Granite Square Shipping Packaging Guidelines

It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that proper packaging is used and that contents of packages are adequately and securely packed, wrapped, and cushioned for transportation.

Granite Square Shipping and USPS are not liable for damages due to improper packaging.

Please be sure to follow these packaging guidelines when preparing your package for shipment with Granite Square Shipping.

When sending a package, there are several easy steps that make your package more secure and easier to ship.

The Box
Choose a box with enough room for cushioning material around the contents. If you are reusing a box, cover all previous labels and markings with heavy black marker or adhesive labels.

Cushioning
Place the cushioning all around your items. Close and shake the box to see whether you have enough cushioning. Add more newspaper, styrofoam, bubble wrap if you hear items shifting.

Sealing
Tape the opening of your box and reinforce all seams with 2” wide tape. Use clear or brown packaging tape, reinforced packing tape or paper tape. Do not use cord, string or twine because they get caught in mail processing equipment.

Correct Address
Using a complete and correct address is critical for efficient delivery. Use ZIP Code + 4 when possible.
Locate a correct address for accurate mailing.
