How to package sports equipment for shipping

Depending on the type of sports equipment you are shipping, it is important to prepare it correctly to ensure it gets delivered safely to its destination in one piece.

  1. Break larger pieces down into smaller pieces if possible and pack each piece separately
  2. Wrap with bubble-wrap or foam to prevent scratches and damage during transport
  3. Choose an appropriately sized box to fit your sports equipment with the least empty space
  4. Fill any empty space with additional cushioning to prevent movement during transport
  5. Label the box and seal with tape

If you are sending sports equipment in bulk, or need to ship gym equipment, we recommend to use pallets for easy transport

  • Select a pallet ensuring it can handle the weight of your sports equipment and is in good condition
  • Place cardboard on the base of the pallet to protect your sporting equipment
  • Place sports equipment or boxes onto pallet, making sure it does not exceed the dimensions
  • Secure with stretch-film, fixing your sporting goods to the bottom of the pallet
  • Secure with bands or cables and label if needed
