Individuals or businesses which ship Dangerous Goods without

financial and legal penalties. It is also important to remember the
following when shipping with ParcelHero.com:
If you are reusing packaging or cartons, please ensure
that all old labelling is removed. Any dangerous goods
labels on a package will cause the shipment to be held
and inspected, causing service delays and Inconvenience to
you and your customer.
If you are shipping goods that could be potentially seen as
Dangerous Goods, but are not, because of their unusual name,
appearance etc, it is advantageous to clearly declare on the
shipping documentation that the goods are classified
as Dangerous Goods. This will ensure the shipment
is not delayed unnecessarily. Any misdeclaration
will lead to strong penalties for the shipper.
