If you're sending in a brand new unopened phone packing it is much easier, simply place it into a large envelope preferably a jiffy bag which has protection on the inside , seal it and attach the relevant labels.
The great thing is you can use items already in your house to securely package your gadgets to ensure they arrive safely.
Here are 4 quick and simple ways:
The original manufacturer packaging can be used however if it is quite old, make sure you use another box as well to ensure your device is thoroughly protected in transit. If you use this method it is recommended the new box should be at least 6 inches longer, wider and higher than the manufacturers original. Make sure enough protection is placed around the original box to avoid any unnecessary movements.
Newspaper is an everyday item that a majority will have lying around at home. If you don't have the original box you can wrap newspaper around it as many times as possible creating a large protective layer. This protective shield can then be placed into a secure box and sealed up.
If you have old clothes to throw away think twice, most will usually have a good level of thickness so they can offer ideal protection for devices which tend to be fragile. Using a couple of items can offer a good level of support, this will also save you having to throw them away!
Tips - if you've wrapped your phone up and put it in a box, use newspaper to fill in any gaps, this will stop the device from moving.
