We will repack your package if the difference between the actual weight and volumetric weight exceeds 2kg.
Yes, there will be a repacking fee of S$6. Rest assured we will ensure that you enjoy savings on your package even after taking into account the repacking fee.
Please note that if the merchant delivers a product that arrives at our shipping centre in conditions deemed unsuitable for shipping, you will incur additional repacking cost on the package.
Here are some scenarios in which we will not repack:
a. when the package contains leather products, e.g. handbags, purses, coats, etc.
b. when the package contains restricted items, such as perfume, standalone batteries, fuels, etc.
c. when the package is marked 'FRAGILE'.
d. when the package is obviously a gift, i.e. packed in a gift box, secured with ribbon and gift card, etc.
There are also packages which are specially packed to ensure breakable items are cushioned. As such packages would potentially be bulky, the difference between the actual weight and volumetric weight may be higher. We will take into account such instances and repack only when the safety of the package will not be compromised.
The decision to repack a package will be made at the discretion of vPost.
No. We will not combine multiple packages as it may potentially hinder the claims process in the event your package is lost or damaged during transit.
No. This option is currently unavailable. Rest assured we will ensure that you enjoy savings on your package even after taking into account the repacking fee. In addition, we will only repack when the safety of the package will not be compromised.
vPost will repack your package by minimising the height of the package, thus reducing the volumetric weight. Note that we will not be able to cut down all sides of the package. If available, vPost may also repack your package by putting them in a new smaller box.
