How to pack multiple fishing rods?

You can send numerous rods depending on the size of the tube you’re using. Just guarantee that you have enough space for protecting all the ends with bubble wrap. Face the rods in opposite directions when packing them and then organize them so that the butts stick out an inch or two of the tips, in order to ensure that the rods are protected.

How to prepare fishing rod before shipping?

Before shipping, fishing rods need to be packed appropriately because they are also considered as fragile items that entail special needs when packing. You have the option to add protection cover to your booking as long as you have packaged your equipment properly.

Because of their extensive length, Rods and poles can is not that easy to pack therefore they need a very specific type of container. Fortunately, there are storage options out there, and with some care and attention when it comes to packaging, rods can be shipped perfectly safely.

How to post fishing rods internationally?

Other than the length of the fishing rods, there are no any problems posting it internationally

Limitations are a bit tighter on long items being sent overseas as it can be expensive for the couriers to move these kinds of items. On condition that your package is around 155 cm max in length you can still book a courier service and have it delivered, ideal for telescopic fishing rods.

What to prepare when packaging a fishing rod?

Primary, you’ll need the usual packing materials like bubble wrap, polystyrene packing tape and a container that’s strong enough to hold such subtle contents. However, you only have a few options to choose from. The most common one is a purpose-made fishing tube or case and if you have these and decided to use, you’ll still need to pack it into a box for shipping because it should be protected as well to avoid dents or any damages. The only concern on using this is that it all gets a bit too large that is why we suggested the following instead.

Go to your nearest tackle shop and ask if they have any leftover tubes from rods they’ve had delivered to them and there’s a chance that you get it free of charge. If not attainable, sewer pipe or gutter down-pipe bought from a DIY store will be okay. Or you can use the tubes used inside rolls of carpet.

Cutting the makeshift tubes down to size, make sure to leave about two inches of space on either end. This makes the rod ends are further away from danger, and there’s plenty of space to add padding.
