Always start off by choosing the right box or container for whatever you are sending. Ideally you want this to be as strong and rigid as possible whilst remaining lightweight. This will help to protect the contents whilst also keeping your shipping costs down.
If you are breakable goods opt for a container that is slightly larger than the contents. That way you can wrap these items in bubble wrap or packing paper to protect them. In addition, you can fill the voids with materials such as polystyrene to keep everything cushioned.
When shipping fragile items that need to be handled carefully it is important to indicate it on the box. Fragile tape is a good idea. You can also use stickers to indicate which end is the top if the package should be kept upright.
Weighing your packages carefully is important so you can get a clear idea of the postage costs. If you fail to do this you could be shocked by the price, especially when the weight of the goods and packing materials are added together.
Like with all mail you need to ensure the address is correct and not covered over. Most importantly, make sure the postcode and property number is prominent. In addition include a return address.
