All freight is restricted to 30kg per item with no overall restrictions per consignment. If the volumetric weight is greater than the actual weight you will be charged based on the volumetric weight. All goods must be well packaged and completely covered, as we will not transport items which are not packed properly.


Acceptable goods & packaging for carriage

All freight is restricted to a maximum of 30kgs per item, with no overall restrictions per consignment. We will not transport any freight over 2.05m in length (including packaging) through this service. As goods may travel through an extensive network system, all goods must be packaged so as to avoid damage both to themselves and to other consignments. Boxes should be taped shut in a way adequate to contain and support the weight of the goods inside. Avoid any sharp edges or corners which may damage other consignments or any person handling them. We will not transport any metals that are not completely wrapped. Any items with exposed bare metal will be refused until properly packaged. Fragile goods should be packed in layers of bubble wrap, polystyrene bobbles or similar in order to protect them from any impact they may receive in transport. The goods should also be clearly labeled with FRAGILE tape or stickers.
