Dangerous, Excluded and Restricted Goods

National and international courier networks carry a large and varied number of different items for an equally large and varied collection of different customers. This means that there will be a wide range of different goods all together on the same van, truck, plane etc ranging from Handbags to Paint, from Car Parts to Documents & Printed Products, and from Electronic Goods to Specialist Engineering Parts. 

 

However, it is not possible for certain types of goods to be carried alongside everyday items; for example, a customer would certainly not be happy if their normal consignment was being transported alongside an environmentally hazardous substance.  Therefore certain types of goods are  categorized under the headings Restricted, Excluded and Dangerous Goods so that their handling does not compromise other customers' items, nor does it compromise the health and safety of those working within the transport industry or other transport users.

The following goods are carried provided Centurion / Courier-Networks is made aware of the contents in advance.

 

They are not covered by Additional Liability Cover and are transported entirely at the sender's own risk and liability.

  • Cheques, Money Orders & other forms of Financial Securities

  • Precious metals & Precious stones

  • Jewellery & Watches
