Clothes and soft furnishings can be packaged in plenty of layers of plastic, but the majority of items for Oxfordshire parcel delivery should be boxed up. There are cardboard tubes you can use for some things too.
Recycling boxes that have been used for previous purposes is a good policy. However, make sure they are still strong and remove all the paperwork and identifying data from any previous delivery, to avoid confusion.
Make sure there are no loose bits (including tape hanging off) or sticky surfaces.
When placing items in a box for parcel delivery from Oxfordshire, it is best to cushion them using any one of a variety of lightweight materials. This includes bubble wrap, packing beads or foam “peanuts”. The environmentally-friendly option is shredded newspaper (not scrunched) or even popcorn.
Pack this around to fill gaps and spaces. It is good to have a layer of protection against the sides of the box for breakables, and make sure the box is not so snug that the items press against the sides.
Pay particular attention to protruding pieces of your item, and making sure items don’t rub together in transit.
Having your box full before you arrange parcel delivery in Oxfordshire is not just to cushion what is inside. Having a full box gives it more resilience against being dented from the outside too.
Now you have your gift, goods or personal items all boxed up – and sealed with good quality tape – it is time to add a clear and legible address, that won’t smudge or rip off.
Double check the address – especially any complex or quirky spellings, and please always use the postcode.
For example, there is a London Road in Oxford and a London Road in Bicester. In fact many UK towns and cities have London Roads. The postcode can make a big difference in tracking down the right address quickly.
Contact your courier if you think of any obstacles or issues that may effect the swift and efficient delivery of your parcel.
