Customs Requirements are Often Complex

Common customs problems often arise when people fail to fill in the correct documentation for their international deliveries. Each country has different requirements, so when you send an item to a country you will first have to find out whether there are any restrictions that could affect your delivery.

At PACK & SEND, we can help speed your item to its destination without experiencing any problems by providing advice and information on common customs issues before we send your package.

Common Customs Problems when Sending Items Abroad

The possible reasons why your delivery might encounter common customs problems when you send it to another country are numerous. However, some of the most common problems include:

  • Making mistakes on the paperwork
  • Trying to send banned items
  • Sending items without the correct documentation
  • Including the wrong labels and certificates

There are sometimes unexpected reasons why your deliveries can get held up, which you would never know unless you carried out detailed research. For example:

  • You cannot send a pair of matching shoes to Mexico
  • You are not allowed to send dental products to Algeria
  • Need a licence to send a tent to Jordan
  • You cannot send send plastic flowers to Nigeria

We can help you to prepare customs paperwork and become aware of any restrictions, licence requirements and duties in your destination so that you can send your items without experiencing any problems.
