How to Send Computers by Courier
A cardboard box must be used for the outer packaging due to COVID-19 handling restrictions.
When you need to send a computer, select a suitable box to pack your laptop or computer in. Keyboards and ancillary equipment should be packed separately. Where possible, use the manufacturers packaging and enclose this in an additional box.
Securely tape the bottom of the box, with 2-3 layers of good quality parcel tape. Line the box with a minimum of 2 layers of bubble wrap, so the computer has a soft base to lie on.
Add corner protectors to the computer, these can be made from polystyrene, foam, or additional layers of bubble wrap. Wrap the laptop or computer with 2 additional layers of bubble wrap and secure with tape, before placing inside the box.
If you are enclosing a mouse, mains lead, charger, or cables in the same box, make sure that they are adequately protected and isolated from the computer, to prevent any possible damage or scratching. A layer of cardboard can be used between the items.
Once this has been completed, check for any voids, and fill with either packing peanuts, or additional bubble wrap. You can check that there are no voids by shaking the parcel from side to side, to check for any movement and adding additional packaging material if required. Once you are satisfied with the packing, tape the box securely, applying tape along the length and width of the box and finally, attach the parcel label and address label and any Customs paperwork if sending overseas.
If you are not using the original manufacturer's box, you will need to insert the packed computer into a larger box. Ideally, with 50 mm clearance on all sides. Always use new boxes, as they offer superior protection than a used box. Again, wrap the box in 2-3 layers of bubble wrap and secure in place using parcel tape, before inserting into the larger box. Again, fill any spaces with additional packing materials.
Once packed, secure the box with parcel tape, applied in both directions. When this is completed, print off and attach your parcel label.
If you are sending a computer outside of the United Kingdom, you will need to complete a commercial invoice for Customs clearance. We will provide you with all the necessary Customs paperwork, free of charge.

DHL, UPS, Parcel Force etc. - Enough said, we do not use budget courier service providers full stop. Having been in the parcel delivery industry for almost 30 years, we've seen the problems caused by these 'budget' provider's first hand.
Our DHL options utilise the Short Messaging Service (SMS) alerts to notify you (and the recipient if chosen) when your parcel is due to be delivered, yes, a bit old school now, however, very convenient as no apps are required to receive the notification.
