For the sender

How do I pack my parcel to avoid damages?
The sender is responsible for properly packaging the parcel so it wont be broken in transit. The parcels are partially handled by machines and collected in cages during transit. The sender needs to make sure that the item is packed in such a way that the content or other parcels are damaged by the package. 
Use as enough packing material so that the item is immovable in the package. A recommendation is that the package should be able to handle a fall from a table.

Notes or text with fragile/glassware or similar wont give any extra protection since the parcels are handled by machines. 

How do I get the shipping label?
When shipping with DHL you don't need access to a printer. You will receive a booking number that you hand over to the vendor so that they can print the shipping note for you.

What happens if the parcel weighs more than I paid for?
If the parcel is heavier than what you ordered you will be charged for the difference in shipping cost. You will get an e-mail notification and the charge will be added to your next invoice. You can check all your upcoming charges here

Can I hand in the parcel at another vendor than the one I specified?
