What is a Heavy Parcel?

A heavy parcel is exactly as it sounds - a package that weighs too much to be shipped with standard delivery services. Luckily, our heavy parcel shipping is perfect for those bulky items that are sometimes just too tricky to send.

When you choose our parcel delivery service, you have the flexibility to send parcels weighing up to 30kg each - making shipping heavy items effortless.

How to Package a Heavy Item?

When packing your heavy parcel, you must make sure it's secure and sturdy before arranging your parcel collection. To safely package your heavy parcel:

  1. Use a sturdy box or container appropriate for the weight and size of the items you're shipping. Reinforce the bottom of the box with extra tape to prevent it from breaking.
  2. Wrap each item individually with cushioning material such as bubble wrap or foam to protect them from damage during transit.
  3. Fill any empty spaces in the box with additional cushioning material to prevent items from shifting during transport.
  4. Seal the box securely with strong packaging tape, making sure all seams are well-covered to prevent the box from opening accidentally.
  5. Label the box clearly with the destination address and any special handling instructions, such as "Fragile" or "This Side Up," to ensure proper handling by the carrier.
