At Transco Cargo, we give you the option of letting us do the boxing and packaging for your at an added charge, or you are able to tackle it yourself. However, we do recommend that they adhere to packaging safety tips that we relay here. First and foremost, choose the containment option correctly.

A rule of thumb when partaking in boxing and packaging safety tips when shipping small or large packages is “always use packing materials”. If you do not choose to pack your belonging safely and securely within the box when handed over to ship overseas, we cannot guarantee that the goods will make the passage safely. After all, it is a long journey and if you have taken it on to box and pack your personal effects yourself, that responsibility lies in you. Therefore, speak to us about getting yourself packing peanuts, packing foam, packaging paper, or bubble wrap to ensure that there are no empty pockets that can be easily damaged during movement of your personal cargo during transport. This is especially important with cardboard boxes as they are after all, made out of cardboard.
