FAQs on shipping roof racks internationally and across the country

Can you ship a roof rack by post?

Yes. As there are many different size restrictions that should be met when using postal services, it may sometimes be hard to find relevant information regarding the acceptable dimensions. For example, the USPS ships bulky items of maximum 274cm in combined length and girth, while in the UK, these parameters should not exceed 90cm.

At Eurosender, we can offer several shipping options tailored to your needs. Use our size calculator and see immediately which service to use.
