Measure your Parcels Correctly
When couriering your packages, you’ll frequently need to figure out your freight costs based on cubic weight, which is determined using the formula below.
Cubic Weight = (length x width x height)/5000
*please note that measurements are all in centimeters
You can encounter greater handling costs the bigger the cubic weight. However, we can help you decide which crates or shipping boxes are best for your couriers! Ask us for a free, no-obligation estimate to send your packages from Australia overseas for the best price!

Maintaining your Packages and Contents
It’s critical to carefully pack your contents while shipping them in order to prevent damage. You may make sure that the goods are adequately protected by using packing materials like bubble wrap, transparent wrap, packing peanuts, packing paper, and more. When delivering heavier things, we urge our clients to use smaller shipping boxes, and when sending lighter items, larger boxes. This aids in keeping the shipping box’s structure intact throughout shipping and transportation.
