Packing Tips

How to Pack your Excess Baggage:

You can pack and send your excess baggage using any suitcase, back pack, rucksack or packing box you like. Just remember your excess baggage has to travel to the other side of the world and proper packaging will help us deliver your goods in the same condition that we received them. Be sure to have plenty of sturdy cardboard cartons, packing paper, sealing tape and a marker pen, as careful packing prevents breakage and loss of small and fragile items. Avoid damage to your goods and make maximum use of your storage space by following these simple packing tips:

  • Use new rigid corrugated cartons (if using a suitcase or backpack make sure the items inside are securely packed as per below).
  • Check the gross weight limit on the bottom of these boxes and do not exceed this limit.
  • If reusing a carton, make sure none of the sides or flaps are bent, torn or punctured. Remove or cross out old labels, markings and scan codes.
  • Pack with shipping foam, bubble wrap or other packing material. This will protect your shipment against the shock that may occur when packages come in contact with each other or hard surfaces. Wrap each item separately and completely, and surround each item with bubble wrap.
  • Protect sharp and pointed objects with added packing material.
  • Fragile items, such as glass and ceramics, need extra packaging. Use bubble wrap and place the item in a separate box inside the packing box.
  • Ship packages separately - do not bind several together.
  • Wrap each item separately.
  • Secure heavy objects to prevent shifting.
  • Don't forget to create an itemised packing list per carton/suitcase.
  • Close and seal cartons securely using appropriate packing tape.
  • If you need further information or assistance, contact us and a member of the World Baggage team will be only too happy to help you out with more packing tips and suggestions.

Addressing Your Package Label

Now that you have packed your excess baggage, it is a mandatory requirement that you affix an address label to every box, bag or suitcase that you are intending on sending as unaccompanied baggage. Follow the tips below or click here to check out our baggage label maker and follow the instructions.

  • Provide complete recipient addresses, including phone numbers.
  • Place shipping labels on the top surface of your box to increase your chances for preferred orientation.
  • Backup information, include your address and the destination address inside shipment as well (business cards are ideal).
