how much to post a parcel to south africa


It’s easy and affordable to send a parcel to South Africa from the UK. The most important thing to consider is the weight and size of your parcel, as these will determine the shipping cost. For example, a small parcel weighing up to 2kg will cost around £24 to ship to South Africa.

When sending a parcel to South Africa, you’ll need to make sure it’s properly packaged so it doesn’t get damaged in transit. It’s also a good idea to include a note with your contact details in case the parcel gets lost.

Once you’ve got your parcel ready, you can use an international courier service like DHL or FedEx to send it to South Africa. The delivery time will depend on the service you choose, but it’s usually between 3 and 5 days.

It is not difficult to post a parcel to South Africa, but there are a few things that you need to take into account. The most important thing is to make sure that your parcel is properly packaged so that it will not be damaged in transit. It is also important to make sure that you include all of the necessary documentation, such as a customs declaration form.

The cost of postage will vary depending on the size and weight of your parcel, as well as the destination. You can check the cost of postage on the Royal Mail website.

Once you have your parcel ready to go, you can take it to your local post office or drop it off at a post box. If you are posting from the UK, you will need to use an international postal service such as Royal Mail International or Parcelforce Worldwide.
