Things needs to notice before shipping your parcel from HK to the UK
1. For common items, such as clothes, hats and documents, it is faster to ship to the UK via Aramex or UPS. The calculation of freight for international express is based on the larger one of the volumetric weight and the actual weight. Volume weight is calculated as length * width * height / 5000.
2. No illegal drugs can be sent. Offensive weapons like knives, guns, sprays like pepper sprays and styling sprays, endangered animals and plants, precious metals such as diamonds and gold, obscene items and most meat and dairy products can not be sent.
3. Items such as chemicals, food, medicines and items including batteries usually require a designated courier company to be shipped to the UK. Therefore, it is recommended that you contact Fulffy customer service team for a suggestion before sending these items. In addition, it is recommended that you reserve more time, because the completion of the transportation and customs clearance procedures costs longer. If your consignment requires special inspections, such as magnetic inspections, special handling fees will be charged.
4. We do not recommend transporting fragile and valuable items. But if there is a real need, we recommend that you install reinforced packaging to reduce the chance of damage.
5. It is recommended to take out transportation insurance when transporting high-value items. Transportation insurance charges are charged according to the plans provided by individual courier companies (the amount of insurance must not exceed the actual value of the product). Please contact Fulffy customer service for more information about transportation insurance.
6. UK import taxes are composed of customs duties and value-added tax (VAT). As long as the value of the goods exceeds a certain value, you must pay tariffs. Product value, transportation costs, packaging costs, and freight insurance are all included. At the same time, VAT must be paid. The current ordinary value-added tax is 20%.
