Step 4: Put it all together

Before you finish up, here are a few more points to consider:

     
  • Cover the bottom of the box with packing materials before you place anything into it.

  • Ensure that the objects do not touch the sides of the box. If you can, keep at least an inch of packing material between the objects and the sides of the box.

  • Pack things tightly and leave as few gaps as you can. When you finally close the box, it should feel as if you're compressing the materials slightly.

  • Pick up the box and shake it, if possible. You should not hear anything rattling around in there. Once satisfied, seal the box with a piece of tape that's long enough to extend several inches down either side of the box.
