Satchel or Box?

Satchels are made out of plastic and are great for smaller items that are not delicate and do not have sharp pointy edges. Bubble inserts are available to provide your parcel with extra protection. Boxes are made from sturdy cardboard, and perfect for larger items and contents that need more protection.

 

Pack it

You can never have too much packing and here are some guidelines:
• Use bubble wrap, shredded paper, corrugated cardboard and polystyrene nuggets.
• Individually wrap items to ensure that they don’t damage each other.
• Markings like ‘Fragile’ and ‘This Way Up’ are good.
• Sharp or pointy items need to be packaged extra carefully.
• Bendable items like cards or documents should be between strong pieces of cardboard.
• Don’t send delicate or sharp items in a satchel.
• Do not overload the satchels! Stretching or warping can cause the plastic to tear or rupture.

 

Address it Correctly!

Most of undelivered freight is due to incorrect addressing. Follow these guidelines to ensure your package gets delivered.
• Check the address is correct. The receivers phone number is always handy!
• Include your name, return address and phone number.
• We do not deliver to P.O Box numbers. Sorry.
• Business addresses are good. There are more chances that someone will be present.

 

Seal it

Securing your product by sealing it well
• Use tape on three open edges to seal the boxes.
• A good tape is at least 4cm in width.
• Satchels have a seal that is “anti tamper”. Good for keeping everything safely inside.
