Packing and shipping your gadgets


  • Properly packing your laptop is extremely important. As a general guideline, use a box with at least a 2" air gap between the laptop and the box on the top, bottom and sides of your laptop. Fill this air gap with packing popcorn, bubble wrap, or similar protective material. It is advisable to bubble wrap your laptop and then use protective popcorn to fill in the remainder of the air gap. The packing material should fill the entire air gap.
  • *Pack it the way it arrived. If you still have the box that it came in, put everything back the same the way that it arrived originally.
  • Remove the battery from the laptop. Wrap it in layer of bubble wrap and use the packing tape to seal the wrap. Wrap any extra equipment the same way.
  • Wrap the laptop in a double layer of bubble wrap
  • Lay the bubble wrapped items in the box. Fill any extra space around the laptop and accessories with packing peanuts.
  • Lay the bubble wrapped items in the box. Fill any extra space around the laptop and accessories with packing peanuts.
  • Close the box lid and secure with packing tape. It is always a good idea to tape all open edges also. To make the box extra secure, re-tape the bottom of the box.
  • Drop off the box according to the chosen carrier
