Once the items are back at the warehouse, our standard pack protocol is to bubble-wrap and cardboard-box the furniture items. Then, everything gets safely banded and secured to shipping pallets. We do this for two reasons: 1) the items are consolidated and secured, which of course reduces the chance for loss during transit, and 2) they can quickly be loaded on and off the truck using industrial machinery, eliminating the possibility of damage due to improper handling.
The most common packaging method involves boxing the goods individually or wrapping and consolidating them in a heavy-duty container. Most household goods are packed in plastic bubble wrap or foam before being boxed in heavy-duty cartons. In the case of fragile goods, such as glass, marble, or artwork, crating in wood may be necessary. Once your goods have been individually packaged or consolidated, they will be placed onto shipping pallets and secured with plastic shrink-wrap and banding. In all cases, our packaging standards exceed the manufacturer’s specifications.
