Packaging your parcel for shipping to Nigeria

If you’re planning on sending a parcel from the UK to Nigeria then you want to be sure it will be well protected from the bumps and knocks which can occur on the way. The way you package your parcel makes all the difference when it comes to protecting the contents.

To avoid disappointment with your delivery simply follow these three simple steps:

1. A NEW BOX

Don’t be tempted to recycle a box for your packaging – it may contain hidden weaknesses that you can’t see. If you’re sending something heavier than 10kg then we recommend a double lined cardboard box for extra strength.

Safely packaging a parcel for international shipping

2. FILL WITH PACKING

Individually wrap all the contents before nestling them in packaging materials, such as packing peanuts or bubble wrap. Make sure there is at least 6cm between the contents and the edge of the box and that nothing moves when you shake it.

3. SEAL AND LABEL

Tape up your box with parcel tape in a Union Jack flag pattern. Go three times round the box in every direction, covering all seals and corners. Make sure your shipping labels are the only ones on the box and that they’re attached firmly and clearly.
