How to wrap a package for shipping?
- Pack items in correct boxes, seal them with strong tape and ensure a tight seal to avoid damage during transport.
- For safe shipping, use new, heavy-duty double corrugated cardboard boxes. Consider double-boxing the item for extra protection.
- Use strong tape and plastic wrap to secure boxes and packets during transit.
- For items that come with ‘display packaging’, it is recommended to place them in an outer box before sending.
- If you’re recycling a used cardboard box, make sure to remove all old stickers and labels from previous shipments.
- For better protection during transit and to reduce the risk of damage to other items, wrap each item in the box individually.
- Explore options like polystyrene, bubble wrap, or even newspaper for interior packaging to prevent movement in the box.
- The contents must be fully cushioned to prevent direct outer contact.
Once your order is placed, we will send you a prepaid shipping label. All you have to do is print it out and securely attach it to the outside of your package.
It is important to affix three copies of the customs documents on the outside of the package to ensure smooth processing of international shipments. You can place these in a plastic wallet or envelope for added protection. However, if you do not have one, a standard envelope labelled ‘Customs’ should suffice.
To ship a parcel safely, you need to know what items are not allowed in a courier network. We have a list of prohibited and restricted items created with input from our courier partners.
