Courier for speakers

Deciding which courier service to use when sending Hi-Fi speakers, can be daunting.

Before you send speakers with us, please have a read of our packing instructions, prior to sending.

You can view our packaging guide for Hi-Fi speakers below.

How to Send Hi Fi Speakers by Courier


Packing crate if applicable
Bubble wrap
Strong cardboard box
Parcel tape

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

When sending your valuable speakers by courier, there are several things to bear in mind.

If you are sending speakers by courier, the chances are that they are quite large and could be around 30kg, So, the chances of that being dropped at some point along the delivery chain, is quite high.

Ask yourself, that if it was dropped from waist height, would it be packed sufficiently to withstand the impact.

Most situations of damage are due to insufficient packaging.

For the majority of items, the manufacturer's cartons are sufficient to send speakers by courier. But if you are in any doubt, wrap them in additional layers of bubble wrap, or build a wooden crate to send your speakers in. Using polystyrene sheets on each face and between any items as dividers. Far better to be safe, than to argue with insurers over a damaged and possibly unreplaceable item. For speakers larger than bookshelf size, we recommend using separate boxes for each one.

If you are sending electrostatics, ribbon, or panel speakers, such as Martin Logan, Apogee etc, often a pallet is a better option, where your item can be held securely in place. When using a pallet, please ensure that the exposed sides are protected too, or better still, enclose them in a wooden crate. You will need to contact us for a price for sending a pallet, or speakers over 150 cm high.

Our additional insurance cover is 2.00% of the value of the component (subject to a minimum £10.00 charge). It covers all speakers, Hi-Fi and electrical items and the manufacturers packaging is sufficient (providing that it does not highlight that you are shipping a valuable item).

Seal the box with parcel tape and add additional tape to the seams and edges, so that the box is sealed in both directions. Finally, print off and attach your parcel label to the finished box.

Should you need a reputable courier for speakers, then take a look at Overland Express, to see how inexpensive we are.
