About Paddington Station:
London Paddington Station, known simply as Paddington, is located on Praed Street, in the Paddington area of London. It serves both as a central London railway terminus and an underground station. Londoners and travellers visit the station, not only to move from one point of the city to another but to also get to Heathrow airport. That translates to a high number of commuters, who often lose their belongings at the station.
Before you book a shipping service to retrieve your lost property from London Paddington Station, it is important to follow some important steps:
Please, make sure that your items will be protected during transit. Suitcases should be covered with protective plastic film and individual items must be placed in a cardboard box. We strongly recommend you to inform the railway employees on the measures that need to be taken before they hand-in your items to the courier driver. The steps are quite simple and the packaging materials cost nothing. Extra protective measures should be taken when shipping very fragile items, such as porcelain. You could also check our detailed guide on how to prepare various items for shipping.
