As you know, during the pandemic and with COVID-19 still around the corner, surprising us every day, packages have been coming in high demand to those who have purchased products from stores online, or if you are a family member or friend trying to give a present to someone. 

Packages and fragile materials that we send to people by shipping have been our only way of contact with one another during the pandemic, as everything may still be shut down in some areas. With that being said, it’s important you know how to take care of the fragile materials that you might deliver to that special someone. Here are some tips on how to easily use wooden boxes or crates to ship packages to your customers, clients or friends.

  1. In many cases, shipping containers and boxes are more preferable when sending products or fragile items to people you know; this way, there’s a lower chance of it breaking, and it makes it easier for consumers or delivery services to get across borders. 
  2. Make sure you always have enough wrapping materials; this means you should either have wrapping paper or bubble wrap available to you if you plan on delivering or sipping out fragile items.
  3. Make sure that your packages are protected from different elements or natural weather forces; this way, you will know that the item you have shipped made it safely to your customer or family member.
  4. Always make sure that your wrapping is attached or tied securely. This way, you can be comforted knowing that fragile items have lower chances of breaking or shattering on the journey of their shipping process.
  5. Don’t wrap items too tight. With the pressure the item has on it already, if any wrapping paper or bubble wrap is stuck on too tight, there’s a chance of it breaking.

With that being said, you can see that there are so many factors to think about when shipping out expensive or heavy/fragile materials to any of your customers or friends. Make sure that you are comfortable in knowing that the packaging has been done securely and safely and you’ve given enough space for your item to release some of its pressure.
