How does the service work?
After you have left a request on our website or by phone, based on your time and budget requirements, our managers will select the best offer for delivery. After approval, a courier comes to you, picks up your postal item, and delivers it.
Will I need to carry anything far?
Our courier will pick up your postal item from anywhere in the world. The main thing is to specify the exact address from where you need it picked up. We have cars and trucks, and if something is really heavy, then movers will come, and if it is very heavy, then a crane and riggers will also come.
Where do I need to bring the parcel/cargo/letter to be sent?
Time Saving Machine has more than 5,000 offices in Russia and abroad. To find out the location of the nearest one, you need to contact a TSM manager by phone: +7 (495) - 023-49-19, or WhatsApp: +7 (985) 17-00-376. The central office is located at this address: Moscow Shukhova street 17k2, or you can call a courier so you do not have to go anywhere.
How can I weigh the package if there are no suitable scales nearby?
If there are no scales nearby, then you can use a household scale to weigh your body weight. To do this, take your parcel, stand with it on the scale, and subtract your body weight from the total weight. It is better to specify a little more weight of the parcel. In order to weigh the parcel, use a home scale, and the mobile app Roulette for iPhone or Virtual Ruler for Android will help you measure it.
What is volume weight?
The volume weight of the postal item (overall weight) is a calculated value that reflects the density of the cargo. Usually, a less dense object occupies a larger amount of space compared to a denser object with the same weight. The volume weight is calculated and compared with the actual mass of the shipment to determine which of the values is greater. The higher value is used to calculate the cost of the shipment.
In accordance with the advanced design and technology of modern transport, the carrier company needs to use the calculation of the volume weight in order to increase the efficiency of using the cargo space and avoid volume overload.
Using more compact and lightweight packaging reduces the volume of postal items and reduces the cost of shipping them.
How to properly pack a parcel?
If you decide to pack your postal item yourself, the packaging must be:
● free of damage and contamination;

If you decide to pack the fragile items yourself, then place them in the center of a tight box so that they do not touch each other. Carefully wrap each item in a soft packaging material. The item being sent should not be loose in the box, so you should fill the empty space with crumpled newspapers, cloth, or special filler.
In our company, we securely pack fragile items and put a “Fragile” marking on the parcel. We have a lot of experience, so you can count on our professionalism. However, no company can guarantee the integrity and safety of such items, so we recommend that you insure any postal item marked “Fragile".
