PACKING HINTS

– Seal Carton Edges

From time of collection to delivery to your home in Brunei your cartons will be handled several times, packed into a shipping container and transported 3000miles to Brunei so it’s important that your cartons are packed properly to ensure they arrive at your home in the same condition they were collected.

Ensure cartons are sealed with heavy duty tape around the edges and centre, (see example below) this will increase Security and help maintain the cartons rigidity in transport.

Pack cartons to maximum capacity

Always pack cartons to their maximum capacity, cartons that are not full may collapse or split in transit . If you have remaining space in your cartons, use a filler such as screwed up newspaper so that when you close the carton lid it meets resistance from the carton contents.

Use appropriate cartons for items being sent

Use the correct cartons for items being sent, if a large quantity of books , use book cartons (mod 10) for a mixture of clothes and books use a medium size carton such as a mod. 20′ , for cartons of mainly clothes use a linen carton or the mod. 30 carton. View Packing Rates.

The weight of each carton should be a maximum of approximately 30 kgs, helping our collection team and avoiding your cartons splitting due to being too heavy.

Fragile Items

Line the inside of the carton with bubblewrap and individually wrap each piece, noting that plates etc. should be packed on their edges and glasses and cups on their rims.
