How to pack an air conditioner for shipping?

To prepare a mini-split, portable, window or any other type of air conditioner for transportation, you need to follow these packing steps:

  • Disassemble all the removable parts. If your air conditioner has a water collecting dish, make sure it is dry.
  • Pack the removable parts like cables, remote control, etc. in plastic bags and wrap them with bubble wrap.
  • Prepare the box for shipping. It is recommended to use the original box, or you can take a cardboard box with similar dimensions instead. Put the old newspapers or packing paper on the bottom of the cardboard box.
  • Place the air conditioner and parts in the box. Please, do not turn your air conditioner sideways, because it will lead to the damages of its compression.
  • Add extra cushioning material between the items and seal the box with adhesive tape.

FAQs on how to transport ACs internationally by courier

Can I transport an air conditioner on its side?

It is highly recommended not to ship the air conditioner unit on its side or in an upside-down position. This placement could cause damage to the mounting of the compressor. In case you stored or transported an air conditioner on its side, let it rest in the upright position for an hour before turning it on.

What’s the safest way to transport an air conditioner system?

To protect the air conditioner during transportation, it is recommended packing it properly. When moving the air conditioner system within Europe, you can book our Van service and get a van dedicated only to your load. It is the most convenient and safest way to transport air conditioners, house appliances and furniture when moving.

Can I send a used AC I sold online by courier?
Yes, just measure the package and check what is the most appropriate service, using the size checker provided by Eurosender. After that, you can get an immediate quote on our booking tool or you can request an individual offer, if the dimensions and weight exceed the limits for standard or express service.
Does the air conditioner lose its gas when moved from one place to another?
Usually, transportation or re-installation does not affect the air conditioner’s gas loss. However, the gas loss during transit may happen due to leakage. It’s also necessary to repair the leak before recharging the gas as otherwise, the gas will leak out again.
How to uninstall an air conditioner before transportation without losing gas?
If you need to transport your air conditioner and you find yourself in a situation where you don’t know how to uninstall an air conditioner by yourself or don’t have special instruments, call a specialist and ask him to do it instead of you. Even a slight incorrect movement may cause damage to a unit.
