We have negotiated some heavily discounted prices for large, cumbersome and bulky white goods such as fridges, freezers and fridge freezers with specialists DX Freight and Tuffnells. If you require a large or heavy courier service, we can also help you find out more about how to arrange this and things you should be aware of.
If you have seen a fridge for sale locally on a marketplace such as eBay, Gumtree or Facebook, then you should also consider Parcel Monkey local which is operated by City Sprint. This will get the fridge collected and delivered on the Same Day and you can choose exactly the size of vehicle you need before you book and you will be able to choose a rough time of day of when you need the item to be picked up.
We do offer courier delivery via a wider range of couriers for smaller fridges such as those that fit under counters. A typical under-counter fridge, when adequately packaged for delivery, would measure 50cm x 50cm x 90cm and weight 27kg. This could be moved by a number of couriers even Parcelforce Large for a great price.
A freestanding fridge, such as the Indesit CAA 55 measures approximately 62cm x 59cm x 180cm and weights 58kg and would cost more due to the dimensions of it with Tuffnells or DX Freight - but if it is in your local area getting it from A to B via City Sprint, selecting a large van would be the best value for money.
There are some details you should be aware of when you book a courier to transport your fridge.
You will need to weigh and measure the fridge once you have it all packed and ready for the courier. This way will ensure you provide all the correct information to the courier company you choose via our quote engine. We appreciate weighing a fridge might be a tricky task, but you can always find the model of fridge online and take the weight from there and add a little on for the packaging. This is another reason why you should make sure it is empty and defrosted!
You'll need to print the shipping labels to be attached to the outer packaging of the fridge so it can be correctly directed to the recipient. If you book a Parcel Monkey local delivery service with City Sprint, there will be no need for labels as the courier will transport it directly from A to B.
The chances are you will need to help the courier load and unload the fridge so let the person who it is being collected from or delivered to this as well. Parcel Monkey courier services are not a specific white goods service, so they may only bring your item to your door and no further.
