Post Books in 5 Steps with Worldwide Parcel Services


First, you will need suitable packaging. If you are only sending one book, a padded envelope may suffice. If you are sending multiple books, you will need a sturdy cardboard box.


Wrap your book(s) in bubble wrap, and seal with tape. Pay close attention to the corners to keep them safe. Not only will the bubble wrap protect the books from knocks, but it will also protect your books from water if the box or envelope gets wet.


Put the bubble wrapped book(s) in the envelope or box, and fill any remaining space with loose packaging, such as packing peanuts.


Seal the box or envelope with tape. If you are recycling a used box, make sure that you remove any old labels from the outside.
