1. THE BOX

New boxes are stronger, don't risk a second hand one if you can help it. Old boxes can seem sturdy, but could be hiding flaws that could make your box burst or be crushed in transit. Sending more than 10kg? Get a double-lined box.

Wrap everything individually before putting it in the box and surround it with packaging materials so that there's at least a 6cm cushion between your goods and the box wall. When you shake your packed box, nothing should move.

3. THE SEAL
