Packing Materials Required
New Postal Box
Battery Shipping Label
Step 1: Re-pack your mobile phone in the original box. If you don’t have this, wrap the phone in 2cm of bubble wrap and find a similar shaped box. You will need a second, slightly larger box to place your phone into.
Step 2: Layer the bottom of your larger box in 2 inches of bubble wrap or packaging chips to create a bed for your phone box to rest on.
Step 3: Fill in any remaining space around the phone box with packaging chips and ensure it cannot touch the inner walls of the outer box. Give it a shake, it should not be able to move.
Step 4: Secure the box with plenty of packaging tape. Run three layers of tape down the main flaps of the box and then again in a cross pattern.
Step 5: Print off and attach the battery shipping label we provide via email.
