STEP BY STEP GUIDE

How to quote and instantly book a shipment online: our guide

STEP 1

Choose your shipping route on our booking engine

Choose the countries of pick-up and delivery on our booking tool, then proceed to choose which shipping service you would like to book. We offer multiple shipping services for instant booking and customised offers for ad-hoc requests.

Here is what you can choose from:

  • Document – Book paper document deliveries in 24-72 hours worldwide
  • Package – Book a parcel delivery of up to 70 kg. With the package option, you can choose to book a Regular, Regular Plus or Express shipment. You will also have the option to book a same-day pick-up in some cases.
  • Pallet – Get an instant quote for shipping one or more pallets and schedule your pick-up in just a few clicks.
  • Van delivery – Book a dedicated van to deliver all your parcels, belongings or freight anywhere in Europe in the shortest time possible.
  • FTL & LTL (Truck delivery) – Book a shared or full truck instantly – without the need to wait for a quote.
  • Custom offer – We also offer custom solutions for anything that falls outside of our pre-defined services. Send us your request and we will reply to you in the shortest time possible with a personalised quote.

Don’t forget to also select if you are ordering as an individual or a company, and make sure you are logged in when placing your order.

Extra tip: if you register as a business and insert a valid VAT number, you will get additional discounts upon booking.
After you select your route and preferred service, press “Get a quote”.

STEP 2

Fill in the order details of the shipment you are booking and choose the service

Indicate how many envelopes, packages or pallets you are shipping and what their dimensions are. This information will help us calculate the price of the service and plan your collection and delivery in the smoothest way possible. Don’t forget to also indicate what is the content of your parcel and its value.

When booking a parcel delivery, you will also have to select the type of service you prefer:

  • Flexi – Shipping with same-day collection, available on certain routes.
  • Regular – Ideal for standard parcels and luggage.
  • Regular Plus – Allows larger parcels and has shorter transit times.
  • Express – Worldwide parcel delivery in less than 3 business days.

Choose your preferred pick-up date in the calendar. Depending on your requirements, you may be able to choose same-day pick-up.

Make sure you read and accept our Terms and Conditions and click “Next step”.

STEP 3

Provide the pick-up and delivery addresses of the shipment

This is one of the most important steps. Fill out the information about the pick-up and delivery addresses, including the name of the people who will be sending and receiving the package. Make sure to confirm that all the data is written correctly: street name, number, floor, postcode and city. If you have any questions regarding collections or deliveries at uncommon addresses, visit our page about shipping destinations or contact our friendly team using the chatbox at the bottom of your screen. Bear in mind that incomplete or inaccurate information can lead to shipping delays.

Finally, be extra careful when inserting the contact numbers both at the pick-up and delivery addresses: bear in mind that courier companies will normally only call local numbers and that if you don’t provide a correct number, we will not be able to contact you if there is any issue during pick-up or delivery.

STEP 4

Book shipping insurance and flexible booking if needed

Almost all shipments booked through Eurosender already include basic insurance coverage in the price. However, you can extend the insurance when shipping more expensive items. Pick one of the options available and protect your parcels or pallets up to €1,000, €2,000 or €5,000 for freight (higher insurance coverage can be arranged on request).

Are you not sure about the pick-up date? Or would you like to confirm the shipment at a later stage? Choose our Flexible changes option, and feel free to change your preferences.

Make sure you read and accept the Terms and Conditions, and, once finished, click “Next step”.

STEP 5

Pay for your shipment and confirm your booking

To get a courier to collect your shipment, you just need to pay for the order after selecting the delivery service and entering the pick-up and delivery addresses. This is also the step where you can insert any discount coupons or codes you may have.

We offer several payment options for your convenience:

  • Credit Card
    We accept credit cards from various providers (Visa, MasterCard). All payment details (such as credit card number, security code, etc.) are completely safe and will not be handled or disclosed to us or our courier partners, seeing as we use a secure payment system provided by Adyen.

Using Apple Pay or Google Pay is a safe payment option that guarantees your payment details are not directly handled by or disclosed to us or our courier partners.
  • Payment with user credits
    This payment option is available for all users who create an account on our platform. In the user’s profile, there is an option for topping up the account with the desired amount of money and paying for the orders with the available credit.By choosing to pay with user credits, you will benefit from a faster and more secure booking. You won’t need to enter the payment details every time you book the service, and your order will be processed instantly. Moreover, any reimbursement of the costs of service will be made available in the user account, and you will be able to use the credit for your next orders.

STEP 6

How do I send something by courier?
Sending something by courier has never been so easy or affordable. All you have to do is book your shipment in less than 2 minutes by following our step-by-step guide above and prepare your items in a box for collection. You will then be able to track the shipment in real-time and request proof of delivery after the service is completed.
How do you arrange shipping?
Booking a shipment is just the first part of the whole logistics process of sending something. Depending on where you are sending your parcels and what are the items inside, you will need to take some things into consideration:
  • You are responsible for packing your parcels: To make sure they will not get lost or damaged due to lack of packaging, we suggest you pay extra attention to this step. Also, make sure the parcel is packed and ready to go at the moment of collection.
  • You may have to print the shipping label: some couriers will bring the label for you, while others expect you to affix it to the package before they come. When booking shipping with Eurosender, you will be able to see which services require you to print the label yourself when choosing the one that suits you best. All this information will also be provided to you by email.
  • Shipping between different trade zones: shipping outside the EU or between countries that don’t have special economic agreements means you will need to prepare additional documents for customs clearance, such as a proforma or commercial invoice. Make sure to check with the customs authorities what documents you need and have them ready by the time you book the shipment so that your delivery will not be delayed.
  • Sending exotic items? Not all items are allowed by courier companies, so you should make sure you are not shipping something that is prohibited or restricted for shipping before booking your parcel delivery.
How to determine the shipping costs?
Estimating shipping costs can be hard sometimes, especially if you have an online store that ships worldwide. With our booking tool, you don’t have to make approximate calculations: simply type the pick-up and delivery countries and proceed to fill out the form with the exact dimensions of your shipment to instantly get the shipping costs for your goods.
How do I arrange a courier collection online?
When booking a shipment through Eurosender, you don’t have to arrange for the collection yourself unless you booked Flexi or the flexible changes add-on. Our logistics experts will take care of the whole process for you, and the only thing you have to do is choose your preferred pick-up date.
Do all couriers pick up parcels?
Not all couriers pick up parcels at home when paying for their basic service. Some courier companies will charge an extra fee for door-to-door delivery and prefer, instead, that parcels be collected and delivered at parcel shops.
At Eurosender, all deliveries are door-to-door, so when you book a shipment with us, you can rest assured that someone will pick up the parcel exactly wherever you wish. Read more about our home collection services.
