Cheapest way to send a parcel to the USA

If you need a quick and reliable courier service to send a parcel to the USA from the UK, Overland Express has got you covered. With over 25 years of experience, you can trust us to get your delivery where it needs to be.

A cardboard box must be used for the outer packaging due to COVID-19 handling restrictions.

Partnering only with the biggest names in the logistics industry like UPS, FedEx and DHL, we're able to secure discounts that we share directly with our customers to reduce postage costs to the USA. Which makes us a cheaper, faster and more reliable alternative to Royal Mail.

Whether you're a small business that wants the cheapest way to send parcels to the USA from the UK or an individual sending gifts to friends and family, we have a variety of shipping options to suit your needs, including express delivery service for more urgent items. We offer a fully-tracked, door-to-door service for your packages so you can keep an eye on your items at all times. Our online booking system is designed to have your delivery arranged in a couple of clicks at your convenience and we can collect from your home or workplace. Our dedicated customer service team are on hand in the unlikely event that somethings goes wrong and we're able to offer insurance for your parcel up to £20,000.00 (exclusions apply) when shipping to the USA so you can send valuables without the stress.

We recommend you check US customs and import laws along with our own list of prohibited items to ensure your parcel arrives in the USA without any issues. For example, certain food and drinks, pharmaceuticals and seeds are restricted so please make sure before you book a delivery. Some items may be subject to customs duties and taxes that will not be included in your quote so it's worth checking the items you're sending on the U.S. Customs and borders website to avoid any surprise charges.

We can ship parcels from the UK to all over the USA, including New York, California, Texas, Los Angeles, Florida for individuals and businesses of any size. We can also import your goods from the USA to the UK. A commercial invoice is required to describe the contents and value of the goods being sent. We will produce this document for you based upon the information that you enter at the time of booking your delivery. This document consists of 3 pages, each of these pages should be printed out (printer required) and placed into an envelope and clearly marked 'Commercial Invoice' then attached to ONE of the parcels that you are shipping to the USA.

Customs information when sending to USA

As agreed in the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015, which was signed by President Barack Obama on February 24, the value of a shipment of items imported by one person on one day that can be imported duty-free and tax-free was boosted from $200.00 to $800.00 on March 10. The Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 featured a modification to the Tariff Act of 1930, which increased the de minimis exemption.

Shipments valued at $800.00 or less will be eligible for the de minimis exemption using the same procedures and limits as de minimis shipments valued at $200.00 or less.
