How to send rugs
guide to shipping rugs
Can I send a rug with ?
Yes, in theory. But there are a few recommendations you need to look at before booking to send a rug with us.
What so I need to know befoe sending?
You need to consider if the size of the rug you are sending is suitable for domestic parcel services. Of course, when we purchase rugs online from stores, they are delivered to us, but this is not done by domestic parcel services but rather the stores own delivery service.
Parcelforce Large does offer a service for larger and heavier parcels. But this service does have a limit of 30kg.
If the rug you are wishing the send via parcel courier is an antique or of particular high value it may not be covered by courier insurance. You must check the couriers compensated list before sending to check if the rug you are sending is listed.
How to package a rug
Rolling up a rug is the best way to get the rug to be as small as possible without compromising the item.
We recommend wrapping the rug in bubble wrap to give it extra protection during its courier journey.
All of the parcel delivery services we offer from couriers only accept the shipments of parcels inside parcel boxes. Because of this if the rug does not fit inside a parcel box unfortunately you will have to look into other options for delivery. Contact us directly for advise.
We do not recommend using narrow electrical tape, clear Sellotape, or washi tape when securing your parcel.
Once the rug is securely inside the parcel box make sure to secure the parcel box with strong brown parcel tape.
Make sure when attaching the label it is clear to see and not wrapped around parcel box. This is to ensure the barcode can be accurately scanned by the courier.
