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.

Documents Needed

After you have paid for a shipping service to Germany, 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 Germany 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 Germany, 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.

At RapidParcel.com we like to think there are many reasons why you’ll choose to use us for your shipping to Bonn and why, having done so once, you’ll be happy to return to us time after time. We know you’ll expect your package to be handled with care, arranged with ease and charged at a rate that provides value for money. There will be times, however, when the overriding priority for your Bonn parcel delivery will be making sure that it arrives as quickly as possible, and those too are the times when you’ll want to turn to RapidParcel.com.

Bonn was the capital city of West Germany up until 1990 and of the united Germany for a further nine years and, although many of the nation’s government institutions shifted to Berlin when that city was renamed the capital in 1999, it is still a key centre for both politics and general administration. On top of this, Bonn is home to the corporate headquarters of DHL as well as T-Mobile and many other telecommunications companies, and it has secured its place as a leading international conference, meeting and convention venue.

Couriers as and when you need them

So it’s easy to see why, no matter what line of business you’re in, it might be vitally important to be able to source reliable Bonn shipping from a service where it can be simply arranged well in advance of the delivery date. As already stated, Bonn is one of the world’s leading conference venues and, as such, it may be necessary for you to travel there in person, perhaps to meet with clients and seal a deal face to face, or handle a one-on-one presentation of your latest product because only you know how to demonstrate it to its best advantage. No matter how well organised a business trip may be, there may be times when you arrive at your destination only to find that you’ve left something vital behind at head office – a component you wanted to demonstrate is still back in the warehouse or a contract that needs to be signed is still on your desk. At times like that you’ll need a Bonn package delivery service which can get it to you as soon as possible.

In the past, organising a Bonn parcel delivery at such short notice, when you’re not even in the country, would have been both difficult and costly but, thanks to RapidParcel.com, it couldn’t be simpler. One quick call back to the office and they can access our website and follow the simple step-by-step process to get whatever it is that you need shipping to Bonn safely on its way. What’s more, you’ll still only pay the excellent rate we’ve negotiated on your behalf, whether it’s for a package delivery to Bonn, a package delivery to Hannover or a Bremen parcel delivery.

Of course you could always log on to our site from where you are or use our Mobisite on your smartphone to book a carrier to collect from your home or offices in the UK and deliver your prized package to you in Bonn in no time flat. The table below gives you an idea of our rates, but for the actual cost of your courier delivery all you have to do is to complete the Rapid Quote form on the Home page of our site.
