Any packing tips?

The key is not to have any “void” in the parcels. If you are unable to fill the box(es) you are sending then cut the cardboard boxes down so that the flaps are enlarged, but the box smaller.
  • Fill the box up leaving as even a top layer as possible.
  • Using a pencil mark the tallest point in the box and then mark all four sides of the box with this measurement.
  • Cut vertically down the corner folds until you arrive at the mark which represents the maximum height.
  • Fold the flaps over and cut off any excess so that the box folds evenly, Fold the flaps over and tape your box shut.
Remember, excessive “void” may result in your package rupturing in transit, and items may be lost or damaged.
