Packing items to prepare for courier
is a great way to ensure that your shipment arrives safely and on time. Here are some tips to help you get started:
1. Make sure the items are clean and dry.
2. Wrap fragile articles in bubble wrap, foam peanuts, or newspapers.
3. Place heavy items in plastic bags or boxes with sturdy handles (the U-Haul boxes work nicely).
4. Pack items with plenty of cushioning material between them so they don’t rattle around in transit!
Types Of Packaging
There are a number of types of packaging that couriers use to transport goods.
First, there’s the envelope. The standard envelope is a simple rectangular piece of paper with a flap on one side and adhesive on the other. The envelope is used to protect fragile objects like paper documents or letters and it can also be used to protect small, flat objects like photographs or postcards.
Second, there’s the box. A box is a container made of cardboard or another material. Boxes are often used for shipping larger items such as books or electronics so that they don’t get damaged during transit. Boxes can be either rectangular (with four sides) or square (with six sides). Rectangular boxes generally have more surface area than their square counterparts, but their corners provide more space for items within them to shift around while in transit.
Third, there’s the carton. A carton is any type of container made out of corrugated fiberboard, typically with flaps that fold over at each end to form an outer covering for whatever’s inside—which could be anything from clothing to electronics!
How to waterproof items for courier
Waterproofing can be the difference between a ruined shipment and one that arrives just as you ordered it. Here’s how to make sure your goods arrive in perfect condition.
-If possible, you should avoid shipping in temperatures below 10°C (50°F).
-Pack items in plastic bags; if you don’t have any, try wrapping them in newspaper or bubble wrap. The goal is to keep out moisture and air.
-Package fragile objects in boxes with plenty of padding around them. Don’t use Styrofoam peanuts—they’ll absorb water and will expand in size when they get wet, damaging your product inside. Instead, use shredded paper or even crumpled newspaper for cushioning.
-Make sure everything is sealed tightly so that no water can leak into your package from the outside either!
