  • If a van with a lift is ordered, the weight charge is 10,00 €.
  • If the process of loading or unloading takes more than 2 minutes, a loading service charge 36€/1h or 3€/5min. is applied.
  • Size calculation: 1 length (m) + 1 width (m) + 1 height (m).
Delivery time
  • If the parcel has to be delivered faster than within the standard delivery time, it has to be agreed with our phone operators at the ordering moment.
  • Length of parcel pickup or delivery time during winter or in bad road conditions (snow, rain, traffic jams etc.) may grow up to 2 h for a bicycle courier, up to 3 h for a car / van courier.
Distance calculation
  • If both pickup and delivery locations are in Riga or closer than 10 km from Riga centre, the distance is calculated as a straight line between both addresses.
  • If the addresses are located each on a different side of Daugava river, the calculation line consists of three parts: distance from the pickup address to the closest bridge + length of the bridge + distance from the bridge to delivery address.
  • Such kind of calculation is more accurate because it is not affected by the route choice and it is approximately 30% shorter than by calculating via roads.
  • If both or one of the two addresses is located outside Riga or further than 10 km from Riga centre, the distance is calculated via the shortest possible route.

Packaging conditions

    Recomended packaging:

  • There should be used crushproof boxes with equal edges, preferably new ones. An item is put into the box, void is filled with packing material that does not allow the item to move, crash and etc. It is not allowed to put more or bigger weight in to the box than it can withstand.
  • Tender or fragile items are packed individually, preferable in the way they do not touch bottom and sides of the box.
  • Packing material (bubble wrap, foam, corrugated cartoon, cotton-wool, cutting, material, special fixing foam (you can spay them between item and box to voids) etc.) should not be saved/retrenched for items stay stable.
  • Items, sensitive to damp, dust, water need to be put in plastic bag.
  • Small items, accessories, separate accessories are to be packed up in a bag, and then to a box.
  • Strong adhesive tape has to be used (box has to be sealed with three layers from the bottom and the top).
  • Cylinder or tube form parcels must have inner pivotal enclosure, so that can be avoided possible parcel damages.
  • Seamless, smooth, unpolluted, indissoluble items (planks, slabs, cans, barrels, trunks, etc.) without sharp and protruding corners can be delivering loosed in boxes.
  • Mistakes in packaging:

  • Liquids starts to pour out by it self while transporting tare with liquids.
  • Lids and covers falls down from the pails, tins, etc. by it self.
  • Tape comes unglued and parcels’ content becomes available.
  • Fragile and delicate items delivered in unsuitable packed parcel (packed anyhow, not separated, touches each other).
  • Parcels on the palette are stowed so that while transporting bellow being packages doesn’t stand structure pressure from the above packages.
  • Parcels on the palette are stowed so that while transporting loses its vertical standing position and falls over.
  • Outer packing of big parcels doesn’t protect from damages while loading, transporting (that is presented as packed in not factory packaging, without a package, wrapped in thin tape, etc.).
  • We do no recommend a cylinder form of the package because it can roll around on the conveyor belt and cause system failures during the sorting process..
  • A package is not closed completely.
  • In case of a too small package box an additional unit of the content is attached to the outside of the package. In such case a bigger package must be chosen where all parts of the parcel could fit in.
  • Size of the package is smaller than 10 x 15 cm.
  • Big parcels (cupboards, machine-tools, etc.) are presented for delivery without pallet.
