Customs in the Canary Islands

Because the Canary Islands are part of the EU, shipments there are subject to the free movement of goods and people, which means that if you are sending a package from within the EU, you won’t have to pay duties or taxes. For parcels that originate outside the EU, there is an exemption for shipments worth less than €150, but parcels worth more will have fees applied during customs clearance.

In order to make sure that you pay the proper fees, be sure to fully declare the nature and value of the goods that you’re sending. If you do not, there may be delays or extra charges while your goods clear customs.

Collection & Delivery

Collection of your package

Courier Collection

A journey of 1,000 miles starts with a single step, and when it comes to shipping internationally, that first step is getting your package out your front door. We can pick-up your parcel on the same day you book, unless you are shipping a large, heavy package. If that’s the case, just let us know a day in advance.

We also offer convenient drop-off locations at retailers across the UK, a really convenient option if you don’t want to have to wait home all day.

Delivery of your parcel

Canary Islands Delivery

Deliveries are attempted between 9am and 7pm on normal working days – we don’t deliver on public holidays and weekends. We make 3 delivery attempts as standard on most services, but some economy services only make 1 delivery attempt.

If you can’t spend the day at home waiting for a parcel, or need your package to arrive before a certain time of day, you can choose to purchase one of our timed delivery services, which allow you to select a smaller window in which your parcel will be delivered.

You’ll be able to see every stop that it takes during the journey, so you can see just what it takes to ship a parcel across the world.

For gifts sent to the Canary Islands from outside the EU, there is an exemption for gifts worth less than €45 – gifts worth more than this may still be eligible for the low value exemption of €150.

To take advantage of this gift exemption, you must make it clear in your paperwork that your goods are being sent as a gift. You should also fully declare the nature and value of your goods.

Our couriers might not be competing in World’s Strongest Man any time soon, but we can still carry the biggest, heaviest parcels all around the globe.

We’ll do all the heavy lifting for you; all you need to do is book a day in advance and let us know if you have any special requirements for your shipment. You’ll also need to be on hand when your courier arrives to collect your package, just in case they need a hand.

Whether you’re sending bulky items of furniture by road freight via haulier, or an urgent commercial pallet of products by air freight, our specialist freight services can support your needs, both door-to-door and port-to-port.

Sending food to Canary Islands

When eating the delicious food on offer in the Canaries finally loses its lustre, makes it easy to search distant shores for something tasty. It’s just the same if you’d like to share your favourite treats with family or friends who live elsewhere; we can’t ship your homemade Conejo en salmorejo, but as long as it’s store bought, we make it simple.

All you need to do is keep the rules below in mind, and ship your goods as normal.

What you can send

Non-perishable foods

  • a. Store bought foods with a best before date over 6 months away.
  • b. Items must be in the original manufacturers packaging and unopened.
  • c. The food lable needs to list all the ingredients.
  • d. The best before date must be displayed on the packaging
  • e. Examples of pershable foods:
    Crisp and savory foods, Chocolates and candy, Canned foods, Herbs and Spices in sealed containers, tea bags, Jams and other preserves

What you cannot send

perishable foods

  • a. Foods with a shelf life of less than 6 months.
  • b. Homemade foods or any foods not in the original manufactures packaging.
  • c. Foods that can spoil in transit.
  • d. Food in packaging that have been opened.
  • e. Food that does not contain a food label listing the ingredients.

Packaging your Parcel

When you ship a package around the world, there’s always the risk of taking a bump or knock. To make sure that their packages are safe, some companies drop their packages from 10 feet in the air – you want your box to be able to take that much of a drop.


The very first line of defence for your goods is the box. A knight in cardboard armour might not do much, but a double corrugated box makes a big difference. Use a new box if possible; an old box may burst or be crushed in transit.

Safely packaging a parcel for international shipping


Each of your goods should be wrapped individually. Once they are safely wrapped, place them in your box and surround them with packaging materials. No part of your goods should be touching the walls of your box, and they should not move.


Proper packing tape can help protect your box’s weakest points. Protect the corners and seals of your box by wrapping three times around your package in a union flag pattern. Place your labels on your box so that all information is clearly visible.

That depends on the value. If you are sending from within the EU, you will not have to pay duties or taxes. For shipments from outside the EU, fees will not be applied to gifts worth less than €45 – gift shipments worth more than this will be treated as a normal package.

Is there anything I’m not allowed to send to Canary Islands?

You can’t send certain kinds of battery, for example, as they risk exploding in transit. You can see a full list of banned items on ’s restricted goods list.
