However, since Banner Logistics cater for all types and sizes of logistics, you’d be surprised to know the type of items we’ve shipped to date.

In this digital era, there are countless courier companies operating in United Kingdom. But as with any service, you really need to choose a trusted, established and reputable courier company.
Basic example we can share with you is "courier’s drivers experience". When it comes to shipping fragile items, even packing the boxes and the order in which items are packed in to the courier van makes a big difference in successful deliveries. There are many turns and bumps along a typical package’s journey through busy UK roads. Furthermore: hiring a reputable courier company also means cheaper rates for you because of their efficient operations.
Ideally, your aim is to ensure no empty space is left within the package. Bubble wrapper works great for most gift items such as mobile phones, smart watches, necklace and earrings, you can even insert fragile items inside a sock and then wrap it. If there are any sticky points (handles, sharp edges etc.) wrap them carefully and separately to reduce the chances of accidental damage.
When you are packing small fragile gifts and items that has glass (mobile phone or a watch), consider using tape as well to secure the item tightly after you’ve wrapped it using bubble wrap for packaging.
Whenever possible, use the original box when packing small items such as a watch, game console, or the latest iPad or iPhone. Gently open the original box and secure the item within it using soft padding. What if the original box is not available? Then, consider using another cardboard box.
It is not wise to rely on wrapping fragile gifts in their original box alone. Being careful wrapping the item with bubble wrap tightly is surely a must, but what if you can have double the protection and avoid potential damage.
Especially when you are sending highly valuable items, here’s a tip by Banner Logistics couriers, use 2 boxes one being slightly bigger than the original box. Basically, you wrap the item in original box securely. Then, place it inside another (slightly bigger sized) box and place soft cushioning around it to secure the original box in place tightly.
Think of it this as double the protection for fragile items, because wrapping fragile items using method adds an additional layer of cushioning to protect your item even further for transporting.
