Packing your furniture
If you have original packing box the furniture came in, then it is best to pack them back in it. You will have all the covers, bubble wraps in the packing box and all you need to do is fit the furniture parts in the box and seal it with packing tape.
In case if you don’t have the original box of the furniture, you can get some good sturdy boxes from your local supermarket or any hardware stores. Use bubble wraps to fully cushion your furniture against any breakage. Any other packing materials you use should be checked thoroughly to see if it doesn’t contain any sharp or scraping material in it which could damage the furniture.
While using your own box for the packing, use enough packing materials so that the furniture is properly sealed in and doesn’t move during the transportation. Use sufficient packing materials both above and below the box so that it can withstand any shocks during the ride.
