Whether you need to ship your belongings across the country or put them
in a storage unit until you can retrieve them, you should make sure you
pack them properly. Proper packaging will keep your things safe until
you or your intended recipient can access them again. Continue reading
for tips on how to properly package your items for shipment.
When you’re getting ready to ship something across the world or to
the next town over, you should take the time to package it properly. You
can start by purchasing sturdy packing boxes that were actually meant
for packing, because used boxes might break down after packing. You should
also add bubble wrap or newspaper to boxes with fragile materials for
extra padding, which is a great idea for glassware and sentimental materials.
Make sure your items and their padding fill out the entire box so there’s
no room for movement.
