Expert Fragile Goods Courier Services

At Breakwells, we specialise in fragile parcel delivery such as glassware, tableware and other delicate items

The Breakwells team have been offering fragile goods courier services for over 50 years, making us the clear choice for when such shipping is required. We handle all delicate goods with the care and attention they require from the moment they arrive at our modern Kidderminster storage facility to when they reach their delivery address, be it in the UK or overseas.

 

We have a wide transportation network developed and improved over decades of hard work in fragile parcel delivery. Spanning nationwide and to our offshore island locations, our courier routes can help you get your glassware, tableware or any other fragile items to their destination in pristine condition. Thanks to our no-double-handling policy, you won’t have to worry about your consignment suffering damages in transit, even if it’s headed overseas, as once it leaves our depot, it stays on that vehicle until it is delivered. 

 

We work both with domestic and commercial clients, ensuring that delicate items, no matter how large or small, are transported safely. Whether it’s a scheduled delivery or a one-off delivery; standard or express service, our fragile goods courier shipping is always professional and punctual. 

 

Our services are always tailored to your specific needs, so if you have fragile items that need delivering, please contact us on 01562 755494 or send us an email at info@breakwells.com to discuss how we can help.

Fragile Items Packing & Wrapping Tips 

Preparing fragile goods for shipping can be tricky, so we thought we’d give you some handy tips on how to pack, wrap and seal your package for maximum efficiency and safety. 

 

  • Use a high-quality, heavy-duty box
  • Don’t reuse boxes as their durability degrades with each use 
  • Leave space for additional protective wrapping in the box
  • Use bubble wrap, styrofoam, cardboard dividers & other protective materials
  • Wrap each individual item separately but place more than one item in each box 
  • Lightweight materials, such as paper and airbags aren’t recommended for fragile items
  • Use tape that says FRAGILE to seal the parcel when possible
  • Ensure all labels are clearly visible and easy to read   

 

With those safe packing tips and our attentive and professional handling practices in place, your fragile shipment will reach its delivery destination just as you sent it.
