Packing sports equipment

Given the expensive and intricate nature of modern sports equipment, it can be notoriously difficult to package safely and securely.

When shipping sports equipment – whether it’s small personal weights, large rowing machines, or treadmills – ample packing space and durable materials are key for safe delivery. Packaging must be robust enough to withstand any movement during transit.

If you’re unsure how to pack your sports equipment or just need additional support getting your items ready for transit, PACK & SEND can manage the entire process for you.

We have 25 years of experience offering high-quality bespoke packaging services for sports equipment of all shapes and sizes. No matter the dimensions, weight, or cost, we’ll be there to find the best solution for you.

Wrapping delicate sports equipment

In many ways, wrapping items is more important than the packaging itself. Cushioning materials help to not only protect contents but also shield any fragile protrusions or delicate components from potential damage while on the move.

For example, when shipping exercise equipment – like bikes, or rowing machines – delicate parts like handles and HUDs will need to be wrapped with particular care to avoid damage.

Cushioning the package with the appropriate wrapping and void fill packaging makes all the difference during transit. Foam blocks or pellets made from a soft material effectively surround the contents of the container, offering suitable protection.

Luckily, PACK & SEND guarantees that your sports and exercise equipment is wrapped securely and we even tailor our wrapping to suit your items.

Even heavy and awkwardly shaped items are no hassle for us. We offer a range of heavy-duty wrapping options to keep your sports equipment safe while also guarding against general wear and tear during transit.

Sealing sports equipment

Once your sports equipment has been wrapped and packed securely, the container needs to be properly sealed.

Depending on the size, weight and type of container, it can be tricky to know the correct way to seal the package, especially for long-haul transit. In most cases, adhesive tape offers ample support – whereas staples or plastic strapping may be needed for large containers like wooden crates.

You can trust PACK & SEND to seal even the largest and most awkward packaging. With 25 years of experience, we know what it takes to get packages safely from A to B.

Warranty Cover

Whatever the contents, we treat every package with the same care and respect.

Sports equipment is often valuable and even fragile. Whether you’re transporting expensive new equipment – or just your lucky gear – you should consider getting warranty cover.

Our comprehensive warranty protection keeps you covered should the worst happen. We’ll work with you to find the best cover for your specific items – from golf clubs to surfboards.

Specialist delivery services

Because shipping sports equipment usually involves transporting high-value items, they often require more delicate handling than traditional packages.

Our specialist shipping services help create one-of-a-kind packages designed exclusively for your shipments, providing the best possible protection against any movement during transit.

For example, if you’re looking to ship heavy gym equipment, we can pack these into specialist crates to ensure safe and secure delivery.
