PACKING TIPS

When sending your goods with a courier company, your shipment will be handled numerous times before arriving at its destination. It is vital to pack your shipment correctly for the rigorous journey that your parcel is about to take.

  1. Don’t Overload your Box.
    It is safer to pack multiple items individually (if possible) and to use more than one box if needed.
  2. The Original Packaging Material/Boxes
    Items such as DVD players, TV’s, computers, electronics, and electrical equipment, is best to ship in the original packaging or purchase packaging material and boxes. Bubble-wrap is essential for fragile items.
  3. Protecting Your Contents
    Whatever packaging material you decide to use, make sure that there is enough cushioning material surrounding the contents, so the contents don’t move around if the box is shaken or bumped. Industry-standard is that all items are packaged to withstand a one-metre drop.
  4. Secure Your Parcel
    Do not use masking tape, duct tape, sellotape, or string to close your box. Use wide pressure-sensitive plastic tape. Tape around the box and along the seals to stop the box opening during transit.

Please note that these are generic guidelines. Request assistance if you are unsure of the correct procedure.
