FAQ on sending care packages during a pandemic

How do I ship a care package to someone in lockdown?
Think about items or gift ideas you would include in your lockdown care package. Get good-quality packaging materials and follow our guidelines on packing various items for shipping. You can find cardboard boxes and other useful packaging materials for your pandemic care package in most stationery or hardware stores. Provide complete address details for pick-up and delivery. Make sure that someone will be available at the pick-up address to hand over the care package to the courier.
How much does it cost to send a quarantine care package?
The price for sending a quarantine care package depends on the distance between the pick-up and delivery destinations, the weight and size of the shipment as well as the urgency and type of transport service selected. You can get an instant quote in the booking engine below or else contact us via chat or email if you are unsure which service you need to ship a care package to someone affected by Covid or another disease.
What is the cheapest way to ship a Covid care package?
The cheapest way to send a care package to a loved one in quarantine is through our Standard Service. You can get the cheapest quote by entering your shipping information (pick-up and delivery address, parcel dimensions and weight, etc.) in our booking tool.
How do I send a care package safely during self-isolation?
Our door-to-door shipping services are ideal for sending care packages safely without leaving your home during self-isolation. To do so, disinfect and prepare your package before the courier’s arrival. Courier drivers are not likely to pick up the package if the sender is not present, but they may give you non-contact options for confirming the package pick-up. When the courier driver comes to pick the package up, make sure to avoid unnecessary contact. Wear a face mask and disposable latex gloves when handling the package.
If I ship a care package to someone during a pandemic, will it be insured?
Eurosender services include basic shipping insurance for most international and domestic shipments booked through our platform. You can purchase additional insurance at low rates during the booking process to get extra protection for your parcel. We recommend you keep the invoice of the items you are shipping to serve as a proof of value. Bear in mind that prohibited items are not covered by any insurance. If you send such items in pandemic care packages locally or abroad, you will not be able to claim compensation in the unlikely event of loss or damage.
How do I send many care packages to areas of pandemic?
Our Van Delivery Service is the best option if you plan on sending a large amount of goods to an area affected by pandemic or lockdown. You will have an entire vehicle dedicated to your shipment, with direct transport from the pick-up to the delivery address in Europe. There are less packaging and labelling requirements, which will make the shipping process much easier for you.
