How do I book “Online” and what are the costs?
For Parcels, simply complete our Quick Quote inputting the relevant information. The cost of the packaging materials has been built into the quotation, so whether you pack yourselves or whether we pack on your behalf the rate is the same. The only things not covered in the published rate is VAT, Customs Clearance Costs and any duties payable at the point of entry (normally for countries outside the EU). These costs can be allocated to the Consignee (point of delivery) by ticking the relevant box if you proceed to order. These costs will be paid in the local currency to the relevant Customs Department by the Consignee.
Do you use dry ice or any other hazardous material?
No, we never use dry ice for packing, it’s hazardous, expensive and often parcels are taken off flights because of its hazardous nature. Everything we use is recyclable, returnable and re-usable. Technical information can be sent to you upon request. We aim for 100% on time deliveries using our high end products which offer a genuine alternative to this Hazardous Class 9 product. Our parcels travel as normal everyday products, as we have effectively created a mini fridge / freezer in a box ,using environmentally friendly products which are handled by logistics staff and customs as if it were a box full of books.
Can I track my Parcel?
Yes, when you have booked, simply tick the box and input your email or mobile phone details. You will then receive the notifications of collection & delivery etc.
How do I describe my goods and are they insured?
