Send Board Games, Books and Jigsaw Puzzles

It has been requested by some of our clients that we offer a service to post new or used board games, books and jigsaw puzzles to family members of friends.

You can use this service to send board games, books or jigsaw puzzles to family or friends to keep them occupied if they are unable to leave their house. These are not restricted items, therefore, you can send jigsaw puzzles, board games and books anywhere in the world.

This service is not just about board games, you may also send collectable figures and other such items.

As we only partner with industry leaders, when you send jigsaw puzzles, books and board games, they are insured against going missing or becoming damaged whilst in transit (exclusions apply).

A cardboard box must be used for the outer packaging due to COVID-19 handling restrictions.

We find that someone would generally use our courier for jigsaw puzzles, books and board games service when they have no further use for them and wish to donate them to family or friends.

Have a look at our 'Send a Parcel' tool, located above to see how much you can save when you send a board game or jigsaw puzzle with us.

Just ensure that before sending your board games or jigsaw puzzle that they are packaged correctly to prevent the boxes opening whilst in transit.
