Pack n send is addressing computer shipping separately from electronics shipping in this blog. Customers call us with questions frequently about how to pack computers.
When looking for a company that can pack and ship your computers ,make sure that they offer shipping options. They should be able to ship boxes, pallets, truckloads or containers of electronics.
Be sure to ask questions about packing. Does the company you choose have experience packing and shipping high value computers.
The computers should be packed as follows:
Individual computers should be prepared for shipping using antistatic plastic or bubble wrap. Once the computer is wrapped, it should put into a double wall box with a minimum of 3" of Styrofoam peanuts or solid Styrofoam pieces protecting the electronics equipment.
Large quantities of computers should be boxed and then placed on pallets framed with 1x4’s, Styrofoam and thick cardboard. Protective wrap should then put around the entire pallet.
Ask if the company you choose to use offers onsite packing, crating and shipping.
As an alternative, ask if the company has the capability to pick up your computers.
Does the company you choose offer full value coverage in case of loss or damage during the pick up, packing and shipping process?
There are other areas that need to be addressed when shipping high value computers.
