Can I Send Lithium Batteries Overseas?
Yes, in most cases you can. Through PACK & SEND's comprehensive service, you can have your consignment sent anywhere in Australia or the world via air, road or sea. As lithium batteries are classified as dangerous goods, they need the careful handling and personalised service provided at our Service Centres. There are some circumstances where we may not be able to send certain lithium batteries (e.g. lithium batteries on their own cannot be sent). Please contact your local PACK & SEND service centre for specific advice regarding your needs and circumstances.
