How to send clothing

Parcelpal’s guide to sending clothing 

Can I send clothes through parcel courier?  

Yes! Absolutely 

The most common items we have seen pass through our systems are clothing items. 


How much will it cost to send clothes?  

The price of your parcel will depend on the size, weight, and the destination. We send to over 220 countries and territories worldwide so don’t worry; we will have a service for you to choose from at a cost that is right for you.  

If, for example, your parcel weighs 1kg, 20cm long, 10cm wide, and 10 cm high prices start from just £4.92 inc VAT.  

But this is just an example quote, by choosing Parcelpal our prices start from as little as £2.29 exc VAT. So, make sure to get your free instant quote today! Find the quote calculator here.  

Is there next day delivery for clothes?  

Yes! We offer next day delivery from numerous parcel couriers. Hermes, DHL, DPD, and Parcelforce all offer next day delivery.  

Our other options for your parcel delivery include services that are delivered within 48 hours, such as Parcelforce 48. There is also the additional option with Parcelforce to choose a before 9am, before 10am, before 12 noon, and during the PM service for a timed delivery. 

Sending clothes within the UK  

There are no additional specific steps you need to take to send a clothing within the UK. All you need to do is attach the label you are sent within your order confirmation email to the parcel and it is ready to be sent.  

For larger/heavy items the courier service most suitable for you within the UK will be to send with Parcelforce. Parcelforce are able to accept parcels up to 30kg.  

Sending clothes abroad  

Here at Parcelpal we ship to over 220 countries and territories worldwide. So, we guarantee to have a service for you!  

Items sent to certain destinations inside the EU and all destinations outside of the EU require a customs declaration and parcels are subject to a customs duty fee. For information on this, read out Understanding Customs Declarations and Tax guide here.   

When filling out a customs declaration the most important thing to understand is that you must write the deion of the clothing as clearly as possible. Do not write “red top”. You must write something like “1 woman‘s burgundy V-neck cotton t shirt size 10 small hole under left sleeve”.
