Packing tips

Easy and secure shipping thanks to our packing tips.

Quick tips for secure packaging

  1. Make sure the product is completely packed

  2. Use sufficient packaging inside to make sure the parcel is shock-resistant

  3. The parcel must be able to withstand a diagonal drop test from a height of 80 cm

  4. Cover the outer packaging with tape that cannot be removed without being noticed. By doing so, you prevent the contents from being lost or stolen.

  5. Goods that do not satisfy the packaging conditions cannot be transported
