We’ve all been on the receiving end of a crushed box through the mail at one point, and it’s not nice! If you’re shipping something that is especially fragile or you’re worried that it may get damaged in the post, you may want to consider a more heavy-duty packaging solution.
Shipping jewellery and valuables can make you feel uneasy with the possibility of it being lost in the post. There are ways to combat this with recorded delivery options, but you may want to invest in some high-quality packaging. Of course, cost often comes to mind and the larger/ heavier the box, the more it will cost to ship the item.
We’re often asked ‘what is the best box to send jewellery in?’ and the answer is a subscription postal box. We offer them in several sizes and have been manufactured to conform with Royal Mail parcel guidelines to ensure that postage is not costing more than it needs to and that quality isn’t sacrificed.
We would strongly recommend against this. Fragile items should be stored in double wall boxes as they have higher shock absorbency and will protect the glass from breakage.
Collecting model trains is a great hobby, but it can take up a lot of space. We’re seeing increasing numbers of hobbyists looking for storage solutions for their prized possessions with the peace of mind that they’re not going to get damaged.
A sturdy and stackable box is needed for safe storage of model trains, and we often recommend the following boxes:
Single Wall Lidded Box (10 x 7 x3”)
Single Wall Cardboard Box (12 x 9 x 4”)
Single Wall Cardboard Box (12 x 9 x 6)
These corrugated boxes are perfect for stacking, and long-term storage providing great protection in a range of sizes.
Also, do not use bubble wrap or newspaper. The bubble wrap leaves circular marks on the model and can pull off older decals if wrapped too tight, whilst newspaper may leave dark smudge marks. It’s recommended that you use tissue paper.
We do not currently sell boxes with partition sections for glassware. This is something we’re looking to stock in the near future.
