Shipments delivered via Rapid Express Saver will not necessarily be delivered to the addressee personally. The Carrier may deliver a package to the addressee shown on the barcode label or to any other person appearing to have authority to accept delivery of the package on the addressee's behalf (such as persons at the same premises as the addressee or neighbours of the addressee). When shipping to residential address, if the drop off location is in a 'safe' area, then the courier driver will leave the parcel at your doorstep.
When sending personal effects, the form CF3299 should be filled out and included with invoices to help with clearance.
Medical devices, drugs, etc. must comply with FDA (Food and Drug Administration) regulations and submit prior notice electronically at: www.fda.gov
Before sending your parcel to United States, please make sure that none of the items in your parcels contravene the restrictions imposed by customs at destination.

After you have paid for a shipping service to Usa, 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 Usa 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.
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:
When you book a shipping service to Usa, 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.

You've just got back from the holiday of a lifetime touring the United States and you'd like to say a big thank you to all the people who helped make it possible - friends who put you up for the night, perfect strangers who stepped in and helped out when you lost your wallet or the owner of a small hotel who went way beyond the call of duty to make sure that your stay there was as special as possible. You could just update your Facebook status or tweet your gratitude, but you know that nothing makes plain exactly how grateful you are quite like a parcel handed over in person. So, if you want to say thank you by sending a gift to the USA, a parcel delivery to Las Vegas or a package delivery to Washington, or need something special shipping to Atlanta, then RapidParcel.com is the perfect place to start looking.
Let's just say, then, that your old school friend who now works out in Atlanta gave you free board and lodging for the week and you've decided to make a parcel delivery to Atlanta with some souvenirs from his home town to say thank you. It may be the first time that you've organised shipping to Atlanta, or anywhere overseas, and so you're slightly less than fully confident about how to go about arranging it. That's why our courier comparison website is the best place to come to. We've already done perhaps the most difficult bit; we've selected the very best couriers available to handle your Atlanta parcel delivery so that you don't have to go to the effort of comparing and contrasting countless companies before finally picking one that you may or may not be able to trust with your Atlanta package delivery. We've worked with these couriers for years, so we know for a fact that your Atlanta shipping will be handled with the level of care and professionalism you'd expect. Having chosen the very best couriers, we then negotiate the very best rates, again removing what would otherwise be a difficult and time-consuming task on your part - there's no need to haggle, because we've done it, and as a result you'll be paying a price for your package delivery to Atlanta that you won't be able to match anywhere else. Our website utilises the latest in modern technology to keep the act of booking an Atlanta package delivery as simple as it can possibly be - no long and complicated forms to fill in, just a few simple online pages, which reduce the whole booking process to a logical step-by-step procedure.
Choose your courier, pick from the options available such as economy delivery, shipment protection or many other extras and then send your thank you on its way in the form of a parcel delivery to Atlanta that you know is going to make somebody's day.
