How to Pack Unusual Size Products

Packing odd-shaped stuff, be it a decorating piece or some vehicle part, for shipping is a big challenge. We have compiled the best ways to pack your irregular shaped oversized item, here you go.

Wrap Your Item

First step to seal your odd-shaped item is that you wrap it in a bubble wrap or packing paper. This will ensure that during shipping, it’s saved from being damaged or scratched. You can use kraft paper roll for packing purpose. 

In case you are not planning to use a box to pack, then you must use ample packing material while wrapping and use tape to secure it. In this case, you will have to use shipping label inside as well as outside. You must mention your contact number so that in case of any issue, they can get in touch with you.

Box Your Item

If you put your wrapped item inside a box, it will add protection. You need to look for a perfect cardboard box for this purpose. Various cardboard removable boxes are available online at Packaging Express. You can order a box online easily. 

Once you have the box, use foam rolls and edge guards to pad the bottom of the shipping box. After this, place your wrapped item inside the box.  Fill the box using bubble wrap and foam, especially all around your item. 

Put in a layer of packing material on top before sealing. If your oversized item does not fit in the regular sized box, fix two boxes together using tape to create one big box. In case your item is heavy, use double walled cardboard boxes.

Insure Your Item

It’s always better to insure your item. Take pictures of your item before wrapping to document its condition. Record your packing process to prove you effectively protected the item. To decide on which delivery company to use, do your homework to find out who has the best track record of handling odd-shaped packages.
