Packing Tips

When you have been in the delivery and shipping service as long as we have you learn how to do things a certain way. That’s why we have produced a handy list of tips for how to pack and lift heavy boxes.

  • Try and match the box with the item size. If the box is oversized this can lead to collapse and an over-filled box may burst.
  • Choose the correct packaging for the item – use double layered boxes for valuable or fragile products.
  • Use bubble wrap or similar packaging material particularly when protecting fragile items.
  • Fill empty space in the box with a filler such as polystyrene chips.
  • Ensure box labels are clearly displayed.

Lifting Tips

  • Plan the lift before you do it. Are there any obstructions along the way that may cause you to stumble?
  • When lifting try not to bend your back or twist your body.
  • Keep the heaviest part of the load near your body.
  • When moving with the load, look ahead and move smoothly.
  • Put the load down with the same care as when lifting to avoid putting strain on your back.
