Lighting fixtures such as table lamps, sconces, small chandeliers, pendant light, etc., are easy to ship as long as you know the proper procedures in packing them for safe shipping. Here are practical tips on how to properly pack and ship lighting fixtures and ensure that they arrive intact and in good working condition.
Remove all bulbs and dangling parts, if possible. Wrap each removable parts with tissue paper and then with bubble wrap.
Also protect the base of a lamp, framework of a chandelier or glass casing/shades of sconces with tissue paper and bubble wrap.
Use a sturdy cardboard box as your shipping container. Corrugated cardboard boxes with ridges of air cushions are the best choice because it is stronger and absorbs shocks better than plain cardboard.
You can also re-use to cut on costs and help save the environment, just make sure that all labels and printing are removed or thoroughly crossed out.
Use a lot of packing materials when shipping lighting fixtures. These will absorb vibrations and prevents shifting and avoids damage to the items.
Close the box make sure that the package is well-sealed with several strips of packing tape.
Address and label the package with “Handle with Care,” and “Fragile.”
Take the package to your local post office or shipping company of your choice.
