Why are personal belongings prohibited?

Personal belongings are invaluable; In most cases, they cannot be replaced.

For this reason, we DO NOT allow personal belongings through our delivery network under any circumstance.

We recommend transporting personal belongings yourself to be certain they arrive safely. 

What is classed as 'glass or breakable items'?

We understand that when it comes to glass or breakable items, it is not always clear what this includes.

As pallets can be moved up to 8 times during their journey, we DO NOT recommend sending anything breakable on a pallet. 

This includes shower screens, fish tanks, window panes and any other fragile or glass items.

Please check restricted items with us before booking your pallet delivery

Can I send an engine?

You can send an engine on a pallet with us but this MUST be fully drained. 

This means draining any residual liquids, including oil and water, from the engine before securing it to the pallet. 

If you need further advice, please visit our Car Parts Courier Service page.

Does furniture have to be flat packed?

When shipping furniture, ideally all items should be flat-packed where possible. 

Flat-packed furniture is much easier to distribute and is generally easier for you to secure to a pallet.

Please check restricted items with us before booking your pallet delivery.
