Packing is not always that fun. Whether you are packing to move or to ship products, finding the right box that will fit everything and protect your belongings or products can be overwhelming. We offer some tips on packing and some things to consider before “putting everything inside a box“.

The company that will deliver your package(s) probably delivers hundreds of boxes every day, so you can assume that they will prefer speed over being careful. Therefore, you should pack your boxes carefully and appropriately. First of all, when packing, think twice before reusing any box. It might sound like a good idea; after all you will be saving some money. But thinking long-term, small savings like reusing boxes will be outweighed if the package doesn’t arrive intact to the customer.

Another thing to keep in mind is to immobilize fragile items. Fragile items should be wrapped individually and kept away from the walls of the box. You can use cushioning material to fill the spaces between them. Always be aware of the size of the product that you are shipping. Don’t use large boxes to ship small items or vice versa because it will damage the item you are shipping. Secondly, if you pack something small in a large box, you’ll be wasting money on excessive packing materials.
