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.

Picture the situation: you've just spent a couple of weeks holidaying in the UK - either it was a special trip to see family friends, or the last leg of a world tour. It's the last day of your holiday and you're busy packing when the dreadful truth begins to dawn - you've simply bought too many souvenirs. It's easily done, of course, a commemorative tea towel here, a local delicacy there, perhaps gifts for the folks back in Honolulu. In years gone by this would have been a full-blown disaster. The suitcase won't shut, you've filled every pocket, your hand luggage is already teetering close to the edge of going overweight and costing you money, and still the room's littered with extra bits and pieces. Once, the only realistic option would have been to have left lots of stuff behind, since shipping to Honolulu would have been both prohibitively expensive and horribly time consuming.
