My question is, what should I put on the parcel as contents in order to avoid unnecessary hassle in the post office, and guarantee that they accept the parcel for delivery. If memory serves me right, once in Machester I tried to send a bottle to a LOndon address, and marked the contents as whisky, only to be told by the postal worker that they refuse the parcel due to its flammable contents.
Needless to say, the same parcel was mailed safely from the other nearby post office as "boxfull of special shampoo" later ..
Here in Germany there is no requirement or even facility to label a parcel as to the contents. The only time contents are specified is when sending outside of the EU and a custom declaration is required.
In those cases, I use "Collectible bottle".
only when sending things outwith the uk you have to declare whats inside for customs reasons, then all ido is put on it either lava lamp or collectable glass bottle.
