Frequently Asked Questions
What size box should I get to ship my game console?
Ideally, you should use the original box. For extra protection, you can place this box, after it is properly packed, in a more resistant cardboard box. Try to pick a slightly bigger box than its content so that you can still add some cushioning materials.
Can I ship a PS4 or an Xbox console by plane?
Yes, shipping PS4 and Xbox game consoles by air is the fastest way of delivery. With Eurosender, you can book the express shipping service, and your shipment will be delivered by air in the shortest time possible.
Can I ship a Nintendo switch by plane?
Both business and individuals can send Nintendo switch by plane. To ship a Nintendo game console by air, we recommend keeping the battery in, preferably not fully charged.
Can I take a game console on the plane when travelling?
When you are travelling by plane with a carry on luggage only, then we recommend keeping the console somewhere easy to reach. The security will ask you to take your Xbox, Nintendo Switch or PS5 out of your carry-on luggage when passing through the scanner. Once you go past security, you can wrap it around with the rest of your clothes for cushioning.
