Packaging mobile phones for posting - 5 simple steps!
As you’d expect, packaging your mobile phone securely will be instrumental to having it arrive safely and intact. You may want to consider weather conditions, sending a mobile phone in the post may even require waterproof packaging.
We have plenty of packaging advice for the UK and International delivery for all kinds of parcels; including fragile items – with mobile phone specific guidance below:
Preferably, use the original box the mobile handset came in when new and pack your mobile phone as it was when you received it. If you don’t have the box anymore, wrap up the phone with at least 2cm of bubble wrap and find a box like the original. Use plenty of tape along all the box's seams and any flaps.
You’ll need a second, slightly larger box to place your phone into before you send it. Pack the bottom of the larger box with a couple of inches of bubble wrap or packaging chips to make a ‘bed’ for your phone box to sit on.
Fill any remaining space around the inner box with packaging chips or other suitable filling and make sure it cannot touch the walls of the outer box. Don’t be shy - give it a shake to test it – nothing inside should be able to move
If it’s not already inside the original phone box packaging, wrap the phone charger (and any other accessories) separately in bubble wrap, secure it with tape and put it in with the phone box.
Secure the outer box with plenty of tape; run a several layers of packaging tape down the main folds and edges of the box , then again in a cross pattern.
