How to package golf clubs
To mail a set of golf clubs or even a single club, we would always advise that you purchase a specialist golf club shipping box. This will offer your clubs the best protection during transit.
You can buy golf club shipping boxes of various sizes from eBay or Amazon, but make sure you purchase a box that is long enough. The driver is the longest club, so ensure your shipping box is long enough to fit this comfortably inside. It’s always worth buying an extra box or two, as your clubs will take up more space once they are properly wrapped and packed.
Follow these simple steps for packing golf clubs:
- If you have a headcover, send the golf club with that on for optimum protection.
- Wrap the golf club shaft with 2 layers of bubble wrap and secure with tape.
- Wrap two pieces of bubble wrap around the golf club head and secure with tape. If you’re sending more than one club, wrap each one individually then bundle them closely together, using extra bubble wrap and parcel tape to secure them.
- Put some packing chips in the bottom of your shipping box, then place your club/clubs inside and pack any spaces with more packing chips to minimise movement during transit.
- Secure the box with packaging tape.
- Measure and weigh your packaged clubs then get a quote through our shipping calculator to find the cheapest way to send golf clubs domestically and overseas.
Packing golf clubs and bag
If you’re shipping golf clubs with a bag, then you should consider purchasing a specialist golf club travel bag. This will offer the best protection, especially if you’re shipping golf clubs overseas.
Before you place the clubs in the bag, each club will still need to be individually packaged as per the guidelines above. To ensure the clubs don’t move around in the bag you can use old towels or even newspaper to fill any gaps. Zip up the bag and put it inside a strong cardboard box - A bag on its own is not suitable for a courier network where your clubs are likely to be shipped alongside other heavy and bulky items.
Make sure you check your bag to ensure you’re not sending any prohibited items, such as liquids or food, as this could cause a delay in customs.
Shipping golf clubs with Parcel Monkey
When you book a golf club delivery with Parcel Monkey, you’ll need access to a printer so you can print your shipping label and attach it to your shipping box. Learn more about how to print and attach shipping labels.
If you are sending golf clubs overseas, it’s likely you will need to complete a customs declaration form. If customs documents are required for your destination, we will help you complete these during the booking process. All you need to do is print the completed form and attach it to your box in a clear plastic wallet or envelope.
