Shipping Electronic Devices with Batteries

Posted on 11 Sep, 2017

International door to door courier service

Mobile phones, laptops and countless other electronic devices are found in households all around the world. Whether it be keeping in contact with loved ones or doing work on the go these devices are an integral part of our daily routines. 

But what if we want to send a parcel overseas that contains one of these items?

The problem with shipping a parcel overseas that contains an electronic device is that it may contain Lithium Batteries. Lithium batteries are becoming increasingly powerful as they are designed to power devices for hours and sometimes days on end. To achieve this type of performance they must contain extremely high levels of stored electric energy. If a shipment of lithium batteries has not been packed correctly or is damaged in transit, the batteries can short circuit causing them to overheat and catch fire. Once Lithium Batteries have caught fire they are extremely difficult to extinguish and the likelihood that the fire will spread is extremely high and will cause a serious incident on board an aircraft. 

The most popular shipments containing Lithium Batteries are as follows:

  • Laptops and tablets
  • iPhones and iPads
  • Mobile Phones
  • Measuring equipment
  • Medical devices
  • Hoverboards
  • Electric bicycles
  • Power tools
  • Automated external defibrillators
  • Drones
  • GPS & Navigation system
  • Heart rate monitor

Ship Me Home as a respected and trusted international courier company takes the transport of your shipment containing lithium batteries very seriously. All shipments of Lithium Batteries must comply with the International Air Transport Association and International Civil Aviation Organisation.

When you send a parcel or package overseas it is your responsibility to notify Ship Me Home and declare that you have a shipment that contains Dangerous Goods. With our experience and a little bit of team work we will help you package, label and issue the correct documentation so your shipment of Dangerous Goods is sent safely and securely to its destination.

If you are unsure whether your shipment may contain Dangerous Goods or not, please contact the team at Ship Me home by emailing info@shipmehome.com.au We will be more than happy to answer your questions and walk you through the whole process

Personal Effects Shipping Courier


Depending on your destination and ticket class there are weight limitations and baggage allowances on all airlines. For those of you that have been asked to remove 5 kgs from your luggage or accept over inflated excess luggage fees know exactly what I am talking about.

There’s no need to get caught at the check-in counter having to shell out hundreds of dollars. The answer is to plan ahead and take advantage of our experience with personal effects shipping. With our no-fuss online booking system your excess luggage will be waiting for you at home safe and sound and it won't cost you the earth !!

Across all airlines the amount of luggage you’re able to check in varies depending on your fare, ticket class and inclusions. Luggage allowances vary widely and the additional piece or excess weight cost is significant. If you know your luggage is going to be overweight or you’ve added an extra piece or two it would be wise to look for alternatives.

Give us a call today on 1300 335 487, or email us to see how our international delivery services can send your luggage overseas, cheap and quick!
