Some tips on preparation:

  1. Packing list for customs pusposes

  1. Utilise dead space – Avoid packing and leaving too much space – this increases volume and leads to higher chargeable weight.
  2. Make use of plastic crates, ideal for protection and light in weight.
  3. Avoid flimsy old carton boxes.
  4. Number boxes to correspond with packing list.
  5. Remove batteries from toys and other items.
