to Prepare Your Shipment
Choose a box with enough room for cushioning material
around the contents. If you are reusing a box, cover
all previous labels and markings with heavy black
marker or adhesive labels.
Place the cushioning all around your items. Close
and shake the box to see whether you have enough
cushioning. Add more newspaper, styrofoam, bubble
wrap if you hear items shifting.
Tape the opening of your box and reinforce all seams
with 2” wide tape. Use clear or brown packaging
tape, reinforced packing tape or paper tape. Do
not use cord, string or twine because they get caught
in mail processing equipment.
