Make sure you can send your items with us

There are some items we're not able to carry for the safety of our parcel people and to comply with the law.

The items on our prohibited list are restricted for a reason as many of them are dangerous. It's unlikely any of these items would make it into our network but if they did they'd be disposed of immediately, so please don't try to send them!

You can download our detailed list of prohibited items, but here are some examples
