FAQs about shipping ceramics internationally

What is the safest way to ship ceramics and pottery internationally?

The safest way to ship this kind of items is to create a shock-resistant packaging. To do so, we recommend using multiple cardboard boxes, a generous amount of crumpled paper, bubble wrap and packing peanuts. You can use the Fragile warning tape all over the package. Be aware that the courier company is not obliged to take such warnings into consideration when handling your parcel, so packaging is everything when it comes to ceramics, fine or bone china delivery. Do not leave any empty spaces inside and around the items you are sending. Another important tip is not to pack ceramics too tightly for shipping, as it can only increase the pressure inside the parcel, and thus, the risk of damage will be higher.

What is the best transportation method for shipping multiple oddly shaped ceramic items?

If you are planning to ship large amounts of fine ceramics or art pottery internationally, we can provide you with a tailored offer based on your specific needs. If you are shipping multiple oddly shaped ceramic intend to send antique or valuable ceramic and porcelain items across the country or abroad, the safest solution would be to opt for dedicated van delivery.

Is there any insurance for sending ceramics internationally by courier?

Most courier companies consider ceramics as fragile items. For this reason, it is of the utmost importance that you pack such items accordingly to avoid any kind of damage, as insurance will most likely not apply.

Take into consideration these guidelines when shipping ceramics, bone china or fine china dinnerware. Nevertheless, please consider that following them does not guarantee that the courier company will transport your package without restriction. If any damages occur, the insurance will not cover the costs of these damages.

In case you decide to ship ceramics, Eurosender will not be held responsible for any damages caused by the transportation of your shipment.
