Packaging when shipping to Austria
When packaging you shipment to Austria, try to be mindful of standard shipping sizes and weights. As a rule of thumb the shipping carrier you choose will put caps on how big or heavy your package can be. Additionally they may force you to ship it a ceratin way if your package is on the heavy size or is an odd size. For instance if you have an envelope with some letters in it you may have ten different shipping options available from over night to snail speed where it would take it's time. If you shipping a couch, let's say, then they may force you into only one or two options for the speed you can pick based on packaging and travel availability. Again this will vary by shipping company so it is advisable that you check with them.
