Germany is a member of European Union which means that are no custom fees when sending a parcel. However there are still items which are prohibited from entering the country.

We recommend you always research what you can and can't send before shipping to Germany. 

Alternatively, you can check the Worldwide Parcel Services restricted and prohibited items list here and check the Germany customs information website here.

Some things that are uniquely prohibited include:

  • Absinthe
  • Religious notations on the address side of articles
  • Mobile phones containing lithium
  • Lithium batteries
  • Playing cards
  • Pulverized cocoa beans.

Although we have listed a few, it is still important to check the Germany prohibited items list before sending a parcel with WPS.

Best price and few problems

I've had many packages picked up from the UK and delivered to Germany. WPS has always been the cheapest option compared to couriers own prices and of similar sites. Only problems I've had have always been the fault of the delivery company rather than WPS.

Great Service

I recently used this website for the second time. The service was excellent and my parcel was delivered to Germany within the promised time frame for a great price. I also called the customer services with a tracking query, the lady I spoke to well helpful and friendly. Brilliant website too!

excellent service

We sent a large box of maternity clothes to a relative in Germany as a surprise. The box got there within the stated time. I would definitely use this service again and recommended to people seeking similar.

Great Service

I have used this service several times to send parcels to my daughter in Germany. The website is easy to use, the price very reasonable, you can book a pick up date on the same day or soon after and the parcel always arrives when stated. Because I can track it I can always let my daughter know when to expect delivery. The only thing I would change is the 9-5 pick up time, it would be great if you could have at least an am or pm collection. Other than that it's a great service.
