Sending Gifts

Sending gifts is not a problem with Dropbox2go. We can help you find the best service for you considering the timeframe and the price that best suits your needs.

Packaging your gifts

We understand that the beautiful packaging and the ribbon on top is part of the gift but if you are sending this via a courier service, it is not recommended that the gift is sent with just the plain gift wrapper. Following our packaging guidelines is very important.

  • Use a sturdy box. You can place your gift in a box then place again in a stronger box * Use a packaging tape.
  • Make sure the gift is steady to make sure it won’t be moving inside the box
  • Use as plenty packaging tape as needed to make sure of the security of the gift. Make sure that you have checked our restricted items list before sending a gift as there are items such as food, aerosols, liquids, batteries are not allowed to send. (Please check the restricted items list for complete details)

Weight and Measure

After you have properly packed the goods, weigh the item and make sure to give the accurate measurement to the courier to avoid being declared as an incorrect weight by the courier which may cause delays in sending your parcel.

Dimensions

Make sure to provide us accurate measurements of the parcel as well. We would need the height, width and length of the box. You may use a tape measure to do so and make sure to give the volumetric weight.

Labels

Some couriers do not require printed labels as their drivers bring them for you. But if you are not booked under these couriers, you need to make sure that labels are printed and attached to the parcel prior to collection. This goes with customs documents as well. The progress of your package can be monitored by you online by following a link which will show on your account dashboard.

Contact information

Make sure that the phone number you will provide is active and current. This is to be sure that the couriers will be able to contact the recipient for a smooth delivery transaction.
