Parcel delivery weight
Many European countries have strict rules for parcel shipments regarding weight and measurement. A number of countries allow a limit of 50 kg per one package, while others - only 30 kg. If you have plans on sending something heavier than that, we recommend you split up the package into a few parts, to fit in within the weight regulations.
For example, let's say your shipment weighs 90 kg in total. It would be best to split it into 3 parts weighing 30 kg each. This way you will be sure that no rules are being violated regarding weight.
Let's say you're trying to send something that weighs 120 kg. Instead of putting everything into one parcel, it would be far better to split it into 4 parcels that weigh 30kg each. This way you can rest assured that no limits are violated when your item is being shipped from one destination to another.
Is parcel tracking available for deliveries to the UK?
Yes, we offer the ability to track your shipment at any moment you like. You can do that by simply entering the parcel order number on our website.
If you enter the code and no information is displayed, it could be:
- Our partner has yet to pick up your package.
- It's already been collected, but the information has not been updated yet. Typically the couriers will take care of this overnight.
It should be noted that most of our partners mark packages using scanners by hand. That means that the information may not be updated immediately, in case you are worried. You'll likely receive an update note when your parcel leaves the sorting bay.
If there are no updates after 24 hours:
If you still can't see any information on your parcel after a 24 hour period, make sure to contact our support team with the issue. It could be that the labeling on your package got damaged, which could lead to your shipment being lost.
Will I get insurance on my parcel to the UK?
Yes you will. Our packages to Europe receive a free insurance cover of €100. If you are sending more valuable items, you can purchase additional insurance for your package for extra safety.
