Packing for Shipping

February 7th, 2017 by

Shipments arrive safely when properly packed.

Domestic US shipping involves more than choosing the right carrier – UPS, FedEx, USPS, or freight. Packing for shipping requirements vary and are┬ábased on the following factors:

  • Size – length plus girth over 166 inches
  • Weight – total weight over 150 pounds
  • Fragility – antiques, electronics, artwork, glass
  • Orientation – item must remain in upright position
  • Value – high-value items require additional packaging

Pictures speak a thousand words.

  • The keyboard needed to remain upright throughout its journey.
  • The blanket-wrap freight carrier required a crate for the large, fragile glass table top. The table and chairs will be wrapped in blankets for transportation.
  • The small parquet table was wrapped in protective blankets and secured with Styrofoam. It shipped as a small package with FedEx Home.
  • The USAFA graduate‘s trunk and totes weighed 235 pounds and shipped as freight on a pallet.
