How Should You Pack Your Item for Delivery?

How should I pack my item for delivery?

Whether you are a new shipper or a seasoned one, packaging an item can be quite a feat. We’ve heard this question a lot from the shippers, and this is the kind of question that we can gladly answer for you.

We cannot stress enough the importance of good packaging to ensure that your items have adequate protection during transit.

Your packaging must follow these guidelines to help you prepare your item for the shipping process and we have brilliant packaging guidelines to help you get started.


#1. Your item needs to have external packaging.

Whatever you do, never send your item without packaging. That’s a big no-no. Your item must be covered with external packaging to cover 100% of its exposed area. You can either use a box or a poly mailer. And if you want to, you can also use bubble wrap.


#2. All fragile items must have a fragile sticker.

These two combos are a complete must have if you want to send any fragile item. Labelling your parcel with a fragile sticker gives extra protection for your item.


#3. Tracking label.

Kindly ensure that your parcel has its own unique tracking label for tracking purposes.


#4. Empty area.

If you find that the inside of your parcel has an empty area and gaps, don’t leave it be. But instead, fill it with fillings like Styrofoam.


#5. Clothing.

Don’t just stuff your clothing inside the polymailer. Fold it nicely before sending it to prevent the clothes from being crumpled or wrinkled while in delivery. Another brownie points to you; your customer will truly appreciate it.


#6. Electronic devices.

Are you sending a handphone or any electronic devices? You need to have them powered off and remove the battery if it is possible. And have the device’s box wrapped tightly and adequately.


#7. Irregular package.

Irregular items can be hard to pack. But you can always place them in a box. Make sure when you place the package in the polymailer, it is super tight and snugly. And if you find any empty spaces in between, kindly fill them up.


#8. Transport handling.

As a shipper, it is your responsibility to ensure that the package is packed correctly and can handle normal impact due to transport handling. Oh right, if you want to send a parcel with sensitive packaging per se gift boxes. Make sure you wrap them with bubble-wrap or shrink them and pack them in a cardboard box.


#9. Address label.

If you are using an old box or any old packaging, kindly check if it has any old addresses or tracking labels to avoid confusion.
