Shipping Guide

When you buy your Japanese Antique from raimu it is our responsibility to ensure that your item reaches you in good time and the condition you expect. Shipping presents a lot of problems as this is where we have to hand-over to a third party.

Our operation is primarily UK based where we have arranged partnerships with some very good carriers, outside of the UK and into the EU parcels and freight are handled by many providers. We take the very best precautions to ensure that your items are packed robustly and can survive the journey. The most frequent question we are asked is how much will the shipping cost? As each destination and item is different we need to obtain quotes from our agents. As a guide, we will populate this page with examples.

Parcel Deliveries

Parcel deliveries are despatched via Parcelforce or DPD Worldwide. We use DPD for parcles under 1 meter in length/30kg in weight. Parcelforce of oversized parcels upto 50kg in weight. Outside of these weights and measures we have to either divide or palletise the goods. 

Pallet Deliveries

UK MAINLAND (Wales/Scotland) 3-5 days
We use a logistics removal company for all UK mainland deliveries, therefore furniture does not require a pallet. Our removals company can also install the furniture directly into your home.
Prices are from £60.00 – £150.00 depending on location.

EU Deliveries 3-5 days
We use a standard UK pallet which is 100cm x 120cm
A half pallet is 100 cm tall including the pallet.
A full pallet is 210cm tall including the pallet.

In most cases, we can use the half pallet size if we stack a chest on chest tansu side by side or lay a full-size tansu on its back.
