Please note:

  1. If you are using old boxes, make sure that they are robust. Your parcel is going with other goods as well which might be kept on the top of your parcel. So, make sure that your old box has good strength.
  2. Make sure that there is no extra space in the box. If there is extra space, choose a small size box and save your shipping costs. If you don’t want to change the box, fill it with crumpled paper so that your goods/gifts are compactly packed.
