FAQ – Shipping luggage internationally with DPD

Can I send a suitcase with DPD without a box?
No, DPD only allows clients to ship luggage pieces if they are appropriately packed inside a cardboard box. If your item does not match the packaging requirements, DPD holds the right to refuse to collect it.
For more information, check our page dedicated to luggage shipping services in Europe and abroad. You may also benefit from our guide about how to pack personal items.
Will the courier collect the item at my house when I schedule a DPD suitcase delivery?
It depends on the specific conditions of the service you selected. Some DPD luggage shipping services already include home collection, but for others, the customer is required to drop off the item at a local store. The availability of both services will depend on your location, so we recommend checking directly with the courier for specific information regarding your order.
To avoid all of this trouble, simply book your suitcase delivery with Eurosender. All of our services are entirely door-to-door, so you never have to worry about carrying the item to the drop-off point or waiting in endless lines for picking up a package.
Can I have deodorants and perfumes on my luggage when shipping with DPD?
Unfortunately, no. Aerosols and liquids are amongst the list of items considered prohibited by DPD. These items are considered dangerous for shipping because they may leak and cause damage not only to your parcel but to others too. To ensure your delivery goes smoothly, make sure not to include any prohibited items on your bag when shipping luggage internationally with DPD.
Can I send a suitcase to the USA with DPD?
DPD is a specialist in shipping within Europe, but they also offer certain shipping services overseas. However, the routes available may be limited.
If you want to send your luggage globally, we recommend booking your delivery through our platform. Our software will automatically identify the best courier for your route, which may be DPD or whoever offers the best shipping conditions.
