Service for packing and posting abroad

Recommended Posts

Are there any businesses that will pack and facilitate sending something abroad via a courier? Not as a regular thing and as a private client not running a business, just occasional stuff?


We used a useful broker to send something to our apartment in Bulgaria but we found the packing difficult. We had to bag / shrink wrap the items the double box them in thick cardboard. It was very difficult to source the correct boxes required to do the job.


We sent them via courier rather than take them as luggage due to insurance. Airlines are would not sufficiently insure the items. In that instance, they were only curtains, nothing valuable to anyone else and not fragile. They were made to measure floor to ceiling so cost more per kilogramme that the airlines would insure passenger luggage for.


I'm thinking about packing of breakable items too, nothing particularly valuable.
