While fragile like any other electronic device, you can safely and successfully ship a robotic vacuum cleaner by following the tips below.
The best way to ship a robotic vacuum cleaner is by double boxing it in its original packaging. The original box usually contains custom foam box inserts that snugly accommodate the robotic vacuum cleaner and its accessories so they don’t move around in the box. Just place the vacuum cleaner and accessories in their allotted spaces, make sure that they don’t move when shaken, then close and seal the original box. In case of movement, fill any empty space with bubble wrap. Place the original packaging in a slightly larger shipping box, and fill the space between the two boxes with ample packing materials to prevent movement.
If shipping without the original packaging, wrap the robotic vacuum cleaner and accessories in several layers of bubble wrap. Place in a sturdy cardboard box with packing materials on all sides top and bottom to prevent movement. Seal the box and double box as described previously.
Address and label the box for shipping. Take the package to the post office and determine how much postage is required to ship it to its destination. Consider insurance if shipping a high-end device to protect you in case the package gets lost or damaged in transit.
