Holiday storage tips for retail
If it goes "clunk" it ain't packed safely.
When wraping ornaments and other delicate items: ■ Use ornament boxes and lots of bubble wrap. ■ When a box is packed, fill the remaining crevices and gaps with packing peanuts and additional paper. If you can hear clunking noises when you gently move the box, then your items are not yet secure. Close and tape the box firmly to prevent unintended spilling or box breaking. ■ Mark the outside of the box “fragile” on at least three sides using a thick, black marker. When loading the boxes into a vehicle, be sure not to stack heavy items on top. Also, if possible, secure fragile boxes using cords and cables to prevent additional moving in transit.
