Spain is a part of the European Union, and as such has embraced the free movement of goods throughout the union. This means that if you’re shipping from within the EU, then there is no need for customs paperwork and your goods will not have duties or taxes levied when entering Spain. However, when sending from elsewhere all packages worth more than €150 will have to pay duties and taxes.
When you’ve made a booking with Fastlane®, we will be able to pick-up parcels from many locations across the UK and Spain on the same day.
If your goods are larger than 180cm or heavier than 50kg, packages of this size require an advance booking of 24 hours. In this case, you will also be required to assist your courier in loading and unloading the delivery.
If you’re sending a pallet or an item requiring a tail lift or pallet truck, please contact our customer care team prior to collection.
With the exception of our timed delivery services, we will attempt to deliver your package between 9am and 6pm on normal working days. If our first attempt is not successful and we cannot leave the package in a safe place, most couriers will make two further attempts at delivery however DPP only make one attempt.
Some of our delivery partners, like UPS, may sometimes leave parcels in a safe place without taking a signature to confirm delivery. If you need proof of delivery, please use the upgrade option ‘Signature required’ on our ‘select service page’.
When you ship with Fastlane®, we want you to know that your parcel is in the best possible hands. With that in mind, we offer door-to-door tracking with every parcel – so you can follow the progress from the moment you hand over your package to your courier until it is passed over to its recipient.
If there is a problem with your package you’ll be notified as soon as you track your parcel, and if you need to contact us our UK-based customer services team will be on hand to help you get your parcel moving again.
And, so you’re definitely in the loop, we’ll also send you and your recipient emails so that everyone knows if your shipment encounters a delay.Read more about tracking your Spain delivery
Just like sending a normal parcel, if you’re sending a gift from within the EU then there is no need to worry about duties or taxes. If you’re sending from outside the European Union, there is a gift exemption for parcels worth less than €45 that means that you won’t need to pay any fees when importing. When gift shipments are worth more than that, you will only pay duties and taxes above the threshold amount.
When a package has duties or taxes applied, the recipient will be contacted to pay the fees. Until they do so, the parcel will not be released from customs. If you would prefer that the sender pays the customs, please get in touch with our customer services team who can help you get the charges reversed. Don’t forget that if the fees are not paid, the shipment will not be released from customs and may be destroyed.
Even the largest and heaviest parcels can be sent with Fastlane® – we have great specialty partners and offer cheap and reliable shipping of oversized or bulky items that are as heavy as 1,000kg in weight, including pallets. When using our air freight or pallet shipping services to send large or heavy shipments to Spain, you just need to remember to book at least 24 hours in advance and be on hand when your courier arrives to offer assistance in loading and unloading your shipment.Learn more about sending large parcels to Spain
Spanish food is delicious – there’s a reason it’s world renowned! – but there is only so much Pulpo a la Gallega, Jamon or Chorizo one person can eat, and sometimes we yearn for the taste of home. Fastlane® makes it easy to send food to Spain, but there are a couple of things that are important to keep in mind.
International shipping isn’t a gentle industry, and moving goods around the world takes a lot of people and handling. By the time your parcel is at its Spanish destination it will have passed through the hands of dozens of people. If you’d like your goods to arrive in the same condition that they left in, it’s vital that you properly package them.
When you’re packing your goods, there are three main things to keep in mind to make sure that there aren’t any issues while shipping:
The best way to make sure that there are no problems during the shipping procedure is to pick the best box. We suggest that you use a new box for every shipment – old boxes can become weak. Double corrugated boxes are the strongest, so we suggest that you use those.
There are two key aspects of the internal packaging for your box: the actual wrappings of the goods, and the soft supporting material. It’s important to use plenty of wrapping for your goods – there should be several inches of wrapping on all sides. Surround your goods with packaging material – they should be suspended, not touching any part of the box.
If you are not using a new box, make sure to remove all prior labelling from it. If you do not, there may be problems in delivering your package. When sealing up your box, use strong packaging tape. This is important as the tape gives the box extra strength, and helps shore up any weaknesses there may be in the box. Tape up in both directions, wrapping the entire box at least three times in each direction. Make sure to also pay extra attention to the corners – they tend to be the weakest points.

With Fastlane®, shipping food to Spain is easy, as long as you follow some simple rules. Make sure that the food you want to send is store bought, in the original packaging and not opened. It’s also important to make sure that it’s not perishable, which means that you cannot send food that may go out of date within six months – homemade food is not allowed.
For shipments that originate inside the European Union, there are no fees whatsoever for importing into Spain. When duties and taxes are applied to goods, they are added as part of the customs clearance procedure. This is a part of the shipping process that Fastlane® has no control over.
Yes, there are two sets of goods that you cannot ship to Spain. The first is the items that are not allowed to be sent by courier – such as perfume and cologne, which are considered hazardous liquids – which you can see on Fastlane’s Restricted Items List . In much the same way, Spain have a list of goods that they do not allow into the country, so if you’re not sure whether or not your goods will be allowed into Spain, make sure to contact their customs team before shipping.
Just like a normal package, any gifts sent to Spain from countries inside the EU will not have duties or taxes added while clearing customs. If this is not the case however, there is a gift exemption for goods worth less than €45, meaning that low value gifts will not have fees attached. If your parcel is worth more, it will have duties and taxes applied as usual.
With more than 30 years of experience, Fastlane® has forged a reputation for the best possible service at a great price. Not only do we work with the biggest couriers in the business, we also offer free door-to-door tracking and complementary insurance with every shipment, all for more than 60% cheaper than booking directly. We also offer a business service to help with your company’s delivery solutions.
You can ship large items with Fastlane®. In fact, Fastlane® specialise in shipping oversized or heavy goods. Our air freight and pallet shipping services are capable of carrying goods up to 1,000kg in weight as long as they are palletised. For goods that are not on a pallet, our large and heavy services can permit parcels that weigh as much 70kg and are as long as 270cm.
eBay items are subject to the same customs rules as any other parcel, so be sure to check Spain’s prohibited items before listing. You can find great deals on eBay delivery with our eBay shipping calculator .
If you’re sending to an urban area, we can deliver next day, however if you’re sending to some of the more remote areas of Spain such as Cazorla, Extremadura or Maro delivery may take an additional day or two, which we’ll let you know when you get an online quote.
