Do you need a golf club shipping service? You can use the Parcel Monkey shipping calculator to find a great courier price so that you can send your clubs and golf equipment with confidence, even if they are large and heavy.
If you are sending your golf clubs ahead of playing on a course in the US or overseas, or you have sold a single club or full set online, you can book a reliable courier and save on the cost of shipping them using our discounted rates.
Before you do anything, take the time to correctly package your golf equipment to ensure it will be transported safely. If you have sold an expensive TaylorMade M3 or M4 driver, you won’t want to hear from the buyer that it has arrived damaged.
Drivers are the longest club in a set of clubs if you can hit it well that is… so we will use that as the example here.
Measure up the club before you get any packaging as a box that is too short is no good. You can purchase specialist cardboard boxes from eBay - and it is worth buying a few boxes if you sell a lot of clubs or have an expensive one to ship.
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.
Use a new box that is designed for clubs or a long box which is long enough to contain the whole club and head then half fill with packaging chips.
Place the club in the box before topping it up with more packaging chips - no parts of the club should touching the edge of the box.
Secure the box with layers of packaging tape.
For a full set of golf clubs, it is best to send them in a golf bag. Remember to consider this if you are listing your golf clubs online on eBay or any other marketplace - as this will ensure the clubs arrive together as a complete set, plus you might be more likely to make the sale with a bag included.
Each club will still need to be individually packaged as per the guidelines above, but you won’t need individual boxes, just ensure they are well wrapped up in bubble wrap. If you have the headcovers for the clubs, keep those on. Return the clubs once packaged to the golf bag, and get a larger box to hold the whole bag inside. Make sure to not squeeze golf clubs into a box too small, or that they can move about.
You may even have the original packaging lying around and if not try the local golf store and they might have one you can use for free, or alternatively with golf being such a huge sport you can buy the supplies online.
For many golfers, their clubs are their pride and joy - so properly packaging them before shipping them with a courier is vital. You should consider buying a hard travel case which is more suited to freight delivery.
Failing this, bubblewrap up the clubs in your bag and use a double walled cardboard box - which you can purchase online. Taking the extra care and time to wrap your clubs and add additional protection to vulnerable areas such as around the heads of drivers, is well worth it.
Make sure you’re not squeezing the clubs into the box too snug, or that there isn’t a lot of empty space inside, meaning they can move about. Use packaging chips to fill up any gaps in the box to minimize the risk of movement and damage.
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 don’t send any prohibited items in your bag such as liquids or food as this could cause a delay on them being shipped.
If you have sold a golf club or a whole set online, Parcel Monkey can help you get them shipped for a great price. If you need domestic shipping the cheapest way to ship your clubs will be using a Ground service.
Economy shipping is great for large, bulky or long boxes and the transit times are still a very reasonable 1-5 days depending on where the delivery is going to. Not only this you can book a FedEx courier to come and pick up your box or you can Drop Off at any FedEx store.
If you need a more expedited courier service, we have overnight shipping services with FedEx or you can use our USPS services for a quicker transit time.
If you sell golf clubs to a buyer overseas we have a range of international shipping services suitable for golf clubs such as International Drop Off provided by FedEx or even more economical tracked mail services like DHL eCommerce and TrakPak.
There are several advantages for sending clubs to a course before you play, including not needing to carry them when you travel.

Various other benefits include;
Avoid having to carry them around the airport
Avoid excessive airline charges for extra bags
Can be shipped directly to golf course or resort
Clubs can be picked up from your home and delivered on time

Drop Off at store or Post Office if more convenient

If you are going to book a courier service to send your clubs, make sure you send well ahead of time, as you don’t them to arrive on the day you need them, as couriers can deliver up until 6 pm- which is no good for a morning tee time!
Contact the course to ensure they can cater for looking after them and get a relevant contact number from them so the courier can get in touch with them should there be any issues with delivery.
Parcel Monkey offers a selection of courier services so you can have your clubs picked up from your home or work address - or if you prefer you can drop them off at a local store or Post Office if more convenient.
