Send parcels to or from Crete!

Our Crete Express service will now be known as the “Crete Parcel Service”!

Pack your own boxes and send them to Crete for the cheapest possible rate!

The Crete Parcel Service, Nomad International’s ongoing depot-to-depot parcel delivery service, is the cheapest way to send parcels from the UK to Crete.

With regards to Brexit and customs issues, we will only be transporting parcels of packed up personal effects from our Peterborough depot and we will bring them to Crete. You can then collect the parcels from our depot in Vamos, or have us deliver them to your door on Crete for an extra cost 


We can still help arrange collection from your UK address for delivery to Peterborough if you cant drop off yourselves, and for this we just require your full collection address, quantity and dimensions of your boxes emailed to [email protected].

The price of this service is fully-inclusive of VAT, making the Crete Parcel Service the most cost-effective way to transport your goods to Crete. Once your parcels have arrived with us at the Peterborough depot, our team will contact you with your total cost and payment can be made to us over the phone by card. 

To place an order via the Crete Parcel Service, just follow these simple steps:

Step 1

Packing the items yourself into strong removal boxes! Check out our packing videos if you need any advice. For the outside of your parcels please complete this label and affix to the top of your box: 


Please note that unfortunately we can no longer transport any food products, alcohol, medication, plants or pots over to Greece!

Here is a link with regards to restricted and prohibited items transporting to Greece:

Step 2

Please address the parcels to:

[Your Name]
Nomad International Ltd
Oxney Road

Don’t forget to address the goods to your name at our address! This makes it much easier for us when they arrive.

Deliveries can be received at Nomad International between 8:30am and 5:00pm Monday to Friday.

Step 3

Please complete our parcel declaration forms with your address in Crete and email these over to [email protected]. Our team can then check with your inventory page that all parcels have been received for you before contacting you to finalise everything.

Step 4

With the depot-to-depot Crete Parcel Service, the weight of the parcel does not matter (as long as each parcel can safely be lifted by two men). The only time the weight does matter is if you would like us to arrange UK collection of the parcel, as in this case each parcel cannot weigh more than 30kg and there are some dimension restrictions.


We have lowered the cost of insurance to 2.0% plus IPT of the total value of the goods (subject to a minimum charge of £10.00+IPT for a valuation up to £500.00).  IPT is charged at a lower rate than VAT (it is 12%) so the total rate for insurance is 2.24% of the value of the goods, including all taxes.

We have slightly increased our charges due to customs admin paperwork, but there will be no extra charges for tax or duty on your personal effects once arrived in Greece. The table below outlines the pricing for depot-to-depot services:

Volume Price per Cubic Foot (including VAT) Charge per Order*
1-5cft £0.00 £60.00
6-39cft £12.00  
40-79cft £ 11.50  
80-149cft £10.00  
> 150cft Call for quote.  Collection from Chania not applicable: our premium removal service, which includes delivery, will be more cost-effective

Step 5

For items coming from Crete to the UK, the process is reversed, and we just require this declaration form to be completed with your address back in the UK and emailed over to [email protected]. We will wait until the items arrive in Peterborough before measuring them up, calling you to discuss the final details, and taking payment over the phone, or you can pay on collection via our card machine in the office.

Step 6

Your goods will be transported on the next available vehicle from Peterborough to Crete, which we still have departing the UK every three weeks on average, and you will be sent an email once your parcels are onboard the trailer and an approximate arrival date on Crete will be provided. 

Step 7

As soon as your goods arrive at the Vamos depot, Sheila will contact you to confirm and arrange a collection with you, or if paid for delivery to your property on Crete, our team member Mark will contact you directly to arrange this. 


Nomad International prides itself on the excellent customer service it offers to its removal customers, and we are concerned about continuing to offer this high level of service while catering for a much larger number of customers sending small consignments via the Crete Express. Therefore, so that we are able to maintain our high service standards, we ask that Crete Express enquiries be made by email rather than telephone where possible. If you have any questions that are not answered by our FAQ, please send an email to [email protected] and we will get back to you within 24 hours.

So to send a parcel to Crete, follow the steps above and get started straight away!
