Important UK - Highlands & Islands Customs Information

Shipper will need to complete a C3 Personal Effects Form supplied by SendMyBag for personal effects to be cleared duty free.

General Customs Information

Most countries offer a generous duty free allowance for personal effects and the majority of Send My Bag™ shipments worldwide will not be stopped by customs.

Personal effects are usually assessed as used items which have been in the sender's possession for 6 months or more. If your bag is checked by customs and is found to contain brand new or commercial items your shipment may be assessed for customs duties and taxes. If you are sending Christmas gifts please check with the destination country so you are aware of potential customs duties, follow their advice and attach all necessary documentation.

Customs processes and allowances do vary by country and as such we advise all travellers take 5 minutes to check how their personal circumstances and what they are sending will be assessed under the prevailing customs regulations of the destination.

When a bag is stopped by customs for any reason (missing documentation, prohibited contents, commercial contents or further information required) Send My Bag™ records how long customs hold it for. Our historical statistics for this route indicate that if the customs authority stops your bag they will on average take 1 days to process it and release it back to us for delivery.

More information is available on our customs information page.

In order to demonstrate your shipment is personal effects you will be required to complete a brief non generic packing list online, entries to be made in the format: "5 x Cotton T-Shirts, 2 x Jeans, 3 x Cotton Shirt" and so on rather than as "10 x Used Clothing".

Please note the Channel Islands are not within the UK Highlands and Islands region, Jersey and Guernsey are listed separately in our quick quote.

Not all Postcodes have a daily service and therefore may lead to a variation in the estimated transit time quoted at the time of booking. For collections from the Isle of Scilly, it may be necessary to drop items to a designated point on the islands.
