Safely ship to Poland with our expert packing guide
It's essential to wrap and pack your belongings well. We recommend hiring a professional packing service when sending luggage abroad. Otherwise, give yourself plenty of time and reference our 4-point tips below. For more in-depth advice, read How to choose a box for shipping and Preparing large items for collection.
Secure your delivery boxes:
Bring together all your packing materials, like parcel tape and a knife. Seal your box's base by folding in the small and large flaps and sealing them shut with multiple layers of overlapping tape.
Cover exposed edges with more parcel tape, then wrap all the way around the bottom. Once full, secure the lid using the same method.
Be careful with delicate effects:
Use bubble wrap on everything and at least two layers for fragile goods. Place heavy items at the bottom of your box and lighter things above and towards the centre.
Fill gaps with soft materials like hand towels and packing paper. Once complete, give your container a gentle shake. If anything makes a sound, add more material till it stops.
Complete your inventory:
Log in to your account and finish your inventory — a list of each item you want to send. Polish customs officials will see it, so accuracy is essential.
Using a marker pen, write the job number, box number, and shipment owner's destination city and country on two sides of each container. Double-check with your inventory to ensure all details are the same.
Plan for collection day:
The max weight limit for each container is 30kg/66lbs to protect you and our driver. Weigh everything individually on bathroom scales. If a delivery container exceeds the limit, remove some effects and place them in a lighter one.
For a happy collection day, move all boxes and bags as close to your building's entrance as possible the evening before.
I used Seven Seas Worldwide to send some boxes to Poland. They were extremely professional from the moment they gave me a quote until the delivery of my consignment. They kept me updated when it was loaded onto the shipping container, and I was able to use their state-of-the-art tracking system to see photos of the ship and its positioning.Kaska
