March 3, 2022

Shipping your products is a large part of running a successful business. We know that business owners have a lot of tasks to juggle, and to help make it easy we have broken down the packing supplies you need for shipping your products into 5 essential things. Take the stress out of shipping your products safely, and help maintain a positive brand reputation with quality packaging materials and shipping products. Read on for the 5 supplies you need to ship your products, and our reasons why they are crucial for your business.

Packing Supplies You Need and Why

No matter if you’re a new business owner looking for some guidance, or an experienced business owner expanding into the world of online shopping and shipping, the products you need are the same. Good shipping doesn’t have to be fancy; the most important thing you can do is purchase quality products that will protect your items as they travel across Australia and around the world. Our top 5 items to make your shipping process easy and effective are as below:

1. Bubble Wrap

Bubble wrap is absolutely key for all businesses who want to ship their items. Not only can it be cut perfectly to shape, bubble wrap can be rolled and scrunched to fill empty spaces around uniquely shaped items. It’s also a lot of fun for your customers – who doesn’t love to pop bubble wrap bubbles!

2. Packaging Tape

You’ll need to keep your boxes from falling open during transit, and quality packaging tape is the best way to do this. Prevent the bottom of your boxes falling open, or the top being torn, with clear premium rubber tape. Flimsy tape could cost you if they result in damaged products and unsatisfied customers. Jetbox’s premium tape is also environmentally friendly and super strong – nothing less than your business needs.

3. Fragile Tape

Are your items fragile and require extra care? Let everyone who handles your product know with fragile tape! From your local postie to the international shippers, fragile tape is an obvious and clear way to indicate your products are fragile and to take extra precautions where possible.

4. Bio-Fill

Bio-fill is a wonderful, biodegradable, 100% natural packing loose fill. Useful for filling your shipping boxes, surrounding items and ensuring fragile items are protected. If you’re looking for a clean and safe solution or an alternative to bubble wrap, bio-fill is an ideal option. Bio-fill can also be used alongside bubble wrap to fill spaces before wrapping the item in bubble wrap or to protect an item already wrapped up.

5. The Right Sized Box

An essential in shipping your products is the perfect sized box. Not only that, but a durable, strong box made to custom fit your item. Using boxes that perfectly fit your items has many benefits, including saving you money on shipping and on packaging fillers, providing the best protection and helping you reduce your packaging product usage therefore benefiting the environment!

How To Pack Your TV Box

We understand that packing TV’s without the original packaging can be a stressful task.

Every Jetbox TV will be supplied with more than enough bubble wrap to wrap any size TV!

To put your TV box together, follow these instructions:

  1. Please start by taping the bottom of the box – pre-fold the flaps to make it easier to close.

  2. Use a blanket to cover your TV before applying bubble wrap.

  3. Lay it down (if the manufacturer recommendations specify that you can) and wrap it in bubble horizontally.

  4. Then wrap again vertically ensuring the corners, front and back are covered well. Tape up the bubble so that it doesn’t come undone.

  5. You can then slide the TV into the box, make sure it fits snugly and close the box with some strong tape.

Bulky Item Delivery Terms & Conditions

Some of our products are large, heavy and bulky and require extra care or special shipping. If your order requires a forklift we will advise before delivery, and if no forklift is available upon delivery a surcharge will apply.

Bulky deliveries that require hand delivery (but no forklift) to the first floor or above and require stair or lift access will also be subject to a delivery surcharge. If you advise at checkout that your delivery is above the ground floor, we will be in touch regarding the surcharge. This surcharge is from $50 per pallet.

Over & Under Runs

Manufacturing processes require machinery to work at quite high speeds. During production, some sheets may be damaged and need to be replaced. In some instances, we cannot replace the sheets at that time and you will be met with a slightly lower Quantity than ordered. This amount will be credited to you.

In most cases though, there will be overruns, as the machinery cannot come to a complete stop in an instant – we require a gradual slow down, which will give us more cartons produced, than what are ordered. These overruns are payable by the client. And taking them also helps save on recycling, which is more sustainable and better for the Environment in the long term.

If you require EXACT Quantities, we may have to make some boxes in a different grade than ordered, to make up your order in the Exact Qty required. These requests will also Incur higher unit costs. This cannot be avoided, as we must consider the recycling processes and costs involved, in helping to reduce our carbon footprint.
