Sending car seats of all shape and size is easy when you can compare the best deals on courier services. Even if your item is heavy, big or bulky we can find you a cost effective way to send it.
We have discounted rates for sending used car parts and automotive spares such as heavy car seats through DX Freight, Tuffnells and Parcelforce. Get the item collected from your home or work address, get access to the tracking so you can follow it to delivery and share this with the recipient too so that they know when the goods are due to arrive.
Of course you might be selling childrens car seats, and these may be small enough to be sent via our other courier services too as they are considerably smaller. This type of item is often sold on eBay, Facebook Marketplace and Gumtree, so we provide all the tracking you need to keep the customer happy and you can add protection cover to your order too.
We can only give an indication of some generic sizes; yours are most certainly going to be different. However, a parcel containing a child seat that is 8kg in weight and 60cm x 90cm x 60cm would cost £29.99 + VAT for a ParcelForce 48 service within the UK. It is really easy to get a price for your car seat, just package it up ready to ship to your eBay or Gumtree customer, then weigh it and measure it and put those details into the quote engine.
Many customers use Parcel Monkey to return items back to the retailer too.
Often the hardest part of sending products via a courier or parcel delivery company is knowing what the weight of your item is. You may have a printed guide that comes with your child safety seat so check that first. Alternatively, if you have purchased it from Amazon, you can sometimes find the details on their website. Most seem to be in the 5kg to 6kg so you could use that as a guide for when you're searching.
Bulky boxes that the items are delivered in are often thrown away, and with baby seats being as big and bulky as they are this is often the case so you may need to get hold of a large box to package the seat in. Better still if you do have the box, use that and pad it out with as much packaging as you can to ensure your parcel child seat is delivered in perfect condition.
Once you have it packed, weigh it and measure it, then add those details into our quote engine to get the best price for your child seat to be delivered. We can also help you send them out of the UK via our international courier services. If this is the case, and you are shipping out of the EU, you might have customs forms to print out and attach as well as the shipping label.
Finding a cost effective courier service to ship your car parts or motorbike spares is easier than you think. We can help you send all kinds of car spares as long as they are prepared properly and packaged in the right way. It is imperative that there are no liquids, oils or batteries sent. This can see your car part simply destroyed by the courier company as these types of items are not suitable for transportation through a courier network.
Pallets are also no problem for Parcel Monkey users, DX Freight and Tuffnells are used to handling this type of freight. Gearboxes and engines specifically are best sent via a pallet service in order for them to be best protected and handled safely. Arrange a pallet delivery as you would do for a parcel, just let us know this is how it is going to be sent when the question pops up in the booking process.
We have sent many thousands of car seats whether they are child or baby seats or spare parts for a renovation jobs, including a steady stream of clients coming our way from eBay. Good baby or child seats are expensive to buy and when your child has grown out of them then it may be wise to sell your current one and put those funds to a new one or more toys!
