Improperly folded and packed suits can leave unsightly creases that can sometimes become impossible to remove. Thus, it is important to know the basic folding techniques when packing a suit for shipping. Simply placing the suit in a garment bag and dumping it in a shipping box is not a good idea. Here are some tips on how to properly pack and ship a suit to make sure that it arrives in its destination damaged-free:
Turn the jacket inside out and fold it so that one shoulder nests inside the other.
Stuff tissue paper inside the shoulders to prevent crushing.
Fold the coat in half but try to keep the fold as thick as possible by putting the folded trousers inside.
Put the folded suit in a box large enough to accommodate it, not too big as it may shift during transit and not too small to be too stuffed. Use plastic/dry cleaning bags on top and below to prevent creasing.
Seal the box, address it and take to a trusted shipping company.
