Cheap parcel delivery to Italy

Shipping to Italy couldn't be easier with Overland Express. Regardless of whether you need to send documents or send a present to loved one or friend in Italy, we have solutions to cater for all parcel delivery requirements.

Our Quote tool will give you an immediate price for a parcel or document delivery to Italy, simply enter the weights and dimensions of the item that you need to send, and hit the Quote button.

When you send a parcel, a cardboard box must be used for the outer packaging due to COVID-19 handling restrictions.

If you have any questions about sending goods to Italy or wish to discuss sending a specific item, please email us at sales@overlandexpress.co.uk.

By default, all items that you ship are insured to £50.00, with the options to enhance the insurance value of the goods that you are sending to Italy up to £20,000.00 (exclusions apply).

All our shipping services are fully tracked from collection to delivery.

The United Kingdom (UK) left the European Union (EU) on 31 December 2020, which now means that VAT and a courier handling surcharge will most likely be applied to any deliveries to and from Italy.

A commercial invoice is also required to describe the contents and the value of the goods that you are sending. The good news is that 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 and each of these pages should be printed out (printer required) and placed into an envelope that must be clearly marked 'Commercial Invoice' and attached to only ONE of the parcels that you are shipping to Italy.

Excellent service with Real People!!!

I have been using overland Express for some months now to send liquids to France (not easy with Brexit) and they have given me a fantastic service. There is always an actual person!!! ready to pick up the phone or respond to your emails, they are a small team who all know what is happening and are always happy to help. Quite rare to find that nowadays!! So, I very much recommend them. They also have a good sense of humour when you call, they make my day!

Brilliant service

Brilliant service, found online after a lot of searching for someone to ship my Grandsons PlayStation 5 from UK to Ireland. Lots of other companies said that they couldn't deal with games consoles and the ones that did say that they couldn't be insured. Sent a few emails back and forth with both Tim & Stuart, answered promptly and confirmed that console was insured. Picked up Thursday evening and at my sons Saturday morning.
