What is the Amazon shipping service for bulky and heavy products?

Whether it's a sofa, washing machine or sports equipment, simple and practical planning will improve the customer experience when it comes to delivering bulky and heavy items. Ensuring that customers are home to receive the delivery will save you time and reduce the cost of failed deliveries. The Heavy & Bulky programme offers two shipping options
Arranged delivery
Arranged delivery
With this shipping option, customers are informed both on the detail page and during checkout that they will be contacted to arrange delivery, and they are asked to update their telephone number before completing the order. You or your carrier will contact the customer via phone, text message or email to arrange delivery.
Scheduled delivery
Scheduled delivery to floor
With this shipping option, customers can choose their preferred delivery date or time slot in the calendar at checkout. You can set your calendar in advance with the available delivery dates and time slots. At checkout, customers can also update their phone number, in case they want to be contacted on the day of delivery. Delivery will arrive at the floor of the customer's home.

Why use the shipping service for heavy and bulky products?

Save costs

Avoid the cost of failed deliveries

Greater transparency in the delivery process means that customers know when they need to be at home to receive their products. This saves on costs related to failed deliveries.
Verification certificate

Accurate customer contact details

Your customers verify their contact information at checkout and may update any incorrect information. This makes it easier for you or your carrier to arrange delivery, in addition to saving you time as you don't need to contact customers to update their contact information.
Shipping

Shipping price by region

The programme allows you to assign prices based on the region and/or remove regions when necessary. This allows you to better calculate delivery costs.
