Packing Gifts Yourself

JustShip believes in offering you choices. While our professional packing services stand ready for those who prefer a hassle-free experience, we also support the creative gifters who love to pack gifts themselves.

Here are our top expert tips, drawn from our years in international shipping:

Choose a Fitting Box - Save on Shipping!

Remember, shipping costs depend on the higher of actual or volumetric weight ((length x width x height)/5000). A snug-fitting box doesn't just save space; it saves money! Optimize your parcel size to minimize charges.

Double-Wall Boxes - The Gold Standard

International shipping can be rough. That's why we highly recommend double-wall boxes. They offer the protection that single-wall boxes can't. It's your choice, but why take a risk?

Customize with Creativity - Cut a Larger Box Down

Can't find the perfect size? Get crafty by cutting down a larger box. Trim the corners, fold in the flaps, and create a custom fit. It's smart packing with a personal touch.

Eliminate Empty Spaces - Secure Your Gifts

A well-packed box should make no sound when shaken. Fill all spaces with bubble wrap, newspaper, or foam to prevent movement. Secure packing isn’t just protection; it's a sign of thoughtful gifting.

Fragile Items? Bubble Wrap to the Rescue

When it comes to fragile treasures, bubble wrap is your best friend. The more delicate the item, the more layers you need. Trust us, it’s worth the effort for that precious smile at the destination.
