The Best Wine Packaging For Shipping

February 26, 2021

No matter if you’re partial to a red wine with dinner or a white wine with dessert, nearly everybody enjoys a glass of wine! To ensure that your customers are able to enjoy their wine, it is important to package it safely and securely. At Jetbox, we know that shipping glass can be difficult, and have compiled a few ways to help you transport your wine safely.

Choosing Your Wine Packaging for Shipping

Online shopping has become extremely popular, especially over the last year or so. It is therefore common for customers to purchase their wine online to be delivered. This creates a need for a safe and secure way to package and send your wine across Australia, and around the world. When you consider how many businesses already successfully transport wine worldwide, it begs the question how do you send fragile wine bottles such long distances without smashing?

Commonly, suppliers and manufacturers will use a combination of specialist boxes and divider inserts.

Specialist cardboard boxes are designed to be strong, without being too heavy. Wine itself can be quite weighty, and it is therefore necessary to choose a box that is going to withstand this weight for longer periods of time. It is also important to not have too much excess room in the box for the wine to move around. Customers also have to carry the box into their homes, and a lighter box will help to make this process easier.

A quality divider insert will help to prevent the wine bottles from hitting against each other, and keep them in place. Divider inserts come in a number of different sizes, and can be used to transport all kinds of bottles. Using divider inserts also helps to prevent leaking and spilling.

By using a combination of specially made wine boxes and dividers, you can ensure that your customers will receive their wine safe and sound. Purchasing quality boxes and dividers, like those at Jetbox, makes all the difference in the safety of your wine.

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.
