Shipping tips

To ensure safe arrival

Shipping information

Goods must be packed well so that they arrive intact. Sturdy cardboard, inner padding and strong tape all offer good protection. The right packaging helps to safeguard the contents of your parcels during automatic sorting and transportation.

All that is then needed is the correct address on the dispatch label and the parcel is ready to send. According to the shipping terms and conditions of GLS, a parcel for shipment within Poland may weigh up to 31.5 kg and up to 40 kg for shipment abroad. The combined length and girth may be up to three metres.
