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.

Documents Needed

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.


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 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.

At RapidParcel.com we cater equally for large-scale corporate customers and individuals making a single Seattle parcel delivery. In both cases we aim to offer enough choice for any customer to tailor our service to meet their own unique needs. Where an individual organising a parcel delivery to Seattle for the first time is concerned, we feel it's vital to make the service as easy to understand and simple to use as possible. This, along with our policy of working with only the very best and most trusted courier companies, means that anyone can send a Seattle package delivery quickly, without fuss and with total peace of mind. For corporate customers, we offer particular policies and services that we feel meet the needs of busy businesses. These include a bulk upload feature for multiple Seattle shipping, dedicated personal support and special business rates, all of which add up to a package that means we're the best place to come to arrange your corporate shipping to Seattle.

Famous throughout the world as the birthplace of legendary rock star Jimi Hendrix, and the setting for the hit sit-com Frasier, Seattle is the furthest north major US city and has its economy driven, in large part, by the presence of a major seaport and the large amount of shipping that passes through this port annually. Six of the Fortune 500 leading companies are situated in Seattle, amongst them the likes of Amazon and Starbucks. As well as boasting the presence of these larger, well-established companies, Seattle is also known as a centre for businesses starting up in the green building and clean technology sectors.

There are very many reasons, then, why a business might wish to make a Seattle package delivery, or, indeed, do so on a repeat and multiple basis. It may be that you work with American partners who need to get hold of hard copies of invoices, or your Seattle shipping may take the form of product samples aimed at tempting a new lead into giving you access to that all-important North American market. Whatever it is that you need shipping to Seattle, you'll want to know that you're working with a company that understands the corporate world.

Not only does RapidParcel.com offer a choice between world-leading couriers when it comes to deciding who should handle your package delivery to Seattle, but we do so having negotiated the best deals on the market, handling shipping to Seattle at prices that wouldn't be matched even if you went directly to the couriers. For corporate customers we go a step further and offer a corporate credit facility which, subject to status, offers the financial backing of a large, well-established company and, with it, extra peace of mind in these tough economic times. So, whether your business needs to make a Seattle parcel delivery or needs to ship to anywhere in the United States, such as making a parcel delivery to Baltimore or a package delivery to Memphis, don't do a thing until you visit RapidParcel.com.
