I have a bicycle, TV etc. How do I pack irregular sized items?

We suggest  trying to contact the manufacturer for the original box it came in.

One customer didn't have original boxes, so he made his own. Check out his pictures

First I got ready. Blanket on floor, tape, bubblewrap, scissors, PP banding etc

Placed TV on the blanket

Oops, skipped a step. Wrapped in air cap.
Wrapped blanket around and taped.

Next placed on corrugated cardboard.

Wrapped around & taped

Enclosed the ends.

 

For especially fragile items - 2 or 3 layers is best.

Finally, affixed PP bands, fragile stickers, this way up arrows and shipping mark.
