Packaging Tips:


  • Choose the right box size for your items. Too large or too small packaging may damage your products.
  • Leave sufficient space for cushioning and ensure you are using the correct cushioning material.
  • Make sure that you use parcel tape to fasten the bottom and the top of your boxes. Use the correct type of tape for your application.
  • Place fragile items in the middle of your parcel and ensure that they do not touch the sides of your packaging.
  • Use padded envelops for sharp and irregularly shaped items to prevent them from piercing the outer packaging.
  • Place heavy and bulky items in the bottom of a box.
  • Wrap each items separately to maximise product protection.
  • Use “Fragile” or “Handle with Care” labels or tape if necessary.
  • Ensure that recipient’s details including their name, address and post code are clearly visible on the parce.l
