When dealing with specialist equipment, it is important to ensure it is packed safely for transportation. See our helpful guide below for some simple tips and advice.
For higher value shipments, Flints can arrange collection of your pre-packed items with full insurance.
Wrap each item in at least three or four layers of bubble wrap and tape securely. Pay special attention to lenses and optics.
Select a strong cardboard box, preferably double-walled, and ensure a gap of at least two inches between the items and the sidewall.
Void Fill, also known as packing peanuts, is an ideal material to fill the gaps in between items. If unavailable, however, bubble wrap or screwed up newspaper would be suitable.
Ensure the contents are tightly packed and when the box is sealed there is no movement when shaken.
