Absolutely! Your forward2me address is a regular UK postal address. It is not a PO Box.
We are now offering a personal shopper service to solve this. For instances where international payments are not accepted, forward2me will buy the goods directly and ship them to your destination address.
Please get in touch with customer services if you can't see the facility in your account details on the website. For this service, we charge £15 or 10% of the value of the goods, whichever is the greater + VAT.
Shipping parcels and boxes from the UK to Canada is relatively quick thanks to excellent postal links between the UK and Canada. Depending on which courier service you use, you can have your parcel delivered to your door in 3-4 business days.
Typically, DHL, TNT, P2P, and UPS services all provide a 3-4 business day transit time from the UK to Canada. However, if you are looking for the cheapest way to send a parcel to Canada from the UK, and do not mind waiting longer for your parcel, there are untracked alternatives that are cheaper but can take between 10 and 12 business days in transit.
To get estimates on packages delivered to Canada, visit our pricing page where you can save quotes and lock the price for 30 days.
Forward2me also offer a Protect+ Guarantee service, where goods up to the value of GDP 5,000 can be protected during transit. Before you choose your courier service read more on the forward2me Protect+ Guarantee here.
Food can be sent to Canada, but like any nation, Canada has strict controls over what can and cannot be imported into the country to help prevent diseases.
Any food sent to Canada has to be declared, so the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) requires paperwork to be attached to any parcels containing food. Forward2me will ensure that the corresponding documentation attached so that there is no hold-up or rejection of your parcel at customs.
it is important to understand what can and cannot be sent, as some foods are prohibited from being allowed into Canada. Before buying any food, you have to consider that:
- All food must be in the original manufacturers packaging, sealed and not tampered with in any way
- Food labels need to list all ingredients
- Any food is required to have a shelf life of longer than six months
Perishable food items are prohibited from entering Canada, examples of prohibited perishable food items are:
- Fresh fruit and vegetables
- Meat, poultry, egg, fish or shellfish
- Dairy products
- Any food that has a shelf life of less than 6 months from the date of purchase
If you are still unsure about any other items you can send to Canada, check our ‘Prohibited Items Policy’ before placing an order to our UK Warehouse.
