Responsible Shipping of Paints & Aerosols

Solvent based paints and aerosols are classed as Hazardous Goods with restrictions on the Limited Quantity size allowed for road, air and sea transportation, which are only permitted to be shipped by an Approved ADR Courier.

Due to the nature of the products specialist handling is ESSENTIAL and many well-known couriers such as Hermes, TNT, UK Mail and DPD are prohibited to ship these items.

Royal Mail:  To comply with national and international regulations governing the carriage of mail, and ensure that mail in transport does not present a danger to the general public, we restrict or prohibit certain items from our network.

We want to ensure the mail is safe for everyone. Many everyday items, such as aerosols, paints, nail varnish and perfumes are considered dangerous goods under transport legislation.

Unfortunately shipping these items does mean products classed as Flammable liquids may result in an increased shipping charge applied by our couriers.
As per the recommendations for secure transportation of any dangerous goods as listed in the European Agreement Concerning the International Carriage of Goods (ADR) 2009 (Dangerous Goods).
