What happens if the customer indicates the wrong weight and dimensions for shipping?
If the shipment size exceeds the parameters indicated during the order process, the following three scenarios may take place:
The courier company representative may refuse to collect the parcel or pallet exceeding the established weight limits and dimensions for the shipping service booked by the client.
Even if the pick-up takes place and the shipment arrives at the courier company’s depot, it may be sent back to the collection address. As a result, it will cause delivery delays and no refund will be granted to the sender, as he bears the sole responsibility for checking the shipment size and weight prior to ordering the service.
Extra fees can apply if the pick-up and delivery of an oversized or overweight package take place. According to the courier companies’ rules, such surcharges may occur even after the order completion. If you are unsure about the restrictions regarding parcel sizes and weight when booking your shipments through the Eurosender platform, contact our Customer Support team.
Insurance included in the price of every shipment!
Every shipment organised through our platform is covered by basic insurance. To ensure optimal coverage for your items, we also provide additional insurance formulas, which can be added to your shipment during the order process.
