Recommendations on packaging

Where possible the item(s) should be returned in the original packaging including any packing. Please refrain from using substandard or damaged packaging to return your goods. Re-use packaging where possible. . When recycling packaging, remember to remove the old shipping labels and stickers. Please also ensure the integrity of the packaging before use.

Use a quality carton made of high-quality corrugated cardboard to ensure strength and stability during transit. Double walled as a minimum standard especially if a heavier item. Always select the right sized box for its contents. Under-filled boxes are at risk of collapse and damage. Over-filled boxes are likely to burst open and become vulnerable. Additional packaging is required if you can feel or hear the contents moving inside the container. We highly recommend the use of infill or padding to restrict movement & protect your contents.

Correctly secure and seal the carton with parcel tape designed for shipping, with all edges taped to prevent the carton from opening. Over-wrapping your container with cellophane is not advised. Over-box the original manufacture’s packaging, especially for high value goods.

We do not recommend the use of plastic banding, if you do need to use banding on your parcel, please ensure it is tight to the box and fit for purpose. Always over-bag or box your items, to ensure they are suitable for transit through our network. Packaging for cylindrical goods Items that roll should be pack in triangular or rectangular packaging to prevent movement during the sortation process.
