Why are personal belongings prohibited?

Your personal belongings are super important – usually, they're one-of-a-kind and can't be swapped out easily. That's why we've got a strict no-go on sending personal items through our delivery service, no matter what.

Our suggestion? It's best to handle moving your personal things yourself to ensure they get to where they need to be without a hitch. If you've got any questions, feel free to ask. We're here to help!


What is classed as 'glass or breakable items'?

We get that dealing with glass or delicate goods can be a bit fuzzy at times.

Since pallets can get shifted around up to 8 times while on their journey, we generally advise against shipping anything fragile on them.

This covers things like shower screens, fish tanks, window panes, and anything else that's easily breakable.

Before you lock in your pallet delivery, make sure to touch base with us about any restricted items.


Can I send an engine?

Feel free to ship an engine on a pallet with us, but it's crucial that the engine is completely drained beforehand. This involves ensuring there's no leftover oil, water, or other fluids in the engine before you secure it onto the pallet.

Should you require more guidance, don't hesitate to check out our Car Parts Courier Service page.


Does furniture have to be flat packed?

When you're sending furniture, it's best to have everything flat-packed where possible. Flat-packed furniture is way simpler to handle during shipping and generally makes it easier for you to secure everything onto a pallet.

Before you go ahead and book your pallet delivery, take a quick moment to go over any items that might have restrictions with us. We want to make sure everything goes smoothly.
