Parcel prices by size and weight

All parcels booked via our courier quote system have to have their volumetric weight calculated.

A very small item that weighs 25kg may not cost the same to ship as a big 5kg parcel.

We can only give indicative weight limits. If you’re looking to send parcels that are 1kg, 2kg, 3kg, 5kg and 10kg you should be fine. Even parcels that are 12kg and heavy items such as boxes of books at 20kg should, generally, be no problem.

It is crucial to remember, couriers price their services based on volumetric weight so you will need to provide not only the weight of your item but all the dimensions. Our crafty quote engine will then do the hard work, calculate the correct price for your parcel with the couriers we offer, even if you are sending something tricky like wheels.
