How to Pack


Packing your goods correctly is an important factor in ensuring that they arrive safely at the destination.

 

Here are some useful tips to assist you

  • Ensure that your chosen packaging is in good condition eg: suitcases not ripped or damaged.
  • Acceptable packaging - suitcases, backpacks, cardboard cartons, plastic drums.
  • If you can't lift the item, it is too heavy.
  • Be aware that it is an offence to carry Dangerous Goods.
  • Industry approved quality packing cartons are available for sale at Exportair.
  • Bicycle packs are often available from your local bike shops.

 

We recommend you complete a packing list. We will be happy to attach this to the documentation accompanying your freight. We also recommend padlocking any suitcases etc and securely taping cartons.

All items must be individually labelled with your:

  • Name
  • Address at destination
  • Phone Number at destination

 

We suggest particularly fragile items are professionally packed to minimise the risk of damage. Ask our staff for referrals to quality packing companies.

Separate insurance is recommended for breakable and valuable items.

Suitcases, backpacks, cardboard cartons and plastic drums are acceptable for packaging.
