Custom Packaging

Large or odd-shaped items often require specialized packaging. The UPS Store locations offer custom handling and packing, from blanket wrap to custom cartons, crating, shrink-wrapping and palletizing. Your neighbourhood location can advise you on the best packaging method needed for your item(s).

Packing & Moving Tips:

  • DO include a label on the inside of the package with both the destination address and your package return address.
  • DO take batteries out of toys, electronics, etc., before shipping.
  • DO check with The UPS Store experts before shipping fragile items.
  • DO ship wrapped presents ahead to your destination, especially if traveling by air.
  • DON’T wrap boxes in brown paper or tie with string.
  • DON’T use materials like newspaper or real popcorn to package items.
  • DON’T use old boxes or gift boxes for shipping gifts.
  • DON’T use duct tape, masking tape, or cellophane tape to seal your boxes for shipping.
