Packaging your Parcel

There are often bumps or knocks to a parcel when it is in transit – that’s unavoidable when you’re moving goods halfway across the world. To make sure that the contents of your package arrive in the same condition that they left in, you need to package them up well.


There’s nothing as important in protecting your goods as a new, strong box. Old boxes may burst or be crushed in transit, even if they look sturdy, so it’s best to use a new, double corrugated cardboard box for every shipment.

Safely packaging a parcel for international shipping


You should individually wrap your goods in bubble wrap before placing them in your box. Use plenty of packing material to suspend your items in the box, making sure no part of them are touching the walls of the box.


Use plenty of packaging tape to seal your box – it helps support weak spots. Wrap tree times around your package in a Union Flag pattern, then apply your shipping labels so that all information is clearly visible.
