Packing a winter coat can get a bit complicated. You want to make sure that the item is properly packed to ensure that it arrives without any damage. The key to successfully ship a winter coat is finding a properly-sized and sturdy cardboard shipping box. Pick a box that is not too small and cramped for the item nor too large that the coat will be shifting all over the box during transit. The best box is one that can accommodate the winter coat comfortably.
The next step is wrapping the coat for protection against dirt and moisture. Even if the coat is already water-proof, it is still a good idea to place it in a plastic bag. This will keep dust, dirt, and moisture away from the item in case a mishap occurs during transit.
Place the wrapped coat inside the shipping box. Fill the empty spaces with packaging material such as packing peanuts or shredded paper. These will prevent the coat from shifting inside the box which can cause all sorts of damage.
Close the box and seal with packaging tape. Address and label the package according to shipper requirements, pay for the service and hand the item over to the postal service or shipping company providing the service.
