Many specific precautions should be taken when packaging electronics for your business in the UK. Such products have many items and sub-items with their components. Each year, the online e-commerce industry grows, and electronics are purchased more widely online than the year before.

The electronic items you’re shipping will need specific labels to indicate what risks they carry. For example, a label may state that an item is fragile, should be kept away from moisture, etc.

Since these are items of high value, they’ll undoubtedly be vulnerable to static damage. Ensuring your items are packaged accurately is the best way to ensure they arrive undamaged and have all their necessary parts and components. It’s better to wrap the item for transport in bubble wrap than other materials because two layers of bubble wrap can add cushioning for heavy items.

If the item is prone to getting scratches, putting a layer of foam around its entirety or only its scratch-prone region will help protect that surface during its storage and delivery. Another popular option for electronics is the bubble blanket.

For electronics specifically, it’s vital to consider loose filling when packaging them. Void or loose-fill is for items that don’t fit boxes without bouncing or moving inside. To make them move less, biodegradable and eco-friendly fillings are used to help the thing stay safe during transit until it reaches the end receiver or consumer.

The box used must be only slightly larger than the item being transported because this step will help minimize movement within the box and require less void fill. Often, to transport particularly fragile electronics, the best bet is to utilize double boxing. This technique entails using a slightly more significant box than the first box used, and the bottom of the second box is filled with a small but even amount of void fill.

At N & A Logistics, we offer packaging and shipping for your valuable and fragile electronics. Not only do we have a firm understanding of the requirements from the government for packaging specific electronic items for every industry and niche, but we also make sure your items are packaged for maximum protection during their voyage.
