Our Packing Service
We take pride in our packing standard, skills and knowledge. It’s one of the things we are best known for – we ensure your items get to you safely. We consider each item and package individually and our staff know the best and most efficient ways to pack items of all sizes and weight.
Prefer to pack yourself?
Not a problem. To ensure your cargo arrives safely, you must take great care and patience in the materials you use and the way you pack. Here are some of our tips:
Tip 1: Use high quality brown tape, ideally Vibac tape. This tape has worked wonders for us for years now! Cheap tapes don’t have a strong enough adhesive to hold over long periods of time in varying temperature, conditions and when being constantly handled.
Tip 2: When selecting a box, don’t use old crisp boxes or other single walled cartons. They tend to open from the sides and lose shape as well rip and tear with the slightest of impact. There’s danger that the contents will tear out through the box if it gets turned to the side. We sell boxes at both our office and warehouse.
Tip 3: Regardless of the box you use, ensure all edges are taped up, along with the seams and staples.
Tip 4: Don’t pack all your light items in one box – split the load evenly over all of your boxes so you don’t get charged based on volume weight. Pack the heavy stuff at the bottom and light items at the top. Remember to also put arrows on the box indicating which side up the box should be transported.
