We can handle large and heavy items up to kg.
For items weighing more than 50kg each, we require 24 hours advanced booking and you will need to provide lifting assistance to the driver.
Shipments over 70kg and very large items, such as white goods or furniture, must be palletised prior to collection. Courier networks are not suitable for transporting large and heavy items that are not on a pallet, as there is a greater risk of damage. Please get in touch with our customer care team if you need help or advice sending a large or heavy item. Learn more about sending large and heavy items.
If you need to send a parcel in the UK, please ensure you have packed your items well. When you use a UK courier service your shipment will be handled multiple times, be loaded on and off vehicles and may have other packages placed on top of it.
They can also be subject to vibration or impact when being transported. It's therefore really important that your packaging is sufficient and strong enough to protect your items. Always make sure you use a strong box that doesn't have any creases, dents or holes. The more a box is used, the weaker it becomes so choosing a good strong box is really important. If in doubt, use a new one. It's equally important that the items inside are sufficiently cushioned so please ensure you fill the box with internal packaging materials so the items inside cannot move around during transport.
Last but not least, always ensure you use good, strong packaging tape and apply the tape to the box in both directions. The more tape the better. Use a strong box that's capable of supporting the weight of your items. We recommend using a double lined box for any items over 10 kg in weight. Your courier is only able to collect packages with the shipping label attached.
Please ensure you are able to print the labels and affix them securely to the package prior to collection. Couriers generally make deliveries in the morning and collections in the afternoons.
As couriers don't know in advance how many deliveries they will be making the next day or exactly where they will be delivering to, it's impossible for the routes to be planned in advance which is why we cannot offer a specific collection time for UK collections.

For example, if the booking cut off time for your area is 3pm, then we can often offer the option of a collection slot between 3pm and 7pm.

Home deliveries are logistically more challenging for couriers as they deliver less shipments per location compared with a business centre or industrial estate. Home delivery costs the courier company more and can include multiple delivery attempts if no-one is available to accept the shipment.
That's why most UK couriers add a small surcharge for shipments to a home address. However we still offer exceptional value with an exceptionally cheap UK delivery service.
For items over 10kg, our charges are cheaper than parcel post prices, and a lot more convenient than using postal services and posting your parcels.
