Get a quote and book your freight in four quick steps.

Step 1: Provide Shop/supplier details

Here you can either select a shop from the list of recognized and Boxnotch recommended shops or enter details of ANY other shop/supplier that you choose to purchase from weather it is an online shop or other supplier or an address where your items need to be shipped from.


In this tab enter the country in which your goods will be delivered (final destination).We currently only deliver to Malta.

Shop Name:

Insert the shop/supplier name and address from where you are purchasing the goods. If the shop or supplier name is "Boxnotch recommended" or is recognized by our system, the country and city will be automatically filled in. This information will be used to generate the closest Boxnotch Warehouse Address.

It should be noted that our service covers the shipment of your goods from our foreign warehouse (closest to the shop/supplier). The shop/supplier will need to carry the items from their premises to our warehouse. Most UK online stores will offer free delivery to UK address and you will need to provide the Boxnotch warehouse address to the shop when purchasing the item.

Step 2: Provide Your product(s) information.

Enter all package details in the required fields. The dimensions and weight should include the package as it will be shipped/transported. You can acquire this information from the product details from the e shop or other product sites or by contacting the shop/supplier directly. If this information is not available we have provided a reference chart that will give you an approximate indication of package dimensions and the equivalent freight rates, kindly estimate the overall size and weight. The final package dimensions would be measured at arrival in our warehouse and any variations will be charged separately as per our terms and conditions. If the product is packed into more than one box kindly add the total combined dimensions and weight of all boxes.

Step 3: Choose your delivery option

Delivery option:

Select your preferred delivery option based on the time you wish the items to be delivered. Kindly note that this is calculated as the delivery lead time for bringing your goods from our Foreign warehouse to the warehouse closest to your location. You will need to allow for the additional time required for the shop or supplier to deliver to our Foreign warehouse. In the next section you will be imputing the shop estimated delivery time and the final given Estimated Time of arrival provided is the sum of the two.

(Eg if the shop advices that it will deliver within three days and you chose a boxnotch delivery of 10 days then your package should be delivered within 13 days.)

Boxnotch Warehouse Address:

This address is to be used when purchasing your products from your shop or supplier.
