How to Pack Your Parcel

Who doesn’t love beautiful, well-sealed packaging when received. Just seeing the exterior of the box you are assured that the item inside has arrived without any damage. Hush! What a relief!

However, if you want to send that well-sealed box across the country via a local courier company, you’ll need to put in a lot of work and time. If you operate a small business or need to courier items on a regular basis, these tips to pack your parcel given below will come in handy whether you ship it internationally or domestically.

  • Select the Correct Box

The packing box should be large enough to accommodate your goods with a wide space in all directions. It is advised that you use a fresh box. Using a used box may cause damage to your goods since it may have degraded during the first usage.

Cardboard and corrugated boxes are also viable options. They are available in a variety of styles and sizes, including single-walled and double-walled. You can select the box based on your product.

If you are shipping bridal jewellery to a customer, your box should be somewhat larger than the size of your product, leaving 3 – 5 cm (2 inches) between your product and the edges of the box. To protect your products from impact, you will need to fill that area with cushioning materials.

If you are mailing any items, please leave 3 – 5 cm (2 inches) between each item. It might be difficult to decide which box to use when packing many things. Our Smart Boxing function will assist you in packing multi-item purchases into the fewest number of boxes feasible.

  • Product Packaging

Wrap the item with a medium that will protect it, such as bubble wrap. Then, insert packaging wrapped all the way around it and set it in the packing box. They will prevent your goods from sliding around inside the packaging box. Remember to leave 3 – 5 cm (2 inches) between your goods and the box’s sides.

Fragile objects should be put in the centre of the box, away from the sides. Fill the space on all sides with cushioning materials.

  • Close the Box

The box should then be closed and sealed with high-quality adhesive tape. You can double package your product if you believe it will be damaged during shipping. It will provide the goods additional protection. However, don’t over-package your items in a double box, since this will offer your consumers an unpleasant unwrapping experience and raise your shipping costs.

Notably, double boxing is the act of putting your packed product into a bigger box and sandwiching packing inserts between the two boxes. Then, using tape, shut and seal the bigger box.

  • Package Labeling

The final step is to address the shipment according to the courier company’s specifications. If you utilised an old box, make certain that all of the previous delivery labels and addresses have been removed.

Some carriers need you to include a bar code on the label, while others want you to address the goods box. It is recommended that you provide at least two copies of the delivery address and bar code label with the shipment in any scenario.

Customers are also concerned about the quality of the packaging. Poor packaging may ruin their mood before they ever see the thing inside. Aside from all of the packing tips, the most critical one is to utilise a new box. This will not only provide you with client satisfaction, but it will also eliminate the possibility of it becoming weak and tearing off. To keep the object safe, wrap it in newspapers, foam, crushed cardboard, or other materials.
