Customs when sending to Canada

When shipping to Canada, all parcels – except for documents – have to clear customs to enter the country, which means that they will be subject to duties, taxes and inspections.

Parcels worth less than $20 CAD will not have duties and taxes applied, whilst parcels worth between $20 and $2,500 will go through normal customs. Packages worth more than $2,500 will have to pass through formal clearance.

Collection & Delivery

Parcels being collected and delivered

Pick-up

We can collect across the UK and Canada, same day from most locations.

However, if your parcel is over 50kg, or larger than 180cm long, you will have to book the day before shipping. For large parcels or heavier goods, you will need to provide your courier with assistance loading or unloading the delivery.

If you're sending a pallet or an item requiring a tail lift or pallet truck, please contact our customer care team prior to collection.

Canada Delivery

With the exception of our timed delivery services, we deliver between 9am and 7pm on normal working days. If your first delivery attempt is unsuccessful, we make another two attempts before the parcel is returned to you.

Some of our partner couriers, such as UPS, may leave a parcel in a safe place without requiring a signature. If you need proof of delivery, please use the upgrade option 'Signature required' on our 'select service page'

Sending Gifts to Canada

Canada has a gift exemption of 60 Canadian Dollars, and if the parcel you're sending is more expensive than the gift exemption, only the difference is charged – so if your gift is worth $100 CAD, you'd only be charged duties and taxes for the $40 difference.

When sending gifts to Canada, make sure you enter an accurate description explaining what the gift is – rather than simply declaring 'Gift' write 'Gift Pokemon toy' for example.

Sending Personal
Effects to Canada

With shipping personal effects to Canada is far easier than negotiating luggage charges and baggage claims. When you're sending personal items, there are no duties and tax exemptions for non-Canadian residents, so some fees will be applied to shipments into Canada. However, if you are a Canadian sending personal goods to Canada, you may be eligible for an exemption.

If more than a year has passed since the goods have left Canada, then this form must be filled in when moving your personal effects to Canada.

If your parcels contain medicine, there will be further controls on their import controlled by 'Health Canada', which can be found in this document.

Sending food to Canada

Food is an amazing gift or a great way to pad out a gift package, because no matter where you are in the world, there's a delicious snack that you just can't get your hands on. So if your friends or family in Canada, have had enough bacon, poutine and maple syrup for a while and pine for the taste of home, why not send them some of their favourites from home?

In Canada, any parcels containing food are controlled by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and they require that some foods are shipped with extra paperwork attached.

The CFIA require that certain food imports to Canada that are sent from outside of the USA are sent with import permits and certificates of origin. Nuts, for example, have to be sent with extra documents in order to clear customs. You can request a permit from the CFIA if you wish to send food to Canada.

Packaging your Parcel

When sending a parcel to Canada from the UK, your package will be handled multiple times. To ensure that the contents of your package arrive in Canada in the same condition that they left you in, it's vital to properly protect them before you book your shipment.

When packing your goods, there are three things you need to keep in mind:

1. GET A STURDY BOX

Used boxes can hide weaknesses which could cause them to burst or collapse in transit, so we recommend using a new box whenever possible. If you're sending something heavier than 10kg then you should get a double-lined box for extra support.

Safely packaging a parcel for international shipping

2. PACK THE CONTENTS

Make sure everything you're sending is individually wrapped. Put a layer of packing peanuts or bubble wrap, on the bottom of the box, then place items on it. Ensure at least 6cm between items and the inside walls of the box, fill gaps with packing material. Nothing should move when you shake the box.

3. SEAL IT UP

Use proper packing tape and wrap three times round your box in a Union Jack flag pattern, ensuring all joins and corners are covered. Ensure your shipping labels are the only ones securely stuck to the box, as leaving old ones on could lead to your parcel getting lost in transit.
