Purchase Packing Materials
This is very important and great attention should be made in adequately packing your effects in the most suitable manner.
This is very important and great attention should be made in
adequately packing your effects in the most suitable manner.
Remember they may have a very long journey ahead. The single
biggest mistake which we encounter is students packing too many
items (particularly heavy books) into one box. We highly recommend
that a carton should weigh a maximum of 30 kilos. It is safer and
no more expensive to use two smaller cartons than one large carton
when they are full of books.
Overweight cartons tend to be dropped and they may split open.
Electrical items such as computers, hi-fi equipment etc. are
usually safer when packed in their original boxes if you still have
them. If not we do have a large stock of packing materials for
protection such as bubble wrap and polystyrene chips etc. Providing
common sense is used your goods should travel and arrive
To further protect any electrical items in their original boxes
we suggest that you disguise the boxes by wrapping them in black
plastic bags or similar opaque sheets. As long as they are then
clearly marked fragile and the destination name and address clearly
visible, the carton should be safe. There is no need for the
various people who handle your packages en route to know the
contents. To know that they are fragile should suffice. Tudor can
disguise these boxes at a cost of £2 per box, similarly, suitcases
and bags should be locked securely to protect the contents.
Palletising - What is it?
This is an extra service offered to customers with larger
shipments or if they are sharing with fellow students and usually
when shipping by sea rather than by air. Our cartons are designed
so as to fit exactly on to a wooden pallet base in rows of 4 up to
a maximum of 12 cartons per pallet. It also allows you to pack
Tudor Module boxes of different sizes together and thus build up
the pallet into a perfect cube.

Loading pallets onto truck
The main advantage of this optional service is to keep larger
shipments of multiple cartons together and makes handling safer and
easier. This service also includes wrapping and waterproofing with
a black plastic wrap which completely conceals the cartons from
view and then securely strapped to the wooden pallet base. The cost
for this service is £20 per pallet.
