The crux of the matter is "we take all possible steps" to ensure 100% that your polished granite slabs and polished marble slabs reach safely to your destinations.
Slabs CIDG Packing
- Large Marble Slabs and Large Granite slabs are packed in fumigated wooden bundles / crates with the help of C-clamp. Our wooden bundles are always being made by best quality wood and firmly locked / fastened. Slabs in the bundles are tightly compressed. CIDG put a plastic sheet between each slab to avoid friction during the transit. We tightly and correctly fastened / locked all wooden bundles between each other and nailed down to the floor of the container so that the bundles can not shift during transit.

As per international Norms, we pack our stone tiles directly in fumigated wooden crates, each tile is to be separated by soft paper strips which will avoid friction during the transit. CIDG put a polythene sheet as a cover on each wooden crate / wooden pallet and then we tighten each wooden crate with iron / plastic strip. Inside the container, the wooden crates are being tightly locked / fastened to each other so that the boxes can not shift.
