FAQ on the best way to send heavy parcels abroad
What is the cheapest way to ship heavy boxes?
If you have one heavy box of up to 30 kg and up to 70 kg for specific routes, we recommend using the standard shipping service as the cheapest way to ship your heavy box to another location.
If you have one box to send that is heavier than this, we recommend you place it on a pallet, and our tool will automatically calculate the cost to ship your heavy items to the desired destination.
However, if you have multiple heavy parcels, we would recommend you the Van delivery service. With this service, you get the van dedicated to your load only, and it will go directly from the pickup to the delivery address, with no stop-overs. Not only this is the least expensive way to ship your heavy items, but also, it is the fastest way to have them delivered to another European destination.
What is the best way to send heavy packages to another location?
The Van delivery service is the best option to send your heavy parcels to any country in Europe. What makes this service premium without a doubt is the safety during travel. The van is loaded with your goods only and travels from and to the destination countries you request for.
We also organise heavy parcel delivery, worldwide! Our Express delivery service is the best fit for packages up to 70 kg!

Do I get insurance included in the price if I choose the cheapest way to ship my heavy boxes?
Yes! With Eurosender, you get insurance included within the price you pay for most of our shipping services. For more details on insurance per service, we invite you to follow this link.
How will the courier collect and deliver my heavy parcel?
It depends on the service, but in general, the driver comes with the vehicle and you can then load the parcels onto it. With some of our services, you can request help from the driver for loading and unloading or handling equipment. Talk your options with our experts upon booking!
What happens if parcels are heavier for the delivery than I thought?
Additional charges will most likely apply to shipments that exceed the dimensions, weight or number of parcels stated in the ordering process. You can:
- Inform us by 12 pm one business day before collection, and we will make the necessary adjustments and inform the courier; or,
- Pay an additional surcharge if the shipment exceeds the maximum size and weight allowed by the selected service provider upon the parcel scanning at the provider’s warehouse.
If you cannot inform us prior to collection, please be aware that the courier may refuse to collect or return your parcel. Insurance does not apply to shipments that exceed the stated amount.
Where I can get a pallet for my international heavy parcel delivery?

How to best prepare the pallet to send heavy parcels?

I have many packages to send. What will be the cost to ship multiple heavy items?
It depends on how many packages you plan to send. If you have only a few, Eurosender offers you a multi-parcel delivery service or the Van delivery service. You can get an instant quote in the booking tool for any EU destination!
