Cheapest Courier to Spain with £20,000.00 of Insurance

For almost 30 years, Overland Express has been helping customers send goods to Spain. Initially in 1992, we had our own fleet of vehicles, but as times have changed, so have business practices. Nowadays, we only partner with top-tier courier industry names such as DHL Express and UPS.

Through our purchasing power with these industry giants, we are able to obtain their best delivery services to Spain at better rates than the general public can obtain. These savings are passed on to you, and we challenge you to find a cheaper DHL Express parcel delivery service to Spain than what we offer. Our extensive experience with most courier delivery services has shown that we cannot rely on budget providers. They are usually priced similarly to the DHL Express delivery service we offer, but they are usually unreliable, and their transit times can take up to a week to arrive. If you compare their transit times with our 1 to 2 day DHL delivery service to Spain, you'll notice that using Royal Mail to send a parcel to Spain takes 4-6 days, and if you use Evri, the transit time is quoted as being up to seven working days.

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

By default, our parcel delivery services include £50.00 of cover against loss or damage (unless specifically excluded), and additional insurance is available up to £20,000.00 (exclusions apply). All our DHL Express delivery services to Spain will collect directly from your address. However, if you choose UPS, you have the option to drop the consignment off at a local collection point.

Since the UK officially departed from the European Union (EU), sending a parcel to Spain is no longer as straightforward as it used to be. However, we have developed a system to automatically produce the required commercial invoice based on the information you enter while making your booking. We also maintain a selection of commodity codes for items that may be contained within your consignment. If your item is not on the list, you may need to visit the Gov.uk website to find the specific commodity code required.

Once you complete the booking process, you will receive an email containing the commercial invoice, which you must print all three pages of and attach them to the exterior of one of the parcels that you are sending. It's best practice to place this document in an envelope and clearly write "commercial invoice" on it, then Sellotape it to the parcel.

This service is for parcel delivery to mainland Spain and local islands only. It does not cover distant islands or Spanish overseas territories.

In conclusion, Overland Express has been in the parcel delivery industry for almost 30 years, and we partner with top-tier courier industry names such as DHL Express and UPS. Through our purchasing power, we offer their best delivery services at better rates than the general public. We have extensive experience with most courier delivery services and have found that budget providers are usually unreliable, and their transit times can take up to a week to arrive. When you send a parcel to Spain, a cardboard box must be used for the outer packaging due to COVID-19 handling restrictions. Our parcel delivery services include £50.00 of cover against loss or damage (unless specifically excluded), and additional insurance is available up to £20,000.00 (exclusions apply).

Packing Advice for Sending a Parcel to Spain

When sending items to Spain, you should consider how fragile or expensive the goods are that you are shipping to Spain. We always recommend packing expensive and/or fragile items in two boxes. The items should be wrapped in bubble wrap and placed within the first (inner) box. This first (inner) box should then be wrapped in bubble wrap and placed within the second (outer) box or the first (inner) box should be placed within the second (outer) box and tightly packed with packing peanuts.

It is also recommended to print a second copy of the parcel label, and place this inside the larger box, should the original label become detached or damaged the courier company will open the carton to attempt to establish the delivery address.

Doing this will marginally increase the volumetric size of the overall package that you are sending to Spain, which will only slightly increase the cost of shipping to Spain. However, this also best practice if using our enhanced insurance service as in the event of a claim, our insurer will request to see the packaging to ensure that steps were taken to prevent unnecessary damage whilst the parcel is being shipped to Spain.

Helping Feline ship their stuff

Feline Guitars have been using this small company for a number of years and always had great service and competitive pricing. We had previously used UPS directly till it got to be hard work to communicate with them. The personal attention and help that you can get in an industry that is increasingly automated and hands-off is a welcome thing to have.

Southwell Guitars Recommend…

Southwell Guitars have been using Overland Express for some years now for sending our guitars worldwide. Most major courier companies do not insure musical instruments but Overland Express have an insurance service that specialise in musical instrument insurance, giving my customers and me peace of mind. I also like that Stuart and Tim are always easy to contact if there are any questions or If I need any help. This was especially helpful after the chaos created by Brexit and the Covid pandemic. Overland Express are my first choice when I am sending guitars, something I do on a regular basis and recommend them to anyone.

Highly recommended personal service

I've been using Overland Express now for a number of years. As I send a good number of both electric and acoustic guitars every year, I wanted to find a company that offered reasonable shipping and insurance rates that guaranteed to cover guitars against loss or damage to their true value. Step forward Stuart and Overland Express. They offer top couriers and reasonable insurance costs to send guitars worldwide. In all the time I've used them I've never once had an issue. Service is quick, reliable and it is a real bonus you are able to contact someone quickly who will deal with issues should any arise. Highly recommended.
