Packing

WBS is a freight forwarding company. As opposed to a Moving or Packing Company, WBS cannot pack for you. Only properly packed items can be accepted: Packing is the responsibility of the sender!
In case of damage claims, the carrier or the Insurance Company will judge if the goods were sufficiently protected. Pilferage will not be compensated, unless the packing is clearly damaged. Therefore it is of outmost importance to protect your items for the long journey.

1. General packing requirements

  • Goods must be packed in such a way that the contents are protected during the journey. Strong cartons and good suitcases will give sufficient protection.
  • The packing must be clearly marked with the consignee's name and address. If there is no name attached, there is no owner!
  • The pieces must be stackable, use no weak and/or half filled cartons!
  • The packing should not cause damage to other goods. So, no (sharp) parts sticking out; if possible remove straps from bags.

2. Obtaining cartons
In our warehouse Vrachtcentrum Particulieren we have a limited stock of carton boxes.
Tip: it may be not cost effective to order from WBS as transportation is charged; it will be cheaper to buy cartons near you.
Most types of removal boxes are suitable. Addresses for cartons you can find at Victor Verhuis and http://www.verhuisdozen.info/; on these websites you can also order cartons. Or look on verpakking.pagina.nl for more addresses. Likely there is a Moving Company near you, they have cartons and other packing material.
WBS keeps a stock of palletboxes and three types of woodenboxes, which can be delivered to your home address if requested. It is also possible to obtain a tailor-made woodenbox, e.g. in case of furniture. Read more »

3. Wooden boxes
In case you intend to construct your own wooden box, please adhere to the International requirements for wood packaging, according to the ISPM 15 regulations and ISPM countries
Also, the boxes must be easy loadable and suited for handling with a forklift truck or pallet lifter.
