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.

I send my work worldwide on a regular…

I send my work worldwide on a regular basis and I now use Overland Express for all my shipping. It is great to get such a personal service, they are always quick to answer emails and you even get to talk to a real person on the phone, who knows what they are doing. It is also good to know the insurance they offer really works as the insurance offered by most of the big companies have so many restrictions and exemptions. I have used Overland Express many times and I am very happy with their service and would recommend them to anyone.

I have used Overland Express for 2…

I have used Overland Express for 2 years now. I use them to ship bass guitars which are a very large item and have found that they offer the best prices and a good choice of options.
But you only find out how good a company is when things go wrong. Recently there was an issue with a return to a shop, they had the item but due to a mix up within the shop the parcel was never booked in.
I would like to thank the guys at OE for the work you guys put in to help resolve this issue. With some shippers you can`t even speak to a real person never mind get someone to help you with a problem so having someone who you can e mail or speak to on the phone, helped resolve the issue with the shop.

Needed to send my late husband's guitar…

Needed to send my late husband's guitar plus accessories to a family member.
I've never used a carrier other than Royal Mail before and was a bit nervous. (The parcel was too large for Royal Mail and I'd been warned against using a certain other carrier.)
The Overland Express website gave very helpful advice on how to prepare the guitar and protect it for transit.
I found the firm's customer service to be excellent. I was worried because online tracking informed me that only one parcel had been delivered. I phoned and got an answer straight away. Tom (I think) checked online for me and was very reassuring.
The second parcel was indeed delivered later in the day.
