Transporting a windscreen to Malta - Interior/Exterior/Lights/Glass/Alarms/ICE/HVAC - The Lotus Forums Jump to content

Hi Guys,


My original windscreen was heavily scratched when I bought the car and since has been cracked during removal, so I am looking to replace with a new windscreen.


I am pre-planning my refitting of the interior and I am trying to work out how to get a windscreen posted to Malta.


I've managed to find a company that is willing to ship the windscreen from Manchester to Malta in an insured container.  However my difficulty is figuring out how to have the windscreen transported from SJ/Pilkington to Manchester and how it can be packed.



The shipping costs to Malta SJ were astronomical ! However If I can keep the total weight under 50kgs then I can get a great shipping rate through this group container company.


Would anyone have any thoughts on how I can package and transport to Manchester?

You need to find a courier who will insure it and in my experience very few UK couriers will do that for glass. You might be better off finding someone on and ensure they get it insured personally.

You need a courier who handels fine art, they are used to shipping delicate products in insurance approved packaging..

When I bought my windscreen from Pilkingtons they wouldn't pack it and send it to me I had to physically go and get it. Even though I was willing to pay the full delivery costs they just weren't interested.
