How to pack clothes for shipping overseas

Proper packaging is crucial when preparing clothes for shipping by a courier. To protect your clothes for transportation in the best way possible, follow these guidelines:

  • Fold the garments as flat as you can and in a shape that is easy to pack into a box.
  • Secure any loose parts. Detachable belts such as zips, larger buttons or any other embellishments should be either removed before sending or secured. You can wrap them in bubble wrap or place them in a plastic bag.
  • Add extra padding. Use the bubble wrap that will help prevent water damage. You can also use plastic bags or a padded envelope.
  • Put the wrapped clothing items into a box. When your clothes are neatly packed, you can add some extra padding to make your favourite T-Shirts and sweaters extra safe.
  • Seal the package.

Clothes are one of the items people ship the most. Here’s when:

FAQs on shipping clothes domestically and overseas

What is the cheapest way to ship clothes by courier?
The cheapest way to ship clothes by post or courier is by booking the standard service for European routes or express service when shipping overseas. Whether you are an online retailer, who wants to save costs when sending multiple packages of clothes to customers, or you are individual shipping clothes as a gift or to a holiday destination, choose the standard service and benefit from the lowest prices at the market.
How to weigh clothes for shipping if I don’t have a scale?
There are several things you can do to determine the weight of the clothes without scales. First of all, you can search for an approximate weight of a T-Shirt, jeans or a dress online. You can also ask a friend or a neighbour who might have a scale. Alternatively, there’s a way to weigh goods with the help of a clothes hanger. This blog article will explain in detail how to do it.
Can you mail a shirt in an envelope?

It is not recommended to ship clothes in an envelope, as it can be torn or damaged easily. With Eurosender’s envelope service you can only ship documents, letters, logistics peppers etc. To provide the proper packaging and protection of your apparel while in transit, you should send it in a cardboard box.

If you still decide to mail a t-shirt in an envelope, make sure to still book a package service (standard or express). For extra protection, place the clothes first in a plastic bag and pick a padded envelope.

What is the best way to send clothes when moving within Europe?
The most convenient way to ship clothes when moving is to book the van service. When moving across Europe, the best way to transport clothes, household items and other belongings, is to reserve a whole van solely to your needs. Your shipment will be transported directly to the destination point without stop-overs, and there will be no space shared with the belongings of any other customer.
Are designer garments covered by shipping insurance when sending via Eurosender?
The insurance that covers shipments of designer garments does not differ from standard insurance for any other clothing. Every shipment booked through Eurosender includes basic insurance whose coverage will depend on the type of service and items shipped. Options of additional insurance coverage are offered during the booking process.
How can I ship dancing costumes such as flamenco dresses by courier?
