Mailbox parcel dimensions

The most important thing for a mailbox parcel: that it fits through the mailbox! Therefore, always take into account the maximum dimensions: 38 cm long, 26.5 cm wide and 3.2 cm high. Packages within these sizes are small and flat enough to fit in any standard mailbox. Also keep an eye on the maximum weight: 2 kg. As long as your package stays within these dimensions and weight, you can trust us to deliver it through the mailbox.

How do I send a mailbox parcel?

Sending a mailbox parcel is just as easy as a regular parcel. What about packaging?

You can't go wrong with mailbox sized packaging: it is nice and sturdy and suitable for more vulnerable items.

For example, do you want to send a book? Then letterbox packaging with double-layer corrugated cardboard is ideal.

Empty spaces in the box are best filled with filler such as paper so that the contents of your package do not slide.

Make sure that your package is tightly closed. Are you in doubt? Then close it with a piece of tape.
