Unfortunately not. Batteries pose a hazard to the employees at our courier partners, and other parcels in transit. Batteries can not be shipped internationally, this will often simply mean your package is returned. All parcels being shipped internationally are checked and scanned so it is not worth even trying to send any item with a battery contained inside.
Although many battery retailers send batteries via either traditional mail services or non-specialised couriers, we believe the risks are too great to allow them to be sent via our courier system.
Specialised battery shops are expert at packaging batteries and have direct relationships via courier companies and hence are fully aware of all the legal and operational restrictions of sending batteries by post or courier.
However, we cannot guarantee how our customers will package their batteries before they arrange collection, and therefore we prohibit their transit through our partners' courier networks.
If you are sending toys or electronics, ensure batteries are removed before you ship the item.
Of course, many motorcycles and cars use lead acid batteries which when shipped second-hand may still have some of the liquid contained within - which would prohibit their transportation on that basis alone.
However, in our list of prohibited items we specifically state that batteries are forbidden to be shipped via us - and that includes any type used for any purpose.
This means that car batteries, personal batteries, UPS, sat nav, barcode scanners, camera batteries, etc. aren't allowed.
