Packing fragile parcels

When it comes to packing fragile parcels, it’s important to choose the most suitable materials and techniques to keep your valuable cargo safe on the move.

Packing boxes need to be robust to withstand movement in transport, while lightweight designs keep shipping costs down. When you work with PACK & SEND, we specialise in finding a solution to suit your needs.

We only use high-quality protective materials in our packing process and our packing solutions are always bespoke to your fragile goods, so your items stay protected from door to door.

Fragile items should be packed in boxes that leave just enough room to fit packing infills, so valuable goods are packed in tightly without any room to move around.

For peace of mind, work with an expert packer. At PACK & SEND, we handle the entire process for you and custom fit our packing options to the needs of your parcel.

Wrapping fragile items

Fragile, awkward and valuable goods need to be wrapped tightly to avoid damage in transit.

Choose from a range of materials, including packing infills, paper and other cushioning materials, packing fragile items safely to avoid movement or damage while parcels are on the move.

When you work with PACK & SEND, you can be sure that our custom-fit boxes cradle your fragile cargo nicely, using best-in-class protective wrapping – for example, our foam-in-place solution, which absorbs shock to avoid damage.

We work with you to identify and deliver a bespoke packing solution for your fragile items, so you never get a one-size-fits-all product.

Wrapping packages can be stressful. That’s why PACK & SEND manages the whole operation for you, from collection and wrapping to delivery.

Sealing fragile parcels

Once your delicate items are packed safely, the container needs to be sealed to avoid movement or spills when being shipped around the world.

Depending on the size, weight, and type of container, it can be difficult to find the simplest and safest way to seal your parcel before transit. However, a range of adhesive tapes and plastic strapping is recommended to suit small parcels to large crates.

You can count on PACK & SEND to appropriately seal any packaging. From lightweight parcels to large and awkward shipping containers, we’ll work with you to get your fragile cargo delivered in the safest way possible.

We can even seal heavy-duty wooden pallets and containers, keeping your fragile parcels protected against damage during transit.

Labelling fragile parcels

Clear and correct labelling for your fragile parcels is not only important to prevent couriers from mishandling a package but it also gives more recourse with shipping companies should your parcel arrive damaged in any part of the world.

When sending fragile, awkward or valuable parcels, make sure to leave a note on the outside of the package – for example, using ‘fragile’ tape or simply a note to the courier.

At PACK & SEND, we know how much your fragile packages mean to you, and the last thing you need is broken or damaged goods.

That’s why we’ll label your package accordingly, so any fragile parcels can be clearly identified, and couriers know exactly how to handle, load and unload the parcel to minimise the risk of damage during shipping.
