Prohibited Items, Non-Compensation Items and Packaging
While Stasher is proud to ship your belongings anywhere in the world, we can’t ship everything. For safety and security reasons, security and customs will not allow certain items to be shipped. While each country varies, this general list is prohibited everywhere.
- Money (cash or card)
- Fresh foods that will go bad
- Products for animals
- Aerosol sprays
- Anything dangerous
- Anything hazardous
- Confidential documentation (license, ID, passport, etc.)
And while we will ship just about anything, some items are not covered by our shipping insurance. These items can still be sent to Germany at your own risk. Please be extra careful when packing non-insured items by using sturdy suitcases or new/like-new boxes that can weather an international trip. Bubble wrap and newspaper are also recommended to cushion fragile belongings.
Germany’s Customs Regulations
If you’re already in Germany, you aren’t subject to import taxes and duties since countries within the EU aren’t required to go through customs. If you’re not already in the EU, your belongings are subject to import taxes. But the process isn’t that difficult. We will send you the necessary documents to attach to your luggage. Be as detailed as possible with the descriptions of the items in your luggage to help it pass through customs as quickly as possible.
If you’re sending a gift, make sure that the names and addresses of the sender and receiver are clearly printed along with your customs declaration. Your recipient must pay the duties fee before they receive the package. However, there is no duty fee for gifts that cost less than 135 euros.
Additionally, please don’t forget to attach your customs invoice to your luggage. If you forget, your luggage will not get past your country’s borders, and you’ll have to pay a fee to get your stuff back. We recommend checking with your local customs to ensure that you are following all of their rules. While Stasher does its very best to provide everything you need, we cannot guarantee that your items will make it abroad. Customs is the one area in which we have no control. Be as thorough and careful as possible so that your travels can be smooth and seamless.
