Try to reduce the size by using a small box if possible. Doing so not only lowers the transport cost but is also environmentally friendly.

How to properly pack a parcel?

Packing your valuable goods correctly is critical. It ensures your items reach their destination safely. Let’s go over the basics, like how to pack and the efficient use of space. Remember that selecting a box that matches the size of the items you're shipping is also part of the process. A box that's too large can lead to items shifting around, while a box that's too small can increase the chance of damage.

Start off with a sturdy box and line the bottom with cushioning material like bubble wrap or foam. If sending multiple fragile items in one box, wrap each one individually for protection. Use packing peanuts or crumpled paper to fill any remaining space in the box. It prevents the contents from moving around during transit.

Once all items are snugly packed, make sure the box is sealed securely with packing tape. Additionally, the box can be reinforced on the bottom and the sides to prevent the box from opening or tearing. When sealing, apply the 'H' taping method. This method involves tapping along the middle seam and across the edges where the flaps meet, forming an 'H' shape.

Lastly, consider where your parcel is going. It will likely be humid if it's going to a coastal city. Place your items inside plastic bags before boxing them to help eliminate the chance of unwanted moisture. Pro tip: shake the box gently to check for movement. If you hear the items shifting, open it back up and add more bubble wrap until everything is secure. This attention to detail in how to pack will give your parcel the best chance of reaching its destination in perfect condition.

How Much Does it Cost to Send a Parcel to United Kingdom?

Cost is one of the biggest deciding factors when sending a parcel. So, how much does it cost to send a parcel to United Kingdom? That depends on multiple factors, including distance, size, weight, and urgency. The good news is that Ecoparcel allows you to compare prices from numerous top-rated international couriers all in one place.

For example, a parcel from Austria to Germany will cost significantly less than one from Austria to Sweden. Size and weight are also taken into the equation when calculating the price for sending a parcel to United Kingdom.

Lastly, urgency plays a big role in the overall cost. Time-sensitive parcels are much more expensive than regular delivery. But the good news is that you can help minimize the cost. Ecoparcel’s simple and transparent platform allows you to see exactly what it will cost for your parcel to get from A to B.

Ecoparcel offers several incentives and options to keep prices as low as possible. Free insurance for items valued up to €100 is one of them. The long-standing relationship between the couriers and Ecoparcel is another benefit that helps bring down the total cost.

If you are a new customer, the incentives are even better. Our platform offers up to 50% discount for new users.

How to Claim Compensation for a Damaged or Lost Parcel?

Although the delivery rate for parcels sent through Ecoparcel is extremely high, there is always the chance of a package getting lost or damaged in transit. We work with many couriers and do our best to make each parcel safe to its destination.

In the unfortunate event of a package being damaged in transit, we recommend filing a damage report as soon as possible. It can be done with the courier if you see visible damage when receiving the parcel. This method requires you and the courier to fill out a separate form at the time of delivery. From there, the shipping courier handles the rest of the process and files a claim for you.

If the damaged parcel is delivered while you are not home, contacting the customer service department of the courier is your best bet. They can file a claim and walk you through all the steps necessary for a refund. Ecoparcel can also file a report on your behalf and take care of all the communication for you.

Sadly, sometimes parcels go missing. If your parcel is lost, contact Ecoparcel’s customer service department. We can guide you through the steps of getting a refund for you.

If you want to claim compensation for a lost or damaged parcel, the process should be started immediately. It can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to receive your money back.
