General advice for a courier delivery of spare helicopter parts and aircraft parts
- Never leave the pick-up address on pick-up day.
There has to be someone present at the delivery address. So, when you are leaving the address, make sure that there is someone to replace you, or order the pick-up 2 working days before your scheduled departure date. Watch our detailed instruction video about all features of the pick-up and delivery procedures.
- Cover your shipment with adequate insurance.
At Eurosender, each and every shipment is covered by our Standard Insurance up to €200. However, we recommend taking extra insurance with valuable things. Read more about which insurance matches your shipment best.
- To label or not to label?
In most European countries, the courier company prints and attaches the label for you. However, when the pick-up address is in Sweden, Poland or Spain, you will have to print and attach the label by yourself. Before you hand over your shipment to the courier, be sure that you do not have any forbidden items inside.

We recommend you keep the original invoice of your helicopter and aircraft spare parts, especially if you intend to ship it in the future. The invoice serves as a proof of its value and is, therefore, a document that the courier companies normally require if you start a claim procedure following your spare parts shipping.
