Finding a reliable courier for your DJ equipment can be difficult, as most carriers do not offer full cover for audio or electronic equipment. At Overland Express we have our own insurance to fully cover you against loss or damage in transit. From Allen and Heath to Pioneer and Yamaha, we have you covered, whatever you are shipping. Our insurance covers turntables too.
We can ship DJ controllers, multimedia DJ players, mixers, turntables, CDJ players, speakers, lighting, Projectors, amplifiers, all in one system's, microphones, PA systems and pretty much anything else.
Our DJ equipment delivery service is competitively priced and we work with the World's best carriers and due to our buying power, we can offer you lower rates than going to the carrier directly. To get an instant quote, simply enter your details in the quote tool above. If you do not have the post codes, you can use mainland post codes to get a price. The prices quoted may vary slightly to some of the remote Scottish Highlands post codes.
If you require any advice on shipping CDJ players, mixers, or anything else, we can be contacted via phone, email, or live chat during working hours.
We have over 30 years experience in shipping DJ equipment, so you can rest assured that your valuable equipment is in safe hands
Sending DJ equipment within the UK
We offer many different options for UK delivery, depending on the urgency and the weight and size, there are also have various drop off options and timed deliveries available. All of our services are fully tracked, door to door. Full tracking details are sent to you at the time of booking by email, together with the parcel labels and full instructions.
International delivery of audio equipment
We can ship to over 220 Countries Worldwide, including road services throughout Europe. Please be aware that the receiver will probably be liable for duty on arrival in the destination Country. This only applies to goods sent outside of the UK mainland.
The process is much the same as shipping in the UK, the only difference is that a commercial invoice is required and you will need to enter the relevant HS codes (commodity codes) for the items being shipped, plus the values.
A cardboard box must be used for the outer packaging due to COVID-19 handling restrictions.
All customs paperwork is provided free of charge and is generated automatically during the booking process.
How to pack DJ equipment for shipping
Ideally you should use the manufacturers original packaging where possible. If you no longer have this, a strong double walled cardboard box should be sufficient. Always use new packaging, as used boxes offer reduced protection. When selecting a box, choose one that is a minimum of 50mm larger than the item in each direction, this allows for plenty of packing material to be added.
International delivery of audio equipment
Please pack any plugs or cables separately, to avoid any damage to the item. They can go in the same box, just ensure that sufficient space is left, to avoid any possible contact with the item.
Tape the bottom of the box closed with 2-3 layers of strong parcel tape. Once secured, Line the base of the box with several layers of bubble wrap. Use corner protectors where possible and then wrap the item in 2 to 3 layers of bubble wrap, the larger bubble type offers greater protection. If you do not have corner protectors, these can be made from foam, polystyrene, or additional bubble wrap.
Once wrapped, place the item inside the box and fill any gaps with packaging peanuts or additional bubble wrap. Shake the box from side to side to check for any movement and add more packing material if needed. Once you are happy with the packing, add a further 2 layers of bubble wrap on top of the item before sealing the box closed. We strongly suggest placing the box into another slightly larger box, to provide further protection. Again, add more packing material to fill any voids.
If using a metal flight case for controllers etc, please wrap the case in cardboard. This avoids any potential damage to the case and any problems with refused collections, due to sharp edges. If using a soft case, or DJ bag, please pack it into a larger cardboard box, with adequate packing materials surrounding the case. For shipping vinyl records, consider something like the Power Dynamics range of cases. Again, place this in a larger external cardboard box, with packing materials to hold the case securely in place.
If you are insuring the item, please take a couple of photos that show how the item was packed.
Shipping insurance for DJ equipment
Our optional insurance offers full cover against loss or damage in transit, up to a maximum value of £20,000.00. If sending turntables, they must be in the original manufacturers packaging. This is not required for anything other than turntables.
When using a manufacturers box, please place the parcel into a slightly larger outer box, or wrap in cardboard. This is to obscure any easily identified markings that would indicate the value of the item.
Our additional insurance is charged at 2.00% of the value and is available once you have selected your chosen carrier.
