We would like to offer you some advice and guidance as to how you should package your items. Using the correct packaging in the right way is very important to ensure that your parcel arrives at its destination safely, and undamaged. It is worth pointing out at this stage that the most common reason for insurance claims being declined is due to insufficient packaging. To help you even further, you can click on either of the banners at the top or bottom of this page to be taken to The Packaging Store where you can purchase the necessary materials you need.
Your parcel will be handled many times during its journey from sender to recipient both by hand, and also by automatic machinery. The question you need to ask yourself once your item is packaged is “If this item was dropped from a height of 1 metre, would the contents get damaged?” if the answer is yes or maybe, then you have not sufficiently packaged your item. Use of ‘Fragile’ or ‘Handle with Care’ stickers is no substitute for correct packaging. ‘This Way Up’ labels are of no use at all as your parcel may well be sorted by taking a couple of trips along conveyor belts and through other machinery that cannot read!
