The simple answer to this question is, yes. Here at Parcel Delivery, we do not offer a packaging service, so it is important that you ensure your package is securely wrapped and taped up prior to sending. In order to get the most accurate quote, it is also imperative that you measure and weigh the parcel that you are looking to send AFTER you have packaged it up.
Couriers will also not offer a packaging service, and if they come to collect a parcel that is unpackaged, the likelihood is that it will not be taken. If it is however, the courier cannot take any responsibility for any damage that may occur during transit.
Many couriers will provide you with some form of parcel packaging guidelines that you can use to ensure that your parcel will get to its final destination in one piece.
