Unfortunately a huge problem that exists is breakages of packages and goods during transit. It is unfortunately an issue that is out of our control, even some items that we dispatch end up damaged during transit. However, there are things that you can do to try and prevent or reduce the possibility of it happening. There are various protective packaging materials and solutions on our website that can offer more protection to your goods – especially if they are more fragile. Air packaging, bubble wrap, bubble lined envelopes and double wall cardboard boxes are just some of the packaging goods that will help protect your items even more. If you are in doubt of what packaging is best to use or if you need any assistance with selecting the best packaging supplies for your business’s needs, please contact us on 01543 572 776 or email in to info@parcelsend.uk and our team will be happy to assist.

A postal tube, also known as a mailing tube, is a cylinder-shaped cardboard container that can be used to securely package up a range of items, especially items that are ideal for rolling. This includes packaging goods such as documents, blueprints, posters and artwork. Longer sized postal tubes can be used to package up items such as fishing rods, telescopes or golf clubs.

Air cushion packaging, or just air packaging, is a form of packaging which requires a pillow or multiple pillows to be inflated. Once inflated, the packaging will mould perfectly around the item(s) and offer strong protection during transit.

Here at Parcelsend UK we can supply UK businesses with a range of book packaging supplies. Our range is specifically designed to protect items such as books & magazines during transit. Our range currently consists of capacity book mailers, book wrap mailers, magazine wrap mailers and twist wrap mailers.

Mailing bags, also known as courier bags, are a cost-effective alternative to using cardboard boxes to package your goods. Designed for protecting packaged items during transit, mailing bags are light, waterproof, and usually 100% opaque. Available in different colours from Parcelsend UK, all our mailing bags are made from high quality materials, are recyclable and they adhere to Royal Mail's PiP guidelines for more accurate postage cost calculations. Mailing bags can be used to despatch and protect items such as clothing, office supplies, books, jewellery and more.

Eco-friendly packaging is recyclable, environmentally friendly and in a lot of cases the packaging is manufactured from recycled materials. Here at Parcelsend UK we can supply businesses with a wide range of eco-friendly packaging which includes air cushion packaging, cardboard boxes, mailing bags and paper carrier bags.
