Send Long Parcel

Shipping long items around the UK or world is not easy. Many carriers are set up with automated sortation machinery that restricts the length of items that can be automatically handled. Hence, they add prohibitive charges or simply refuse to move items that do not fit with their infrastructure.

That is where Courierpoint comes to your rescue. As we work with a wide range of domestic and international carriers, once you enter your details into our courier quote tool we will provide you with all the options from the carriers that we work with for moving your specific item.

Cheap Long Item Delivery

Once we know the size, weight and destinations that you would like to send to, our system will only quote services that can accept the size and weight of your shipment. That way you know that whichever service you select for your domestic or international parcel delivery, it will meet your needs. Services range from accepting individual parcels up to 65 kilos in weight, through to long palletised items with a maximum weight of 1000 kg.


How To Send A Long Parcel

We can collect long parcels from your home, warehouse or office and will always send the appropriate vehicle

  1. Pack or palletise your long parcel securely so that it can cope with the transit without incurring damage
  2. Take accurate measurements of your packed long parcel including length, width and height in centimetres
  3. Record an accurate weight for your packed parcel in kilos
  4. Enter the size and weight information into our cost calculator
  5. Select a service and place an order for your collection
  6. Print off your shipping labels and any customs documents
  7. Attach these with a shipping label holder to the parcel. If you do not have one, ask the driver on collection to give you one.
  8. Give your parcel to the collection driver

Top Tip: Once you have printed out the shipping label and attached it on the box, take a photo of the parcel with the label on and with a tape measure showing the sizes measured. Do the same on scales to show the weight. This is to ensure that you have evidence of the size and weight of the parcel sent, that you can use to dispute a carriers record if found different.


Posting Long Parcel

Posting long parcels around the UK or internationally can be very expensive. However, through Courierpoint you can get huge discounts on the cost of posting items. We have discounted next day delivery services as well as cheap European delivery options. All of which are substantially cheaper than sending long parcels over ten kilos with Royal Mail. We also have the option to use drop off points for additional convenience, if you parcel is under 15 kilos in weight. You also have the option to pay for an upgrade and get next morning delivery for certain delivery areas.


Shipping Long Parcels Internationally

Sending long parcels around the UK or internationally with Courierpoint is easy. Our European road services can take individual parcels up to 65 kilos in weight or up to 1000 kg if palletised. Perfect for sending to France, Spain or Germany. These services provide a cheap and cost-efficient way to send long parcels worldwide. We also offer air freight and sea freight options for moving bulk orders around, where our standard parcel services do not meet your requirements. 


What Long Items Can I Send?

We have moved thousands of long parcels for clients, both domestically and internationally. These have included car parts, luggage, alloy wheels, to computer equipment. However large or long your parcel is, just enter details of your requirements in our cost calculator and we are confident that we will have the right service for you.
