OUR SHIPPING OPTIONS
Use the following instructions for packing various glass products such as glassware, bottles, framed art, etc.
Relocating with our Van Delivery Service is the easiest way to transport small or big glass products together with other belongings. Even though there are no packaging restrictions when booking this service, we still recommend protecting the goods with cushioning when shipping glass items, as follows:
When shipping flat items such as a glass mirror, it is of utmost importance that you adequately protect the surface. Make an “X” with a strong adhesive tape going from corner to corner of the mirror. The tape will help to make sure the mirror will stay intact during moving. This procedure is also recommended when packing a painting or any other glass item that has a big flat surface.
The most recommended service for shipping glass items is the Van Delivery Service because you will have the entire space of the vehicle dedicated solely to you. Since this service also offers direct transport, it has a higher degree of safety since your items will not be loaded and loaded during transit. The Van Delivery Service is most recommended for relocations but can also be used for transporting multiple or bulky items. If your items are small and you choose to send them using another service, we recommend carefully packing your items according to our instructions above.
When packing glassware for shipping, we recommend using cardboard boxes. You can use new or second-hand boxes, as long as they are in good shape, without holes or scratches. Make sure the box is strong enough to withstand your glass item during transit. When shipping glass bottles or cups, you may prefer to use a box that is made for this type of item, with internal divisions that guarantee the bottles are not in contact with each other.
Companies that sell alcoholic beverages and need to send big loads of glass bottles should opt to ship them using our pallet delivery. Freight transport is a very safe alternative for shipping bottles because they can easily be stacked.
Individuals who wish to ship one or two glass bottles might prefer to ship them together with other items in a box. Many people send a bottle of wine, along with clothes and personal belongings when moving abroad. In such cases, you can use your clothes and other soft items as cushioning for the bottle inside the box. Alternatively, you can also use bottle cardboard boxes as they have the exact size and offer excellent protection.
When shipping glass products by courier, here are the most common materials people use to pack glass items properly:
Take into consideration these guidelines when shipping glass. 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 any glass item, Eurosender will not be held responsible for any damages caused by the transportation of your shipment.
