Parcel to the uk
#1
Trying to investigate the best way to send a parcel back to the uk, up to 10kg in weight needs to be tracked. What are the most reliable options and has anyone sent a parcel since Brexit? Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

I haven't sent one since Brexit but 3 options I would consider:

1. Woodside Cargo SL. (El Matorral) They may have a van going back to UK soon. Don't know how this would work once they get to UK though.
2. DHL (El Matorral)
3. Correos (Post Office)

I sent a small parcel to the UK last week via Correos. They offered standard (no tracking) or one with tracking for an extra cost.

It was posted on 5th March, standard, so it'll be interesting to see how long it takes to get there.

The parcel reached rural West Wales this morning - only 8 days!  I'm very surprised.

When I sent a registered letter in January, it took 25 days to get there.

Birthday cards that should have reached here by end of February - none did & still haven't!

My daughter posted card & present separately. A good 2 weeks early. Both arrived same day before due date! Smile No duty.

I just wanted to send a parcel of clothes back to the uk, will see what correos charges might not be worth it in the end! I don't mind how long it takes as long as it gets there.
Back in December my friend sent a small parcel that took 2 weeks to arrive. The same size parcel sent in Feb took over 4 weeks...
