Guidance on shipping large parcels and bulky items


If you’re sending heavy items or fragile bulky items we recommend palletising them. When shipping by courier the goods will be loaded and unloaded multiple times, if you palletised the goods, it makes handling the items easier and reduces the risk of damage.


is a courier, not a furniture delivery service or removal company. We do not recommend shipping furniture unless they are palletised.


Other fragile household items, such as tables containing glass, basins or other large ceramic items are simply not suitable for transportation by courier unless they are professionally packaged and palletised.

Important things to know when shipping large items

If you’re sending a large parcel containing car parts, furniture, white goods or glass products, we do not normally offer compensation from these products in the event of damage. However, if your items have been professionally packaged and you send us images of the packaging in advance of shipping we can still offer additional cover, as long as we are satisfied that the packaging you are using is sufficient. Please contact us in advance of shipping for further support.

Packaging heavy or bulky items for transportation

Many people don’t realise that when you send a package by courier it will travel through multiple depots and customs and be handled many times. Therefore, packaging your items so they’re safe for transportation is extremely important.

Heavy items are especially difficult because they have to be lifted by a person! That’s why we recommend anything over 50 kg in weight should be palletised. For bulky items the box needs to be strong enough to support other items been placed on top of it. For example, if you’re sending a large painting, or something that is weak in the middle such as a car bonnet, if any weight is placed upon the middle of the box, it could easily collapse.

Choosing a suitable box:

  • We recommend using a new box.
  • Always use a double lined box for extra strength.
  • Don’t over pack the box.
Internal cushioning for fragile items

Internal packaging:

  • Fill the box full of packaging material such as bubble wrap.
  • Try and suspend the item inside the box so no part of the item is touching the inside wall.
  • Individually wrap each item.
packaging tape dispenser

Packaging tape dispenser:

  • Packaging tape helps strengthen and reinforce your box, so use as much tape as possible.
  • Make sure you tape around all the corners, joints and flaps.
  • Tape in both directions.
