Pack your shipments right

There’s no need to think out of the box for this. Follow our packing method for your shipment to arrive its destination safe and sound.
Step 1

Choose the right box

Select a box based on your item’s size. Add 5 cm to the item’s length, height, and depth for cushioning material.

Step 2

Wrap, wrap, wrap

Yeap, we recommend 3 layers of bubble wrap before packing your item into the shipping box. It should cover all sides of your item(s).

For fragile items, please use the box-in-box method.

Step 3

It needs to fit in

It’s important to minimise empty space in the box to prevent items from moving about during transit. Cushion the empty space with peanut foam, air cushion, air pillow, bubble wrap, styrofoam, etc.

Step 4

Seal with a H

Tape your box with the H-taping method using cellophane tape of a minimum 4.8cm in width. Use labels to ensure appropriate handling, transport, and storage.
