These devices are usually operated by rechargeable batteries. With the advancement in technology, modern baby monitors are now equipped with cameras on the transmitter units and LCD screens on the receivers. Some also include night vision features and motion detection.
Like any other electronic device, a baby monitor must be properly packed prior to shipping to protect the items from damage caused by impact and rough handling during transit. Here are some tips on how to properly pack and ship a baby monitor.
Use the baby monitor’s original packaging if available. Place the receiver unit, transmitter unit and other components in their designated compartment in the original box. Use pieces of bubble wrap to fill any empty space to prevent movement. Close the package and seal it with tape. Double box with sufficient packing materials all around and seal the outer box with packaging tape.
If the original box in not available, wrap each of the components generously with bubble wrap. Use tape to secure the wrap in place. Arrange the items inside an appropriately sized box with packaging materials on all sides, top, bottom and between the items. The box should be well-packed with no space for movement. Close and seal the package and double box as described above.
Address and label the package and take to the post office or shipping company.
