Meest Experts Recommend: What Is the Best Shipping Box for a Laptop to Ship from Canada

For over 35 years, Meest Canada has been reliably transporting valuable cargo globally, providing diverse options for collecting shipments and ensuring swift delivery to recipients. Completing customs documents and appropriately packing your equipment is crucial if you create a shipment independently on the website. Let's delve into selecting the optimal shipping box for a laptop to ensure its safety during transit.

How to Ship Electronics between Countries

You can send any items from Toronto, Hamilton, Ottawa, Calgary, Vancouver, Montreal, and everywhere in Canada that are not included in the prohibited goods list. Electronics, that is, laptops, computers, phones, and anything that contains a lithium-ion battery can be quickly shipped abroad. Remember to indicate the battery type in the declaration since shipping equipment with AA batteries is prohibited.

If your parcels contain fragile items, it's advisable to inform our agents, who will assist in securely packaging them for safe transit.

How Much Does It Cost to Ship Electronics from Canada?

The delivery of electronics follows the guidelines for international shipments, considering each item’s specific parameters. To simplify budget planning, you can utilize the online calculator on our website. Simply input the parcel's details to obtain the necessary pricing information.

It's important to note that for delivery to Ukraine via sea or air, the minimum parcel weight accepted is 5 kg (11 lbs), while the maximum weight is 30 kg (66 lbs).

How Do I Pack My Laptop for Shipping?

When creating a parcel from Canada, it is essential to properly pack your cargo so that it is not damaged during transportation. The most important rule when packing fragile goods is that you don't fill it well if you shake the box and hear something moving inside. So, let's start by choosing a laptop computer shipping box.

Electronics are a very fragile cargo that requires careful handling. When packaging the product, you need to make every effort to ensure the safety of your electronics when packaging it for shipping. Here's a brief guide to help you pack them securely:

  • Start by taking apart as many components of the device as possible, then seal them in a Ziploc bag.
  • Cover the main body with multiple layers of bubble wrap, securing it with tape.
  • A sturdy double-walled laptop computer shipping box slightly larger than your device, leaving room for protective padding, would be perfect for laptop and tablet shipping.
  • Arrange the laptop and its components within the box, ensuring they're well-separated to prevent sticking or damage during transit. 
  • Seal the box securely using sturdy tape, and your package will be ready for delivery.
  • For safe monitor shipping, label the box as "Fragile" and indicate "This Side Up" for added precaution.
