Our long expertise in sending items both nationally and internationally predates the birth of online shopping. We have embraced the demands of online shopping and can provide you with a fast and efficient service to ensure your goods always arrive in perfect condition and on time.
Your first step is to ensure you choose the correct method of delivery for your item to assist in winning the sale. You should contact your nearest PACK & SEND service centre if any of the following statements represent your needs:
After you have won an auction or purchased an item on eBay, the next step is getting your item delivered to your door. If you have purchased an item that requires particular care, such as something valuable or fragile, then at PACK & SEND we can provide you with a wide range of personalised eBay delivery services to ensure the entire process is as smooth and convenient as possible, and that your item arrives safely.
One of the least convenient features of receiving a package after you have won an auction on eBay is waiting for your item to arrive and not knowing when to expect it. But with PACK & SEND you can choose the day that it arrives so you know exactly when to expect it, and you know that it is in safe hands because we specialise in delivering fragile and valuable items.
When you purchase an item on eBay, you can choose the option of having your parcel conveniently delivered to your door. However, we can also deliver your item to your nearest PACK & SEND service centre so that you can collect it at a time suitable to you.
This is the most convenient option if you are regularly out and about and you want to collect items you have purchased on eBay. You may also be concerned about a particularly valuable item being delivered to your house and you may prefer to pick it up in person. If you want to collect your parcel at a time convenient to you, arrange for your seller to send your item with PACK & SEND on a ‘parcel collect’ service.
Are you worried about how to protect your item during transit? This is of particular concern when you purchase an item that is shaped awkwardly or is very fragile. At PACK & SEND, we specialise in packaging services and can provide you with tailor-made wooden crates for fragile items, as well as other custom solutions. So don’t worry about your item arriving damaged or broken, and trust us to get it to you in good condition.
One of the common fears about online shopping is that you don’t know where your item is at any one time, and if you have spent a lot of money on your purchase this can be quite stressful. But with our detailed tracking service, you know exactly where it is, and this provides you with even greater peace of mind when you shop online.
To provide you with even more reassurance when you arrange delivery for your valuable items purchases at eBay, we can also offer a warranty. This protects the value of your consignment in the event of loss or damage, giving you complete peace of mind.
To take full advantage of the benefits of online shopping, you need to use a delivery service you can trust. At PACK & SEND, we provide a full delivery service to make receiving your valuable, fragile and large online purchases convenient and secure. So buy your items on eBay and let us take care of the delivery for you.
One of the most important aspects of purchasing goods on eBay is being sure that the item you bid or purchase for is the item you actually want. As an online buyer, you may be unwilling to risk purchasing certain high-value items that you have not physically inspected. A solution to this problem is PACK & SEND’s ‘Item View’ services.
This service involves the seller bringing its goods to its nearest PACK & SEND service centre. The buyer of the goods instructs PACK & SEND to view the item and communicate details of its inspection. This service allows the buyer to assess the condition and authenticity of the goods before any payment and despatch.
At times buyers of high-value items desire to personally view the item before purchase. This service involves the item being sent to a PACK & SEND service centre located in the vicinity of the buyer where it can be viewed under controlled circumstances. This service leaves buyers with more confidence having seen the item and its condition. The cost of this shipping service can be borne by the seller or the potential buyer.Get a quote
Whether you are a first time eBay user or an eBay Powerseller, using PACK & SEND can save you time, money or help you sell more products. At PACK & SEND we understand the system of eBay and are active members of the eBay community. With our range of eBay services, PACK & SEND is the logical choice for eBay buyers and sellers.
If you know the details of the item you wish to sell on eBay (e.g. weight, dimensions, value etc) then PACK & SEND can determine a price estimate and transit times for delivery to major destinations. We can provide this estimate to you by email in the form of a HTML template, which you can easily insert into your eBay published listing.
PACK & SEND does not have a general price list available for those customers who do not know the relevant details of the items they wish to sell. Unlike a traditional freight company, we care about the item that needs to be transported and does not treat all items the same. We use our expertise to determine the most appropriate packaging and transport method for your valued item. For this reason, all of our services are individually tailored to the task at hand.
When you visit a PACK & SEND service centre and provide us with the item to be packed and delivered, we are able to determine a quote. A quote is a fixed priced for services. However, when you phone a PACK & SEND service centre we assess your needs and provide a price estimate based on the information you have communicated to us. This information includes weight, dimensions, value, fragility and destination. If on the receipt of goods at the service centre this information has changed, then the price to be charged to you may also change. This charge may be higher or lower than the original price estimate provided over the phone. PACK & SEND obtain customer approval before proceeding with any services that may need to be charged at a rate higher than the original price estimate.
This situation may be unavoidable if you have a low-value item that is bulky and or heavy. Whilst a low-value item may result in a lower packaging price, its value will not have an influence on the transportation charges. This is because the cost to transport goods is determined by weight and volume regardless of the value of the goods. For example, a large Pram purchased on eBay for £10 may require an additional investment of £50 (depending on destination) for packing and delivery.
There is no real way to avoid this situation, except to obtain a freight and packing estimate from your local PACK & SEND service centre before you buy the item. This may help you to understand the true cost of acquiring the merchandise. PACK & SEND’s expertise and understanding of the freight industry enables us to determine the most suitable method of transportation for your needs.
PACK & SEND and the Post Office primarily offer different services, so prices cannot be really compared.
The Post Office specialises in the provision of mail services. Mail services are designed for small, low value, non-time-sensitive items where reliability is not an issue (mail services do not offer tracking services for items whilst in transit). If your item fits this description, then you may find the Post Office is your best delivery option for this item.
PACK & SEND specialises in express freight, courier services, and small furniture removals. We are the industry leader with respect to handling goods that are fragile, large, awkward, and valuable. We offer a professional packing service and specialise in the transportation of items that are time-sensitive. We offer track and trace, and a range of personalised solutions that can not be taken ‘off the shelf’.
The PACK & SEND warranty service provides our customers with ‘Loss or Damage Protection’. To find out more about the Service click here.
