INSTRUCTIONS FOR PACKING FOR SAFE AND SECURE TRANSIT
PACKING A BOX IS JUST NOT DUMPING ITEMS IN AND SEALING IT. FOR SAFE AND SECURE TRANSPORT OF CARGO, GOODS MUST BE WELL AND PROFESSIONALLY PACKED. POORLY PACKED BOX CAN CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE GOODS INSIDE DURING TRANSIT. HERE ARE A FEW A TIPS EXPLAINING THE RIGHT WAY TO PACK.
Preferably always use a new box. Should you decide on using a perused box check it for any damage both inside/out and if it can hold your goods during transit.
- Make sure you check our SPC Box is delivered to you in perfectly good condition. An ideal box should be durable and in good condition without tears, punctures or damages
- Prior to filling the SPC Box wrap the base of the box with HEAVY DUTY PACKING TAPE. This is very important to ensure that any items in the box don't fall through the bottom, especially during transit.
- For reused boxes, ensure to remove all and any type of labels or stickers if, and make sure there are no holes, tears, or corner dents in the box.
- PACK HEAVY ITEMS ON THE BOTTOM OF THE BOX AND LIGHTER ITEMS ON TOP.
- Our SPC boxes available in various sizes are designed to hold the weights they are made for. However you are free to use your own boxes if they are sturdy and in good condition,
-Overstuffing is not allowed. Packages should not go beyond the flaps line of the boxes.
- Odd or irregular-shaped items, need extra care while packing. Ensure that any sharp edges are well protected.
- For items such as Televisions, Computers, Home Theatres and such other electronic items original manufacturers packing is highly recommended if and only if it is in usable condition and can withstand the transit. Should the original packing not be available the items must be packed first with a double or more layers of bubble wrap and place in a cardboard box of the right or bigger size. Wherever possible remove the base stand or any such attachments. For items with glass screens place a sheet of thermo foam in front of the screen as an additional protection.
- For items with batteries such as laptops, make sure that the battery is inserted into the unit, but it unit should be in the OFF mode.
- For gadgets such as IPods, IPads, Cell Phones, Gaming Devices, etc. the battery or power source must not be inserted into the unit, and securely placed separately in the unit package.
- For items where the batteries are not removable, the unit should be in the OFF mode.
- While packing liquid items such as make-ups (Mascara, Liquid Foundation), creams, lotions, deodorants, hair/shower gels, shampoo, cologne etc. ensure that the container is leak proof and well sealed with tape. Pack the container in a plastic with suitable and sufficient absorbent material. Use separators when there are more breakable liquid containers.
- For fragile items such as glassware (Mirror, Kitchenware, Laboratory Equipment, etc), ceramics (cookware, plates, cups, vases, tiles etc.) need extra care while packing to ensure that goods arrive intact at destination. Pack each piece with paper towel or bubble wrap. Place the items vertically in the box.
- Do not include perishable items such as chocolates, butter, mayonnaise etc that could spoil and cause damage to other goods.
- Pack all items in the box and ensure that there are no gaps or empty space. All gaps and empty space should be filled with may be paper shavings, old news papers, or such other material.
- Seal the box properly, preferably with extra adhesive tape, shrink wrap and belt is possible.
- Do not overload box beyond recommended height.
- Affix placards with details of shipper and consignee clearly written (preferably printed) at least on two sides
