Customer Packing Tips and Requirements
- Always use new boxes. Check the certification stamp on the bottom to make sure your box is certified to handle the weight of the items you intend to put inside.
- Distribute the weight evenly inside the box
- Use bubble wrap, foam, paper, sealed air or other padding to provide at least 2 inches on all sides of your item as well as between items.
- Use the same filler to pack your items tight enough that they do not move inside the box. Don't over stuff. Make sure the box top is flat when closed.
- Small bubble wrap should be used for more delicate items. Sometimes it is wise to layer large bubble wrap on top of the small to provide extra insulation.
- If you intend to ship luggage, golf bags, plastic containers or other non-boxed items, make sure you are okay with the outside finish of these items arriving marked up and soiled. If the packaging is fragile, plastic containers, box the item before shipping.
