Overland Express are a specialist carrier for paint, so if you need to send paint within the UK, Europe, or Worldwide, we have many cost effective delivery options available. Read on for information on how to send paint.
We have been sending paint, with our partners DPD and DHL, on their extensive domestic and European road networks, for over 25 years.
When sending paint, there are a few things to consider, whilst DHL are able to send paint through their network, they do have restrictions, so we have listed them as follows.
You can send water based paint and emulsions worldwide via DHL or DPD.
Oil based paints, varnishes, gloss and undercoats, lacquers, wood preservatives and treatments, heat proof paint and stove paint, car paints, anti-foul, floor paints and sealers, aerosols, wood stains, worktop oils and any other flammable or hazardous paints, can only be sent throughout the UK and Europe (excluding Norway) via DPD on their European road service. These cannot be sent by air. If you are in any doubt, please contact us.
To send paint, please refer to our packaging advice which can be found here.
We cannot accept any responsibility or liability for any damage caused due to insufficient packaging.
Furthermore, as we benefit from being a volume purchaser from the likes of DHL, UPS and DPD, we get preferential rates, which in turn, we pass on to you.
To start saving huge sums of money on all of your paint deliveries, please take a look at our great rates that are available through the 'Send a Parcel' tool above. And remember, when you send paint, please select DPD or DHL as the courier for paint.
