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.

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 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.

Restrictions

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 offer a complete all round deal when it comes to sending a package delivery to Wuppertal. We combine our experience and scale of operations with an unrivalled commitment to embracing the latest that technology has to offer in the field of international shipping. Your parcel delivery to Wuppertal will be handled by a leading courier company with vast experience in the field and a reputation built up over years of making safe, successful deliveries, whilst the after sales service we offer encompasses the likes of comprehensive online tracking and a dedicated, regularly updated blog. There are times, however, when one factor takes precedence above all others, be it safe handling, collection convenience or shipment protection, and often this overriding concern where your shipping to Wuppertal is concerned is the one that is captured in our name. We're RapidParcel.com because we realise that sometimes, when you're making a Wuppertal package delivery, speed is of the essence.

The city of Wuppertal is situated in the west of Germany and the first thing many visitors notice is the profusion of green belt land. Over two thirds of the area consists of meadows, fields, gardens and woods, and many visitors are drawn by the likes of the Botanischer Garten Wuppertal, a landscaped botanical garden, and the Arboretum Burhgolz, 250 hectares of carefully maintained woodland. This preponderance of greenery, however, does not mean that Wuppertal doesn't have a thriving industrial past and present. On the contrary, it is a major national centre for industries such as rubber, printing equipment, chemicals, metallurgy and medicine. This last is particularly prominent, with the manufacturer Bayer being based in Wuppertal, thus making the city the place in which aspirin was invented.

Speedy delivery service across Germany

If your Wuppertal parcel delivery is of an urgent nature then RapidParcel.com is the best place to come. We offer next-day delivery throughout Europe and North America, so no matter whether your rapid delivery is needed in Wuppertal, Bochum or Dresden all you need to do is book through RapidParcel.com. What this means is that, if you have a blueprint that has to be on site before a new factory can be built, then a Wuppertal parcel delivery is the best choice to make. And if you have a loved one waiting keenly for a birthday gift to arrive in time for the big day itself, then shipping to Wuppertal with us will play a part in making their special day extra special.

Delivering excellence at an affordable price

You might expect to pay a lot for this kind of service but at RapidParcel.com we think that next-day delivery on Wuppertal shipping is the very least our customers can expect, and we've negotiated the best prices on your behalf, which simply won't be matched elsewhere.

Of course, if you decide that while important speed is secondary only to price, we have other services to offer as well. Booking a courier on one of our economy rates will mean that your delivery will take a little longer, in most cases just a day or two, but the savings could be significant.

Rapid, safe, value for money and reliable - only one of them is in our name, but they're all part of the service.
