Sending heavy goods is not as simple as popping into the post office to send a letter. But arranging a large item courier can be a simple process when you know what you need to move and are able to plan ahead.

Depending on what you need to move you may need to make special preparations for transportation.

Something like fridge freezer transportation requires that you empty, drain and clean it as well as disconnecting it from the electrics and even emptying it of gas; whereas a large piece of furniture like a sofa might require minimal preparation but will need multiple people to move and install.

Before hiring a large item delivery service there are a few things to consider:

Packing: If you’re moving something fragile, make sure that you adequately protect it from external shocks, bubble wrap and boxes are all widely available (and you can sometimes get them for free from local supermarkets, which are only going to recycle old packaging).

You can also improvise packing materials from old newspapers or towels, but bear in mind that if you are using old papers that the ink could potentially stain the item.

Timeframe: Having an idea when you want your item picked up and delivered will help greatly in getting quotes from transport companies. The more complex your delivery, the nature of the item and the distance will all play a factor in the amount of time it will take to get quotes and complete the delivery.

Condition: Documenting the condition of the appliance/item prior to having it delivered can help you notice if received damage in transit when it arrives. If you’re buying an item on eBay ask the seller to do this (taking photos is a good idea too).
