PACKING ADVICE

Making sure your items arrive safely

When packing your boxes


  • Always use the correct size box for your item to avoid jostling in transit.
  • Use strong, good-quality boxes and materials and remove any old labels from reused boxes.
  • Don't overload boxes and use plenty of padding inside, such as bubble wrap, newspaper, or other packaging materials.
  • When sending data storage media, ideally wrap each item separately and ensure they are well cushioned.
  • Put gift-wrapped items into another box to avoid damage.
  • Make sure liquids, powders, semi-liquids or any strong-smelling items are stored in correctly sealed leak-proof containers, wrapped in plastic bags, and held upright in boxes clearly marked with arrows to indicate the direction they should be stored.
  • Protect sharp items securely with wrapping around scissors and knives.
  • Secure all boxes with strong packaging tape or a strapping machine.
  • Write labels in all caps clearly, and don't cover them with tape or film.
  • Include both the address and sender details inside the parcel so we can still complete overnight delivery even if the outer label is detached.
