Because international shipments take so long, we usually remove the seller’s original packaging – often very skimpy – and repack your item with our own packing materials. If we don’t do this, the item you receive will most likely be damaged during the long international shipping period.

The main material is showing in the photo. We will use different packing material according to your item.

Firstly of all, we will find a suitable box to hold all your items. In order to protect items from damage during international transportation, we will fill the carton with filling material if it is little larger. If we cannot find suitable box, we will cut down the box to suit your items. Different products will adopt packing method generally.
