SAFE PACKING INSTRUCTIONS
By taking care of the proper and safe packaging of your goods to be transported, always based on their specifications, the probability of their damage is minimized.
What you need to know:
- Poor packaging of individual items of your shipment may destroy the other items included therein.
- Your items should be packed in such a way that they can safely stack or have other packages on top.
- Because vibrations and microcracks can be caused during the loading and unloading process due to use of mechanical means (lifting equipment etc.), you should make sure that your items are securely packed.
What to do:
- The size of the packaging should be proportional to its contents, in order to avoid any damage.
- Do not leave empty space inside the packaging. Use special materials that will not allow internal packaging to move the contents of your packaging so it is shock-proof.
- Use special packaging strips to ensure that your goods are properly sealed.
- Fragile items need to be placed in the middle of the package and not touching its sides. Any gaps between the contents and the sides of the package should be filled with special materials (such as foam, bubbles), which will act as protection for the contents.
- The liquids should be in leak-free containers and be properly sealed.
- Liquid goods should be delivered to us in the correct direction in boxes or pallets. We have no responsibility if they are placed upside down from the beginning.
- Small items in size should be wrapped with special materials, such as paper, bubble roll, etc., and / or placed according to their characteristics within packages.
- Items such as cd, usb sticks, floppy disks, cassettes, and video cassettes are only protected if you have a soft protective material around them.
- Write down the address of the recipient in capital letters, clearly legible, making sure all the necessary contact and delivery details are provided.
- Goods intended for gifts should also be equally well-packaged - according to their specifications - as detailed above.
What to avoid:
- Labels such as "Fragile" and "Caution" do not in any case substitute for safe and appropriate packaging, rather than for information purposes only.
- Do not use cloth or sack bags that are prone to cracking and wear.
- Do not use the same box for a second shipment, as it may have lost some of its rigidity. However, if you use it, make sure the box is not worn, as well as remove all previous labels and stickers
All the above instructions are advisory. The choice of packaging type, as well as the packaging of the goods to be transported, remains the sole responsibility of the consignor and the carrier bears no responsibility for it.
