Tips for Packing Barrels**

Remember, when your barrel is delivered to the shipping company to be shipped overseas, it will be loaded, packed and stacked on top or below other barrels, boxes and other items in a 20 foot or 40 foot container. This container will then be stacked on a ship with hundreds more. Because of this, the way you pack your items can certainly influence the way your items will be received at the destination.

  • Sort all items before packing. Toiletries, canned food, dried food, clothes, heavy items etc. Tape the cover of liquid items. Canned items should never be placed next to or on top of bottles and items with liquid as they tend to squeeze out during shipping. Heavy items should never be placed on top of these bottled items as well. Instead keep bottled items on top of canned and heavy items. Place them in bags just in case some spillage occurs.
  • Put heavier items, and canned food to the bottom; trying to keep similar shaped items together. It’s always a good idea to put canned items in bags just in the event spillage occurs during shipping.
  • Soap items should never be shipped with food items as the scent is usually transferred to food items in the barrel.
  • Put clothing items and boxed items next
  • Dried foods, rice and fragile items should be packed closer to the top. While there are no guarantees on shipping glass and fragile items, it is best to have these packaged, crated and shipped separately.
  • As you pack, small items can be squeezed into small spaces to make the best of the space.
  • Clothes, towels, linens can be used as protection to separate heavy items from more delicate items on top.

**Tips given are just a guideline and does not guarantee that there won’t be damaged or spilled items in barrels.
