Correct packaging = a secure consignment!

Useful tips:

  • Make sure the size of the packaging is suitable for the contents of the consignment to avoid damage.
  • Use special material to avoid the contents moving around.
  • ΧUse tape to seal the consignment.
  • Fragile items should be placed in the middle of the packaging, so as for them to not come into contact with the sides of the packaging.
  • Make sure that all liquids are in containers and sealed inside a plastic bag.
  • Remember that unsuitable packaging can damage the rest of the goods in the consignment.
  • Ensure that gifts are repackaged. Impressive packaging is not always the most suitable.
  • Wrap small items in paper.
  • Use a soft material to wrap around items such as disks, cassettes, and videocassettes.
  • Write the recipient’s address in clear capital letters, ensuring that all necessary details are provided.
  • Do not use the same box for a second consignment, but should this happen make sure the box is not damaged and remove all labels.

To be avoided:

  • Labels marked “fragile” or “caution” simply give extra information and under no circumstances replace appropriate packaging.
  • Remember that it is likely that any consignment will be subject to inspection by the authorities. For this reason, do not use an excessive amount of tape around the packaging.
  • Do not use bags made of fabric or textiles.

Please note that IDP accepts no responsibility for the advice it provides regarding packaging. The customer is responsible for ensuring that the packaging is appropriate prior to transportation.
