Sending a tent within the UK

We offer various services for next day tent delivery within the UK and have timed delivery options available, as well as the choice of dropping off at the post office, or one of the service points.

How to pack a tent for shipping

1. Ensure that the tent is clean and dry.
2. Lay the tent out, so that is flat on the ground and close any zips. Fold the tent from the outside inwards and then carefully roll up the tent. Once rolled up, it can be wrapped in either 2 or 3 layers of bubble wrap, or packed in its original bag.
3. For the groundsheet and flysheet, you can follow the same procedure.
4. The tent poles can be tied together and wrapped in bubble wrap.
5. Guy lines, pegs and ropes can be placed in a plastic bag.

Once everything is packed up, select a box large enough to hold everything and fill any voids with additional packaging materials, such as packaging peanuts or bubble wrap. Please use new cardboard boxes where possible, as they provide far better protection than used boxes. If using old boxes, please remove any labels that were previously attached. When you are happy with the packaging, seal the box closed and attach an address label. We will send you a parcel label to attach to the box also.

Simple to book, great value, very efficient

Shipping tyres is a nightmare, especially when trying to accurately measure them. Overland Express just ask you the size of wheel it goes on. Great value and simple to go through the ordering process. Will definitely use them again and not just for tyres.
