From packaging tips to shipping prices

Sturdy packaging is very important when sending parcels. The parcels travel along conveyor belts in depots and are loaded onto various lorries and delivery vehicles. Here are a few important tips:

1. Use a sturdy cardboard box.

2. Fill it completely with padding.

3. Carefully seal the parcel with packing tape.

4. Do not use ribbons or other Christmas decorations that could get stuck on conveyor belts.
