Packages that contain clothing are booked in every day via Parcel Monkey, as customers look to save money on sending clothes all over the globe. Our shipping calculator will find you the best prices around with well known and trusted couriers, who provide a quality delivery experience.
We help not only individuals but small online businesses too that are selling clothing online and ship to their customers all around the globe. Some even use our cheap international shipping for handling returns as well.
Other customers are only shipping within one country and make the most of our affordable Domestic services whilst other people use us to send old clothes to friends or family who live overseas and choose a more economically priced courier such as DHL eCommerce.
Clothing is generally sent with no problems especially if it is being sent inside a country but it is important that when shipping clothes they are packaged and labeled correctly. Suitcases should not be sent unless they are packaged within a box with UPS or DPD.
Labels can easily come off suitcases so attach them in a label tag to the handle. Ensure the case is not overfilled and be closed properly.
Neither Parcel Monkey or the courier partner will not be liable for loss or damage to incorrectly packaged items. Please take the time to package your box or suitcase correctly and read our packaging advice before shipping.
Firstly before shipping clothes internationally, check used clothes are not prohibited. For instance, some islands in the Caribbean have restrictions on used clothing being shipped. Please note you should provide a local contact number for the recipient in case any Customs Duty is owed and needs to be paid by the recipient before the package can be delivered.
Be sure to list all the clothing items you are sending on any customs documents. Rather than just putting clothing on a customs form, if one is required for your package, you should, for example, list the package contents as ‘3 blue shirts’, rather than ‘men’s clothing’. This form should be attached to the outside of the package in a clear wallet or envelope marked 'Customs' and be securely attached so they do not come loose much like the shipping label.
No aerosols or liquids should be sent, nor food, batteries or anything flammable. Sending items like this will mean your box could be held and delayed, or potentially even returned at the sender's expense.
