Better still, we handle all the legwork – from collection and packing of your items to doorstep delivery.Specialist Packing
Every package is unique and needs a bespoke packing solution – especially big, long and heavy parcels.
Key considerations when packing large parcels include space and adequate packing materials. You need enough space to lay your packaging materials around the goods before wrapping them. Plus, the box, container or parcel needs to be robust enough to keep your items in place and withstand impact during transit.
Large and awkward items pose additional challenges in packing and shipping, as they’re often heavier or more prone to damage. For example, delicate cargo with intricate components – like those found in IT equipment and servers – need to be handled with extra caution.
Whether by land, sea or air, our specialist shipping services offer peace of mind when transporting your large cargo. We’ll organise the shipping process from start to finish, too – to save you the hassle of handling large or heavy parcels at home.
We also provide customised end-to-end tracking and confirm receipt of your package, so you stay in the loop at every stage of your large parcel delivery.
We’ll collect your parcel, secure it in bespoke packaging with appropriate labels, and work with you to guarantee timely delivery.Specialist PACKING
