Shipping heavy shipment freight refers to the process of transporting large or heavy goods — such as machinery, furniture, or large appliances — in bulk. Our specialised Heavy Shipment Service is specifically designed to handle such tasks, ensuring your bulky packages arrive at their destination safely.
The cost to ship heavy boxes can vary based on size, weight, and destination. However, with the single-window pricing system of DHL Express’ Heavy Items Courier Service, all charges from pick-up to delivery are included, helping you avoid hidden or unexpected costs. We adopt this approach to provide transparency and a cost-effective solution for your heavy item shipping needs.
When packing large items for shipping, it's ideal to use the original packaging if available. If not, sturdy boxes that fit the item closely should be used. Inside the box, use packing materials like bubble wrap or packing peanuts to cushion the item and prevent movement during transit. If needed, DHL Express provides comprehensive packing and crating services for your heavy item shipping needs.
