We know how important it is that your parcel arrives safely and undamaged. Packaging items carefully gets them off to a good start.


1. Choose a good quality box

A double walled box, especially for deliveries that contain fragile items, secured appropriately is best.

2. Choose the right sized box

Boxes that are too small could mean the contents get lost. Boxes that are too large are likely to collapse if another parcel is placed on top of it during delivery.

3. Protect your items

Bubble wrap, packing peanuts, foam and newspaper can all be used to protect your items.

4. Wrap each item in the box individually

When sending multiple items within one box it’s recommended that each item is wrapped individually. This offers better protection for your items and reduces movement.

5. Seal the parcel with packing tape

Seal all open edges of the parcel with wide parcel tape on both the top and bottom of your package to ensure it doesn’t open during transit.

6. Labeling your parcel

Always use clear, accurate address labels on your parcels.
