FAQs when shipping camera and grip equipment internationally

Is it possible to send photo or video cameras with lithium batteries?

Shipping cameras with lithium batteries overseas in the mail or by courier is perfectly legal both for private individuals and for authorised resellers.

Is there any insurance for sending camera and grip equipment by courier?
Depending on the selected shipping service and the type of article being transported, shipping insurance may be included in the price of the service. However, we recommend purchasing additional insurance when shipping more expensive items such as digital or analogic cameras, lenses, video equipment, and camera gear. To make sure the insurance is applicable for your device, it must be packed bt the manufacturer in its original packaging, keep the original invoice of your camera or video equipment since it serves as proof of its value. Please consider that the insurance may not apply when shipping used or second-hand electronic devices.
How should I pack camera lenses for shipping abroad?
To protect camera lenses while transportation, you need to pack them carefully. Wrap the lenses with bubble wrap and seal with tape. You can place the lenses in special soft bags or small boxes before placing into a shipping box. Add cushioning materials for extra protection. In the ends, shake the box a bit to make sure the lenses are immovable and safe.

Take into consideration these guidelines when shipping camera equipment overseas. Nevertheless, please consider that following them does not guarantee that the courier company will transport your package without restriction. In case you decide to ship used or second-hand camera and video equipment, Eurosender will not be held responsible for any damages caused by the transportation of your shipment.
