The general rules for packaging a parcel are to use strong packing tape to seal your parcel or box, make sure labels are firmly attached and clearly visible, and utilise internal cushioning such as bubble wrap, foam or newspaper to create extra padding for your goods. Wrap each item individually to protect them from movement.
Remember, the aim of packaging your parcel is to prevent damage to itself or other freight during transit and for it to be safe for the delivery drivers. Note that if an item is unsuitably packaged or labelled for transit, you may incur an additional charge to cover the cost of rectification.
For further information regarding packaging we recommend viewing the guides listed on some of our carriers’ websites (for links refer to FAQ What are the packaging guidelines?).
