Safely ship boxes, bags and luggage to Qatar with our expert packing guide
It's essential to wrap and pack your belongings properly when sending luggage abroad. Hiring a professional packing service would ease some stress. Otherwise, set aside a reasonable amount of time and follow our 4 top tips below. For further expert advice, read How to choose a box for shipping and Preparing large items for collection.
Seal your boxes:
Bring together all your packing materials, like parcel tape and a knife. Seal your box's base by folding in the small flaps, then the large flaps and sealing them with several layers of overlapping parcel tape.
Cover exposed edges with more tape, and then wrap all the way around the bottom for extra security. Once your box is full, secure the lid in the same manner.
Be careful with fragile goods:
Use bubble wrap on everything and three layers for delicate items. Place your heaviest goods along the bottom of your box and lighter things above and in from the sides.
Fill gaps with cushioning materials like paper towels or packing paper. Once full, give the box a little shake. If you hear something move, add more cushioning materials until it stops.
Fill in your inventory:
Log in to your account and complete your inventory, an itemised list of everything you're shipping to Qatar. Customs officials will have access to it, so accuracy is a must.
With a marker pen, write the job number, box number, and shipment owner's destination city and country on two sides of every container. Cross-reference your inventory as you write to ensure the details match.
Prepare for collection day:
Weigh everything on bathroom scales to ensure they are within our max 30kg/66lbs limit to protect you and our driver. If a container exceeds the limit, remove some items and place them in a lighter box or bag.
For a stress-free collection day, move all your luggage as close to your building's exit as possible the evening before.

If you want to move your stuff hassle-free and be in safe hands, then look no further. Thank you!Jem
