What Liquid Can You Ship?
Before you ship your liquids, you should be aware of the kinds of liquids that we can accept. While you can ship oil and alcoholic items such as beer or wine, other substances that contain alcohol might not be accepted. This is due to liquids like paints and vapes being flammable and so they can cause problems on the journey.
You’ll also want to avoid shipping any items that will cause harm to the courier including bleach or gasoline. If you have any questions about what kind of liquids you can ship, get in touch and we’ll be happy to help.
Packing Your Liquids
If you do decide to ship your liquids, you’ll need to make sure that you pack them correctly. Firstly, you’ll want to make sure that the liquid has a double seal so that we can minimise the risk of it spilling anywhere. This is usually done by adding an extra layer of plastic around the lid. Strong tape can also work here.
After that, you should put the liquid in a polystirene box or, if the liquids are in to a containers that not fit in to a polystyrene box, you can wrap them with bubblewrap and then put them in a cardboardbox with polystyrene sheets. You can find these packaging materials also online by clicking here. Make sure that the box has been sealed properly. Once it is packed up, you can get started on booking your parcel delivery.
