Using the Australian postal service is usually straightforward. However, if you’re sending goods by mail, especially items that are easily damaged, you need to be careful how you send them.
Although the postal service will do its best to take care of your items, mail can be knocked or dropped during its journey. The service also uses mechanised equipment to sort the mail and this itself can cause damage to poorly packaged items. It’s not simply enough to mark packages as ‘fragile’; you need to take steps to ensure no damage occurs
Protect Your Reputation with Australia Post Delivery Boxes
It’s bad enough having items damaged in the post if you’re an individual but, as a business sending products out to customers, frequent damage can be a serious concern. Not only does the cost of processing returns and replacing goods hit your profits but breakages can influence your customers’ view of your business and damage your brand image.
Ordering products by post can be a big deal for people and they look forward to receiving what they’ve bought. So you don’t want to let them down by delivering something that’s damaged. Customer disappointment can be long lasting and result in the loss of future orders.
Many goods are supplied in presentation boxes that customers often want to keep to store the item they’ve bought. So even if the product isn’t damaged in transit, a scuffed or creased box will harm the overall impression and not be good for your company’s reputation.
If you have an e-commerce operation or send products through the post for other reasons, it’s important that you pay due attention to the packaging of those products. For Australia post, choose shipping boxes that are a perfect fit for your products — we have a big enough range to ensure you will.
Safe and Secure Packing with Australia Post Boxes
If you use Australia post, select mailing boxes that will do the job. They come in all shapes and sizes, as one piece boxes with an integral lid or as two pieces where the lid is separate. Supplied flat for easy transport and storage, they’re quick to assemble with an interlocking design that requires no gluing or taping.
All our boxes conform to Australian post standards and are made from rigid corrugated card in a variety of finishes. They’re available in multiple sizes and colours so you can find exactly the right one to meet your needs.
Choosing the right packaging requires an assessment of the products you intend to send — their size, weight and vulnerability to damage. You can choose a suitable box that will accommodate the product without too much excess space, pack around the product if necessary to prevent movement and provide additional protection while in transit, then secure the package with tape and label it. We provide various packaging products to help you complete the process.
For businesses, we provide a wide range of products with quantity discounts for large order quantities while for individuals there are small order quantities at competitive rates. To complete the range, we also offer postage and gift boxes as well as an Australia post wine box selection. So there’s everything you need to send items safely and securely.
