A gaming chair is a legless, upholstered, and usually curved or L-shaped seat used when playing video games. It is designed to provide players comfort and ensure hours of gaming without aching posteriors.
Some models contain built-in electronic devices like loudspeakers and vibration to enhance the video game experience. Others have the ability to rock or slide and feature pockets for conveniently storing different types of controllers and other gaming essentials.
When transporting a gaming chair, it must be properly packed to ensure that it arrives free from damages such as scratches, punctured leather seats, and broken electrical components. Here are some tips on how to properly pack and ship a gaming chair so that it gets to its destination intact and in excellent working condition.
Remove any detachable part, such as a headrest, and wrap the entire gaming chair in several layers of bubble wrap. Also, bubble wrap the detached part separately. Use tape to secure the wrap in place and prevent it from unfurling later on.
Make sure to provide extra padding and cushion to areas that are prone to damage such as corners and edges. Also, protect speakers or control panels with sufficient bubble wrap.
Get a sturdy cardboard shipping box that is big enough to accommodate the chair and provide at least 2 inches of extra space on all sides, top, and bottom. Fill the bottom with a layer of packing peanuts and place the wrapped seat on top. Add more packing peanuts on the sides, halfway through the box. Place the other parts inside the box and fill to the top with packing peanuts. The box should be well-stuffed with peanuts so the chair and its accessories do not move.
Close and seal the box with heavy-duty packaging tape. Make sure that even the bottom flaps are reinforced with tape so there is no chance for it to burst open during handling and transport. Address and label the package and take to your carrier of choice.
