What to consider before shipping a care package by courier

Regardless of the reason for sending a care package with gifts by courier, there are a few ways to prepare your shipment to avoid issues with collection, transit or delivery. When you decide to ship a care package by post or by courier, take into consideration the following:
Packing
Before your care package is collected, you must pack it carefully to minimise the risk of damage during transport and to avoid refusal by the courier. Check out our packing guidelines to pack and ship hundreds of items.
Prohibited and restricted items
You’ll certainly want to avoid legal issues or failed deliveries when sending gifts by courier in a care package. Make sure you’re not sending items which are prohibited or restricted by post or by couriers when deciding what to send in a care package.
Insurance
All standard shipments booked with Eurosender are covered by basic insurance, included in the price. Additional insurance is available to purchase at low prices.

Common delivery issues when shipping care packages by courier

When a courier collects your parcel, you expect it to be delivered with no issues. However, there are a number of easily avoidable problems which can lead to failed deliveries, delays and even lost or damaged parcels. When you book parcel delivery for care packages, be sure to check the following:
No access
Some premises, i.e. University campus, apartment buildings, nursing homes, etc., require additional information such as access codes or intercom instructions to gain entry. They may also have multiple entrances, or special loading bays for deliveries. Always provide all relevant information, including names of consignees, entrances etc.
Remote areas
Is your loved one in a rural or remote area? This may cause longer transit times and delays. When shipping care packages by courier, make sure you check the estimated delivery times carefully.
Damaged content
You don’t want your package to arrive damaged, so make sure you pack your parcel well and instruct the receiver to check the package carefully upon delivery.
Wrong details
It might seem like a rare thing, but providing incorrect addresses and contact numbers when shipping care packages by courier is the most common reason for failed deliveries and returned packages. To avoid this, see our handy template, or for a specific address, check our different care package pages.
