Meest Packaging Hacks: How to Pack a Parcel for Smooth and Hassle-Free Delivery

Meest has sent parcels from Canada and the USA to over 60 countries worldwide for 34 years. The company is constantly expanding the range of its services, doing everything for maximum customer comfort. For example, drop-off services and parcel pick-up from home are top-rated but require knowledge of how to pack a parcel to meet the carrier's requirements.

How to Pack a Parcel for Delivery?

Meest Canada, like other companies delivering goods around the world, has standard requirements for product packaging. Each item shipped must be packaged in a box, envelope, jiffy, or special courier packaging, depending on size. Unpacked items will not be accepted.

How to Wrap a Parcel Properly for Delivery from Canada?

Please pack the items you want to ship in a cardboard box and seal it with wide tape. To prevent things from moving inside the package, fill the space in the box with crumpled paper, bubble wrap, or other filler. If the package is not properly packaged, the courier may refuse to accept it.

Some Helpful Tips: How to Pack a Parcel to Send Abroad?

  • Choose a packaging box based on the parcel size and shape. In a large box, the parcel's contents may be damaged as they will move freely in it.
  • The ideal package for transportation is rectangular for better storage inside a sea shipping container or in an airplane. It is essential that the packaging is durable and has enough surface to place the recipient and sender’s data on both sides per Meest Canada shipping requirements.
  • Fragile goods must be reported to the carrier to be appropriately packaged. Such labels as Fragile or Handle with Care are widely used and recognized worldwide, so make sure your packaging is marked accordingly.

What Are the Maximum Permissible Parcel Dimensions and Weight to Ship Internationally?

The minimum parcel weight for international delivery is 5 kg (11 lb), with a maximum size of 30 kg (66 lb). After entering basic information about the parcel in the online calculator on the page or in the Meest Portal, you can see all available shipping methods with details about size and weight restrictions to choose one.

The payment for the parcel is affected by the weight in the same amount as the volume. If the box takes up a lot of space in transport, its cost will be calculated according to the formula for determining the volumetric weight: L (cm) * W (CM) * H (CM) / 5000. The requirements for how to wrap a large box are the same as for the standard packages.

Why Would I Choose Meest for International Shipping?

Even perfectly packaged items can be easily damaged if the shipping company with poor logistics does not properly care for them. Meest specialists work hard to meet your expectations for fast and cheap delivery of goods from Toronto, Hamilton, Ottawa, Calgary, Vancouver, Montreal, and other Canadian provinces. Just keep the international shipping packaging rules, please.
