We are the largest courier comparison site in the UK and also offer international shipping options. The shipping and delivery of clothing items must be approached with care to prevent any damage and to ensure they get to their destination in one piece.

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

  • Different types and sizes of clothing - how many clothing items are you sending and are these delicate? Are you also sending shoes or boots which require larger delivery options? Carefully measure and weigh your items to find the best courier option.

  • Package them carefully - boots and shoes should be packaged in sturdy cardboard boxes, such as the original shoe box, while smaller items of clothing such as sweatshirts, hoodies or tops can be packaged in softer packaging such as garment bags or plastic and poly shipping bags.

  • Delivery options - if getting items to your recipient quickly is important, we offer both same day and next day delivery options. If you are sending valuable items such as designer clothing, or posting clothes as a gift, then recorded delivery is a good option to ensure it is signed for on arrival. Prohibited items.
