It is usually safe to use courier delivery companies like DHL or FedEx rather than unknown companies when you want to send your goods. Goods sometimes may get lost when they get to their destination, so using a professional courier service would be the most secure way although they can be expensive.
Proper packaging is very necessary when shipping goods to avoid damaging some items. When sending fragile items, it is advisable to use internal packaging to protect them during transit.

Once the deadline for collecting the goods is missed, it would be sent back to where it came from, and the sender would lie for any charge.
