Send Shaving Products Courier

Delivering aftershaves and shaving preparation's, is prohibited with most carriers. Overland Express have been sending aftershave, shaving soap, cream, razor's, and shaving supplies, for over 30 years.

We can send aftershave, shaving soap, shaving cream, safety razors, shaving brushes and all other shaving equipment (including sending male grooming products), throughout the UK on a secure road service. Our service is fully tracked and signed for, door to door, with the option to drop your parcel off at a local UPS access point.

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

To start saving huge sums of money on all of your perfume delivery requirements, please take a look at our great rates that are available through the 'Send Parcel' tool above. You will be surprised that the cost of sending perfume by courier is not expensive. We can only send perfume throughout the UK (Excluding Northern Ireland) and no longer to Europe.

We can only send your shaving equipment by road, as they are strictly prohibited to travel by air, due to the explosive nature of aftershave. Due to the hazardous nature of them, we can only send shaving products in limited quantities, with a maximum box size of 5kg, per consignment with UPS and 15kg with Parcel Force.

Please take some time to read through our packing advice, which can be found below, as we cannot insure aftershaves, due to the outer contents being made of glass. Take a little extra care when packing aftershaves and shaving equipment and they will arrive in perfect condition. We offer free cover up to £50.00, in the unlikely event of loss.

So whether you are sending aftershave to a loved one, as a birthday gift, or for Valentines day, choose Overland Express as your specialist courier for aftershave.

How to Send Shaving Products by Courier


Bubble wrap
Parcel tape
Strong cardboard box
Packing peanuts

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

Aftershaves and shaving equipment are very popular items for the well-groomed gentleman, but before sending aftershaves, there are a few points to consider. They are generally hazardous and are highly flammable, with most containing a mixture of alcohol and essential oils. Because of this highly flammable and potentially explosive nature, they can only be transported in limited quantities, on our road service, throughout the UK.

When sending aftershave and shaving equipment, please ensure that they are correctly packaged for transit. As the containers are made of glass, they are very fragile and can be damaged if not packaged correctly. When packing them, use the original box where possible and wrap them in an additional 2 to 3 layers of bubble wrap, before placing them into a larger box. If you are sending more than one aftershave in the same box, leave adequate space between the items. Any voids within the box can be filled with additional bubble wrap, or polystyrene packaging peanuts. Once packed inside the outer box, shake the items around, to check for any movement. If you can hear the items moving around, please add additional packaging materials. The idea is that the items should be sufficiently packed, to withstand them accidentally being dropped.

When you are happy with the packaging, please close the box and seal securely with 2 to 3 layers of strong parcel tape. All that is required now, is to attach your Overland Express parcel label.

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.
