Preparation and Collection

Pak Mail offers custom packing and crating solutions for all items you may need to ship. We design custom packing methods for each item and use the appropriate packaging materials to ensure even the most fragile, valuable and sensitive items are well-protected for shipping.

Customized Crating Construction

Our team also crafts shipping crates to ensure those oversized, heavy, or awkwardly shaped items are safely transported. The items are securely fitted as the crates are built to their exact dimensions and specifications. Our crating experts also utilize extra packing materials inside the crates to provide added protection for safe and secure delivery.

For the design, we make considerations such as:

  • Interior clearance: The crate should have enough space around the item to accommodate necessary packing materials for optimal cushioning and support.
  • Access: The design may incorporate features like detachable panels or doors. This enables easier loading and unloading of the item.
  • Strength: The crate needs to be strong enough to withstand the weight of the item.

Securing and Labeling

Once packed, we will securely fasten the item within the crate to prevent shifting during transport. Our team will also apply clear and detailed labels. This includes:

  • Name
  • Contact information
  • Destination address
  • Special handling instructions

Shipping and Delivery

Based on the item's size, weight, and destination, we will give you various shipping options. Once shipped, you will be able to track your items, so you can follow it on its way to its destination.
