All carriers will accept a package with a label on it regardless of its destination at any of their drop off points. This does not mean the package will arrive on time. Incorrectly packaged or label shipments will often stop at the first customs inspection location and be held. This hold can be for a few days or permanently, depending on the errors. They might return the package or destroy it. Please take the documentation requirements seriously and never lie on the customs forms. The shipper will be liable for any and all misrepresentations on the shipment and responsible or any and all recharges from the carrier.
