What items are prohibited to send to the USA?

Within America, as a result of the 50 states, there are lots of different items which are prohibited to be sent to the USA. Some things can be sent to some states but are banned in other states. Alcohol is one example of this, lots of alcohols are banned in all states but can be shipped to other states. A full list of banned items can be seen here – https://www.cbp.gov/travel/us-citizens/know-before-you-go/prohibited-and-restricted-items. Whilst these goods are prohibited for import, solutions can be found in some circumstances, contact your local service centre for more information.

What ways are there to get an item sent to the USA?

For shipments to the USA PACK & SEND offer both sea and freight services. More information on these services can be found here – https://www.packsend.co.uk/business-solutions/international-freight-and-shipping/.

How long will my things take to reach the USA?

Items going to the USA can take varying amounts of time to reach their destination. We can offer estimates for delivery time but these are always subject to change due to customs clearance. By air we expect items to arrive in 3-5 days. By sea, we would expect items to arrive in 8-10 weeks.
