Frequently asked questions about shipping tables
across country and internationally

How to pack a table when ordering a removals service with Eurosender?
When moving house within Europe, the fastest and most cost-effective solution is to book a dedicated van service. This way, you won’t need to package your tables on pallets or boxes, as the entire space is dedicated to your shipment only, to be transported directly to any destination in Europe. When preparing your items for a van delivery, we simply recommend to pack smaller items into padded boxes and protect your larger tables with moving blankets and foam cushioning to prevent damage during transport.
Can I arrange assistance for loading and unloading tables and furniture with a dedicated van service?
Yes, you can request assistance to help you move tables into your dedicated van for an additional fee. To book, simply select this option during the booking process.
Can I transport a table from IKEA or Voga?
Yes. Eurosender can arrange transport for shipping tables and chairs from Ikea,Voga or other retailers. For instructions on how to ship a table from IKEA or Voga, please see our dedicated pages.
Do I need to place tables on pallets for transport?
We certainly recommend to pack tables and chairs on pallets for shipping, as pallets provide much more stability and protection during transport. This will depend on their weight and size as well. Pallets are a great way to transport multiple pieces when shipping a pool table, coffee table or any other table which is unable to be disassembled and packed into boxes. Simply follow our guidelines above, and for more detailed packing instructions for pallet shipping, please see our dedicated page.
How to pack a glass table top for moving?
If your table has a delicate glass top, we highly recommend to pack this separately, and to use plenty of foam cushioning and bubble-wrap to prevent damage during transport. For more detailed guidelines on shipping glass items, please see our dedicated page.
