corporate customers making multiple bookings can.

If you still feel slightly wary about organising your Nantes shipping, you can take your gift to one of our parcel booking and drop-off points, situated conveniently in some major railway stations and airport terminals, where qualified and experienced staff will talk you through every stage of the process and answer any questions you may have.

Our aim is to offer you the most convenient way of booking one of our world-class carriers to deliver your packages. To achieve this we not only offer you same day UK delivery, next day European delivery, international and economy services, but we also offer pallet services, access to our select and book facility via your mobile phone, and even your very own customer support agent when you open a free account with us. When you want to say thank you, let RapidParcel.com pass on the message on your behalf.
