How to Send a Large Parcel to Northern Ireland
If you plan to send a large parcel to Northern Ireland, you need to consider a couple of details. First of all, you need to provide the exact measurements of your parcel: length, width (cm) and weight (kg). Secondly, you should pack it properly so your item will not be damaged during transit. It is good to purchase Packlink insurance that will cover the cost of damage, partial or total shipment loss.
You can send a parcel on a pallet or in a box, and it is always good to add extra protection. Your item can be wrapped into foam or bubble sheets so it won't move inside. If your item is on a pallet, then attach it tightly and wrap it if needed. And if you plan to send a bike, musical instrument, glass bottle, make sure to check how it needs to be packed correctly.
Depending on the weight of your item, make sure to choose durable materials. If you are unsure if the box can handle the weight, you can pack the item into an additional box.
An excellent way to check if your item is packed well and secure is to shake it, and if there is no movement inside, it is good to go. Remember to close the package firmly, so it doesn't open and drop your item during parcel transit.
Another thing to remember is the label because you should stick it in a visible place so that the courier can scan the code printed on it. If the courier notices that the package is not packed correctly or it is missing the label, there is a chance that they will not accept your parcel, or it may get lost.
