Packing and documentation Click to expand Click to collapse


It's important to pack your item properly, as we may refuse goods that aren't likely to withstand climate extremes.

Visit a post office to pick up a prepaid padded bag or select from our Postpak range. For hints on packing your item, check our packaging guidelines.

Prepaid padded bag Size Maximum weight
Small 34 x 24cm 500g
Medium 38 x 26.5cm 1kg


To meet aviation security requirements, a consignment note will be attached to your pre-paid padded bag. If you're using a non-prepaid item, you can collect a consignment note from any Post Office. You'll need to complete and sign the consignment note before lodging your item.

If your item weighs 500g or more or is valued at or above $500, you'll need to complete a customs form. You can collect one of these forms from your local Post Office.
