The Republic of Namibia is a large country in the continent of South West Africa that is surrounded by a lengthy shoreline along the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. It borders South Africa, Angola, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. The UK has strong Commonwealth connections with Namibia, which means that the cross-border trade between the two is relatively strong, not least due to the tourism and mining sectors and a well-developed banking system. Namibia is home to over 2 million people, many of whom reside in Windhoek, the country’s largest city. In 2008, the United Kingdom imported over $700 million in goods from Namibia, making it the second largest importer of Namibian goods after South Africa. Thanks to these strong trade relations between the two countries, parcel delivery to Namibia is both efficient and in demand. Below is some further information to help you find the cheap courier services to Namibia.

Parcel Delivery To Namibia

Thanks to a variety of companies offering cheap courier to Namibia, the price is competitive and the service is efficient. Different courier services offer different delivery speeds for parcel delivery and the quickest speed comes in at 1-3 days with a special delivery service. The slowest, and most cheap delivery to Namibia, can take up to 8 weeks and there are other varying timelines in between so you will be able to find a suitable option to suit the urgency of your parcel. Other factors may contribute to the delivery speed of your parcel, including any issues with customs at border control. To avoid this, make sure you have your customs declaration form filled out for each item you are sending as this is required when posting parcels to addresses outside of the European Union. Failure to do so could see your Namibia parcel delivery being undelivered.

Another factor which can affect delivery times of your cheap delivery to Namibia is the location in which you are sending your parcel within Namibia. This is because some Namibia parcel delivery couriers may struggle to complete express deliveries to more remote destinations within the country. If you have an exact post code of your delivery destination, this will clear up any confusion. Before you send a parcel to Namibia, be aware that the country doesn’t conduct postal delivery on Saturdays and Sundays and this too will affect when your parcel arrives at its final destination.

Addressing your parcel to Namibia

To ensure your parcel delivery to Namibia from UK arrives safely at the correct destination it’s important you write the address in the correct format of the country you are sending.

Packing your parcel correctly for delivery

You should ensure your parcel is correctly packed for the items within. It needs to be able to endure the general wear and tear associated with cheap shipping to Namibia. We recommend you include the phone number of the person receiving the parcel to assist with the delivery and it’s always a good idea to include a UK home address on the parcel itself and on a separate piece of paper within the parcel. This means if your parcel is unable to be delivered due to a variety of reasons, your parcel can be returned to you. Do remember, however, that parcel delivery companies will not compensate you should this happen. If you send a parcel to Namibia containing items of high value then we would suggest that you include insurance cover for them. You should also remember to remove any labels that are currently on your delivery box (this is usually the case if you are reusing a box), as it can cause unnecessary confusion during delivery and result in your parcel being delivered to the wrong address. One last note is if you are sending money via your parcel, to ensure it’s not at risk, do not indicate anywhere on the parcel that you have money enclosed and avoid sending any loose coins as this can put your parcel at higher risk.
