Packing your boxes, pallets and barrel well is key to minimizing damages
- Make sure all fragile items are heavily bubble-wrapped and secured well in the box. Use Styrofoam peanuts, clothing, pillows, etc to provide extra cushion.
- Make sure all boxes are packed FULL. If there are voids in the boxes, they can easily collapse which can cause damage.
- Make sure your boxes are securely closed using adhesive tape or carton staple.
- Label your boxes with your first and last name, phone number and the amount of boxes you have.
