Some things to note about:
- The number and size of vacuum bags used will depend on your item and our team's judgment during repacking. Please be rest assured that we will do our best to fit as many items as possible inside the less and smallest vacuum bags possible. We will try to make your items as compact as possible to save on your shipping fee.
- If your item is too small or too less to vacuum pack, we may determine that this service is unnecessary and will not charge you for it.
- For plushies, after vacuum packing, sometimes it might resulting the vacuum bag's shape to not be ideal, which can result in wasted space. In such cases, our team may use some of the plushies as fillers to occupy the wasted space instead of vacuuming them all.
