Packing Advice

Make pickups without hiccups


Pack your items safely

  • Address your parcel clearly. Include the sender’s details inside the parcel.
  • Use strong packaging. This should be the correct size for your item, neither too small so items could burst or too large so they’re loose and could be damaged.
  • Protect fragile items with bubble wrap or packing chips.
  • Remove old labels if you’re reusing packaging. This includes labels which could cause confusion such as hazardous material indicators or old addresses.
  • Messy stuff such as liquids, powders or strong smelling substances should be in sealed containers with ‘arrow-up’.

Make sure it all fits

  • For UK overnight services, items can weigh up to 50 kg and measure up to 3m in length
  • For global service, items can weigh up to 70 kg and measure up to 2.7m in length
