    Select the package according to the size of the object. Make sure that the package is shock-proof and definitely undamaged. In addition, the item must withstand 4–5 times its own weight.

    Pack your item in a parcel that is as neat and flat as possible. Select a box of a suitable size for your item to prevent the contents from moving in the package. If necessary, use bubble wrap, styrofoam or foam plastic, for instance, to fill the box. Any packaging material causing sticking, and items of an irregular shape or round items may cause issues in mechanical handling. Cardboard and paper are the best materials for the outermost layer of a parcel or letter.

    When you send your parcel through Posti you can use any packaging materials. You can also use pre-used materials as long as they are intact, endurable for transport and there is no old address information on top of the parcel. Posti also offers a wide assortment of different packaging materials you can order from Posti’s online shop or buy from the nearest Posti's service point.
