I post bad shipped packages almost monthly on the ZRXOA 🙂
With picture and explanations. I have for way over a decade. I need to start putting than on my website too.
Use a large box…larger than what you are thinking.
NO bubble wrap
NO air pillows…bubbles and pillows get punctured immediately.
Use LOTS of newspaper, wadded up.
Use lots of packaging tape. Twice as much as you are thinking.
The box must easily withstand an eight foot drop…because…it will be drop kicked from at least that high, and then compressed under a couple tons of other stuff. You package will NOT be the last loaded on the truck.
