Protect your contents

On this page you can find some good advice for packaging your moving goods before it is to be transported around Europe. In this way, you can help ensure that your goods arrive safely without damage.

All goods MUST be packed, otherwise it is not covered by our transport insurance, and will be at the customer's own responsibility.

Moving boxes

There are many different types of moving boxes.
At EU Transport we recommend using moving boxes with a thickness of 7 mm. This allows them to keep stacked and not break when moving around with them. Put heavy stuff at the bottom of the box - The moving boxes must MAX WEIGHT 20 KG. and it should be completely closed, preferably with tape. If the box weighs more than 20 Kg, SKAL den pakkes om i 2 flyttekasser, ellers vil den ikke blive lastet på bilen.

It is also important to wrap any fragile items in bubble wrap or similar before lying in the moving box.

Remember to name all the moving boxes!

Television / TV

It is important that your TV is wrapped well. The best way is to wrap it in the cardboard box it was delivered in from new, the next best solution is to get a "bike box" from the local bike dealer and get one of his completed bicycle boxes. These you can wrap your TV in with blankets or similar, so it is protected in the box.

If you do not have the option of any of the above mentioned solutions, make sure that your TV is well wrapped in blankets / corrugated plastic and or a splash box.

If not properly wrapped, the right of complaint lapses.

Remember to write your name!

Bicycles / Electric bicycles

Bicycles must have been "steered" before pickup and pedals must be removed. The bike should very much be securely wrapped in cardboard or blankets, and then any bicycle baskets must be removed.

Electric bicycles should be treated just like regular bicycles, and the battery must be removed and put in a bag or small cardboard box.

Remember to write your name!


Paintings must be properly packaged, either with rugs, or bubble wrap. Alternatively, get it wrapped up in a pop-up moving box. It would also be a good idea to have it wrapped in a wooden box if it is is a large painting, which the insurance company requires.

If your painting is not packaged correctly, it will not be covered by our insurance.

Remember to write your name!

Mattresses / comforters / pillows

Mattresses are wrapped in plastic.

Duvets and pillows are packed in sacks or the like.

Glass tables

Glass panels can be very fragile. That is why we also require them to be wrapped securely in either bubble wrap, blankets or cardboard - Rather too much wrapping than none at all.

If not properly wrapped, the right of complaint lapses.

Sofas / furnitures

Sofas and other furniture must also be packed before we pick them up at the address. If they are not properly packaged, the transport will be at the customer's own responsibility and the furniture will not be covered under our insurance.
