How it works

Your parcel can weigh up to 25kg and must be no bigger than: 120cm (l) x 80cm (w) x 80cm (h). It's that simple!

How your parcel is priced


Whether you choose to use our express or economy service, the size and weight of your parcel affects how much your parcels will cost.

Express (2-3 days*) Vs Economy (3-4 days*)


We ship to many European countries by road (Economy) or air (Express) which means we’re able to offer you cheaper and faster alternatives. For all worldwide destinations we offer an Express air service.

Volumetric weight


The volumetric weight of a parcel is: its length x width x height in centimetres (cm) divided by 5000.

If your parcel's volumetric weight exceeds the actual weight of your parcel then you’ll be charged the volumetric weight price. All you need to do is enter the correct weight and dimensions of your parcel into our quick quote or booking form and we’ll work it all out for you.
*Timings may vary depending on the distance from the UK and remoteness of the country.
