If you do not know the weight and dimensions of your shipments, we would advise that you research other similar items online as they are often listed with accompanying weights and dimensions.
Up to 20kg or 30kg are popular cut-off points for many economy services. Therefore, on a 30kg capped service, if you enter any figure between 1-29kg, the price will be consistent throughout this weight bracket. Every option available to you for the size of your parcel will then be delivered in your quote results.
We'll give you some comparisons:
- A regular bag of sugar weighs around 1kg
- Typical airline luggage allowance is 23kg
- A fully grown, large dog probably weighs about 30kg
30kg is pretty heavy and lifting it is a bit of a struggle. If your parcel weighs more than 30kg, we're pretty sure you'll know about it!
If you have a heavy parcel and you enter it as 28kg, but in fact it is 34kg, you will be charged for booking in a parcel that is above the weight band you claimed.
