Got a query? Here are some of the frequently asked questions that might help you.
Items or containers with any form of liquid are strictly prohibited. Sending a gearbox or engine is very tricky. It is vital that no oil or fuel is left in it and that the part is cleaned and packed properly.
Aside from liquids, batteries are also prohibited. To avoid any headaches, try not doing so or your parcel will be returned or held. You are allowed to send tires but they should be deflated and removed to the alloy because pressurized items including airbags are strictly prohibited.
Items containing glass are also prohibited, as the glass is not suitable to send via a courier network, meaning windscreens are not suitable or doors with glass as well. Car lights are okay but these will be sent on a non-compensation basis.
There are a lot of various ways to pack car parts, as we all know; they are made of different shapes and sizes. There is an option to send them on a pallet because this is more likely a safe way to carry your goods.
Next, we will tackle the guidelines for the most common car parts posted that require certain packaging practices. You can visit our packaging guide for normal car parts packaging not included.
The most frequently sent car parts are wiper blades. This type of car part is very lightweight but long. It can be sent in any of our UK courier services, or internationally because even when they are boxed up there is just a minimal to no weight on them.
On the other hand, it is very crucial to send headlights or instrument displays but if you’re posting these items you will need to pack them very cautiously. Use a solid and sturdy box on packing these then add further protection by wrapping the fragile sides with more cardboard. Wrap it in bubble wrap and make sure it is firmly safe in the box.
Just a reminder, we do not offer protection cover for glass items as it was included on our restricted list.
Aside from headlights and displays with glass components, bodywork is another part you have to pack extremely well. Do not simply cover it in bubble wrap because you need have to protect the structure; bumpers, grilles, and trim, for instance, can be damaged by bending them.
A steeled box is the finest packaging for these items. If this box is not available, alternatively, use cardboard and a lot of soft packaging and make sure to put specific care to the edges and corners, as these can poke through.
Heavy items like engines, gearboxes, and axles are somehow accepted by some of our partner couriers. Packaging these items, you will certainly need to find a durable and strong crate or wooden pallet because no courier can provide this.
If your item is over a certain weight, we will ask in the booking process if the goods are to be moved on a pallet, and if so this will be noted on the order and the courier will provide a pump truck to load the vehicle.
Clearly, a specialist courier service is needed for this kind of delivery, and there will be specific necessities for packaging and collection that is why you need to keep this in mind when ordering.
Sending wheels and tires can be quite heavy. Just a piece of advice, place the wheels on different boxes because packing them all four together is not appropriate and it is more likely to cause damages.
Separate strong and durable boxes and internal packaging is needed to avoid dents. A reminder as we, tires can be sent but should be deflated.
Parcello offers protection covers for free, up to a certain value on some of our services and you can opt-in for this during the booking process.
Nonetheless, for costly items we recommend you extend the cover just in the event that the item is damaged or lost in transit with the courier. Think of that your packaging must be acceptable and your item must not be included on the prohibited or restricted items list.
