THINGS TO CONSIDER
If you are looking for the cheapest way to ship packages with odd shapes or sizes, Eurosender offers some of the most affordable rates, matching you with an ideal logistics service for your requirements.
You can select “bulky items” in the booking tool and enter the details of your shipment. For non-standard or special requests, you can request a custom offer, and our logistics team will contact you in the shortest possible time with a quote for shipping odd-sized or odd-shaped objects.
Depending on the irregular item you are shipping, we recommend using either a shipping pallet or an appropriately sized, sturdy cardboard box as packaging.
Pallets offer stability and easy manoeuvrability for transporting heavy items.
You can use a strong cardboard box to ship lightweight items without their original packaging. However, if you are unable to locate an appropriate box for transporting your irregular shaped item, you can also use a pallet.
Oddly-shaped shipments with sharp or spikey edges should be placed in a cardboard box first, before securing it to a pallet. This is important to prevent damage or injury.
For long objects such as skis, golf clubs or rolled carpets, you can follow these packing guidelines:
