When considering a book courier service, take into account the following:

  • Different book sizes - are you sending an individual book on its own or a box of many books? Single books are good options for small parcel delivery, while boxes of books are best sent in a large or heavier delivery option. Carefully measure and weigh your books to get your parcel measurements to find the best option. 
  • Package them carefully - a single book may just need a padded envelope, while a sturdy cardboard box is recommended for multiple book delivery. 
  • Delivery options. Choose an appropriate delivery option – whether you want your book courier to deliver your items the next day, or if signed for delivery is important to keep your recipient updated.
  • Prohibited items. Before you send your books or related bookmarks, double-check if they're allowed for shipping (view our list of prohibited items).
