PREPARATION

  • Turn the box upside down and completely cover the bottom flaps with tape giving much attention to the
    flap joints. Apply the tape on the bottom edges/corners 3-4 times for additional security. Please buy good
    quality packaging tape. (Huwag po tayo magtipid ng parcel tape kung mahal natin ang padala sa pamilya
    natin). Please do not compromise the security of your own boxes.
  • We strongly advise you to completely tape all the outside parts with good quality strong Brown packaging
    tape. Please note Duct tape is not a good packaging tape, with our years of experience it can easily come off
    in hot weather condition and can easily soften the boxes.

FILLING THE BOXES

  • We strongly advise you to completely tape all the outside parts with good quality strong Brown packaging
    tape. Please note Duct tape is not a good packaging tape, with our years of experience it can easily come off
    in hot weather condition and can easily soften the boxes.
  • -Before filling up your boxes make sure you apply additional protection at the bottom e.g. putting additional cut out card board boxes, towels and or used clothing.

  • Fragile/breakable items must be wrapped properly with bubble wrap, clothing or towel and secure it in the middle part of the box. Very delicate items must be secured properly to avoid breakage: you may put it in a hard plastic container before putting it in your box. Please avoid mixing fragile items with hard objects like canned goods.

  • Liquids– tighten and secure the cap with tape. We strongly advise customers to add additional reinforcements inside the box when sending liquid in plastic containers e.g. dish washing, shampoos, detergents etc. This type of plastic container are NOT designed to resist heavy pressure when your box is loaded in the container, therefore we do not guarantee that liquid will not leak.

  • -Customers sending liquid in more than 5 liters volume containers e.g. large dish washing liquid, fabric conditioner and cooking oil must be placed in a wooden box or plywood for extra protection. We do not supply wooden box but you may fabricate your own.

  • -Do not overfill your box making sure that the upper flaps are kept flat and tight together before applying your packing tape.

  • -Bulky, overfilled or oversized will incur additional charges.

CLOSING YOUR BOX

  • Seal your box completely with good quality tape. Again, apply 3-4 layers of tape on every corner joint.
