People want to send all kinds of things by courier, and most of the time it’s just common sense what can and can’t be sent.
However, some items which may seem harmless do actually pose a threat when in transit and it’s important that we safeguard not only our staff but also the general public. All couriers will have a list of what items can and cannot be couriered, these are very similar from courier to courier.
The rules also depend on where you’re sending your parcel, whether it’s inside Ireland, inside Europe, or worldwide, as different destinations have different customs rules.
Sending apparently harmless things further afield to other areas of the world may even have unforeseen consequences for communities, the environment and ecosystems.
There may also be different rules for businesses as opposed to private customers. If you have a query, call our team today for advice on 01 6610000.
Most private customers that contact us with concerns about whether their parcel can be sent are worried about the size, dimensions, or fragile nature of their parcel. Usually this is not an issue, just call us and we can give you the best advice for your particular shipment.
Over the years we have sent all kinds of things, for example, water cleaning pump systems, washing machines, all types of machinery, refrigerated goods, even cupcakes! We’ll help you figure out how to pack your unusual items to minimise the risk of damage.
