GUIDELINES FOR MAILING BULKY & HEAVY ITEMS

SECURE PACKAGING

The importance of good packaging can't be overstated. Use the original packaging whenever possible as it is likely designed specifically to protect the items. If not available, sturdy boxes of appropriate size should be used. For large appliances, custom-built boxes made from thick, reinforced cardboard can be considered

CLEAR LABELLING

Clear labelling can expedite the shipping process. Include the shipping address, contact information, special handling instructions, and the weight of the shipment on all sides of the boxes. This is especially important when shipping large, fragile items.

REGULATORY COMPLIANCE

Abiding by international shipping regulations and customs requirements is crucial for a seamless delivery process. Our Heavy Shipment Service takes into account the specific laws and customs rules of your destination country. We stay updated on the dynamic global shipping regulations, ensuring your items adhere to all legal requirements to circumvent potential hold-ups.

HADDITIONAL TIPS FOR SHIPPING FURNITURE & LARGE APPLIANCES

  • Disassembly: Disassemble the furniture as much as possible. This can reduce the chances of damage during transit and also makes packing and transportation easier.
  • Packing materials: Use durable, strong packing materials to prevent damage during shipping.
  • Contents labelling: Apart from the shipping label, also label boxes with the contents and destination address.

Shipping large and heavy items doesn't have to be a daunting task. With a little preparation and DHL Express' Heavy Shipment Service, you can ensure a smooth and safe journey for all your large and bulky packages. Rely on us for your heavy shipment needs and enjoy peace of mind knowing your items are in good hands.
