Sending Something Awkward?

Pack & Send Takapuna is your "one stop shop" when you need to send unusually awkward items – anywhere.  No matter how large, unwieldy, fragile the item is, you can rely on Pack & Send's experienced operators to package it and get it delivered, safely.

Jane and Jeremy Bain, the franchisees at Pack & Send Takapuna have a "no limits" approach when helping  customers solve packaging and freight problems around difficult items to send.

"Many of the items we have dealt with are considered too difficult for a general freight." says Jeremy. 

“Our customers have used us to package and send such items as long yacht masts, architectural models and large sculptures.” says Jane.        

Many of these items are valuable so Pack & Send Takapuna customers can use their Gold Service cover against loss or damage to secure that extra peace of mind - something not generally available when freighting goods of high value.

For those really delicate items like fine antiques or ceramics, Pack & Send Takapuna can use its state of the art "Foam in Place" packaging system, which forms a protective mould around the item, for safe transport.

"We also produce custom made boxes to any size or shape" adds Jeremy.  "Because we treat each consignment as unique, designing packaging and the freight solutions to suit, we're finding that more and more people benefit from our services.”

Pack & Send Takapuna provides service, systems and packaging to make your freight experience as simple and smooth as possible. You don't need to open an account; they send anything, anywhere and take care of the hassles

The “no limits” service they provide creates legions of raving fans like Jane G of Chatswood:-

 “I had fragile, old and precious cargo to freight from the Waikato to Auckland. An awkward item, a challenging location and limited ability to help with removal. After many unsuccessful calls to companies advertising their skills in this type of move, I came upon Pack & Send. They were incredible from start to finish. Jeremy showed a level of interest, care and concern that is uncommon in this day and age, and took pains to ensure that the job was handled with care and diligence. The item was packed very safely, transported without hassle and delivered without incident. Communication was clear and forthcoming throughout. I realise I'm gushing, but their service was truly that good. I'm kind of hoping for more situations where I need to use them!” Jane G - Chatswood
