Packaging Essentials You Must Check Before Making the Tile Purchase
26 March 2020
You know you have made a safe and reliable deal when your deal includes this important attribute – ‘attention to detail’. Ensuring that your supplier is providing quality tiles is not it – there’s more to it. Tile buyers often make this mistake of not enquiring about packaging details to the manufacturers and they may end up causing more harm than good.
Packaging is the most important and basic element of customer service. While buying tiles from a tile manufacturer, checking for packaging requisites is the most important part before you join hands with them. As an industry-leading tile exporter in India, we understand how important it is to ensure robust packaging so that you could eliminate the risk of probable in-transit breakages.
Here’s the checklist of what should you consider in packaging terms before sealing the deal.
For domestic purchase of tiles
SakarMarbo has a great reputation in the domestic market. For more than two decades now, we are catering our exclusive range of floor and wall tile to a lot of distributors and showrooms in India. As a leading tile supplier in India, here’s our checklist for packaging essentials that you must consider while purchasing tiles from the domestic market.
The standard tiles packaging for the domestic market involves durable, good quality boxes that are carefully designed to allow optimal use of space available in it.
There should be protection corners placed in the box before placing the tiles to ensure that the container could get through the transit safely, eliminating the risks of damages.
Make sure that the boxes have proper strapping on it so it does not get opened during transit.
Fill the void
Ensure that there is no space left in the container for the tiles to move or get affected by the strain that it may have to face in transit.
For international purchase of tiles
We cater to a myriad of international clients and so our logistics department has devised a standard packaging system for safe export of tiles. We are fully committed to providing the best possible packaging so that our clients could receive the tile containers intact and fine, just the way it was shipped from our factory.
Here’s the checklist for packaging essentials that you need to consider for the international purchase of tiles.
Quality Wooden Pallet Packaging
A premium quality, standard-sized wooden pallet packaging is a must for international transit. The packaging should be robust and it should make the optimal use of weight and space available.
As the medium for international tile export is the sea, make sure that the material of the packaging is fumigated. This means that the container should be seaworthy and should remain unaffected in case if it comes in contact with moisture or water droplets.
The void in the container should be filled with airbags so that the tiles stay tight and sit well in place.
Proper wrapping and secure sealing
The wooden pallet should be wrapped with plastic and sealed with stripes to make sure that the material in the container stays perfectly fine.
Safe loading and unloading
Our logistics department collaborates closely with logistic companies to ensure that the loading and unloading procedures are conducted with proper care.
So, before you make your tile purchase, follow the above checklist and make sure you have joined hands with a reliable tile manufacturer.
