Delivering to the UK

Anyone know whats the best way to get stuff delivered to the UK.

I want to buy supplies from Walmart every few month and have them delivered to home in the UK.

I have seen a few websites that say they offer this service but im wondering does anyone have any recommendations or has previously done this?

OP you are probably fully aware but just a heads up please check through the personal impoerts website on Gov.uk

gov.uk/bringing-goods-into-uk-personal-use

I used to work in a similar field advising on this process and it can be a bit if a minefield and this will prevent potential personal importers having products stopped / confiscated or with huge customs charges added.

No worries , it’s good to know as things like Muscle foods ie with dairy and meat extracts are not permitted and some supplements so it’s good to find out before you pay out to order them and you might lose money if they are stopped at Customs.

In the past I used Stackry to purchase in baby/toddler clothes from Carters. May be worth checking out alongside the other two you noted.

I used to use MyMallBox to get parcels shipped but they started to add in little extra costs and with the actual shipping and UK taxes it wasn't worth it anymore. I stopped after I ordered a few Starbucks mugs from Shop Disney and the shipping costs and tax came to more than £150!

OP - I know you said you only want to order a small amount, but please be aware that the order value before paying tax/duties when shipping is quite low compared to when you're physically travelling and you also pay tax/duties on the shipping cost and then the parcel carrier often add on a handling fee.

Have you looked at the bath and body works sellers on Facebook, they after do personal shopping ….might work out cheaper…George Valencia certainly does , as I’ve used him a few times …he sents it to his partner over here, and she splits it up and sends each individual their parcel.
Hope that helps
