Weights and Dimensions
If you want to send a parcel, an envelope or a pallet with Sendparcelnow.com, you must make sure you follow our rules in relation to weight and packaging dimensions.
You can send a parcel with maximum weight of 50kg. If your parcel exceeds the weight limits, you will need to opt for our send pallet option. It’s important to pay attention to the overall dimensions of your parcel which must not exceed 3m. Before you fill your online form in make sure you weight your parcel and calculate the sides to make sure they don’t exceed limits.
The weight declared during the booking must correspond to reality. Every parcel mustn’t exceed 30kg for standard parcels.
We remind you that if the volumetric weight is higher than the actual weight of the parcel that you have indicated, the volumetric weight will be considered to process the shipping rate.
To calculate the volumetric weight of a parcel to be sent, you must perform the following calculation:
(L1/100) x (L2/100) x (L3/100) x 250
Each side mustn’t exceed 2m.
The following formula allows you to calculate dimensions and measures of your parcel:
[ (L+P) x 2 ] + H < 300 cm
H stands for the height of the parcel.
L and P stand for width and depth respectively.
If the parcel exceeds 3m you will be charged extra, depending on the dimensions:
- From 300 to 310 cm additional charge £ 15,00
- From 311 to 320 cm additional charge £ 25,00
- From 321 to 330 cm additional charge £ 50,00
Limits of shape
The parcel shape must be uniform (such as a cube, a parallelepiped or a cylinder). No protrusions, lumps or bumps.
