1. Select the Correct Box Size
Your things might shift about during transport if the box is too big, while a box that is too tiny might not offer enough padding. Make sure your box has two inches or more of cushioning space on all sides.
Items in Double Boxes That Are Fragile
Consider packing fragile items first in a smaller box, then putting that box inside a larger one with padding in between if you're shipping something.
3. Use foam peanuts or bubble wrap
Your things should be bubble wrapped or surrounded by foam peanuts for maximum protection. Make sure there are no open areas that could be used for mobility.
4. Seal every edge
Seal the box's seams and flaps with sturdy packing tape. This will stop any dust or water from getting in and will also stop the box from opening up suddenly while in transportation.
5. Label everything
Include the recipient's address in a legible and unambiguous manner. Include any pertinent customs details if you're exporting internationally. If the external label is damaged, placing a second label inside the box can serve as a useful fallback.
6. Perform a Shake Test
Give your box a light shake once it has been filled and sealed. Add more padding if you hear or feel any movement.
7. Use fragile stickers
Using Fragile stickers will alert handlers to be cautious if your box contains breakable items. But keep in mind that this isn't a replacement for quality packaging.
8. Prevent Overloading
Despite the temptation to put as much as you can in one box, overloading the box increases the likelihood of damage and erodes the box's structural integrity.
9. Keep Things Dry
Consider including a silica gel pack or bagging any items (such as electronics or documents) that could be harmed by moisture.
