Pallet delivery is ideal for sending large pieces of furniture that cannot be disassembled or do not fit in a box. Recommendations on how to pack furniture for freight transport on a pallet.

  1. Put some cardboard on the pallet surface and place the item on the pallet.
  2. Remove any moving parts, wrap them individually in bubble wrap and place these in a well-protected cardboard box that should be later strapped to the pallet separately.
  3. Build a crate around the item or wrap it with foam wrap, moving blankets or some corrugated cardboard. Use stretch foil and adhesive tape to keep the protection in place. Make sure that the items are completely covered and securely loaded.

FAQ about shipping furniture domestically and abroad via courier

How much does it cost to ship furniture overseas?
The cost of the shipping service always depends on the distance between the pick-up and delivery destinations, the weight and size of the furniture you plan to ship internationally as well as the urgency and type of transport service selected.
To make things easier, we provide instant shipping quotes! Head to our booking engine to find out the cost for sending your furniture via courier.
What is the cheapest way to ship furniture overseas via courier?
The cheapest option for shipping furniture via courier is to dismantle the item and pack it in the most compact way possible.
This means your shipment will have less volume and, depending on size, can even be shipped with the Standard Service.
Can I book furniture door-to-door delivery?
Yes, you can arrange for a courier to collect your furniture directly at your address. All you have to do is select the most appropriate service to meet the shipment requirements and book the delivery through our platform.
If you are unsure which transport service you should choose, feel free to contact us via chat or email.

Where can I get the right packaging materials for packing my furniture for shipping?
All mentioned packaging materials can be found in stationery or hardware stores. If you are dismantling the furniture for shipping, you can use new or used cardboard boxes as long as they are in good condition.
Please consider the weight of the items when selecting your packaging materials to ensure your furniture is well protected for shipping. The cardboard box needs to be sturdy and all materials should be able to withstand heavy items.
Can I send multiple pieces of furniture on a pallet?
Yes. Freight shipments are very useful when shipping furniture, not only because they can withstand heavier loads, but because you can arrange the pallet to fit multiple items.
If the furniture is properly packed, you can transport multiple items at once using a pallet.
If you are transporting multiple pieces of furniture, we highly recommend booking a Van Service, which also means that you do not have to pack the items for shipping.
Is my furniture insured if I ship it domestically or internationally?
We never compromise when it comes to safety. Every shipment is covered by insurance, the value of which depends on the chosen service. You can purchase additional insurance at low rates during the ordering process to get extra protection for your furniture.
We recommend you keep the invoice of the items you are shipping to serve as a proof of value.
