Packaging Requirements

Whilst every effort is made to ensure safe transport of your goods, Paisley Freight ask customers to package goods in an appropriate manner as described below to greatly reduce the chances of accidental damage during transport.

The onus is on you, not the driver to ensure your goods are suitably packaged as described below.

If your goods are not compliant with the packaging requirements or are deemed oversized or overweight, they may be rejected by the driver or local depot. Your goods will be returned to the sender and a failed collection charge will incur.

All shipments are subject to volumetric checks at any stage of the delivery. If your package is deemed oversized or overweight additional fees will incur or will be liable for return.

Failure to comply with our packaging requirements will invalidate any liability claims.

Measuring your goods:

  • Length: Measure the longest side of your package from one end to the other.
  • Height: Measure the package from the bottom to the tallest point.
  • Width: Measure from the widest point of your fully packaged goods.
