Transport to Poland
Need a wardrobe whisked away to Warsaw? It can be difficult to know where to start when looking for couriers around Europe. There are lots of concerns that you may have when you need a transport to Poland: Are there hidden costs? How long will it take? What will the Polish customs say?
Don’t worry, private shipping within the EU is very common, so whether you’re moving house, need to transport a car or need any other deliveries to Poland then it could be easier, and cheaper, than you first thought!
Getting Things Ready for Your Polish Delivery
Getting your goods ready for transport to Poland is not that different from moving them domestically. Good care and attention is required when preparing your items to be shipped abroad as this will help prevent against any damage, alternatively you can have a delivery service pack your goods, which can be helpful for insurance purposes.
Inspecting your Items
Before you get your goods shipped or delivered you should ensure that you check over their condition.
Taking pictures can be very helpful in identifying whether or not damage has been incurred during transportation to Poland. These photographs will help in any insurance claims that you have to make in the unlikely event that your item is damaged during transportation.
Packing up your Delivery
Making sure that your packages are adequately protected when transported is the most vital preparation you can make before transporting them to Poland. Different goods will dictate different approaches to packing.
Closely packing items together with layers of packaging will help to offer the most protection for your delivery. Keeping everything in boxes also helps to avoid breakages to any edges.
Extra Costs When Shipping Abroad
Sending items to Poland will cost more than domestic deliveries – greater distances, shipping costs and toll roads can all impact upon your delivery costs. So make sure you think about these before committing to a Polish delivery. As long as you’re not transporting things for resale you should be able to avoid VAT too.
Choosing the Right Transport Service
When you need a delivery service to courier your items to Poland it can be difficult to know where to start.
Your first question should be: “what do I need delivering?” A piece of artwork is going to require more expertise to deliver than a desk! So it’s imperative that you decide what level of expertise your job will need before you start researching for delivery services.
Lots of items need a skillful touch to transport safely and it’s important to know ahead of time whether you will need a specialist courier to Poland service or whether a simple courier will be sufficient. Items that tend to require specialists:
- Cars and Motorcycles
- Antiques and artwork
- Perishables and food
A standard courier to Poland will be able to handle most delivery needs. Standard services also charge a lower rate than the specialists – with a general transport or removal company it’s important that you do some research to know what kind of services they offer.
Polish Transporters – What to Look out for
Once you know which kind of delivery company you’re going to employ to deliver your items, you need to do some research on your prospective candidate companies, here’s what to look out for:
Insurance: A transporter without goods in transport insurances is not a transporter. Basic courier insurance will protect the contents of a transport vehicle to the price of £10,000, enough for most deliveries.
Membership: Finding a trustworthy courier to Poland service can be as simple as recruiting one through a recognised association of delivery services. This isn’t to discourage you from independent couriers, but those with membership submit themselves voluntarily to stricter standards.
Feedback: Finding reviews of your prospective delivery companies can only be a good thing, knowing what other users think of them will give you the best indication as to whether they’re a legitimate service or not.
