Courier for Perfume

By visiting this web page, we understand that you want to send perfume and cosmetics, to either the United Kingdom or Europe.

Overland Express are a specialist courier for perfume, we have been sending perfume for nearly 25 years.

We partner with UPS, who can ship perfume via their extensive road-service networks, plus, it is insured against loss (not damage) up to £50.00.

A cardboard box must be used for the outer packaging due to COVID-19 handling restrictions.

To start saving huge sums of money on all of your perfume delivery requirements, please take a look at our great rates that are available through the 'Send Parcel' tool above. You will be surprised that the cost of sending perfume by courier is not expensive. We can only send perfume throughout the UK and Europe, please select UPS Specialist (Not Express or Economy) for deliveries to Europe and within the UK.

Before sending perfume, please take a few minutes to read through our packaging advice, which can be found here.

Please note that none of the carriers will accept responsibility for any perfumes damaged in transit due to them being made of glass, so a little extra care when packing, will result in your perfumes arriving in the same condition as when you sent them.

So whether you need to send perfume as a Valentine gift or as a Christmas or birthday present, simply choose our perfume delivery service.

You have probably read that you cannot send perfumes or cosmetics, due to them being prohibited items. The Civil Aviation Authority and IATA banned them from all flights, due to the potentially explosive nature of them on an aircraft. We send perfumes and cosmetics by road to avoid this problem.

Please read below, some frequently asked questions when sending perfume.

Perfume delivery within EU

I used their specialist road services to send perfumes from the UK to EU. I've got a good price and my box arrived safely. Customer service is great too, as I had to modify the pick-up date.
