This service is optional but higly recommended, especialy for fragile items. We have experience in packaging stemming fromm our shipping experience. Packaging done to an item being shipped determines whether the item will arrive in good condition and on time.
How We Do It
We always use new boxes that still have all the original protective qualities. The more times a box is used, the more it loses its original protective qualities, so a previously used box may not adequately protect your shipment. Boxes vary in strength, we will choose the appropriate strength depending on content being shipped.
Cushioning the contents is also very important after choosing the right box. Each item is surrounded by at least two inches (5.08 cm) of cushioning and placed at least two inches (5.08 cm) away from the walls of the box. This prevents product-against-product damage and protects contents from shock and vibration, which can pass from the outside of the box to the contents.
Materials used for cushioning include
- Air-encapsulated plastic (small and large cell bubble sheeting)
- Inflatable packaging (air bags)
- Expanded polystyrene “peanuts” (loose fill)
- Engineered foam enclosures
Lastly we close the container securely. We use strong tape, 2 inches in width or more.
