- When your shipment is packed, it is essential to measure it properly and insert the dimensions in the Shipment Size Checker. In case you have oversized or heavy parcels, it is better to ask for an individual offer. The same goes when you send soccer training kits abroad in multiple packages.
- Take your time when you ship soccer equipment or send football boots via courier.

Packaging materials you need to wrap football equipment properly
If you have ever visited a post office drop off point, you have noticed that all shipments are wrapped in cardboard boxes or other packaging materials there. This is necessarily done to protect each shipment during transportation. Before your shipment is heading off to another city or country, you need to pack it properly with the help of the following packaging materials.
- Cardboard box – there are different boxes of various sizes, but you need to choose the one that particularly suits the dimensions of your shipment. If you have an old cardboard box at home, it is fine if you take it. Anyway, you need to double-check if it is sturdy enough and whether there are no dents or scratches there.
- Football equipment bag – if you plan to send your personal football equipment with courier services, it is advisable to take an original bag or a specialized one you usually use to carry your stuff to the training session.
- Cardboard scrap – the pieces of cardboard scrap might be essential when you want to separate fragile or solid items from each other. For instance, larger pieces of cardboard scrap would be needed when transporting training hurdles sets, agility rings, or agility ladder.
- Cushioning materials – they are necessary to alleviate the tension of football equipment items when they are put together in the same cardboard box or bag
- Adhesive tape – it is necessary to tighten packaging materials and secure the items.
Pack the items of football gear and soccer equipment securely
Whether you are planning to send personal training gear or need to ship soccer equipment internationally, you have to pack each item securely before transportation. As there is a variety of items of football and soccer equipment, we will provide a set of general guidelines here first and the more specific ones below.
- Before you send soccer training kits abroad, make sure that all the elements are at their places. Hopefully, you are not eager to discover that a t-shirt or a sock is missing when a parcel arrives at the place of destination.
- Secure any loose parts. Detachable parts should be either removed or secured before you ship soccer equipment internationally.
- Prepare the items for transportation. Cover the items with cushioning materials, either bubble wrap or crumpled paper, and secure them with small pieces of adhesive tape.
- Put the items into a cardboard box. You need to put plenty of cushioning materials on the bottom of the box first and put wrapped items of football equipment later. Do not overwhelm your package as a box could get damaged in case oversized or heavy items are nested in it.
- Close the box. Fill the voids and empty spaces in the box to prevent the items from shifting around it. Afterwards, close the box and secure all edges with adhesive tape.
Send inflatable soccer field overseas
Sometimes, it is essential to set the boundaries of a soccer field (especially for mini soccer games). In this case, an inflatable soccer field is exactly what you need. Before you send inflatable soccer field overseas or domestically, you have to prepare it for transportation.
- Deflate a soccer field. For that purpose, you will have to take a specific deflating device that can manage the task in half an hour. Otherwise, you will have to wait for ages before an inflatable soccer field is deflated due to its enormous size.
- Check if there are any odd parts. Double-check the surface of the inflatable soccer field before you fold it. Detecting and removing redundant or odd items prevents from any damages during transportation.
- Fold an inflatable soccer field. If you have detailed instructions on how to fold the field, do not hesitate to adhere to those guidelines. In other cases, try your best to fold an inflatable soccer field so it occupies as little space as possible.
- Cover an inflatable soccer field. If you have an original bag or case for the inflatable field, take it for the protection. Otherwise, take plenty of bubble wrap to fully cover the item.
