Sometimes we just don’t have a set of scales or` a tape measure at hand when we need them. However, this shouldn’t stop you from sending your parcel with ON POINT EXPRESS. We are here to help – look at our weight and size comparison guide below. We have taken everyday objects from around the house or office and given you the measurements to help you compare the sizes and weights against your parcel.
If your parcel is large in size and light in weight, the delivery price may be calculated by the parcel’s volumetric weight rather than its actual weight. To calculate volumetric weight, use the formula below. Parcel weight is rounded up to the nearest half kilo. The Greater of the two weights will be used to calculate the delivery cost.
The list is virtually endless, but here are a few examples:
The below items will not be accepted by DHL as they are either prohibited by the state or local government of any country from where the parcel may originate or be sent to. For international carriage there may be additional prohibited items specified by the country of destination.
