Here are suggested packing tips if you are planning to ship personal effects and household good as loose cargo via Air Cargo or Ocean Freight.

Packing Boxes

  • We suggest that you pack your Household items like clothing, bedding, dishes, computers, home electronics in double-walled boxes or Heavy duty boxes
  • Double walled boxes or Heavy duty boxes  are stronger and are designed to safely store heavy duty items.
  • You can purchase double-walled boxes from your local U-haul Store; Lowes or Home Depot.
  • Each Store has different size of the boxes but U-Haul has size they have different sizes.
  • Books MUST be packed in book boxes unless you have just a few boxes
