How should I pack my item to be sent by a courier company?

Here are some quick tips to help ensure that your items arrive in perfect condition:

  • Cover and wrap each and every item in the box separately because it is a much better way to protect the items while in transit.
  • Think through using polystyrene, bubble wrap and foam wrapping for internal packaging to prevent movement in the box.
  • Use strong inner and outer box to protect your items inside.
  • Seal the packages or the boxes with a strong tape securely around the edges to prevent damage.
  • Make sure to use a heavy duty/corrugated cardboard boxes for shipping much suitable if a new one.
  • Be aware as well that the address details cannot be soiled or exposed to water damage and ensure that the customs docs are securely fastened in plastic pouch or envelope.
  • Think of it as your obligation to lessen the chance of damage in transit; courier networks are vast carrying masses of parcels so guarantee to pack it properly to prevent the risk of any problems.
  • Keep in mind that parcels being sent next day also need packaging. Taking a minute of your time wrapping and securing your item can avoid an hour or more sorting out a claim with the protection cover policy that often comes with a delivery order.

Another important recent issue that came up is when customers are using old boxes, with old labels and stickers on. There is no issue using an old box as long as it is still sturdy and usable but what can cause the courier’s confusion and mix up is when old address labels or customs documents are still attached and this may mislead drivers or people handling the parcel.

Any old documentation, labels or stickers on a reused box should be removed to prevent a stress and any further issues which can also let to delay on your delivery or even far more worst is the parcel being returned.
