The couriers we work with can help you ship a whole host of computer-related items. We regularly help users of our site ship PC cases, coolers, CPUs, hard drives, HDD controllers, switches, memory cards, motherboards, power supplies, soundcards or speakers. Not only this we also help customers courier consoles elsewhere, such as Playstations and Xbox branded goods.
Computer servers can be carried via the couriers available on our site, however, you will not be able to add protection cover to them during the booking process. For any other computer parts that we do not offer protection cover on, these will be highlighted in the booking process.
Should you have any doubts about the item you want to send, please check our very comprehensive list of prohibited items. This list states that we cannot ship Apple goods such as the Mac range including Macbooks, iPhones and Mac Desktops.
We can help you move printers and print cartridges around the UK, but not overseas. If you are moving a printer we advise that ink cartridges are removed from the actual printer and moved separately. It is also important that ink cartridges are packed so that the ink cannot contaminate other items in transit.
Just with any item that is delicate, we strongly recommend that you reduce the chances of damage in transit to an absolute minimum by packaging the components with cushion pack padding, bubble wrap and use a couple of sturdy boxes to double protect your all-important computer parts or components. We also suggest that you take a photo of the item before and after you've protected it just to be on the safe side too. We have an extensive packaging list available for you to follow and take guidance from.
Some Key Points to Note:
For the outer packaging, sending computer parts or components is no different from moving other items:
We've had tens of thousands of happy customers booking our services to send a whole manner of goods including computer parts and components, but often the cause of any issues we've encountered have been due to inappropriately packaged items in flimsy boxes with no, or minimal protection. If you, unfortunately, have had an item arrive damaged we do have an expedient resolution service to help you make a claim against the cover purchased on booking.
If you're selling a used item on eBay, Gumtree or Preloved you may not have the original packaging, but please do find an alternative and protective type of packaging to ensure your parcel arrives in tip top condition.
We offer collection and delivery courier services where a driver can come to your home or work address to collect your box. This might be easier if you are a business as it saves a trip down to the Post Office, or if the box is large and heavy, this type of collected service saves the hassle of moving around big boxes of valuable goods. We have couriers who can handle goods that weigh up to and over 30kg, if your box is of substantial weight or size.
We also offer Drop Off services. DPD Pickup has over 2,500 'Pickup' stores to drop into, or you can get a quote online with us and select a Parcelforce Drop Off, print the shipping label out and drop at your local Post Office or Parcelforce Depot. These Drop Off services are great if you need to be flexible, as you can drop the parcel off at any convenient time if you are not able to wait in for a driver to collect.
We have sent a significant number of parcels containing computer parts to countries such as Spain, India and Ireland, but even if you're only sending your parcel within the UK over a short distance the requirement for adequate protection is just the same. Another destination where computer-related goods are sent to on a regular basis is the UAE. Some of the top UK exports to the UAE include telecoms, sound recording equipment, electrical machinary, and appliances, partly down to the 5,000 UK companies doing business there.
If you are sending goods overseas it may be a case of checking with the Customs in the country you are shipping to that your items are allowed. Please also not we do not allow the shipping of Printers or Cartridges overseas, and also be sure to remove any batteries for example in a console controller, as these are also prohibited
