Packaging materials to arrange transportation of a wheelchair by courier
When planning to ship a wheelchair at a chosen destination by transporter, please prepare all necessary materials to protect your parcel to the maximum. You will need the following materials:
- Cardboard boxes – sturdy enough to support the weight of the wheelchair you ship. You can take used boxes, but make sure they are in good condition (no holes, etc.).
- A pallet (if applicable) – if, for example, you ship a wheelchair with dimensions that exceed the limits of standard shipping (it may be the case, for instance, with electric wheelchairs or with manual wheelchairs having rigid frame).
- Straps (if applicable) – to tie the wheelchair to the pallet, if you use a pallet shipment.
- Bubble wrap – it serves as a reliable packing and cushioning material to protect the items you send.
- Cushioning materials – you can take moving blankets, foam wrap, bubble wrap, packing peanuts, or corrugated cardboard to provide additional protection.
- Adhesive tape – to secure packing materials and seal the box (if applicable).
How to pack a wheelchair in case of a standard shipping?
If you plan to send a wheelchair that meets the requirements of a standard shipping (this will probably be the case for manual folding wheelchairs, for example), here are the packing instructions for you to consider.
- Prepare the wheelchair. If the wheelchair is foldable, fold it down so it can take up as little space as possible in the cardboard box. However, if the wheelchair has a rigid frame but still fits into standard shipping, disassemble it (if possible) into individual parts (detaching the wheels, for example, etc.) to make it easier to pack and transport it.
- Bubble-wrap the wheelchair. If it’s for a folded wheelchair, bubble-wrap it entirely to ensure the first layer of protection for it during the transportation. If it’s for a rigid wheelchair, bubble-wrap separately each part of it that you managed to detach (the wheels, for example). After this, bubble-wrap entirely the remaining frame of the wheelchair. In each case, fix the bubble-wrap with sufficient amount of adhesive tape.
- Prepare a cardboard box. Cover the bottom of the box with cushioning material; you can use packing peanuts or enough of foam wrap, for example.
- Put bubble-wrapped wheelchair (and its parts) into the box. Fill the remaining empty space in the box with additional cushioning materials in order to ensure a maximum protection of your items during their transportation.
- Seal and secure your package. Seal the box and secure each side of the it with enough of adhesive tape.
