Top Packaging Tips

  • Wrap items within a parcel individually, ensuring items cannot move around in transit
  • Use padding so that the item/s do not touch any of the sides of the box
  • Use strong packaging to protect the item in transit, preferably strong rigid boxes as your parcel may have other parcels on top of it during parts of its journey (black bags/bin liners should not be used)
  • Use original packaging where possible, however please conceal the nature of the item
  • Make sure packaging is securely sealed using strong tape
  • Attach your label to the parcel securely ensuring the barcode is not covered with any tape
