(31.5 kgs), it is important to evaluate your packaging materials to ensure that they are adequate for heavier package contents. Use these guidelines to pack your heavy package safely and securely: Boxes must be strongly constructed, preferably with seams that are stitched or stapled, not merely glued. Weight limits printed on the Box Maker's Certificate (found on the bottom flaps of most boxes) are intended for palletized freight shipments, not for shipments through small parcel carrier environments. Following the UPS Box Strength Guidelines will help ensure your package is of adequate strength to provide sufficient protection. Use new boxes that are at their full strength and that have not been compromised by humidity or the wear and tear of previous use. Seal your box with heavy-duty tape (preferably reinforced), by applying three strips to both the top and bottom of the box, so that the middle seam and the two edge seams are sealed. Use only dense cushioning material to protect your heavy package contents. Expanded Polystyrene Peanuts and crumpled paper won't protect your shipment effectively because both materials crush and shift under heavy loads. Customized corrugated board or engineered foam enclosures are more effective and reinforce the rigidity of the outer box.
